I'm looking for a tool to control VST instruments through my epiano midi. My goal is to play a song, and having the DAW (or whatever) detect the tempo by analysing what I'm currently playing.
Question: is that possible at all?
I would want to create some kind of "song template" that syncs automatically with my play, and could automatically switch sounds in time. I could achieve this by using the DAW automation settings to control VST instruments.
Like: starting with a string sound in the intro and verse, and switching (or adding) additional piano sounds automatically in the chorus.
I could program the template beforehand (as number of bars are known for each verse/chorus). But I don't know how I could sync this to my live playback, so the DAW knows the exact time to switch?
Or if that's not possible to live-detect the timing just by what I play with my midi keyboard: is there any program that can switch sounds by midi signal? Like a C5 key could active the verse sounds, an D5 the chorus sounds?
