Arabic tunings

December 30, 2016 - 02:57 pm

I'm interested in making a pitch-correction preset for singing in arabic scales with Vsig. Is the pitches of the scale available to edit in Vsig?

The preset is not going to be used as a performance effect, but is going into in-ear monitors to help a vocalist hit the right notes.

It appears that our Diatonic-type shifters are based on the 12-note chromatic scale, so will be unsuited for your purposes.

One can concieve of a sigfile that used the PITCHDETECT module followed by a lot of math driving a PITCHSHIFT that would do the job, but this would be work for an expert. In particular, it would be difficult to make it respond fast enough.

I know some programmers that can look at it. Is there any documentation for the PITCHDETECT and PITCHSHIFT modules?

The Vsig Help files cover the modules.
