Moin, ich habe nochmal ne Frage zum Midi Sound. Was muss ich tun, damit es nicht wie Zirkusmusik klingt? Ich habe ein Yamaha AG06 angeschlossen (was ja keine Midi Funktion hat) und ansonsten unter Midi Treiber Ausgabe die übliche Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth.
Was würdet Ihr empfehlen? Ein neue Soundkarte? oder Software? Oder habe ich irgenwas falsch eingestellt? Ich bin noch Newbie, was Midi angeht...
Ich würde außerdem gerne einen Gypgsy Jazz Sound im 3/4 Takt finden... alle gypsy real Tracks sind leider in 4/4, deswegen versuche ich Midi. Hat jemand 'ne Idee?

Hallo Uwe,
es gibt ganz schöne Gypsy Walzer RealStyles (mit und ohne Drums), wenn du die nicht in deinen Styles gefunden hast, kannst Du sie auch nachkaufen, sie sind im RealStylpak 129 zu bekommen, für 29$ oder natürlich als Teil einer der Pakete.
Die Frage nach der Soundqualität bei MIDI-Files hängt tatsächlich sehr vom verwendeten Synthesizer ab, der Microsoft eigene SoftSynth klingt schon sehr schlicht. Es gibt eine ganze Reihe guter, besserer und noch besserer MIDI-Synthies unter Windows (für umsonst, weniger Geld oder mehr Geld ;-). Ich habe für meinen kleinen Laptop vor einigen Tagen eine Lizenz des ganz guten WinLive-Softsynths gekauft. Das ist ien italienischer Anbieter, geh mal auf dessen Seite und hör dir das mal an
http://www.promusicsoftware.com/detail0.php?prod=5553&cat=15001400
Die hatten einen Black Friday Angebot für € 14,50, aber auch für € 29 ist der noch ganz attraktiv.
Etwas weiter unten auf der Seite gibts auch Klangbeispiele.
Berichte mal hier im Forum über Deine Erfahrungen, wenn du dich für einen neuen Midi-Synthy entscheidest.

Hi Brille,
danke für die Empfehlung des Winlive Synth, scheint wirklich gut zu klingen, wenn man die Beispiele hört. Ist wohl einen Versuch wert, ich werde berichten.
Zum Thema Gypsy Jazz: ich hatte mir den Pack 129 vor ein paar Tagen wirklich schon nachgekauft, aber wie bekomme ich die auf einen 3/4 Takt? Ich will ja auch nicht immer fragen, aber das RTFM hilft mir da nicht viel weiter...

Hallo Uwe,
die Frage kann ich noch nicht ganz nachvollziehen, aber wir kriegen das hin.
Zunächst: hast Du dein Stück denn schon als Walzer, also im 3/4 Takt angelegt (also z.B. im Feld Taktart rechts neben dem Stylenamen und unter Start-Ende-Strophen "3/4" angegeben)?

Wenn du einen Walzerstyle, z.B. die Styledatei "_GYPSW8S.STY" über den Stylepicker zuweist, wird dein Stück ohnehin, selbst wenn es vorher im 4/4 vorlag, in ein 3/4 gewandelt (nach Warnhinweis), das ist aber meist nicht im Sinn des Erfinders.

Möglicherweise wird dir aber der "_GYPSW8S.STY" gar nicht im Stylepicker angezeigt, weil du evtl. oben im Filter als Taktart nur "4/4" anzeigen vorgegeben hast? Dann hier im Stylepicker im Filterfenster auf das kleine Dreieck neben der 4/4 gehen und aus dem Dropdown 3/4 auswählen und oben im Suchfeld zum Beispiel "gypsw82" eintippen. Dann sollte der Style angezeigt werden. Den dann unten mit dem "OK"-Button deinem Song zuweisen, dann sollte es laufen.
Check das mal. Bei mir funktioniert das alles tadellos.

ok, sorry - ich hatte Pack 109 geladen, nicht 129. Dann ist meine Frage natürlich nicht verständlich. Klar, damit ist es ja kein Problem (Gypsy Waltz!) smile Noch eine Frage, wie aktiviere winlive synth in Biab. Kommt es automatisch, wenn ich es installiert und freigeschaltet habe?
Danke nochmal

Hallo Uwe,

wie alle MIDI-Synthies: Nach der Installation und Aktivierung von WinLive (das darfst du übrigens auf bis zu 5 Rechnern gleichzeitig machen, ich habe mir das von ProMusic bestätigen lassen) unter Band in a Box auf Optionen-MIDI/Audio-Treibereinstellungen gehen. Dort als MIDI Ouput Treiber WinLive anwählen, voilà!

User Blog - How To Record a Cover Song Using Band-in-a-Box and RealBand

Joanne Cooper's final blog post for 2017, How to record a cover song using Band-in-a-Box and RealBand is a must-read!

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows boasts more than 50 new features... and a lot of the new features fill the requests posted by program users!

Some of these include:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I love the Audio Chord Wizard, as it figures out chords from mp3 and other audio files. But it is a separate program from Band-in-a-Box, and I can’t go back and forth to change things easily.

A. We've solved that, as BiaB 2018 has integrated the Audio Chord Wizard directly into Band-in-a-Box. Now load an audio file into BiaB, open the Audio Edit Window – Audio Chord Wizard mode, and let it automatically figure out the bar lines and chords for the song.

Q. I like to save songs as MP3 files, and can't do this with BiaB, except a very low quality one, 64kbps.

A. We've improved this, by adding support for Windows Media Foundation. This allows you to save MP3 in your choice of resolutions, up to very high 320mpbs. Better still, it works on current versions of Windows (Windows 7,8,10) and also on older versions too (Vista, XP).

We've answered 49 questions - review all of these answers on our forum post "49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box 2018" here.

All of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows can be reviewed at http://www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.new.htm
