-Feel lost without sheet music? Reading music is very important, but it’s equally important to develop your ear in playing saxophone. A better ear will help you take better solos and be able to learn all sorts of music that would have only been available through written music without this ability.

Transcribe for Windows
Transcribe for Mac
Transcribe helps to work out a piece of music from a recording, in order to write it out, or play it themselves, or both. It doesn’t do the transcribing for you, but it is essentially a specialized player program which is optimized for the purpose of transcription. It has many transcription-specific features not found on conventional music players.
It is also used by many people for play-along practice. It can change pitch and speed instantly, and you can store and recall any number of named loops.
