Buenos días, Carlos:
Me gustaría plantear un problema que tengo, a ver si tiene solución.
He escrito una canción para mi nieta en el estilo _BASIE1.STY que está en el apartado de "Grandes Bandas" y tiene todas las pistas MIDI.
La verdad es que después de utilizar el AUDIOPHILE y comprobar lo bien que suena el AUDIO, me gustaría que la canción conservara el ritmo y la gracia que tiene ese estilo pero la calidad del AUDIO.
He visto que hay otro BASIE1 dentro del mismo apartado que tiene algunas pistas AUDIO, pero no es igual .

La misma situación se me plantea con el estilo BOLERO2. He escrito otra canción en ese estilo pero tiene el mismo problema, todas las pistas son MIDI y aunque he intentado un HIBRIDO entre ese estilo y Bossa de pistas AUDIO, no suena igual, no tiene el ritmo clásico de los Boleros y me gustaría que sonara AUDIO.

En fin, Carlos, la verdad es que después de usar BIAB AUDIOPHILE y ver el sonido tan espectacular que tiene, me gustaría saber si estos estilos que te comento ya existen con los patrones de MIDI, pero en AUDIO y como conseguirlos o si hay alguna forma de convertir los midis en AUDIO, pero conservando los patrones del MIDI .

Otra cosa que he observado en AUDIOPHILE es que no existen muestreos AUDIO para CUERDAS. que son muy importantes a la hora de acompañamiento de las otras pistas, sobre todo en determinados estilos...

Bueno, Carlos, no quiero resultar pesado, pero la verdad es que he quedado sorprendido y maravillado por la innovación del audio en este BIAB 2010.5 y me gustaría utilizar todos los recursos que ofrece para mi nuevo disco.

Como siempre gracias a Biab por el producto y a ti por tu paciencia y profesionalidad.
Un cordial saludo. Isidro.

Hola Isidro, de nuevo bienvenido al foro. Tu pregunta es muy interesante ya que de ella se deriva a su vez el tema de la calidad de estilos y audio, y la relación estrecha entre las RealTracks y los estilos MIDI. Estoy preparando (y lo amerita realmente) una respuesta con algunos ejemplos que seguro te serán de utilidad y al mismo tiempo quizá te sorprendas por los recursos "estilísticos" y al mismo tiempo técnicos y de audio, algunos de ellos un poquito "ocultos", que posee Band-in-a-Box o que podemos aplicar en el, sobre todo con las configuraciónes de RealTracks mas completas como la AudioPhile que adquiriste. Pronto colocaré la respuesta de manera organizada aqui mismo en este hilo.

Un gran saludo!

Carlos Eduardo Arellano

Band-in-a-Box® User Feedback - Wow!

There are so many ways to get in touch with people these days... phone, email, social networking, etc.... so of course we hear more feedback from program users these days!
...and here's what they're saying:

"I discovered Band in a Box about a year ago. I hesitated several times before purchasing it as I couldn't quite believe it was going to be as good as the hype. I eventually relented and I can honestly say, it's an incredible program and does some amazing things. As a songwriter, it's an indispensable tool and I can't imagine not having it."
-Vince C.

"I bought the first band in a box for my Atari 1040 ST and I used it for at least 10 years before upgrading to a Windows computer. After real drums, and then real tracks, came out I have upgraded every December since. The program is absolutely inspired and inspirational."
-Kirk O.

"Not everyone can find or afford real musicians to assist them when writing songs - and if working from home, as many songwriters do, there might not be room for them. Band In A Box does the next best thing and takes recordings of real musicians performing, then makes the material available pretty much in real time, in a form that adapts to your own composition by following the chord sequences. Hard to explain simply, but fairly amazing in practice."
-Steve C.

"Great tool for musicians - and the drummer keeps a steady beat!!"
-Maurice A.

"Great for learning new songs. I was weak on country rock songs and with the combination of using Riffstation and BIAB I am able to creat my own backup track for live performance and practicing songs with easier chording... Thanks PG!"
-Laurent C.

"I have it since 2001, use it all the time, great program!"
-John F.

"Thank you Band in a Box. I am a songwriter, and don't play several instruments, so I love being able to wear 2 hats and write and produce, and then later record vocals... You have probably saved me months/years on my project. Excellent tool. Thanks again!"
-Randy A.

"Didn't think I would ever go down that road but got roped into it by another muso friend, bought it and now loving it!"
-Fred P.
