too many notes recorded from one long note.

I wanted to use imitone to write midi parts on the fly with a mic-- its a great idea! my problem with imitone has been that it records lots of choppy notes even when i am trying to get one long note--- which requires way too much editing in my midi editor to get the sound i want. Melodyne and Ableton Audio to midi are way more accurate for this-- so Ive just been using those-- however, i paid for the full version of imitone and this is the first program that I've invested in during the beta process, and i figure my thoughts might be helpful.... not trying to troll, no agenda here... I used imitone once, and my computer almost melted-- i had to shut everything down lol. So thank you for reducing the CPU!  I REALLY wanna feel cool and use this all the time--and show it to people. Thanks!

Re: too many notes recorded from one long note.

Hey, Jonny --

If imitone places a heavy CPU load on the system, its audio input may get corrupted -- causing a mess like the one you've seen here.  If you see a blinking red thermometer this is almost certainly the case.  Setting imitone to a smaller pitch-range reduces its CPU usage, and future versions of the program will be less resource-intensive than the current beta.

Aside from that, audio corruption can happen when imitone and another low-latency audio program are trying to share a microphone.  This can be easily diagnosed by running imitone without any other music apps open.

I plan on further developing the diagnosis and warning systems for problems like this in the future.
