What is Digital Ear®?
Digital Ear can analyze a live or recorded solo performance (e.g. a singing voice, a saxophone solo, or any other musical instrument) and convert it into a standard MIDI file! This file can be played by any synthesizer with a different voice of your choice, or you can import it into your favorite sequencer or notation software (e.g. Cubase VST, Cakewalk, Sonar etc. ) for mixing with other tracks, automatic transcription, or further processing. Digital Ear reads standard PCM audio (.wav) files.

Beyond simple «Pitch-to-MIDI» Conversion...
After two years of success, anyone now knows that only Digital Ear can capture the nuance and expressive power of the human player.

Unlike conventional so-called «Pitch-to-MIDI» converters, Digital Ear will send high-resolution pitch events closely matching those of your original sound. Any vibrato, tremolo, pitch-bend, or portamento effects of your recorded sound will be faithfully converted and reproduced into any voice of your synthesizer.

Now in Real-time!
The Real-time edition of Digital Ear can directly convert your audio directly from the microphone into MIDI! The possibilities are endless: Make your electric guitar sound like it never did before, let your voice to control a pan flute, or just view how good your intonation is with the on-screen pitch display.

The Voice Realism is here.
A unique feature of Digital Ear not found elsewhere, is the capturing of detailed volume envelope and timbre dynamics events. These features can really boost your synthesizer's voice realism and enhance your musical expression. Your MIDI files will never sound the same again.
