I have been using Dubler a bit now and sadly it doesn’t really do what I hoped it would do.
So far it has been mostly useful for creating rhythm, but I think that with a few tweaks this could be really useful and my idea builds on what the product already does.
I want a combination of triggers and notes (controls). it should work like this
- Designate a trigger like “La” to begin note (just like the trigger does now). The note should be created with the pitch I sing at the time the trigger is triggered
- when I stop singing the note should end
- There should be an option (this is the important part) that restricts note creation outside a trigger, so even if I change the note/pitch nothing should happen.
- singing a tune with “la la la la la” should give me the correct rhythm and 5 notes with correct pauses in between.
In essence this means that there is only one note pr. trigger - right now, even with key restrictions - I get a lot of notes and they’re totally out of sync with the rhythm I was singing.
What I am proposing will allow the average user (all the not great singers) to accurately sing a tune in a rhythm and while it might not be the correct note that is always triggered (even with key restrictions) there will be much less for me to edit afterwards since the rhythm is correct and there is only one note pr. trigger.
This would be hugely useful and to be honest it was what I thought the Dubler would do when I backed the project.
