imitone Beta 0.8.0

imitone Beta 0.8.0

November 5, 2015

This update introduces a greatly improved pitch tracking system.  The accuracy and latency are significantly improved.

Windows:  Download
Mac OS X:  Download


Change Log:

New Features:

+ Pitch Range
    Allows the user to select from three pre-configured pitch ranges:
        Vocal, whistle and full (encompassing both).
        Using vocal or whistle range reduces CPU usage.
       
+ Scale Button
    Allows the user to switch between a variety of scales.
    This will be developed into a proper menu later.
   
+ Tracking Mode (tortoise & hare)
    Allows a choice between responsive and careful pitch tracking.
    This is experimental and may be removed later.
   
+ Note Mode
    Consolidates the former "glide" and "bend" settings.
    A new "portamento" mode has been added.
    More modes will be added later.

Changes:

Tone Stabilization was rewritten and improved slightly.
    ...But a much more effective tone stabilizer is planned.
Automatic volume adjustment is now much more intelligent.

imitone's visual size was increased from 500x550 to 600x660.
The sequencer's appearance was adjusted, and notes now appear rounded.
The UI was re-designed for a more polished, less "fuzzy" appearance.

Fixes:

Fixed (?) a bug which prevented imitone from working on Windows when the system username
    contains foreign characters
Input and output devices are now properly remembered between runs.
The automatic volume setting is properly remembered between runs.
Various other fixes.

Known issues:

CPU usage is generally higher than in 0.7.0, pending optimization.
    - Setting the range to "vocal" or "whistle" helps.
Pitch tracking is jittery when the user's voice is not much louder than background noise.
Note range is not stored between runs.

Re: imitone Beta 0.8.0

hey dude, good job on the update. Its made such a huge difference. Im still just a noob when it comes to songwriting, but I can see myself throwing out my midi keyboard and just straight up using this software to create all of the melodies for the songs i make. keep up the good work

Re: imitone Beta 0.8.0

Hey, Mike --

It sounds like your download didn't complete.  Give it another try.

Currently imitone is a 32-bit application on Windows and Mac.  I'll be making 64-bit versions in the future, which should run a lot faster (where supported).

Re: imitone Beta 0.8.0

Hello, levieu --

As far as I understand, Studio One has a "white-list" of known MIDI devices, and will not display devices unless they are on the list.

To get around this, you can manually configure a controller as described here:  http://music.tutsplus.com/tutorials/set … udio-16986

Re: imitone Beta 0.8.0

Hello! Thanks a lot for this amazing program. My CPU usage while using this version (I am using mac) is at around 55% and that slows everything down while I use Logic. I am using only voice, no whistle.
Thanks for any reply!

Hello, pippi --

You'll be happy to know that I've knocked the CPU usage down by about 33% for the next update.  Expect that later this week.  :)
