Transcription of Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya!

Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya! is a looping instrumental song that comes from the Japanese community of anime enthusiasts. It seems to be associated with Hatsune Miku in some way. It got popular in the English-speaking community by being used in the Nyan Cat video.

I took the liberty of transcribing this song, and making the sheet music (PDF) and MIDI files available for download. As far as I know, my transcription is pitch-perfect. It matches the Project DIVA video game version of the song.

Technical info: The key of the song is B major with some accidentals, and the tempo is 142 BPM. With its strings of sixteenth notes, its peak note rate is 9.5 Hz (that’s 9.5 notes per second!). The intro to the song is 8 seconds long, and the loop is 27 seconds long.

Note: The transcription to sheet music, the MIDI output, and the Ogg Vorbis rendering are done by Nayuki. The original song is not made by Nayuki.
