Both you guys are on the right track. grin In general, what is happening with the MC features is the same thing which applies to many features in BIAB. I call it "Conditional Dependence". The feature operates or does not operate as you expect: depending upon conditions which we don't know and which we may or may not be able to control. Simple right?

Thanks AudioTrack, but we're still not on the same page with this. frown I understood what you were trying to say about this the first time you were explaining about what the musician recorded at the session. "OK, so if the recording artist didn't record any audio passage on the micro-chord beats, there's no audio to play back. Period." You've reached an erroneous conclusion here. First of all you are talking about "the recording artist". Which artist are you referring to? Certainly not the band demo artist because they have nothing to do with this conversation at all. So that leaves the recording artist who played the vibes in the style _Jazvibe.sty. How do you know what he/she recorded? How do you know they DID NOT record any micro chords? Micro chords are being played in my song. Just not the right ones and not in the right rhythm. Do you understand what I am saying now? They could have recorded 100 micro chords. We just don't know. Or micro chords might be using a special BIAB algorithm, where they take a full chord and chop it up on the fly. I don't know about that, do you? In any event neither you nor I know what "the recording artist" for the style recorded. And to say, just because I am not getting the micro chord to play, "Well that proves the artist never recorded those specific micro chords" is erroneous I think. I need to add one more very important point. You might have missed the exchange I was having with Matt yesterday on this subject. To both his and my surprise we actually discovered the micro chords being played perfectly in one of my test songs!!! Neither he nor I know how they were entered but they are there for anyone to listen to! What does this prove? It proves that "the recording artist" did in fact record these micro chords OR BIAB is using a special algorithm to create these chords on the fly as I mentioned above.

The editor features are: DNA Direct Note Access – algorithms for polyphonic instruments such as piano and guitar Editing of individual notes within chords – with all the tools and macros Extended tempo functions – map and edit sudden or gradual changes of tempo Extended scale functions – create and modify scales; extract scales from audio material Unfortunately, it doesn't handle polyphonic vocals. I've got some old choir recordings I'd love to be able to edit, but that's beyond Melodyne's ability.

Re: iZotope Neutron FREE David Snyder Yesterday at 10:51 PM Forum: Recording, Mixing, Performance and Production Jump to new postsJump to new posts
I have Neutron 3, and Neutron 4 Elements, but I am really glad I got Neutron Elements, the first one. It allows you to use a lot of presets and gives you the ability to manipulate EQ. It is so lightweight you can put it on every track. The new Neutron Essentials 4 is mostly an AI assistant, and to do the stuff I want to do, you have to upgrade (so it is kind of a downgrade), and I am fine with Neutron 3 anyway. I stopped Ozone at Ozone 9. Love it. Hated Ozone 10. Ozone 5 is a beast. Still my Fav. I see other producers on the web swear by it too.

Re: Walk Them Blues Away rayc Yesterday at 10:02 PM Forum: User Showcase Jump to new postsJump to new posts
A good, relatively easy, challenge is to recite the alphabet by SOUND rather than letter name. It's something I taught for 30 years or so...simply because folk were being taught "A" before "a" which is spectacularly unhelpful when learning to read. It usually took about three months to get a room full of 12 year old kids able to read it by sound...a very few were able to do it without reading. Mind you I taught the names of the letters with pre Webster sounds so it ends with zed rather than zee. That man REALLY did a number of spelling & phonetics simply to break ties with Britain in the only way he had control of.

