Simultaneous Voices

Is the simultaneous voices feature available in the current version? In the features list on the order page, it says "see info" not "coming soon" like some of the other features. If it is available, how do I use it (I didn't see any reference to it in the manual)? And, if not, will it be coming soon? Thanks!

Re: Simultaneous Voices

imitone studio can listen to multiple channels of audio input, converting each into notes on its own MIDI channel.  The way this is done is a little obscure, but it is covered in the manual here:  https://imitone.com/manual/#midi_output

  1. Go to setup.

  2. Click on the MIDI channel button.

  3. Right-click on an unused MIDI channel.  Your settings will be duplicated to the new channel.

  4. Choose a different audio device and/or audio input channel to control this MIDI channel.

  5. Use keys 1-9 to quickly jump between active MIDI channels.

This would make a good tutorial video.

Re: Simultaneous Voices

Thanks for the instructions. A couple questions about this:

1) Is there a way to do this without a mouse with a right button? I'm using a Mac laptop and the usual right click method of ctrl+click didn't work. I had to plug in an external mouse with a right button.

2) I see how I can move between MIDI channels and how this changes which channel is displayed on the piano roll. Is it possible to display multiple channels on the piano roll simultaneously?

Re: Simultaneous Voices

The answer to both questions is currently no.  Multiple-voice setup was added to imitone rather hastily and should probably get a makeover sometime soon.

1.  Modern Mac laptops allow you to right-click by placing a second finger on the trackpad.  I'd like to make right clicking unnecessary in imitone, though.

2.  I think that's a sensible request.  I've thought about how this might be done in the past.  I imagine the piano roll might zoom out a bit and display other channels faded or color all notes by channel rather than chromaticity.
