Audio to midi

Postby dixita » Wed Jul 19, 2017 10:44 am


This is a way of working I do quite often and really enjoy:

Playing the guitar -> connecting it to Rakarrack -> muting everything guitar sounding, only using the midi converter -> connecting these midi signals to a synth or something else midi -> voila! my guitar is a synth!

But I meet a couple of issues along the way.

1/ When using Rakarack this way, I'm not able to make the midi signals release, they get stuck. This means I cannot use long lasting synths like a pad or something, as each tone will just be playing forever. It also means recording the midi gets really messy - every new note goes into a giant cluster.
2/ The Rakarrack audio to midi converter is (as far as I understand) not sensitive for velocity. So it's difficult to play with dynamics, and easily gets a bit flat sounding.

So my questions are:
Is there a better way for converting audio to midi? Maybe even velocity sensitive?
In Rakarrack - why won't the midi signals release, is there a way to fix this?
