any Chapman stick tracks how to? - 11/17/19 10:06 AM

It's been about 3+years away from biab and need to relearn some stuff like user tracks.
For those who have heard the Chapman stick being played, it's quite an amazing instrument.Has anyone tried to make a user track?
The next thing, is it possible to take an audio recordings, such as instrumental songs(Chapman Stick) and derive enough chord info to create a user track of any quality?
My last biab version is 2017, is there any changes in user tracks in 2019?
Thanks Wyndham

I could make one up but what do you want it to play ?
Just remove the .mp4 extension, you may need to "show file extensions" in Explorer.

Wyndham,

Download the file to your computer desktop screen. Once the file is downloaded there's two things you need to do, rename the file and decompress the file. The steps are below.

Rename the file:

Click on the file one time. The file icon and name will be highlighted but did not open.

Press F2. That is a shortcut to the rename file command. A window opens around the filename and the filename is highlighted.

Use the right arrow key to remove the filename highlight and move the cursor to the right side of the 4 in the mp4 part of the filename.

Press the backspace key four (4) times so it deletes the "4", "p", "m" and "." from the filename.

Press "Enter". The filename should now be "Chapman_Stick_SFZ.zip".

Here's how you decompress the file.

Click on the file 1 time to highlight the file.

Right click on the file to open a submenu window.

Select the "Extract All ..." command.

Press the "Extract" button.

The decompressed UserTrack folder will be created on your desktop.
