There seems to be some confusion about exactly what you would like (or at

I am not sure what you mean by the term adaptive.  Do you have some sight

By the term add orchestrations, do you mean add additional instruments in
addition to your vocal parts (which is of course possible with multi-track
recording), or do you mean convert the vocal parts into other
Do you want to convert to MIDI data to drive synthesizers or samplers to
mimic traditional orchestration?  And preferably convert to conventional
music notation as a final step?

Depending on what workflow you would like, I suspect that pitch-to-MIDI
may be the term you are looking for.  That would involve recording a vocal

to account for differences between vocal range and instrument range, add
details which are difficult to sing, etc.
