hi @JamO, when (in time) would you think you’d be able to add this mode? I will have a hexaphonic Tune-O-Matic bridge (Schaller made them) in one or two weeks. I could quite easily replace a LP’s bridge with that one I think and route the individual signals to my MOTU 8-pre and that one to Logic.
The ubertar should also be there in about that time, but might take more time to install.
Thinking about the conversion , I see three options, but I do not know how your software discerns between notes and things like that.
You process each track separately and create a MIDI melody for that. You would have 6 soft (or hard ) synths play these notes and you can pan them nicely etc. That’s cool and I would like it.
You process them together, but using the separate audio to better discern between the notes. Not sure yet how much ‘leaking’ there is across the individual note-pickups. I guess there always is some. If you process them together, it would be more easy to delete these double notes: if (as the software) you happen see the same note on the adjecent string, you can ignore that one and focus on the string’s own note. The output would be one polyphonic MIDI file. Easier if you do not want to have it routed to individual synths for each string.
Combination of both: simultaneous processing, but still outputting separate MIDI tracks
A thought / question (my MIDI specification knowledge has sunken down in my brain): does MIDI allow panning or other individual info per note (except velocity and aftertouch)? Or only on the whole channel? How do you (if you can) now translate for example multiple pitch bends at a time (bending 2 strings by hand, while leaving one other… do people do that?, or playing two strings but bending only one would be enough: pitch bend in MIDI does all notes…
