Here’s a tip: Don’t use a bass to trigger bass. Just set the octave to what you want and use a guitar at the highest register possible. This is because the software needs a few cycles to figure out the sound and the lower the sound the more time is needed to get a few cycles.
I HAVE to use the bass, 'cause the reason to consider audio-to-MIDI conversion is to play live with synthbass-like sound. I usually play it by hand, but covering for example Thriller - I'm very busy to play all the parts, and the bass line (it's groove and sound/bandwith) is essential to ever consider playing it live. If I want to use any other instrument to recognize notes, I'll use keyboard (I'm keyboard player with 30 years of experience), but it's a different story. My bassist don't play fancy lines, uses 4-string Fender Jazz Bass so there's a chance the software will catch up to what he's playing ;-). If it won't work, then I'll think about something else (hardware-based) or teach him how to play keytar :lol:
