The other day, I was 'doodling' on the piano, trying to play the melody for a song I'd heard earlier. I was having trouble. See, even though I could hum it just about poifectly, I couldn't quite get it right on the piano. So I took a microphone, hooked it up to a pitch-finder, hooked it up to a MIDI output, and plugged that into a digital piano. I set the voice to Tenor Sax, and recorded a great rendition of said song.

HumMIDI can detect and pass along pitch-bends, vibrato, dynamics (loud/soft), and just about anything else you can do with yer voice, and output it as any instrument your keyboard has.

Coming soon: BoomMIDI, the all-in-one percussion voice-to-MIDI translator! Boing--Boom-Tschak is yours for the rendering!

       The Yamaha's PSR 740 and up series does just that. I have the 740. Plug the mic in, set for Sax, guitar, tom-tom drums or whatever instrument, hum or do-be-do (do-be-dos work better) in the mic and out comes the sound as the instrument you choose. If you cant play an instrument , this is an odd but effective way to record/play a riff or lead with your "voice-guitar" while a rhythm or song is playing.

       I was thinking of something like this, A device that takes the melody that you can hum & play it as any intrament. This will allow people who can't play music to still create it. I decided to do a search before I post it. I was going to call it the hum-singer.
