PRO TOOLS 2020.11
AUDIO TO MIDI
Pro Tools 2020.11 has introduced a new feature in partnership with Celemony that allows you to turn your audio tracks into MIDI ?
Celemony Melodyne 5 is required for this feature to work, and will be provided for free (Melodyne 5 Essential) to Pro Tools users who are current on their license.
You can find this setting in:
SETUP > PREFERENCES > PROCESSING Tab
Look for Celemony ARA, and confirm your Audio to MIDI Plug-In is set.
There are several ways to use this new feature.
You could Right-Click an Audio track, and use Copy Audio as MIDI.
Or, you could simply drag an Audio clip into a MIDI or Instrument track.
Or, you could select a track or tracks, and go to TRACK > EXTRACT MIDI TO NEW TRACK.
This feature has so many different uses, from the obvious, to extremely creative.
You could convert Drum Audio tracks into MIDI, and re-do those tracks with your favorite drum virtual instrument.
You could take a piano audio track, extract the MIDI, and use a Violin instrument in KONTAKT to create a harmony, or of course, use another piano instrument.
You could take a vocal track, extract the MIDI, and have it trigger a synth, or piano, or strings, etc…
There’s no limit to what you can do, just be creative with it.
