It'd be great if Vuo could simplify the process of converting FFT data to MIDI notes. Suggested node would have a monophonic (melodies) and polyphonic (chords) detection modes. There might be some challenges with requiring a high sample buffer size...

Some folks attempting it here in Processing:

Thanks! I'd very much like to be able to see the data for the dominant harmonic(s) (typically the loudest frequency). I'm not too picky on MIDI integration but that maybe makes the most sense given the other available nodes as we can do MIDI Note --> Frequency with an extra node.

Ultimately, it'd be great to be able to build an audio tuner with the node.

When we (Team Vuo) plan each release, we try to implement as many of the community's top-voted feature requests as we have time for.

If anyone would like to help this happen sooner, we're also accepting open source contributions and commissioned work.
