What is AudioCipher?
Is this the future of composing music in a DAW?
When someone says "the words for a song", they're usually talking about a song's lyrics.
But what if your favorite artist was planting words directly into the music itself? If they had access to some technology that transcoded letters into music notes, it wouldn't be difficult to apply chords and rhythm to the hidden melody.
By the time one of these transcoded, embedded melodies became a full song and reached its audience, the musician could sing lyrics about something entirely different. And yet the underlying music would still have its original seed of human thought - the word transcribed into music notes.
If that sounds far out, it is! And yet classical composers have used musical cryptograms for centuries, beginning with J.S. Bach, to hide their names inside piano concertos.
AudioCipher's algorithm makes this classic technique available within the modern DAW. It takes words that you type in and transcodes them into MIDI notes.
The music notes are not random - any time you enter that word with the same key signature, this melody will be produced.
What would your name's musical signature sound like?

A novel and innovative idea of a project. I am a hobbyist digital musician and highly interested in computational cryptography/cryptology and steganography, so this intrigues me. 4 stars only because I do not have current access to any desktop DAW that this would require.
