musical navigation

Musical Navigation

deCoda's knowledge of a song's beat, tempo and structure let you navigate in musical terms rather than in samples or seconds. Explore the song in parts, bars or beats just with a keyboard hit or touch screen swipe. Automatically have a section loop and expand these loops just as quickly. Concentrate on your instrument, not the navigation.

Chord & Structure Recognition

deCoda decodes your song's musical data such as beat, tempo, key, chords and song structure. Using AI deCoda makes educated guesses for each providing a good starting point for your edits. In some cases, you'll not need to make any edits!

pianoroll

Pianoroll with spectral view

The pianoroll shows the melodic content of your song and lets you pick the notes that you can use for transcription (no automatic audio to MIDI). Results can be played back and exported as MIDI to your DAW or notation software.

focus view

Focus

Focus mode lets you highlight the instrument in the stereo mix that you want to hear. And when you're done figuring out the part then switch to inverted Focus mode to remove the instrument and practice with the backing track.

slow it pitch it

Change tempo, pitch or both!

zplane's elastique Pro is one of the best and the most used time-stretching algorithms in the world. And of course, it's also inside deCoda. You can slow things down or speed them up and change the key to make it fit your instrument or voice. deCoda also detects the tuning frequency of the song and matches it automatically to your preferred tuning frequency - no manual setup needed.

metronome

Metronome

Need a metronome for practice? If you want deCoda can add a metronome, clicking in 4th, 8th or 16th beats - always in sync with your song. It can also add a 1 or 2 bar count-in and even identify a potential upbeat, so you will never miss the first note again.

library

Internal library

Everything you drop into deCoda will be kept safe in the internal library. No more hassle figuring out where to save a project or finding the corresponding audio file. Just type the song's name into the search bar, and in no time you're where you left off last time.

project sharing

Sharing

Need to share a project with a bandmate, producer, friend or a student? No problem, just export the project, and all including the audio will be one easily shareable file. Also, you can export the slowed version of the loop you're working on to put it on any playback device. And just send the notes you've figured out to a MIDI file or directly to any notation software of your choice.

light dark theme

Light/dark theme

Wherever you're using deCoda, we have the theme to suit. Sitting in a cafe doing your transcriptions, the light theme will give you the necessary contrast. While the dark theme will reduce eye strain when practising in the studio, basement or figuring out a song at night.
