Cool Edit Pro includes a plugin called BrainWave Synchronizer that will allow you to do the same things. I've been using it for a couple of months and my IQ has already increased 20 points, just call me Lawn Mower Man. Seriously, I think it's an amazing technology.

I guess it must be tried by A LOT of persons to be actually considered "the next big thing". Sounds good, but I remember seeing an add on KEYBOARD Mag about a "Brain Wave MIDI Controller" back in the early 90's... ...guess what happened? it was just vaporware. It seems quite interesting, do not misundertand me.

Oh Hell... I was back to read my KEYBOARD MAG's archive... it was in 1990 when they mentioned about an article from 1985 (!!!). It seems it was a joke... sort of... Anyway, the idea is not actually new.

Nope...[i]this[/i] is the future of music. [b]April 1, 2002 -- Sweetwater's Research & Development department announces the release of its first plug-in: Ta!ent Ta!ent is a TDM/RTAS/VST/DirectX/MAS/MOUSE plug-in that puts professional musical accomplishment within the reach of everyone. It's the ideal solution for the musician whose skill level at his or her chosen profession falls far below the standard for even rudimentary competence. Dave Stewart, Sales Manager at Sweetwater and consultant for Sweetwater's R&D department, explains the development of Ta!ent "We were hearing from a lot of people in the entertainment industry," Stewart says. "They were concerned by the number of talentless but extremely attractive people they were seeing. They approached us with the idea of turning all these Baywatch extras and former stars of cancelled television series into mega-platinum music acts." The secret behind the Ta!ent plug-in? Sweetwater's proprietary Creativity Resource Object Compiling/Brilliant Synthesis (CROC/BS)technology. "We sat down with all the major musicians and songwriters of the last 50 years and modeled their talents," says Stewart. The results are incredible. The plug-in is extremely easy to use, and can turn virtually anyone into the musician of their choice. "It's very simple," says Terry Lee, Sweetwater's Chief Scientist. "Just crank up the BS control, and the CROC circuit goes into action." Ta!ent comes with an enormous number of presets, everything from Large Opera Singer (male) to Pneumatic Pop Star (female). For example, dial in Grizzled Blues Man and a nineteen-year-old white male surfer from Australia who has never picked up a guitar in his life can sound just like a 70-year-old blues man from Chicago who has spent decades dedicated to his music. "Once upon a time, it required musicians and songwriters years of dedication and practice to achieve the sound they want," says Robin Jenny, Sweetwater's studio manager. "Now, people can have that authenticity in a snap, and the performers are far more attractive. Have you seen some of our most treasured artists recently? Very unattractive people..." Troy Hartman, Sales Manager at Sweetwater, sees the appeal for Ta!ent going far beyond the entertainment industry. "There's a virtually unlimited market out there for Ta!ent" Hartman says. "Many of our customers are engineers and producers who tell us they constantly have to work with no-talent musicians who don't want to spend the necessary time it takes to master an instrument. With the Ta!ent plug-in, our customers won't have to waste precious energy and studio time explaining concepts like 'tuning' and 'harmony' to people who don't really care anyway. And the musicians gain all the benefits that come with being an artist, without wasting one second of posing time." For Sweetwater President Chuck Surack, the Ta!ent plug-in is the realization of a long-held dream. "At Sweetwater, we love music technology," Surack says. "But I always thought it was too bad that music technology can do everything for the musician and audio pro except provide the talent. Now, thanks to our groundbreaking CROC/BS technology, we've changed that. Ta!ent, will introduce thousands of musicians to the full benefits of today's high-end music technology equipment." Sweetwater will begin taking orders for Ta!ent immediately. The product should be ready to ship by NAMM 2003.[/b] Man,what a sweet product! :D :D :D later, Mike

It looks great (the biofeedback thing is nothing special, but the brain-mouse is dope). But supposedly they've been around since '87, and have no shipping product? Just a nice web site and some quotes from Kurzweil. I'll definitely wanna see this in action if they ever do anything for the consumer market, say w/a USB inteface and OS X drivers @ $100, and I'm there.
