Hit Every Note with MicDroid

The question of whether we can or cannot sing is usually not the right one to ask. Everyone can sing, but the problem lies in hitting the right notes with the right pitch and intonation at the right time. Since that is complex to do without many, many years of training, technology is out there to help us achieve this goal. In this case, XDA member intervigil wrote an application based on an app called Autotalent, which was a project from a DSP (Digital Signal Processing) student at MIT. In essence, the program can take in whatever you are singing and, based on predetermined parameters, it will make sure that the notes that you sing are with the desired pitch and intonation.

The app is in very early stages of development, and the dev still has a lot of work to do, including the GUI. However, intervigil wants to invite all interested devs to lend a hand and test on other devices, as the objective is to make this app universal.

I wrote a small app that basically produces the autotune effect. It’s based on the AutoTalent LADSPA plugin, by Tom Baran, available here:http://web.mit.edu/tbaran/www/autotalent.html
The app is available under the name ‘MicDroid’ in the market, and the source is available at my github,
http://github.com/intervigilium/MicDroid
There’s still a lot of work to be done, including pretty much the entire GUI.
Currently my priorities are like the following:

  • device compatibility, I have reports of failure on G1, MyTouch3G, Galaxy S
  • graphics (being worked on)
  • loudness
  • ability to play some kind of backing track (technically might be quite difficult)
  • sharing recordings via email/SMS/whatever

You can find more information about the project in the application thread.
