How to convert analog sound to a midi sound patch?

by hknmng / January 1, 2015 6:22 AM PST

I saw a digital music performance where the musician use a pigeon sound and play it with his keyboard, so the pigeon sound becomes the instrument and he plays it with his full 88 key keyboard making the pigeon sound to play 88 different keys.

How can I do this? I am completely new in digital music.

I am bored with my onboard MIDI sounds and want to record all sorts of analog sounds to replace the MIDI vibraphone sound that I have been using.

My tools are:
-Medion laptop, 8 gb ram, windows 7 home professional 64 bit.
-Cakewalk Sonar X2 as digital music composer software
-Ashton UMK62 usb midi controller (just ordered it online, not arrived yet)

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks for the reply. I googled on how to import .wav audio files in Soft Synth and I found that I can import .wav files (my audio recording sound files) into Rapture Soft Synth in Sonar X2 and I can now use a gong sound recording as the instrument in my midi composition. I'm happy!

I use a DAW too. It's surprising how much is out there free.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
