OK, this is my first proper attempt for recording a full track with Band in a Box.
I used the melody creator to do the whole track.
I replaced the bass, drums and guitar with real tracks and drums and added a Sax Solo.
I exported the midi tracks into Sonar and replaced the melody with a sparkly piano sound and the electric piano with an acoustic.
I imported the real track/drums into sonar and applied compression and other processing bits and bobs.
I actually imported two real bass tracks. As you'll hear, there's a slap bass section during the Sax solo.
Before saving the real tracks/drums as wave files, I removed any reverb, put their volumes up to full and centered them all so that I could control their level and panning from within Sonar.
It's still a little bit messy mix wise, but I think it could work up into something worth listening to.http://soundcloud.com/the-karmistry-project/finding-the-setting-sun
If you explore my Soundcloud page, you'll see that this isn't my usual style at all.
My aim for BIAB and Real Tracks is to produce Royalty Free music.
Interested in your comments.
