I’m not sure that I understand what you are saying, but if you are asking for help in transcribing an improvisation then I’m afraid you are going to have to write down what you have played in musical notation. There is no computer programme that can successfully transcribe anything other than a very simple melody, unless you originally played it into a programme like Sibelius, and even then you are likely to run into huge problems, unless you play like a robot. Also, I thought the whole point of an improvisation was that it is just that. If you write it down it is no longer an improvisation, although quite a few composers have called pieces they have written “improvisations”, e.g. Karg-Elert.
