Capture the notes from live vocals or instruments such as guitar, bass, or trumpet, and transcribe songs without taking your hands off of the instrument. The musical pitch of the live instruments are detected by the app, and translated into MIDI notes for applications such as Garage Band, Logic, or Pro Tools.
The app supports both Apple Core MIDI, and the DSMIDIWifi standard, making it easy to connect to Mac OSX, Windows, and Linux.
The pitch detection is fast enough to capture playing at moderate speeds in real time. For faster melodies, you can record the audio with the app, and then convert to MIDI notes later. You can also play slowly, and then adjust the speed of the MIDI playback with your sequencer. The app detects a single pitch at a time.
For anyone developing a sense of pitch, the app also provides a visual cue to the note being played — the display is large and clear, making it easy to see when your device is sitting on a music stand.
The app supports background audio processing. You can use a synthesizer app in the foreground, while triggering notes with a guitar, bass, or with your voice. Some synthesizer apps are compute intensive — Audio MIDI Connect is also compute intensive, so the best results will be with faster devices, and less complex synth sounds.
