  • Backline Engineering Announces Note Synth Pitch to MIDI App for the iPhone, iPod and iPad

    By Guest |

    BackLine Engineering LLC, www.backline-eng.com today announced a new app that allows you to turn your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad into a guitar synthesizer using the MIDI Mobilizer from Line 6. You can also have a MIDI keyboard/synthesizer track your voice or other instrument. Simply plug your guitar into your Apple device and plug the output of MIDI Mobilizer into a MIDI keyboard or MIDI sound module. Note Synth will recognize the notes you play and convert them into MIDI note messages that contain the proper note value. The MIDI keyboard or sound module will then play the note using the instrument type (program number) you have selected from within the app.


    The audio input signal can come from the built-in microphone, the headset microphone or through an audio input cable. As long as the input is a single note (no chords) Note Synth will recognize it and output the correct MIDI note message. The audio can be from any instrument or voice that produces clean stable tones. Here are some of the features available:


    • Can output one or two MIDI notes at the same time to form chords
    • Each note can have a different MIDI channel to drive separate sound modules or keyboards
    • Each note can be offset from the note you are playing by up to plus or minus two octaves
    • Control the sound module or keyboard instrument selection from within the app using a program number
    • Keep the current note sustaining while you play the next note. This keeps the last two notes playing at once
    • Keep the last and current note sustaining while you play the next note. This keeps the last three notes playing at once.
    • Combine the features above to keep the last three 2-note chords playing at once
    • Save your favorite configurations in a settings library as presets
    • Receive MIDI program change messages to select setting files (presets)
    • Audio-thru function allows you to pass the audio signal to the headset output



    Use the built-in microphone, the headset microphone or one of several special instrument cables that are available.
