I have always been frustrated with the length of time necessary to
notate a piece of music. Computers have simplified so many other
aspects of our lives, it seems that they should be able to simplify
this task as well. In fact, there are already two distinct ways that
engineers have attempted to attack this problem. The first analyzes
the waveform generated by microphone input and relies on Fourier
Analysis and other similar methods. The other examines the analog
signal generated by a electric guitar-like pickup placed beneath the
strings. The method used by Fastab relies much less on the musical
properties of an instrument. Instead, Fastab records where and when
the fingers and pick contact the instrument using digital electronics
and microprocessor technology. Fastab provides a solution to the
pitch to notation problem which is cheaper and more accurate than any
other device available today.
