Default Convert MIDI directly to sheet music?

I know there is a way to do this in Logic I am just looking for Reaper's equivalent, if it has one. I'd like to edit a MIDI track and then convert the track directly to sheet music. I program a lot of my drum beats anyway, so seems like doing it this way would be way easier than charting it by hand or using a sheet music program to make lead sheets.

I didn't see anything in the manual mentioning this, but maybe I just wasn't looking in the right place.

There's no score editing in Reaper. You'll need to use a third party app for that, although apparently you can rewire reaper to sibelius and others like it so you can stream the midi to it (not something I've done). Hopefully someone who does this can chime in.

Notation view does not exist in Reaper 3. (I've no idea about Reaper 4 onwards)

You can export the Project MIDI (on the File menu) and load it into another app.

Kickass! MuseScore looks like exactly what I need. Getting into it now. Have you ever done an import of MIDI data into MuseScore?

Importing midi into MuseScore is trivial. There is only one potential problem. If the notes are offbeat (I don't know the English term - you have to guess) the score will be a mess as MuseScore tries to guess where the note should go if in the midi file it is +3 or -7 away from the grid. This is true for all notation programs I would guess. The score editor in Logic tries very hard to interpret midi and in most cases the result is reasonable.

For such cases there is a midi file optimizer, written in java, as a research project, free, do not remember the link. Just wanted to mention here, even then there are ways to get a great score pdf.

UPDATE: Found the link: https://mir.sechsachtel.de/midi/

I would even suggest Cockos, contacting the developer of the above algorithm, licensing it for direct inclusion into Reaper, why not? Then all this magic feature would be built in, load any performed midi and get a beautiful score!

most recent versions of reaper do have a notation view in the midi editor and now also a print that to pdf...

it is growing better week by week so watch in the pre release area of the forum...
