Audio to Midi


I am trying to figure out, If there is a way to play Synth plugins (originally made for Guitar/MIDI) with the Trumpet.

I’ve read and tried out the Audio to CV Pitch plugin but I would prefer not to get into Modular synths as I don’t have the time to create Boards that sounds good right now and just stick to the Midi Synth plugins.

In order to use those however, I would need some sort of Audio to Midi conversion… or CV to Midi.

Is there any way to make this work?


Oh, I didn’t see you’ve made a thread for this subject, as it is more appropriate to have the answer here instead of the long welcome one, I past my 1st response here :

Hello @Vale ,

thank you for this feature request. I am sure @jon João will put the Audio to MIDI request on the ever growing feature requests list.

At the moment there is just the Audio to CV plugin available so there are some tricks to extract pitch and “signal present” gate signal from the incoming audio signal here. You want your synth follow your pitch, but you want to generate note on and note off events as well.

Greetings and God bless, Marius


You could run the cv/gate through Cardinal and generate midi notes this way (as a quick-n-dirty workaround).


It’s there and I believe that we have no doubt at this point of the need :slight_smile:
I can’t seem to remember who and where, but there was a user sharing that he was working on something like that and sharing his process. Does anyone recall?

Exactly!! Thanks @khz
jimsondrift a little ping here. How the process is going? Is there anything that we (community or MOD team) can help with?


Mod Duo user. Not sure if my question is the same as this thread and the replies are a few months old so I don’t know if any progress has been made. Is there a way that the audio to CV pitch can be used to drive a synth instrument plugin? My wish is to play harmonica microphone into audio socket using a synth instrument plugin such as fluidgm synths.
