i honestly donīt think there is something like that. pitch is any kind of sound source recorded where as midi is triggering pre-recorded samples. So you should sing in a word/note at a time, apply them to each key and then trigger them as you record. but I think it is much easier to record direct in. I have done it with logic on my mac, so I donīt see why you would have the need of converting them to midi?

There used to be a consumer-grade unit they sold in the Penney's catalog that would do that. I don't know how well it worked - pitch recognition is touchy work, as any Melodyne user could tell you.

Don't remember the mfr or model name, and it was a WHILE ago. 10-15 years, ISTM. I think 360 Systems used to make something like that too. Pitch-to-midi conversion is a key element of midi guitars, but I don't know how easily any of the guitar stuff out there could be adapted to voice.

Good luck,

Daf

ffff:

There are a few programs that (claim) to do this. Some work not too badly IF:

1. there is a single melody line (no harmonies)

2. the notes don't overlap - not a problem with a solo singer.

I don't use this feature but have been using Powertracks for about four years now. Several people claim success - I tried it once on a midi-generated sax line and it was not very good. I believe the software can be tried out before buying. In any event, it is very reasonable.
