==================

A few weeks ago we announced the polyphonic MIDI Guitar app and now the time has come to the VST and AudioUnit version with even better performance.

MIDI Guitar VST/AU/Standalone

MIDI Guitar is a software solution that turns any guitar into a polyphonic midi monster. It's 5 years(!) under development and based upon new patent-pending polyphonic pitch detection and -prediction technology that can accurately recognize polyphonic signals, such as complex chords or finger-playing with very low latency and without spurious hits.

Beta Testing / Early Access / Download

After three rounds of closed beta testing here at KVR, we have decided to open up the gates for everybody.

However, in order for us to focus on development of MIDI Guitar, we have changed the scheme from handling each of your requests individually, to offering a free trial function that lets anyone play with MIDI Guitar and follow developments.

You can find instructions to download MIDI Guitar here:
http://www.jamorigin.com/midi-guitar/vst.html

We would like MIDI Guitar development to be driven by You users and Your needs. Please help us frame the product in this thread and share your thoughts and ideas.


Remarks to these early beta versions:

Not suited for non-real-time processing yet!
We dont take advantage of non-real-time analysis yet. Expect big improvements in non-real-time transcription in the upcomming versions.

Not really tweaked for acoustic guitars yet!
But let us know how it goes.

You gotta be in standard, absolute tuning for now.

Some people have reported problems with some humbucker pickups.
Please let us know your experience with humbuckers.

Some DAWs cannot record or route MIDI Guitar's MIDI output.
Tell the DAW makers. It's mostly a problem on Mac DAWs not supporting VSTs. The standalone MIDI Guitar application should work for any DAW. (On windows you need a virtual midi driver such as loopMidi, loopBe1 or midiOX - free software).

More information can be found onthis site


F.A.Q.

Nice product, how can I get involved?
Tell us what you want MIDI Guitar to be.
Let us know if you can help making video or audio material of MIDI Guitar in action or can help with UI re-design.

Will it transcribe a bass or other instruments?
No. It is heavily tweaked for guitars. We will consider other instruments later.

Can I use it to post-process and get MIDI out of recordings?
Yes, but have in mind that it will not take advantage of non-realtime analysis yet. It's also heavily tweaked for clean single instrument guitar tracks, so the general Audio-To-MIDI VST is a different kind of product that we will consider next.

Is this as good as it gets?
No, its not - we have still got headroom for improvements. The current version of MIDI Guitar without any prior knowledge about your type of guitar, pickups, intonation or playing style. It also runs on a tight CPU budget, even on an iPhone (although with higher latency).


We hope you have fun with it!

Sounds really cool, only one question:

does it support strings recognition?
(Eg: not only the played note, but the played string too)

By the way congrats for this software :)

That could be asking a wee bit much from a 1/4 inch input jack input ;)

Yes if you only play the first 5 frets and highs ;)

on a more serious note, the technology comes close to consistently pick the right strings, but its not something which will be available in the first version.

...Or if I play only one guitar string... :)

If you're planning to do that in the future, I think transient analisys is a good approach for this purpouse (see Axon firmware).

Keep on the good work, JamOrigin :)
