AutoKey | Auto key detection | Backstage Pass | BandLab Membership

Vocalists, say hello to AutoKey! This new tool is seamlessly integrated into AutoPitch, and helps you automatically detect and set the key of your vocals. Forget about manual adjustments – this feature saves you time and frustration, speeds up recording sessions, and amps up workflow efficiency in Studio.

Locate AutoKey in the AutoPitch tonic and scale settings menu when you fine-tune your recorded vocals. You can also find it in the drop-down menu that pops up when you select a track containing your vocals.

6. Turn your voice into 370+ virtual instruments

Voice-to-MIDI | BandLab | Backstage Pass | Membership

Not a music theory whiz? No sweat. Upload a recording of your voice (under 5 minutes), and use Voice-to-MIDI to transform your vocals into over 370+ virtual instruments from BandLab’s library.

Just tap on your recording and select the Voice-to-MIDI tool from the dropdown menu. Your recording will be converted into a separate MIDI track, with the Studio Grand piano preset as the default. Tap on it to switch it up with any other virtual instrument, like phonk bell, saxophone, steel drum, electric bass, and more.

With each vocal recording, you can generate different instrumental MIDI tracks. Get creative and layer them in your mix to create a diverse song or beat – no music expertise needed!

Tip: For precise conversion of vocals into MIDI tracks, prep your vocal recordings with Voice Cleaner before using Voice-to-MIDI.

7. Get clean, high-quality vocal recordings

This AI-powered Voice Cleaner makes fixing up your vocal recordings a breeze. It isolates your vocals from background music or noise, leaving you with clean, enhanced audio for your creations.

8. Unlock 32 tracks in Studio

Backstage Pass | BandLab Membership | 32-tracks in Studio

For a smoother experience, use the Freeze Track feature (available on both web and mobile) on larger projects to ease the processing strain. Just click on the triple dot icon to access track actions, then select Freeze Track.

9. Customize your home screen

You’ll be able to customize your home screen on the app. Choose your preferred starting tab upon app launch – whether it’s the Create Tab, Library tab, or Notifications tab. The flexibility is yours!

10. Keep a low profile
