imitone Beta 0.9.0

imitone Beta 0.9.0

December 1, 2016

This update represents an effort to explore how much imitone can be improved outside of the core technology.
Note interpretation has been enhanced with smarter algorithms and several new features, making imitone much more effective.
We also re-designed the interface and integrated a new and powerful error handling system.

Windows:  Download
Mac OS X:  Download  (OS X 10.7 and up)


Change Log:

New Features:

+ Presets
    Allows the user to select useful combinations of settings.
    Each preset is optimized for a certain category of instruments.
    They may be selected with the number keys.

+ Hold Mode (prototype)
    The new default slide mode for imitone.
    Does not change notes unless player's voice has settled.
   
+ Pitch Guide (prototype)
    An automatic pitch correction function.
    Detects when the player is out of tune, and automatically compensates.

+ Quick-Bend
    Temporarily engage pitch slides by holding the spacebar.
    Lock and hold modes will switch to legato mode.
    Sweep, legato and portamento modes will switch to bend mode.
    Bend mode will switch to hold mode.
   
+ More Scales
    Added six new scale types including minor, blues and bebop.
   
Changes:

imitone's entire UI was re-designed.
    - The piano roll was re-designed.
        - Keys are now at the top.
        - Note and tone lines are painted in a nicer style.
        - Note lines portray legato and bending more clearly.
        - Notes look different in attack and sustain modes.
        - Inactive note tracks are now dimmed.
    - The tuner was redesigned.
        - The concept of a "stabilizer" was eliminated.
        - The dark needle is always present and indicates voice pitch.

    - Some issues with Attack Mode were corrected.
    - Various other subtle adjustments.
imitone was optimized for multi-core processing and low-power CPUs.
    - imitone is significantly more reliable when CPU usage is high.
    - It is possible to run more simultaneous voices than before.
The audio system was upgraded.
    - ASIO configuration changes now take effect automatically.
    - imitone will attempt to reset itself when the stream is frozen.
    - It is possible to manually reset audio with F5.  (Hotkey may change.)

    ... Contact us for a solution if hardware graphics are unavailable to you.
Some device-dependent start-up crashes were fixed.  (See: audio system was upgraded)
Fixed a start-up error affecting some Windows computers with AMD graphics cards.
Fixed some weirdness when opening the README or error files on Windows.

Re: imitone Beta 0.9.0

im new with imitone but i could install easy, is a great idea but im little dissapointed, the delay and a lot of missing notes are HUGE !! a lot of problems, i try on every mode but its hard to get the right note cause imitone miss a lot of them... so i hope u can work on latency and the missing notes.. (i prove on all audio input) from 1 to 10 my review i think for now imitone gets a 5, great idea but with a lots of problems yet..... hope u can fix it.

Re: imitone Beta 0.9.0

Hey, Kazza ---

Please send me a feedback message.  That will allow me to check out your settings and see if anything is wrong with imitone.

Try using Kernel mode for better latency, and experimenting with different presets and note modes.  I recommend trying at least the "keys", "synth" and "busy" presets, depending on what you are doing.

If you have AZERTY keyboard, adjust zoom on the tracks by pressing shift+W

Re: imitone Beta 0.9.0

I love the F5 hotkey. I can change the midi channel without having to restart imitone.
