Voice Band for iPhone


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QxN1u7KWDM

So I’ve been playing with Voice Band (iTunes link) for about 30 minutes and I can definitely say it’s fun. Like many iPhone Apps I will surely use this from time to time for a weird intro or background part in a song. All it takes is a simple import of the audio into Ableton Live. This does a similar trick as the now unfortunately discontinued Antares Kantos plug-in. Anyone remember Kantos? Read the Sound on Sound review of Kantos: click here

“A new iPhone app that turns your voice into an instrument in real time. You sing into the iPhone, and it turns it into a guitar or a bass, synth, etc.” – WaveMachine Labs, Inc.

Crazy Japanese Piano Audio to Midi


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BiEBN17ZnNI

Here’s something you could blast out your window this Halloween. Akihiko Matsumoto plays with Max/MSP and creates an Audio to Midi set up. Ever since I owned a copy of the now discontinued Antares Kantos (Sound on Sound link) I’ve been playing with Audio to Midi stuff. Lately I have been using Melodyne to do the job. I’ve heard great things about zplane’s vielklang Audio to Midi function but haven’t personally tried it out yet.

Have you tried any Audio to Midi software?
