On 08/05/2013 Noel wrote: "I bet you could make Mozart sing!"
Although I'm not that Mozart fan I thought I could give it a try. I chose the Aria of the Queen of the Night from The Magic Flute.
For the vocals I used Vocaloid Avanna and added four harmonies.
First I tried the German lyrics. But that didn't sound good, so I used that Scat version.
The RTs are
RealDrums-JazzTerryClarke^03-Ride,RideLd
RT443_ Bass, Acoustic, Jazz Sw 140
RT449_ Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm Jazz Sw 140
RT1048_Organ, B3, Rhythm Jazz Sw 140
As I couldn't find a soloist (I tried several trumpets, saxes and trombones) that fitted my imagination, I did the solo and fills myself.

For the ones who like to compare with the original here is a link: : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9C-K4VisOA
(Floyd, for not being scared you should listen to my version first).
I hope Mozart won't rotate in his grave.

Guenther,

I think he is at minimum restless.

Really enjoyed this. Noting your keyboard in the Avatar.
Are you triggering Anna with it?

With the outrageous amount of samples purchased these last few weeks,
have maybe 100 pieces of words(choir types).
There is not enough time in the day to set them up.

Really admire the amount of work and results your have attained.

Thanks for sharing you time consuming hard work and music.

Guenter,

Love the music.

Your creativity is always entertaining.

On the vocaloid - you got those chicks grooving.

Guenter,

LOL! I ain't sceeerd! (oh... that's "hick" for "I'm not scared")
(unless I hear banjo music in the woods...)

SUPER COOL! The Avanna-ettes have it goin' on!!

The mix is so tight, it is impossible to tell what is RealTracks and what is Guenter.

The first half felt like it should be background for a major automobile commercial. The second half felt like a Christmas sung that should play as you shop a major department store...

OK... just watched (listened to) the video. I THOUROUGHLY enjoyed it! It is one of the finest examples of the human voice I have ever heard.

OK...

Ohmygod!!!!! Spent time flipping back and forth doing small segments of both. Guenter, you are COMPLETELY AMAZING. I got chills!

WOW! Bravo! Bravo! Bravo! WOW! WOW!

For a guy who doesn't like Mozart... you shure done good (<< more hick talk)

floyd

Hey Guenter!

Wow!!! That took me by surprise.

What you have done is fantastic! The production is seamless. As Floyd has said, it's impossible to tell what parts were yours and what were generated by BIAB/RB.

These days, when I listen to your music, I simply lean back in my chair, close my eyes and enjoy. Your musical inventiveness always leaves me thinking "I wish I knew how to do that". It's incredible where creativity takes you.

More please!!!!
Noel

P.S. Thank you for the Youtube link, the soprano is brilliant. What a range!!!!!

Hi Dani, Frank, Josie, Alyn, Floyd and Noel,

thanks for your kind words. They mean a lot to me.

@Dani: Didn't you make yourself a little bit too young?

@Frank: Avanna is not really triggered. It imports MIDI files.

@Floyd: You shouldn't always debase yourself. You're not a hick. (A word which I only learned yesterday).

Guenter

Guenter,

in my opinion you are unquestionably the most innovative contributor to this forum! Somehow you manage to intermingle the past present and future into a completely new sound! And here you have done it again!

If you had to name your new genre, what would you call it?

Your songs remind me of a room that is painted in neutral colors so wild accents can be used without clashing. The structure of your base classical tune serves to hold the composition together, giving it the stability needed to take risks with eclectic "other musical paradigms" such as Avanna or the many instruments usually associated with genres outside the realm of classical music.

And you do it SO WELL!! I can easily imagine a project of this scope failing miserably due to all the things that must go right at the same time... but so far, NONE of your compositions has been less than excellent!

Thanks for sharing your creativity with the rest of us

Hi Pat,

thanks for your comments.
As Floys said, they are like lyrics sometimes.
A name for the genre? I leave it up to you. You are
much more inventive in things like that.

Guenter

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
