Stereo Mode, Audio Tab (Ensemble Edition only)
User Level: Advanced
MIDI File Usage: Playback, Notate
If your audio is stereophonic, intelliScore offers several features to help you separate instruments. Remove and Isolate are not active in Real Time Mode nor when the Pitch is set to "Drums only".
Select Mix if you do not want any separation. This setting is the default and will blend the two stereo tracks together according to the setting of the Stereo Balance, regardless of their position in the stereo image. If you have the Polyphonic Edition of intelliScore, stereo tracks are always mixed - you do not have the other 3 options.
Select Split to activate the Split Stereo feature and process the two stereo tracks separately. You may want to use this setting if your audio contains different instruments on each stereo track. In conjunction with ensembles, the two tracks will be assigned to different MIDI channels by the converter, keeping them separate. Split is the only Stereo Mode that has any effect in real time mode. This setting is a duplicate of the Split Stereo setting in the Ensemble Editor; changing the value of one will change the other.
Select Remove if you want intelliScore to attempt to remove a instruments that were recorded near the stereo position you indicate using the Stereo Balance. For example, in a multiple instrument recording, vocals are often positioned at the center of the stereo image. By setting the Stereo Balance in the center and selecting Remove, intelliScore can reduce the amount of notes attributed to the vocal part in the MIDI file it generates. By de-emphasizing the notes that are mixed toward the center of the stereo image, this setting can be used to help create karaoke tracks.
Select Isolate if you want intelliScore to only process instruments that were recorded near the stereo position you indicate using the Stereo Balance. This is the opposite of the Remove mode. For example, if in a multiple instrument recording, vocals are positioned at the center of the stereo image, you can set the Stereo Balance in the center and selecting the Isolate mode. IntelliScore can reduce the amount of notes attributed non-voice instruments in the MIDI file it generates. By emphasizing notes that are mixed toward the center of the stereo image, which are typically vocals and lead instruments, this setting can be used to help create a lead sheet containing the melody and chord names.
