Nice one Mario. The vocal needs to be at least as loud as the snare - with a little more compression to even it, (VOLA2 is a cool plug in for evening a vocal track). The band is spot on for the genre. Interesting coincidence of the last line of the last verse given you played everything. BIAB as a song writing tool is hard to beat though. Almost Famous is a good film too!

A couple of more dBs on the main vocal are needed Ronnie. Nice band.

Nice one Rob, I think there needs to be something emphasized in the 1st part of the 1st bridge prior to the solo guitar The bovox are cool though I suspect they may benefit from a little more stereo spread. Cool - yeaaaahhh at the end. Enjoyed it!

There is JJazzLabMac that will open Biab SGU/MGU and use YAMAHA Styles. Other than that just hope PG implements.

MusicLab guitars have articulations and comes with a pattern library and you can create custom patterns. I will let Rusty post in the wishlist. In RapidComposer I can create keyswitch map for all the articulations any instruments, below I'm using Ample Bass Guitar then you just right click on the note and it will set it to any articulation, so you can save the midi phrases with the articulations and they will fit any chord section any octave but still retain the keyswitches.

The issue is Band-in-a-Box does not have a way to address the use of VSTi articulation maps. Musocity's suggestion is one way Band-in-a-Box can address your suggestion. I hope he will post the suggestion in the Band-in-a-Box wishlist. Misha, thanks for providing the development company names. It was interesting to look at their products. As far as a DAW is concerned there is no difference in applying an Articulation map to trigger VSTi generated phrases than using an Articulation map to sel

Sounds like old rock and roll, which I like. The instruments almost overpowered the vocals in some spots, but overall a good recording!!

Jim, Ujam, Sonokinetic and I am sure many others that use key switches for pattern changes. Seems Musocity is on the right path: "automatically change/update the block midi chords when changed in the chord sheet and an option to ignore/leave all notes outside (above/below) the note range set for chords."

Misha, Do you mind providing one or more VSTi example of a pattern based VSTi that can program pattern changes and shots/holds. I'm wondering if we are on the same page but maybe saying the same thing two different ways. If not I may better understand your request after looking at VSTis that work as you describe.

thanks for that - unfortunately ive been down that road and nothing exists like the feature I am suggesting in BIAB and at the end of day I just want this added to BIAB and not have to rely on free user made apps. Plus the vast majority turn out to only run on windows and im a Mac guy - but ive tried many using parallels too

That's why I cry when I come here. If Gordon Ramsay was up on DAW's we should get him here. I put some posts out trying to get knowledgeable users to come here to give improvement ideas, I was going to buy them Biab to test and use, but never got any response other than one user seeing the BBPlugin released and buying it only to not be able to use it as if was not working how it should for him so he gave up on the idea, how many others on this planet has done this ?

I Was Almost Famous I am way out of my comfort zone with this one. This song took longer than any other song that I have done. Constant changes prior to selecting a style and constant changes after! But here it is. It was suggested that I hold off on my commentary and let people describe what their visions are so I will tell you mine in the next message. An interesting note that after I chose a style and after I got done playing my instruments the only thing left was the chord track, but

Just saying... Reaper is well known and famous for its frequent updates. For what can be concidered a mature product, V1 released V1 in 12/2005, these new features and bug fixes are epic with each update. Reaper V6 released on Dec 7, 2019. So 74 updates in past 3 years 2 Months. By the way, the [t=#] at the end of many lines identifies the bug/request to allow traceability. Here is todays update: REAPER 6.74 is available, with the following updates: + Accessibility: improve descrip

Jim, Articulations are another animal. I am strictly talking about key switches for pattern based VSTi's for programming pattern changes and shots/holds When you create a Chord Track through Preferences>Output Chords, you are given a choice of range. The easiest way, I think it can be done is to have a "second" range reserved for key switches, that will remain in place, no matter what you do with re-generation or chord changes, to be only edited manually through piano roll, while

As Mark Hayes said, you cannot use the handy "Quick Reply" area. You have to click "Reply" on a specific post .. then in the resulting window scroll down a little and look for the tiny little File Manager link. Works great (usually) once you find it. It is always available in an new post, but in a reply there is a certain click path needed to access it.
