I agree with StrumBum. Playing a chord on an 1/8 or 1/16 of a beat should be the norm. Many years ago a program called Jammer allowed chord inputs at 1/8 or 1/16 of a beat. Jammer is not longer updated but it was ahead of BiaB at the time. https://ccm.net/download/download-12111-jammer-professional Note Jammer was/is only for MIDI as MIDI was the only available at that time. Today BiaB has more MIDI styles as well as RTs but inputting chords on the 1/8 or 1/16 of a beat should be the nor

Mike thanks - and it's not stating the obvious for me, as 20 years ago BIAB didn't have RealTracks or RealStyles - it was just Midi back then, so I feel I've got a pretty steep learning curve to get up.

Mike, the instruments in the style _HEART play and sound good . It's true there have been " sound " glitches in some styles and i suggest you make a special post. Posting that finding within a topic just gets lost. i leave your RealBand questions to the Window gurus since in my opinion there is no need for PG's RealBand in the Mac world . As always, happy Banding to you.

If the Tempo map works, there is also the Fill option in the Tempo Map window, which allows an 'auto adjustment' from bar A to bar B on the desired ritard. However in this scenario it does not auto adjust existing audio in my experience.

Tom and Janice, I don't know what to say about this. It's such a good listen. Blues really sits so very comfortably with the two of you. From that attention-grabbing opening through every syllable of lyric and every note of guitar, this musical trip is completely engaging and professionally presented. I never cease to marvel at how talented the two of you are. Wonderful music! All the best, Noel

Noel, Thanks a lot for YouTube videos. I also love major cliché. Instead, I love all the cliché, and I use them frequently in my songs. Both "The Greatest Love Of All" and "Brazil" are also my favorite songs. Especially about "Brazil", I love Jobim's recording the most. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8goep7fVXk Because the song is like a mass of cliché. You often study cliché as well. It is a lot of fun for me to talk about the music theory with you. Than

I only tried the ACW once or twice and because I didn't get good results I abandoned any more attempts with it. But I do use the chord detection in Riffstation software on my computer, which I find is not bad at all, though not perfect. https://pro.riffstation.com/ Would be interested to find out from those who have used both methods which has given them the best results? Update And the good news seems to be if I am reading it correctly that this software is now free, https://play.riffs
