If this has been explained already, sorry I couldn’t spot it…
X42 Autotune will be a useful tool for my needs (having used Melodyne for many years I’m familiar with tools of this sort) but for some reason I cannot get the MIDI-based correction function to connect properly.
Must be something really simple I’m missing (PEBKAC for sure)!
So far I’ve tried…
Setting up a separate MIDI track, ensuring channels match, and recording desired notes, then running plugin with MIDI mode and proper channel as input. But Autotune doesn’t seem to pay any attention to this info.
Trying to get the Autotune plugin to create some source of MIDI snippet I can then edit. Not likely a solution, but gave it a try.
Clicking on the virtual 1 octave piano key screen of the plugin to generate the needed MIDI info to be recorded onto a separate (armed) MIDI track.
None of these approaches seem to work (yet).
Having read the documentation I could find, it’s still not clear how to get this simple task done.
I’m now eager to smack my forehead for not doing it right sooner… but first I need to get this configured properly
Wow, this was easy! … once I finally realized that the sidechain option required to employ MIDI pitch guidance for Autotune is found under the circuit pin-looking Icon with the mouse hover description: “Show Plugin Pin Management Dialog” - a perfectly good place for it!
Now that I know (what was likely obvious to others) I will have no problem leveraging this awesome feature! Many thanks for developing this phenomenal plugin - and for aiming me in the right direction.
FWIW, it might be helpful to expand the plugin’s “manual” to include a bit more info on how this feature is accessed. And rather than simply ask you or others to bother doing this, I’d gladly volunteer to provide some narrative for consideration to help “pay it forward.” Just let me know.
Many thanks again.
[p.s. - Experimenting with a sidechained MIDI track, it appears that pitch can be controlled through MIDI data while altering velocity has no effect on the targeted audio track with the plugin… is this a correct conclusion?]
Whether my finger is fast enough for musically pleasing vibrato is another matter. (A mod wheel controller dialed in for a rate & depth a’la LFO synth control would probably be more in my wheelhouse. But I’ll certainly practice with pitch bend where a lead vocal might benefit.)
Makes sense. Just offering to help. I understand not everyone is wise enough to use Ardour.
