Jump to new posts FUN with DRUM STEMS by rayc @ 01/05/22 08:12 PM

After ordering my BIAB USB drive on the 30th of December and receiving it on the 5th January, (that's pretty flash for the distances and the New Years fuss, I decided to find out whether my most wanted change was up to scratch. I built a song in BIAB this morning selecting a seven stem RealDrum part...exported the lot to Reaper, replaced the guitars n bass, kept the organ and then did a VERY simple mix of the drums, (panning & levels)...no processing other than sending the snare bottom to th

In some rare cases you may want to rebuild the StylePicker list after making this setting.

Bravo! Well done. You, Dave, and your late friend Steve, all hit your marks perfectly. Very well written song. Outstanding vocals. Great guitar playing. Production was top notch. The Band kicked in good too. Nice one.

Your C drive doesn't currently have enough space to do a full installation on the internal HD in full. You can do the Option 2 split installation and install the main program to the C drive and then install the rest of the content to your D drive where you mentioned your other RealTracks and Drums already are. You can also install everything to the D drive. Or, you could run everything from the external HD that's supplied to you. In all honesty, I've not seen an issue with speed running solely f

Mario make a good point that the answer here differs whether you are talking MIDI or RealTracks, with the notation overlap on some RealTracks. This is your wish, and if you want busier, it’s your call..

Great to hear that. I've experienced that not in songwriting but in my improvising. It's not an easy thing to find your voice. Well worth the struggle though.

Thank you all for listening and for those that commented as well. Nigel,the "Philadelphia Sound" as espoused by the artists, writers, and producers of Philly International Records and others, is one of my favorite styles of music so I'm sure that much of the music that I write is influenced by the Philadelphia Sound in some way. Keep making great music, all! Peace, -rob

Good thoughts but 1- I think it should be very simple, intermediate, and busy with busy being what it is now. This might require three different RT bass tracks. 2- This is very easy with MIDI and the right bass synth. For RTs it would require tripling the bass line and the user would select which one to use and where. 3- Again with MIDI this is easy. As Matt pointed out if the RT bass has a line under it it also has a MIDI version of the track, minus some nuances like string bends, vibrato