👍 Thanks again Dan. You are quite right with what you wrote to Muso above. One small thing though. I made several threads in a flurry a week or so ago. There is actually another thread I made dedicated to this Micro Chord problem (which I do believe is a bug). In this thread however I stated at the top: "I can copy and paste any regular chord from one bar to another, but I can't copy/paste a micro chord bar!" So this thread was about copying and pasting the micro chords that were typed in. Not about getting them to play properly. We eventually figured out why the chords weren't being copied properly on my computer. To copy a bar, I had always simply clicked on a bar with chords and hit Ctrl-C (copy) and then clicked on the bar I wanted to copy to and then hit Ctrl-V (paste). How was I to know that Micro Chords can not be copied using this method? smile

OM, you are being very king and helpful, as always, but... you are way off the mark with this one. (respectively said). The OP wants to use the BIAB features for MicroChords. You know that feature that allows you to place chords in a bar at 1/16th note resolution. It was one of the new 50 new features from years back now. In the F6 menu it has a selection for "triplets". Triplets are not something the OP hears in his head, it is a well defined sound and understood form of notation and playback. But the Micro Chords is NOT playing the chords in this manner. What you are giving us is a "workaround". Which may be fine. (BTW, I tried to DL you version using midi in the piano roll, but that site you use for storage tried to DL other software along with your file!! - Please git a google account and use the free Goggle Drive like everyone else.

Re: This Cold Spring Janice & Bud Yesterday at 08:16 PM Forum: User Showcase Jump to new postsJump to new posts
This song was worth the wait, Janne. 😊 The light feel of the band does indeed work well with the sad lyric and we can relate to your cry for the birds and the blooms. One of Janice’s sisters lives in the NC mountains and she is always ready for the return of her birds and blooms in the springtime. The synths worked well, the write was nice and you wrapped it all in a mix that sounds excellent on the Kalis. Well done! J&B PS We have five days of spring left and the temperature is 98 F.

bbman... england 1 serbia 0...so far...yay.. ive taken it as far as i can mate... 1.. was mainly focused on bar 14 with an example of triplets per your image. 2..if you want long held notes you can draw them in piano roll... and remember to leave bar blank in chords window. 3..for vibes...just use a plugin with the midi piano roll driving vibes setting....be carefull in piano roll top left to set to the right track so you see the notes in the piano roll mate. i think where the disconnect is that you want bb track generation to reflect your bar chord arrangement as you hear in your head... eg long held notes...but the only way to get what you want and hear what is in your head...im afraid in this song you will need to get down n dirty with the piano roll and enter the notes you wanr...so you take back control from bb generation. its very important that even tho you enter your chords a certain way in chord window it doesnt necessarily mean bb track generation will obey what you hear in your head mate. its the same with my songs...eg in my sig..out of 100 songs ive done in bb/rb ...they all needed some editing ...and moveing notes and bars n riffs around till i got what i heard in my head. heres a big tip for you...in rb is a nifty feature for midi tracks whereby... an example...lets say you liked that bar 14 and you want same triplets arrange in say bar 39 in rb BARS VIEW...you just copy n paste 14 to 39. all im saying mate is...sometimes you can get lucky with bb generating a track as per what you hear in your mind...just dont bank on it. if you want notes to be perfect as you hear in your head re arrangement ya gotta get into the piano roll...THEN have the piano roll drive a playable real track...this gives you control rather than bb. Bottom line...with this type of song i would get what i hear in my head useing piano roll and or a midi kbd...rather than relying bb to create tracks and making decisions. keep jazzin... om 🇨🇦🇨🇦 🇬🇧🇬🇧

Thanks again for helping muso! I got the file. smile Nice sparse piano playing. There's just a few problems though. I'm looking for vibes. I'm looking for long held notes with the vibes. And most importantly with this challenge, I'm looking for that micro chord triplet (E9,F9) (E9,F9). smile

We love the sax and the electric piano and that bass sounds good as it sits tonally and chop wise nicely in the mix. Your lead vocal is awesome as are the dreamy harmonies. The offering of a fine narrative with so few lines is the sign of a great write indeed. Sounds like a credit song playing at the end of a movie or series. You and Mike are a high bar team.

I don't fully understand what you are meaning. When you say "when using a random track to check everything is working, it records fine", what do you mean by "a random track".Could you please tell me which number is your "random track"? (Mixer tracks are numbered from the top down. This means that the Bass track is #1, the Audio track is #9, the Thru track is #8, etc.) Also, when you say, "when I switch to the track I'm actually working on", what track number is that one?
