» What is Digital Ear Real-time® ?

Digital Ear can analyze a live or recorded solo performance (e.g. a singing voice, a saxophone solo, or any other musical instrument) and convert it into a standard MIDI file!

This file can be played by any synthesizer with a different  voice of your choice, or you can import it into your favorite sequencer or notation software (e.g. Cubase VST, Cakewalk, Sonar, Logic etc.) for mixing with other tracks, automatic transcription, or any further processing.

Digital Ear reads all popular audio files (.wav, .mp3, .wma etc.) or accepts live microphone input.

» View your voice features at a glance! Current note is viewed on the keyboard (left top). The blue dot on the keyboard becomes bigger when your voice becomes louder, while the color of the dot becomes brighter as your voice becomes brighter !

» Beyond simple «Pitch-to-MIDI» conversion...

» Customize Digital Ear. Each musical instrument or human voice is unique. Digital Ear is flexible. It is not constrained in a specific musical instrument, or voice!

Unlike conventional so-called «Pitch-to-MIDI» converters, Digital Ear will send high-resolution pitch events closely matching those of your original sound.

Any vibrato, tremolo, pitch-bend, or portamento effects of your recorded sound will be faithfully converted into MIDI events that can by reproduced into any voice of your synthesizer or sound card.Only Digital Ear can capture the nuance and expressive power of the human music player or vocalist.
