DUBLER STUDIO KIT: Your voice, the ultimate MIDI controller.
Dubler Studio Kit is a real-time vocal recognition MIDI controller.
Vochlea Music recently launched a Kickstarter for Dubler Studio Kit and have raised over double their goal of $53,000 and still have 29 days left in their campaign.
The Kit consists of both hardware and software.
- The Dubler software — a virtual MIDI instrument ( a desktop application for Mac + PC) Compatible with any production software [DAW]. It is not a plugin or VST.
- The Dubler microphone — a low latency custom USB mic, tuned for the Dubler software.
As musicians we all sing, hum, and record voice memos to track snippets of ideas – but that's often where that idea ends, never making it into the studio or onto the stage.
Our goal: To help you to release the stems of musical ideas trapped inside your head and get them directly into your production software— simply by vocalising them.
Now anyone can turn their voice directly into MIDI— quickly, easily, intuitively and LIVE.
Dubler Studio Kit Features
