Dubler Studio Converts Your Vocals Into MIDI
London based start-up Vochlea Music have introduced Dubler Studio Kit, a live vocal recognition MIDI controller that offers an intuitive method for translating musical ideas into ready-to-use ideas with its live pitch tracking, support for multiple MIDI channels,and more.
The Dubler Studio Kit unlocks musical expression, fuels creativity and is generally a lot of fun. It speeds up the traditional music creation workflow by allowing the user to control and manipulate MIDI outputs through audio inputs. Essentially meaning you can lay down melodies, drum loops, effects tracks… whatever you want, directly from voice to DAW.
- Compatible with any DAW (Ableton/Logic/Reason/FL Studio/ProTools/GarageBand etc).
- Learns your voice in less than 60 seconds.
- Allows you to use your voice as a live MIDI controller.
- Live pitch tracking for synth control.
- Accurately select between, and trigger, up to 8 samples using your voice.
- Sustain sounds, samples and notes vocally.
- Responsive to changes in velocity — takes all the information from exactly how you make a sound.
- Simultaneously talks to multiple MIDI channels— enabling sample triggering and synth control at the same time.
- Control up to 4 CC [MIDI mapping] values based on the way you make a sound. Then easily map to anything from synth selection, effects controls, synth blending, filters and more.
- Additional control of Pitch Bend and Envelope Following.
- Works with non-vocal sounds too — clap a beat or mic up an instrument.
- Can be used to control effects and filters on other MIDI devices and instruments.
- Low latency [10-12ms] enabling real-time, live control.
Dubler Studio Kit is a two-part hardware/software offering. It comes as:
- The Dubler software — a virtual MIDI instrument (desktop
application for Mac + PC).
- The Dubler microphone — a low latency custom USB mic (tuned
for the Dubler software).
