The [micin~] abstraction reads an incoming signal and reports the derived (via Katja Vetter's helmholtz~ external) note number, (and what the user sets for) velocity and channel number.
Thereby (most espaecially) allowing patches which take [notein]'s as their source to also take the mic.
Most practical application: being able to run non-midi instruments, ex. guitars, thru synthesisers and so use them as pedals.

/synth : the 1.poly.synth.pd used in example2
example1.pd : a simple example using C10.monophonic.synth.pd from Help>Pure Data>docs>audio examples
example2.pd : a more complex example also using the pd help files under >stuff
micin~.pd : the abstraction

Please, let me know if there is something I was foggy in my logic about this, or have not made clear in the example.
The helmholtz~ tool is awesome and really great and fast at doing this, I basically just cleaned it up and abstracted it.
On the other hand, I have already incorporated it into quite a few synth effects for use with my guitar, aka. see "jazzed" for how excited I am to get back to the studio.

[helmholtz ~] uses the Specially Normalized AutoCorrelation function (SNAC), developed by Philip McLeod. For more information about SNAC, see article and thesis by Philip McLeod:
