Sonivox has announced Pitch2MIDI, a new real-time audio to MIDI conversion plugin for Mac OS X and Windows in VST, AU and AAX plugin formats.
Here's what the say:
SONiVOX recognizes that singers and instrumentalists also want the ability to play and record music with software virtual instruments. But until today, they haven't been able to do so in the same way as their keyboard or drum controller co-musicians have. Now they can. This is because SONiVOX's Pitch2MIDI software plugin doesn't require you to record your audio first, then stop and wait to hear the results as the audio is pre-processed. SONiVOX's Pitch2MIDI software works in real time, immediately converting the audio signal into MIDI events so you can hear the results while your singing or playing. The old way of first having to record your audio severely hampered the artist's ability to create spontaneously. With Pitch2MIDI, artists can sing or play while hearing their virtual instruments at the same time.
Pitch2MIDI is an audio effect plug-in that takes real-time vocal or instrumental monophonic audio input and instantly transforms it into accurate MIDI output. Using the built-in synthesizer, artists can use their voice or instrument to play any one of over 100 synth sounds directly, or bypass the internal synth and send MIDI out to any of hundreds of popular virtual instruments on the market. Since it's real-time, it's not necessary to record the audio first or process it before hearing the results. Instead, it's instantaneous—MIDI output is created as the artist sings or plays.
Not only will vocalists and instrumentalists love using this, but it's also perfect for producers too. Now they can immediately add new sonic layers and textures to their audio tracks, without needing to do any post-recording processing.
Pitch2MIDI sets creativity free by removing the "record-then-process" obstacle. If you can hear it in your imagination, Pitch2MIDI will deliver it in reality.
- Play virtual instruments using your vocals, instrument, or any monophonic audio in real time.
- Built-in synthesizer with over 100 sounds.
- Sends MIDI out of the plugin so you can play any VSTi of your choice.
- Instantly add new layers of harmony or sonic textures.
- Real-time graphic display of audio and MIDI conversion.
- No MIDI interface needed to communicate between applications.
Pitch2MIDI by SONiVOX will be available for $149.99 in early February with a full 15 day trial.
