Jam Origin - MIDI Violin
« on: May 07, 2014, 11:30:44 AM »
Just read a review of the guitar version of this software based MIDI converter.

Looks promising, and guess what? a violin version is planned.   :)

I like the concept of audio recognition and the latency specs are impressive on guitar so should be no problem for standard pitch violins. So you just plug in your electro acoustic violin or electric VSO and it will convert to MIDI ... with a bit of setting up!. Tracking is improved simply by being able to specify the scale notes so false triggering is improved by ignoring any note not specified in the scale set up.

Best of all ...................... $100 / £65.

Bit of a no brainer even for a old troglodyte like me, even if only used for scoring.

Watch this space.

Been using it for about a year :) I have already offered the services of the forum, but at the moment they are concentrating on the bass version.

I'm going through a heavy learning curve with Cubase and Adobe premier, so I can't see me having the time Titch.  I'm not sure what the benefits to me would be either.  I'm open minded however, to see other people's evaluation and suggestions for its possible uses.

So you're changing Titch.  What am I missing out on, is Ableton Live far better?

Horses for courses - Cubase does everything and is very deep, which can make it slow to learn and use. I have a new "live perfomance" project which Live suits very well with flexible arrangements and easy MIDI control; still evaluating but for "live" work Live looks not just to be named for the job but suitable too.

If you want an APC40 Titch, let me know ;) I bought Ableton last year, and it's not for me unfortunately.

As for MIDI Violin. No idea, they simply said they were concentrating on the Bass version for now.

Cheers Mark - good to know, may be interested later when I know how I'm going to run it. Going to be another 6 months + though.

I contacted them as well, when I first came across the guitar version last year. Had a very nice reply, and heard nothing from them since. For guitar, the program is excellent and works very well when playing chords and individual notes. It is certainly on a par with my Sonus midi converter.

My guess, for violin they are experiencing the same problem that most audio to midi conversion programs struggle with. The violin lacks attack and the dynamics of a guitar.

Certainly, my Sonus box struggles with violin notes played quickly. However, copes with the long legato notes well.
I have a midi guitar, that I picked up cheaply from the nintendo rockschool offloading on amazon recently. It works perfectly and is the best alternative midi input device I know of, apart from a standard keyboard.

I hope the Jam Origin Software developers do manage to solve this problem, as it is so liberating to be able to play a variety of hardware instruments, via midi, without the use of a keyboard.

Well, MIDI Guitar 2 is out, MIDI Bass is out, and apparently they're still working on MIDI Violin. I've never heard back from with regards to beta testing or indeed helping out with the development... so let's see.

The Akai, that's been sitting in a cupboard pretty much ever since I bought it. I really need to stop hording things and sell that with Ableton Live 9 Studio....

Ah thanks, I'll keep my ear to the ground.
I already have Ableton, and just picked up an apc40 mkII. Ableton's really great software, what issues are you having with it?

Using Cubase for the past 29 years. The workflow is a lot better for me. I don't need clips, but I do need good management of 200+ MIDI channels for the various styles of music I have to work with (I'm a game composer by trade).

That's really interesting. Yeah, I mostly use ableton as a glorified loop pedal/synth for live performance. Can I ask how you became a game composer? I'm looking at getting into it myself and am trying to find the best place to start so I can build a portfolio for school. Did you study or just build your business from the ground up? Steam forums? Local ads?

Well..... I started in 1992 so things were a bit different then. Sending floppy disks with my tracker music to all the games companies in the UK - which actually worked.

These days there is a lot more competition, so best thing is to get involved with the indie scene to build up your experience which will then give you a showreel demonstrating your music quality and how itís been hooked up in game.

Iíve just gone freelance now hoping that my reputation and experience will get me some work.
