We're making some Jazz GUitar Solo Accompaniment Jazz Guitar styles. We have 2 choices of guitar to use - a "Solidy Body" or a Archtop (Super400). This would be a solo guitar style, to backup a singer or sax player etc.

Please have a listen to the sample, and place your vote in this thread

Solid Body (Roadstar) (example #1 on the demo)

Archtop Super 400 (example #2 on the demo)

http://nn.pgmusic.com/pgfiles/jazzu/misc/2_Guitars_Ballad_060_Sample.mp3

To vote, just reply with the words "Solid Body (Roadstar)" or "Archtop (Super 400)" near the top, along with any comments that you have.

Archtop (Super 400) gets my vote. Especially for backing up a singer.

I do prefer the Super 400; it sounds more subtle to me.

I prefer the sound of the Solid Body because of the better defined bass notes.
Bass notes sounds a little muddy on the archtop.
Looking forward to try these realtracks!

Archtop (super 400)

Not an electric guitar player, but reminds me of a Joe Pass sound. Humm...

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - Importing MIDI Files

Did you know that Standard MIDI files can be read in to the Melodist or Soloist track within Band-in-a-Box? You can use all of the MIDI File, or select channels or a specific range of bars, using these steps:
1. Melody | Import Melody from MIDI File to select a MIDI file from disk using the file dialog.
2. Melody | Import Melody from Clipboard - when the MIDI data is already copied from another program to the

A new window will open, asking for additional criteria - which channels, # of bars to offset..., # of bars to import, include lyrics, include patch changes - and more! Head to our online manual Chapter 10: Working with MIDI to learn more!
