Converts a melody to a control signal, containing pitch information from the melody. This is useful to control effect parameters based on pitch, such as filters, or complex modular synth patches.
A melody signal to convert to a control line, containing its pitch information. This can be a real-time melody signal, such as that from the MIDI Keyboard Node, or a connection from a static source, such as a Piano Roll Node.
Sets the output format:
- Frequency – outputs pitch in Hz (for example, the output will be 440 for an A4 note)
- MIDI Code – outputs pitch in its MIDI code (for example, the output will be 60 for a C4 note)
The current pitch value, in the specified output format, or 0 if no notes are playing at the moment.
This Node always outputs a single pitch value. If a polyphonic melody is connected, the output is the pitch from the most recently started note. That is, when a note starts playing, it overrides earlier ones.
- The Pitch Detect Node works in a similar fashion, except it takes an audio signal, analyzes it, and outputs its frequency information. However, the Pitch Emitter Node is faster and more accurate.
