imitone Beta 0.8.1

imitone Beta 0.8.1

February 5, 2016

This update introduces "hard triggering", a new mode suitable for controlling "sudden" sounds like piano and guitar.

Windows:  Download
Mac OS X:  Download


Change Log:

New Features:

+ Hard Triggering
    A new trigger mode ideal for guitars, pianos and other stricken/plucked instruments.
        New notes are only triggered by sounds which begin suddenly.
        Attack power appears as a dot on the volume bar.
        Power control is based on attack, and does not change during the note.
        This mode is recommended for guitars, pianos and mallets, among others.

+ Warnings & Guidance
    imitone now displays warnings and advice when it detects certain problems:
        - Overly loud input
        - Silent input
        - Frozen input
        - CPU overload
        - No audio device
        - Unclear tone (identifies sources of tracking errors)
        - Out of range (too high)
        - Sudden sounds while using soft mode
        - Sustained sounds while using hard mode

+ New Note Mode: Lock
    This mode prevents notes from changing, regardless of slides in the actual pitch.
        This is useful with hard triggering, pending "hold mode" in 0.8.2.

Changes:

imitone consumes about 33% less CPU.
Various subtle improvements have been made to pitch tracking.  In particular:
    Pitch tracking is somewhat less "jittery" when the tone is unclear.
    Various new measures were taken against "octave errors".
Tone Stabilization was rewritten again, making it more effective and responsive.
    ...A still more effective stabilizer is planned.
Volume levels and quiet sounds are tracked somewhat more accurately.
imitone for Mac now uses a "pro audio" stream configuration.
    (This makes imitone somewhat less likely to choose a conflicting sample-rate.)
Pitch bend is no longer reset to zero when notes end.
Long-range pitch bend now uses a range of 24 semitones (two octaves in each direction).
imitone transmits a default expression (CC11) value when this articulation is disabled.
    (This prevents a confusing problem where instruments can be silenced.)

Fixes:

Fixed a problem which could prevent imitone from responding to hotkeys.
Fixed an error that could cause pitch bend to display improperly.

Known issues:

Note mode is not saved between runs.
Trigger mode is not saved between runs.
ASIO occasionally causes a crash.
Sudden, extreme changes in pitch can cause the stabilizer to fluctuate wildly.

Re: imitone Beta 0.8.1

Haha, Lock mode is really just a stand-in for hold mode, which I expect to be more useful in general.  But I'm glad you like it!

Re: imitone Beta 0.8.1

They're overdue -- I'm going to think very hard about adding presets in 0.8.2.

Re: imitone Beta 0.8.1

hello Evan, I was barely connected to the internet past month, i've received an email from imitone with new update and gave it a quick try... was so nice
then I tested it deeper and...
WAW man this is brilliant, it is again a good step in the right direction.
very glad to use imitone on my latest projects.

Feature request for the pitchbend ratio with pitchbend mode
already asked for it and I say it one more time, an option to set ratio between 2 - 12 semitones would be tremendously welcome :D

Even if I truly have to admit the new pitchbend mode is juicy with only 2 semitones bending.

Cheers to you the creator, this voice to midi app is getting to its real purpose!

BRAVO

Re: imitone Beta 0.8.1

Yragael --

You can set a longer pitch bend range (+/- 24) by holding CONTROL when you switch over to it.  There's actually a line about that in the changelog above!

Re: imitone Beta 0.8.1

oh sorry the kid was in a rush :D

awesome

really cool using it

+/-12 would be nice even if i'm impressed how it is responding on the 24 semitones mode, good work again

Re: imitone Beta 0.8.1

In the long run I'll add a wrench menu that offers at least all the common options.
