I am just work on a "band in the box" alternative, but it's focus more
as a Live Band. It meen Audio_in and Midi_out. I use a pitch tracker,
mixed with a Beat detector. You can configure both to get the right
point for atack the Beat and grep the Note. Then you have 3 Channel's
witch you can configure for channel, program, oktave and the sensity,
that meen's how fast the Note for the channel will read and send after
the beat detector have emit a signal. I use it for drum's in fast mode,
sitar in middle mode and kalimba in slow mode, that's my band. :D You
see it's a completely different style, so I dont know if it help's you ?
If you wont to try it, you can get it here:
