Have you tried this plugin?

Zynaptiq who makes unique plugins such as Unveil and Unfilter has released a 1.50 update for their PITCHMAP plugin.

I think PITCHMAP a great tool for producers/remixers/DJs. What do you think?
"PITCHMAP is a demixing-based plug-in that allows changing melodies and harmonies of any mixed musical recording in real-time, either by transforming them to new ones played on a MIDI keyboard, or by setting freely defined target scales. Based on Zynaptiqʼs proprietary MAP (Mixed-Signal Audio Processing) artificial intelligence technology, PITCHMAP can be applied to a wide variety of tasks, including original music production, remix work, correction of tuning issues and creative manipulation of existing recordings."


  • Automatic correction of pitch inaccuracies in polyphonic and mixed signals
  • Mapping of source to destination pitches via the GUI
  • Definition of destination pitch grid via live MIDI
  • Process bypass on arbitrary notes selected by their fundamental pitch
  • all of which leaves non-pitched signals like drums virtually untouched
  • Suppression & Extraction of mix elements based on their pitch using Mute Filters via GUI or MIDI control
  • Continuously variable unique synthetic coloration options via parameters Electrify and Purify
  • Polyphonic portamento/glides using the Glide parameter
  • High-speed workflow: options to rapidly generate complex pitch maps using macro controls
  • Snapshot functionality to allow rapid creation of automation
  • Mono/Stereo plug-in supporting 44.1kHz and 48kHz sampling rates (higher rates being worked on)

1.50 update adds the following:
  • Now also supports VST (32/64bit), RTAS and AAX Native (32/64bit) on Mac and Windows, in addition to AudioUnits on the Mac.
  • Improved algorithm.
  • New preset management functionality accessible from within the plug-in GUI allows user presets to be used across all plug-in formats on all platforms.
  • New factory presets organized by application.
  • Completely re-designed automation system for improved automation workflow.
  • New option to enter values numerically by double-clicking controls.
  • Snapshots now contain Sliders and Keyboard states only for better workflow.
  • Enhanced compatibility with Mac OS X Sandboxing.
  • New authorization app for a more streamlined user experience.
