Voice to MIDI thru voc proc and guitar synth?
I want to use my voice as a MIDI controller (i've always been one to
push the envelope, so to speak). I know, I could use a vocoder, but
that limits to the presets available, usually. I want to be able to
control any MIDI instrument that is out there with my voice, and not
rely solely on the vocoder patches that are available.
Hey, i know people are working on this (engineers and so forth), and
it may be 10 years out, but I had a thought I wanted to run by some of
you "makers" and other gear techs.
Really, something like the GR-20 just needs a signal to hit the pickup
that sounds like a guitar to it, right? So, would it be possible to
use a vocal processor to make a voice sound enough like a guitar to
fool the GR-20 to thinking that its hearing a guitar, and thereby
convert the signal to MIDI controller data? What if you mounted a
GR-20 to something and amplified the guitarized voice against it to
activate the pickup?
It really doesn't matter what the processed voice sounds like, as long
ast the GR-20 would think its a guitar.
Is this too crazy to work?
