Now that we have everything and coders like nothing more than a challenge, wouldn’t it be cool if we could sing into synth V and produce la-las as we can now with midi? With the “final” frontier being the ability to recognize what is being sung and lay down lyrics instead of la-las. This would reduce the workflow tremendously and I don’t care how much cpu something like that would require.
I believe the suggestion here is direct lyric and pitch transcription into SVP format, which would be a neat feature but I’m not sure it would be worth diverting efforts from the core functionality of the product (unless Dreamtonics is doing well enough to hire on new staff, I suppose).
I am new to Synth V and was showing it off to a fellow music producer and he made the same suggestion as the original poster. The ability to be able to sing in a rough vocal and have the program recognize the pitch, timing and lyrics as a starting point. While I agree with Claire that this would require a huge amount of effort, I can’t help but think that this would be a huge workflow enhancement. Overall, I think improving the quality and expressiveness (adding grit, rasp and shred) of the voicebanks should be the developers primary focus, but I also think that ideas like this are great to put on their radar. With machine learning growing at its current pace, it is only a matter of time before someone develops this type of functionality.
