Decoding to notes

I’ve got some simple recordings that are single quarter notes played in sequence. Is there a plugin that can decode this into notes? I noticed that the Effect “Change Pitch” decodes to a note, but that would require a lot of work to do a complete song.

Beyond that I do have other songs that are guitar notes played quickly. This would be more difficult to do with the change pitch tool.

Does the plot spectrum tool do this? Is there a tutorial for it? I notice that it decodes frequencies to specific notes (eg F#3), but it’s more complicated than I can figure out through guess work.

There is a really painful way to do that in the spectrum analyzer, but you probably wouldn’t want to do it for hundreds of notes.

Here’s the problem…

That’s one piano note. The richer the timbre of the instrument, the harder it is to pick out the fundamental note.
