ADIG HUMAN SYNCHRONIZER TM
A REVOLUTIONARY TEMPO CONTROLLER
THAT PUTS THE MUSICIAN
BACK IN CHARGE!
YOU ARE NO LONGER LOCKED
TO THE MACHINES TEMPO DICTATIONS
AND YOU CAN
ONE TIME FOR ALL
SAY GOODBYE
TO THE “CLICK”
ADIG was created with a vision of making new and inventive technologies for the music industry.
Being musicians, we see the need for solutions that does not yet exist.
The idea for developing the Human Synchronizer is to provide tempo control for the musician to
manage his gear; delays, sequenzers, drum-machines, loopers, etc., in real-time.
Furthermore, it is important for us to get rid of the click ticking in your ears while playing.
We are therefore proud to introduce the Adig Human Synchronizer
with its' superb tempo technology.
THE ADIG HUMAN SYNCHRONIZER™ V2.0
FEATURES THE WORLD'S BEST
TECHNOLOGY OF IT'S KIND;
THE ADIG TEMPO TECHNOLOGY.
We give you the possibility to control tempo in real-time while performing, or to detect
and follow tempo of recorded music. You can even import the tempoinformation detected
by the ADIG HUMAN SYNCHRONIZER™ into your music notation software og studio
recording session.
Normally when using loopers, sequencers or drum machines, you will have to follow a
static tempo, but our technology restores the organic feel in your music.
Any equipment that supports a MIDI CLOCK can be controlled from the
ADIG HUMAN SYNCHRONIZER™, making it easy to use the gear that you already own.
New in version 2.0 is the unsurpassed ADIG ONSET algorithm that can detect tempo from any
instrument! New is also our ADIG BEAT DETECT algorithm that liberates the musician from the
requirement of hearing the click.
IMAGINE BEING ABLE TO USE TEMPO MUSICALLY
AND CREATIVELY AGAIN, WHERE THE MUSICIAN,
IN REAL-TIME, REPLACES THE METRONOME,
A MUSICIAN'S DREAM!
TEMPO FROM ANY AUDIO
HOW IT WORKS
To set a tempo, the ADIG HUMAN SYNCHRONIZER™
gives you the following control options:
• using an expression pedal controller
• using a pitch or modulation wheel on your keyboard, or any other controller knob
• any MIDI controller with buttons or tap pads
... and at best:
• the ADIG HUMAN SYNCHRONIZER™ listens and detects the tempo
from your playing - while you are playing.
When using the ADIG HUMAN SYNCHRONIZER™
you can apply both audio and midi input.
Audio input in ADIG HUMAN SYNCHRONIZER™ v2
works with all instruments imaginable, even the human voice!
The ADIG HUMAN SYNCHRONIZER™ stand-alone software
is available both as Windows and Mac versions.
THE ADIG TEMPO TECHNOLOGY
ADIG’s cutting edge tempo technology is ideal for integration in sequenzers, drum machines,
delays, loopers, digital pianos, in any DAWs, or simply as a stand alone tempo controller software.
Our tempo technology is made up of several sets of algorithms.
From low level to high level these are:
• onset detector
• tempo tracking
• beat detect
The onset detector translates audio input into beat events. This translation is performed by
our patent pending algorithm working both in time and frequency domain. We know of no
technology that matches our algorithm, being perfect as the low level algorithm used in
sequenzers for finding onset events from audio.
The tempo tracking system is our original algorithms, first shown at NAMM 2009.
This makes it possible for the sequenzers to stay in synch with the player.
Our beat detect algorithm finds the tempo of an incoming audio or midi stream and syncs to
this steam. The musician no longer requires to hear a click to perform.
All our algorithms work in real time. By being very efficient in nature, these algorithms can be
used for having the musician control the machines live in performance as well as in studio
situations.

ONSET DETECTOR EXAMPLE
To show how our onset detector works, we have run it in 3 sound samples attached at our web
sites www.adiginvention.com (illustrated below). In the audio file, the original file is in the left
channel, and the ADIG detected onsets are added to the right channel. The illustrations show
the original sound on top and the result of the ADIG onset detector at the bottom. The files were
imported into Ableton Live where we did a warping of the samples. Ableton Live sets tempo
markers according to the beat detected, (shown as vertical, grey lines).
Having a look at the Red Hot Chilli Peppers sample, we see that Ableton does a good job at finding
the tempo. The ADIG onset detector and the Ableton Live beats line up pretty neatly.
Looking at the more complex Susanne Vega sample, the correct tempo is found by having a look
at the ADIG onset markers. The most common distance between the markers is usually used to
determine the tempo. For the Vega sample, Ableton Live is not able to find the tempo.
Symphonic music is even more demanding for detecting tempos. The ADIG onset detector can
even find onsets in music where the tempo information lies in pitch changes. The Ravel orchestral
sample shows clearly a regular distance between onsets that can be used for tempo extraction.
For your convenience we have added a user interface window for adjusting spectrum sensitivity.
Adjust sensitivity in the most relevant spectrum, where the most significant tempo information in
that particular song, or the instrument you play, or the music genre, is at. In example, treble-range
where beat is on high-hat, or in bass-range for kick-drum.
