OPCODE SYSTEMS has begun shipping a major upgrade to its innovative Macintosh MIDI sequencing software, STUDIO VISION PRO. This upgrade adds several new breakthrough features to what is already an award-winning program, including full compatibility with Pro Tools and TDM. Of most interest will probably be the Audio-to-MIDI function which can turn a digital audio recording of a single musical voice into MIDI pitch data, including accurate pitch bend and modulation. Can't play a flute? Just sing the notes you want to hear, then send the MIDI out to a sampler with a great flute sample and there you are! The MIDI-to-Audio function works in reverse and allows you to edit MIDI pitches and durations, then convert the data back into the audio file they were derived from. It's truly awesome.
