Zynaptiq Unleashes Pitchmap – Pitch Correction / Mapping Plug-In For Mac
Zynaptiq, a new company founded by Denis Goekdag and Stephan M Bernsee (the DSP-dev behind SonicWORX Isolate, the Hartmann neuron, DIRAC time-stretching, etc.), has released PITCHMAP, a real-time polyphonic pitch-correction and -mapping plug-in for Mac. It allows changing harmonies and melodies within mixed signals on-the-fly, including playing target notes directly via MIDI.
PITCHMAP is the world’s first and only plug-in that allows processing the pitch of individual sounds within mixed signals in real-time. It lets you change the melodies and harmonies of any recording by simply playing your own on a MIDI keyboard or creating a pitch map using our stream-lined GUI, and optionally corrects any tuning issues at the same time. As if that weren’t enough, PITCHMAP provides functions to remove or extract individual sounds from a mix, and can apply advanced synthesizer-like sound transformations to your audio. In short, it is an inspiring musical instrument, a precision corrective tool and the only processor that literally lets you shape music with your hands.
» Engineers can correct tuning accuracies in mixed recordings
» Composers can try different harmonies for their works in an immediate, hassle-free and inspiring manner
» Music producers that work with sampled material can now sculpt the music inside the samples as if they were clay in the hands of a potter
» DJs can adapt the key/scale of their songs to fit into a seamless set
» Sound designers get a bunch of unique new ways of creating the sounds that make the films and games of today so immersive
» Mash-Up artists and Re-Mixers now spend minutes instead of hours (or days) adapting the components they use to fit each other
» Rapid song/score prototyping using existing recordings that can be transformed to be something new on-the-fly
» Mix element suppression/isolation under MIDI control
» Creating unique synthesizer sounds based on a live input
» Create instant remixes and professional accompaniment tracks directly from your favorite songs or play list
