Jonathan Schmid Burgk releases VisualVox polyphonic v0.9

Jonathan Schmid Burgk VisualVox polyphonic

Jonathan Schmid Burgk has released version 0.9 of VisualVox polyphonic, a polyphonic tone manipulation software.

The dream of musicians to isolate single notes out of chords and so to manipulate most forms of recorded audio has come true on the 20th of January 2009.

VisualVox polyphonic applications

  • Change chords or single wrong notes in polyphonic recordings
    • To fit pieces into your composition that otherwise would not have been accessible due to their key.
    • To creatively play around with recorded audio like with a midi instrument – it will play your musical ideas by a click but it still sounds like the real instrument.
  • Isolate the natural harmonics of instruments, manipulate them, take your instruments under the magnification glasses to understand their sound.
  • Create real sounding harmonizations, i.e. make chords out of monophonic parts of audio.
  • Correct intonation problems of any instrument or voice while keeping the formants as they are.
    Create artificial vibrato, stretch the formants, rearrange melodies, draw frequency curves with your mouse to access monophonic and polyphonic audio in a way it has never been possible before.

Version 0.9 of VisualVox polyphonic costs 25 Euros, as the software still has some limitations:

  • It creates very big temporary files.
  • It sometimes misses a note or recognizes a harmonic as an independent note, which can be avoided by optimizing 3 accessible algorithm prameters.
  • It plays back synchronously to the VST host software but the audio start time can not be moved to position x, so one should in most cases export the manipulated audio as a wav file.
  • Only availible as a MAC VST plugin so far.
  • Still contains some bugs.

The final version 1.0 will cost 99 EUR with the upgrade from v0.9 being 50 EUR (Ex. VAT if applicable).

What a dick, charging for his beta release crappola. We shouldn’t be paying him, he should be paying us for the QA work.

no, he’s NOT doing the right thing. it’s never a good idea to release bug-infested beta code, no matter what. it just makes you look incompetent, cheap, and with no respect for your customers. yeah, he’s antsy, he just wanted to beat the release of melodyne DNA, but releasing beta code is hardly worthy of the claim. look what celemony is doing: they’re taking the extra time to get it right. it’s probably going to be about a year since they first announced DNA to its actual release, no half-assed releases for them just so they can be the “first.”… Read more »

It could also be a form of beta testing?

I tried the freeware visual vox before and couldn’t get into it. The UI, leaves something to be desired because it’s not very intuitive to use.

We should support these developers that often release freeware before they offer payware. There’s no need to be offensive towards them when you have a choice to use their product or not!

“Bug-infested beta code? I think you’re being a bit harsh here.”

That is 100% accurate, because it is a self-admitted beta release and also contains self-admitted bugs. How is that harsh? Ameliorating the issue just makes you look like a suckup and a tool.

“Jonathan shows respect to his customers by explaining exactly what you’re buying here.”

LOL. How is telling someone that you’re selling them junk a “respect” to them? It’s the ultimate in disrespect. If you’re going to glad-bag that hypocrisy, then why don’t we just bring back apartheid too? “Hey, you get water, just not out of that fountain.”

>There’s no need to be offensive towards them when you have a choice to use their product or not! Yes! Let’s not disrupt anyone’s peace of mind, ever. Let’s just go along with their bullshit, no matter how offensive, because, you know, it might hurt their itty bitty fweeeelings. And we can’t have that, now can we! So I’m just going to put my fingers in my ears and pretend I didn’t hear what you said. la la laaaa lala la. How are the developers feelings more important than the customers? The customer can be slighted in every way imaginable… Read more »

@B.O.M… For starters, I give feedback to a number of these independent developers as well as commercial ones. I often get quick responses and solutions because: (1) I contact them directly. (2) Because I don’t use needless anger towards them especially when it’s freeware. A few developers have actually sent me exclusive unreleased plugins as well as incorporated some of my ideas into their plugs. I have found a lot of these guys to be pretty cool and down to earth when you give them common courtesy. I had an issue with the driver installation of a Presonus audio device… Read more »

Option A – Harsh Criticsm: Well dear “Beatoffman,” do please provide us with some contact information for your parents, that we might inundate them, in the harshest possible terms, with the negative criticism they sorely deserve for providing you with, literally, no sense of diplomacy or decency toward other people. One can only applaud with laughable levels of sarcasm the magnificent failure of your upbringing. I do hope you are an only child, as it would be beyond our conception of immorality for these people, who are apparently so incapable of producing progeny with the ability to conduct themselves in… Read more »

not sure what you guys are going on about but I can report that this plug seems to not work at all in Live 7 on OS X. So I would avoid if that is your config.

Jason and beatoffman are the same troll posting under both nyms, having an argument with himself because he’s starved for attention.

@ PLEASE_STOP Huh. I wish you’d been around two weeks ago or so, to let me know about this before I spent all that time writing the comment… Well, good job there, I guess. Case solved. You’ve proven yourself to be quite a capable sleuth. And I would have gotten away with it too, if it hadn’t been for those kids and that pesky dog. And just never you mind, just never you mind! that our style, diction, sentence structure, rhythm and usage of punctuation show notable differences–differences which would be difficult (though I will concede not impossible) to fake… Read more »

Bottom line is, this software is weak at best. I had an uncompressed cello/viola duo I was trying to separate – just sounds like he EQs (read: tries to) one of the voices out.

Its not usable as a once voice pitch manipulator let alone a polyphonic melodyne DNA competitor.

Take it from someone who wasted money on this product. A pretty shabby release, even for a beta. (I’ve also never ever heard of people having to pay to test a beta… thats bullcrap)
