3 min read • 15th Jun 2022

In this article, we’re going to look at how singer-songwriters can use Dubler 2 to easily produce and finish full songs!

Dubler 2 is software that allows you to perform any instrument with your voice. This includes drums, melodies, chords, basslines, effects and much more.

This is made possible via a process called Voice-to-MIDI. The way this works is that the notes you sing are converted to MIDI data.

This allows you to perform any instrument or sample in your music-making program/digital audio workstation (DAW).

Dubler 2 works with all DAW’s including Logic Pro X, Ableton Live, FL Studio, Cubase etc.
