Extracting MIDI from audio

    I don't know whether this topic has been discussed before. If, please hint me where to go.

    I'd like to have an audio track (just with a single voice) transformed to midi in order to later control an autotune plugin (after some correction) of that very same track.

    Do you know if Cubase / Logic / PT / Wavelab supports this? Any other software dedicated to this matter?

    Or is there a better way to do it? One idea is of course to play along on a midi-keyboard, but since autotune programs can actually analyze in realtime what note the singer intends to sing it should be possible at least to some extent to extract a midi-track.

    Any tips?

    Well certain hardware processors such as one of the TC Helicon models (VoiceOne) will do pitch-to-midi conversion..... but heres one software solution I came across... Its called Autoscore Studio. Its a fairly affordable program.


    I don't know the exact manner in which it works... its meant for converting pitch into a musical score that you can print out..... but I assume it probably has an option to also convert to MIDI since thats what the web page seems to say.

    I have Melodyne... which is a neat program..... I have not played with it much though.... dont know if it will do pitch to midi.... might want to check into that.

    The audio track needs to be quite clean and single pitched ....
    chords are bad

    so far I haven't seen any of these things work with chords
    so don't expect perfection but they are fun and can get you off to a good start
    the future may bring better results
