A day with My Sheet Music Transcriptions vol. 6 – Sabas, transcriber

Today we bring you the sixth part of our “Behind the Scenes” series, where you’ll know more about Sabas’ life as a transcriber.

What’s up, everybody? In this post, we’ll take a sneak peek into Sabas’ routine. This one feels special because we had never talked about a transcriber here before. Aren’t you curious about it? We are!

What does he exactly do?

Sabas is part of our amazing transcriber’s team. To put it simply, he makes magic happen! Every piece of audio you can think of, this guy can put it into sheet music. Transcribers are the real heart of our project, and we couldn’t be more thankful for the work they do.

What’s his daily routine?

So, Sabas works from home, as most of our transcribers do. Dealing with several completely different transcription requests every week, he needs to be organized. To do so, Sabas uses color codes to establish priorities, deadlines, etc. He always starts his day with a clear picture of his tasks so he doesn’t miss a thing -Did you notice everyone in this company is extremely organized?! Now I’m starting to feel bad myself…

Sabas also prefers to start working really early, as he likes to have some work done by 10 am. This way he already feels motivated and productive for the rest of the morning. A good tip here, Sabas!

Obviously, Sabas has a particular space in the house just for transcribing. There, he’s set up two screens to work with: in one, he has the transcribing program, in the other one, the sheet music editor program. He loves to make use of tech gadgets. As we explained in our recent blogpost “Transcribe Like a Pro“,  these programs can save you tons of time and work if you use them well. 

The coolest de-stressing method

Transcribing requires a particularly big attention span, and Sabas has his (very) particular method to de-stress after an intense transcription. Yes, you might have guessed it from the picture: he solves a Rubik’s Cube! Sabas takes only seconds to solve the whole thing and helps him take his mind away from transcribing. We love this little trick… Although for the rest of mortals, it seems more stressful than relaxing!

Ear-training and getting into the studio

What Sabas loves the most about being a transcriber is that he can learn new things every day. He enjoys working on different genres, as he gets to interiorize ideas he then can apply to his music. Also, he tells us how his ear-training is much more precise since he is a pro transcriber. Isn’t it amazing how our bodies and abilities get stronger when we put them in motion?

Sabas can never stop making music. Usually, when he finishes transcribing, he hops into his little at-home studio. Of course, who doesn’t enjoy those moments when creativity flows after a day of work?

And that is all, amigos! Thanks for reading us and hope you learned and had fun with Sabas today 🙂
