I looked at all five last night and believe the series is a great introduction to RealBand; especially for someone slightly familar with BIAB but has not taken the opportunity to work with RealBand.

I believe the videos will greatly reduce the amount of time needed to feel comfortable using RealBand.

Great job Blake!

Thanks for posting that keyboard graphic Pat. A good easy to use reference map that I'll add to my notes file.

I've just started to look at Realband in a serious way. Found these new videos really helpful. Although as a beginner I need lots and lots more videos! smile

Great job Blake!

Jim, you are describing me. After 14 years, I'm only now trying to learn and use RB but I'm totally lost.

I have a nice audio (.wma) file of a great piano solo. I want to add drums and strings. Unfortunately, these tutorials are not much help in this instance. Can you or other experienced RB users get me started in the right direction please?

I also have watched the 5 tutorials and agree that Blake did a fabulous job. They just don't answer my intermediate-level question.

Thanks.

Don's quote: "I have a nice audio (.wma) file of a great piano solo. I want to add drums and strings. Unfortunately, these tutorials are not much help in this instance. Can you or other experienced RB users get me started in the right direction please?"

Don, in RB, the sequence to add the audio file and then add additional instruments is as follows:

Import your wma file into RB
Open the Audio Chord Wizard,
Choose existing song (which is your audio wma piano file)
Run ACW to determine key, create a tempo map and input the chord progression into the CF page of RB.

Choose a blank track to begin adding RealTracks, Midi, Super Midi or live vocals or instruments.

Be Careful!! it quickly becomes addictive.

Wtched all 5 of these tonight and got a little more d\familar eith RT. Tanks for providing these. We do need more on Real Band and it is much different than BIAB. It appears that the use of RB is going to expand the utility of BIAB greatly!

Realband elevates BIAB to a higher level. For me, it is where music production begins and BIAB accompaniment ends. It is where I take over from the auto generated BIAB tracks and create unique and custom audio tracks. It is where BIAB begins to react as if I were truly playing live in a studio with real musicians.

For example, I recently punched in a guitar track for fills and solo breaks. The track was comped into 18 sections. Using the multiriff feature of RB, each of the 18 sections received 7 alternate takes per section and I chose one of the multi riffs. On occasion, I cut/pasted between two multi riffs merging into a single new riff. That was 126 unique phrases for my song. It was like sitting in a studio with a lead guitar player and directing him throughout the song so it was my unique, custom arrangement.

This is important to me because using BIAB, consider that 10 users choose the same style and the same chord progression for a song. Relying on BIAB auto generated songs from finite recorded audio tracks, there would likely be similar, recognizable phrases between the different users songs. That would not be the case generating multi riffs in a RB track.

Generating such a track took minutes to create and is something no other DAW is capable of in such a short period of time. One would have to generate multiple tracks and export each of them into a DAW and entire tracks would have to be referenced against each other to come even close to what RB did in minutes.

RB is where the human artistry resides.

Charlie

I think you'll find it worthwhile and fun to use. It's also useful to me when working on covers of songs and getting the arrangement just right.

I've been impressed by these videos. All quite interesting. The playback of recorded mix levels should be very useful for backing tracks.
