General overview

Although Transcribe! has quite a few features, you 

will figure out the most important functions in a few minutes. 

Whether you use Transcribe! for transcribing (notate music/speech by ear), practicing music, study dance

(or movements in general) or annotate speech, the basic functions will be the same: 

Slowdown, loops, markings on the waveform, text blocks and bookmarks.

The two key features of Transcribe!


What I appreciate the most aboutTranscribe! is the markings you can put on the waveform, to pinpoint exactly where you want to listen or see something in an audio-/video file. 

Secondly, the slowdown function is really helpful when a passage of music, speech or a some movements in a video go by so fast that it is difficult to hear or see what's going on.

Using Transcribe! for music:

As the music is playing you can tap the 'M' and 'B' key to put measure and beat markers on the waveform.

Transcribe! for studying movements:

With the 'M' or 'S' keys, put marks on the waveform and 'T' to write descriptive text above these spots you'd like to study.

Annotate text withTranscribe!

By expanding the area above the waveform you have plenty of space to annotate large amounts of text. (Stretching the waveform horizontally also gives more room to write).
