Polyphonic Audio Editing

I’ve only dabbled with audio editing – bedroom recording stuff – and the most common scenario for me has been timestretching or altering the pitch of songs so I can play along with it. When I’ve tried to record and mix my own tracks, it’s pretty common for me to hit a wrong note and have to abort the take. This software should stop that:

It lets you monophonicise (TM) a waveform, for example a guitar chord, and adjust individual notes. Very impressive. I can’t even begin to think how the software would deal with this, but if the video is anything to go by it’s very good at whatever it is that it does!

    As with most really new bits of software it doesn\’t ALWAYS do exactly what it says on the box !
    It would seem impossible to distinguish one instrument from another when harmonically related. The wording in the voice over says " it isolates a single note from a VERY BASIC chord structure " … probably says it all !
    Another 6months before full launch of the product I gather
