The BEAT to MIDI Beat Detection and Drum Replacement tool which producers and musicians can use to extract MIDI data from Drum loops is now available.

BEAT to MIDI is designed to allow for the correction of poorly captured or performed drum recordings after the recording session has taken place. BEAT to MIDI uses algorithms to identify each drum hit (or transient) in the time domain. Once this point is detected, MIDI data can be used to trigger replacement drum samples to alleviate poor quality recordings and/or timing errors.


BEAT to MIDI offers the following features:

• Detection of drum strikes and output of detections to a (defined) single MIDI note

• Supervised Pattern Matching system to identify drum instruments

• Detection of drum strikes and drum instruments with output of detections to appropriate (General MIDI defined) MIDI notes

• Automatic ratio settings to allow easy settings of thresholds


What is Beat Detection?

Beat Detection is the term used to describe the use of a computer program to identify when individual drum instruments are played during a performance.
