zplane.development has updated its acclaimed music learning software deCoda.
With version 1.1 musicians can plug in their instrument and play along to the song they are learning. The new plugin support makes it possible to play along through any VST/AU plugin while learning.
To get users going quickly, deCoda 1.1 even comes with a special version of IK Multimedia’s Amplitube 4 LE with four extra models.
–deCoda was designed to help musicians learn to play new songs. Being able to plug in your instrument and play along with your signature sound makes it so much easier, says Tim Flohrer, CTO and co-owner at zplane.
Built from the ground up as a software tool to help music makers learn new songs, deCoda is a unique software tool. Users can import any audio file and deCoda will tell the key, tempo and chords and identify sections like intro, chorus and verse.
Smart tools for looping, isolating individual instruments, tracing and exporting melodies, and adjusting the tempo make it easy to follow along and effortlessly learn difficult passages.
Other new features include the ability to export the chord analysis as MIDI files or in ChordPro format for easy chord sheet creation.
The update is free for existing owners.
