Hello, forum friends A remixed version of the Beatles’“Revolver” was recently released. According to the music article, each instrument, voice, etc. are separated from the previous recordings using AI into independent tracks and remixed. The same is possible with Steinberg's SpectraLayers now. (but not perfect) This time, I used the SpectraLayers to extract only vocals from past recording and added a new accompaniment. It's basically an early 60's 12/8 feel rock-a-ballad. But I added a l

You can't chain midi plugins in Biab, but if you use Element you can There are a lot of Piz midi plugs like midiForceToRange.dll and you have reajs.dll that is in ReaPlugs that allows many Reaper midi plugs, it will list all the plugins you have in Reaper or you can set it to use a local folder.

I particularly liked the way you built the dynamics in the beginning. I was unsure of your voice in the 1st phrase but it proved a good fit for the music after that point.

Nicely done Bryon Dickens. You make my point for me. You seem "wilfully" ignorant of the contents of my posts. Much of your new post is about working within a system and it's "rules". Again, you make my point for me. I suggested that someone might begin to create without reference to a set of rules. "...one has to use it similar to the way others do if one wishes to be comprehensible." Again you make my point for me. I didn't restrict musical history to a couple of

Torrey, This is the perfect Torrey sound. The clarinet and ukulele are also rare. Vocals and harmonies are great as always. I feel a little Paul McCartney in this tune. Best regards. Shigeki Adachi

floyd, Janice & Bud, It's a song that uses a minor key, which is rare for you. The atmosphere is very relaxed and duets with Janice are great. The mix using effects very well, also perfectly directs this song. It sounds very professional. Enjoyed my listen a lot. Best regards. Shigeki Adachi

Marty and Dave, It's a song with a very laid back atmosphere that makes me feel relieved. It's basically a country song, but I felt that something was added to it. The vocals and guitars are cleverly matched, making for a very professional production. The video also matches the music very well. Enjoyed my listen and watch a lot. Best regards. Shigeki Adachi

Janne, It's a beautiful song with a Celtic feel. The video also fits the mood of the song perfectly. I was impressed with how skillfully you used the vocal synthesizers. No wonder you won the song contest. Congratulations! Enjoyed my listen and watch a lot. Best regards. Shigeki Adachi

The melody line is a bit reminiscent of Squeeze, which is good in my book. I like the reference at the end - nice. Good song, I enjoyed it! OK, on to criticisms you can feel free to ignore. Since this is sort of emulating classic rock, I'd suggest comparing the mix to some classic rock songs. For fun, I brought up a couple of Rolling Stones songs on YouTube - Sympathy for the Devil and Baby Please Don't Go. The first thing I noticed was that the mix wasn't that bright or piercing. The nex

Love the sound and the song. You can put me in the category of people who don't like to hear lead guitar competing with vocals. But you can't please everyone, so you may as well please yourself first. But that's a minor nit. Fun song!

Love the groove! As usual, everyone on the team knocked it out of the park: BiaB, vocals, guitar, mix... It's all there! Fun listen, from start to end! Nice to see the mixing magic that went into each track also!

Hi, James. The balance seems a bit off - the vocal is a bit bassy, and the backing too far in the back. Without a melodic line, it feels to me like the lyric comes to an end, but the backing just keeps going, without having noticed the speaking part is done. Not bad, just not my cup of tea. Your vocal recording technique has certainly gotten better!

That guitar lick let me know right away how awesome the song was going to be. Catchy country pop - love it. Everything sounds great! And yes - with pop music, repetition of a good idea just makes it better!

If you just put the midi track into Reaper and set the regions: Red will fit any chord match in any color part, pink is leadin or countin notes, endings are 4 bars etc.. If it is just a chorded track you can put all the midi onto one track, if it's a scale track have separate tracks for each key and just have scale/Scale in the name, if it's a drum track have drum/Drum in the name, these will just match the color to color sections. Save the regions as csv the same name as the midi usertrack. Pia

Nice song! Weina has a lovely voice, and her personality shines through here. As a native speaker (and user of the software) I'd prefer the accent be gone, but it does no damage to the song. I also thought that the first verse felt like it was pitched high for her, but I suspect part of that is that I'm just not that used to hearing someone sing that high. Another factor is when SynthesizerV "humanizes" pitches, it pulls the vocal slightly out of tune. It's a delicate balance - too

Holding chord for the verse just makes the chorus that much sweeter. No complaints here!
