Yes, we mentioned the guitar word, and no doubt we’ll be inundated with more requests to write about that particular instrument (private joke, sorry), but the Behringer Perfect Pitch PP1, in bright red, offers more than that.
Accepting any audio signal you can throw at it, meaning you can route the output of your synths, pianos, keyboards, even DAW, or vocals, through it and get it to convert to MIDI, USB and CV.
It accurately tracks the pitch of any monophonic source plugged in to be used as a control voltage for another synth in the chain. Controls include Hi-Z and Low Cut switches plus a gain control of up to 50dB.
The company is fairly light on exactly how good it is at performing some of these functions, with not a huge amount of detail, but there is a demo video available to introduce us to the PP1.
Exact pricing and availability to be confirmed.
