IntelliScore Ensemble Converts Polyphonic Audio To MIDI

Innovative Music Systems has announced the release of version 7.1 of intelliScore Ensemble.

IntelliScore Ensemble listens to prerecorded or live music (in WAV, MP3, WMA, or CD format) and creates a multiple-track MIDI (.mid) file containing the notes played, broken down by instrument. The MIDI file, in turn, is suitable for notation, cleanup/editing, and playback.

Version 7.1 adds improved support for Windows Vista and an enhanced help system.“Many have considered multi-instrument conversion to be the ‘holy grail’ of music recognition,” said Joe Kohler, president of Innovative Music Systems. “Now, that quest is finally a reality with intelliScore Ensemble.”

In addition to supporting multiple instruments, the latest intelliScore provides other new helpful features. For example, if the audio recording is a drum track, intelliScore can create a MIDI file to indicate where the beats are. It also now supports WMA (Windows Media Audio) files and the converting of several audio files at the same time.
