Have any of you used MS Songsmith? Do you know anyone who has?
The reason I ask is that it's supposed to take a monophonic input, such as voice, or bass (as long as you don't play chords) and turn it into a song. It uses the Band in a Box engine so it's probably pretty good.
In order to do that it clearly has to convert the audio to notes and I'm guessing they'd be in midi format. That would make it possible to play a line and have Songsmith convert it to midi which BiaB could output as standard notation or tab.
I think that would be great if it works. It would really help with learning to sight read music.
So any thoughts? Do you know whether this is possible?
