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

#FunFactFriday - Where is PG Music Inc?

Did you know that PG Music Inc. is located in Victoria, British Columbia (Canada)?

Victoria, BC is located on Vancouver Island. Don't let the name fool you, we are not located in Vancouver (a common mistake...)

Our city is home to and endless list of attractions, including: the Legislature Building (we are the capital city of British Columbia), the Craigdarroch Castle, loads of Art Galleries, Butchart Gardens, the Royal BC Museum, CFB Esquimalt, and loads of other great tourist stops! We are also lucky enough to have a huge music scene (a few of our PG Team members perform often!).

There has also been a lot of movies and TV shows filmed here - including X-Men, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and X-Men: The Last Stand (Royal Roads University is the Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters)!

#TBT - The MIDI File Chord Interpretation Wizard!

Travel back in time to December 2001, and the release of Band-in-a-Box 11 for Windows... which included the new feature The MIDI File Chord Interpretation Wizard!

This new feature was described as:
Many people who play music by ear think of songs in terms of “Chords and Melody.” However many MIDI files lack chord symbols, so they become difficult to learn without the user having to figure out the chords in a time consuming process. Now you can open up any MIDI file in Band-in-a-Box, and Band-in-a-Box will automatically figure out the chords of the song for you. It automatically analyzes the MIDI file, figures out where the bass, piano, melody and other tracks are, and then figures out the chord changes for the song. The chords are written onto the Band-in-a-Box chordsheet like any other song. This allows you to quickly learn how to play a song from a MIDI file - just read it into Band-in-a-Box and you’ll see the chord symbols, and then learn the Melody! You can also read tracks into the Melody and Soloist tracks.

If you're interested in reading about all the features released with Band-in-a-Box 11, visit this page. Other new features added with this version back in 2001 include Jazz Music Fonts for Notes, Symbols, Chords & Titles, Multiple Tracks of Notation, "Direct-to-Disk Audio Rendering, and more!

Introducing The Band-in-a-Box Keychain!

For just $5 you can add your very own Band-in-a-Box keychain to any order you place with us!

When placing an order for any item on our website, our shopping cart will offer to add this item to your shipment.

You can also purchase it on its own, here:
