IntelliScore 4.0 Adds
Real-Time Audio-to-MIDI Conversion
Innovative Music Systems, Inc. announced the release
of version 4.0 of its patented intelliScore music recognition software
that listens to prerecorded music (in wav or MP3 format) and creates a
MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) file containing the notes
played, likely chord names, and overall key. The MIDI file, in turn, can
be used for notation, editing, and playback, and allows musicians to spend
more time making music and less time figuring out the notes in unfamiliar
The new version adds several powerful features
including real-time recognition, expression capture, and MP3 support. A
trial version is available for download.
The new intelliScore allows musicians to use their
voice or analog instrument as a real-time MIDI controller or to record
directly into a MIDI editing program such as a sequencer. Musicians can
play an acoustic instrument or sing into a microphone attached to their
computer. As they play, the notes display instantly on the screen in their
MIDI editing program. Musicians can also use intelliScore as a live
performance tool to control a synthesizer. For example, they might sing
into a microphone and a flute sound can come out, playing the same notes
as they are being sung. IntelliScore detects and recreates many of the
expressive nuances contained in the original performance, such as pitch
bend, vibrato, tremolo, and portamento.
Joe Kohler, president of Innovative Music Systems,
stated: "Musicians, teachers, and composers around the world use
intelliScore's polyphonic music recognition capabilities to help
transcribe music from audio recordings. Now they can also use intelliScore
as a real-time MIDI controller. In the past, instrument-to-MIDI systems
required costly hardware adapters made for specific instruments.
IntelliScore provides a more affordable alternative and works with a
variety instruments." IntelliScore is unique among real-time software
solutions as it recognizes music containing more than one note at a time,
such as chords. Kohler added: "In spite of intelliScore's new
capabilities, we have lowered its price to make our technology within the
reach of even the most occasional musician."
