Hello,
I´m trying to write a samba guitar style – this is a test: drums (RealDrums) and a guitar midi playing chords from one of my songs. I´d appreciate your comments on this samba guitar style. Thanks.

Both tracks recorded by Band-in-a-box.
• ****** Song Summary *************
• Title: Luz de Vela(Candle light)
• Key=C , Tempo 203, Length (m:s)=1:29

• Song is saved with Volume, Pan, Reverb, Chorus, Bank0,
• Style is IVS01!.STY ()
• GuitarCustom Synth is ViEq2.tgs
• Style MIDI Instruments are : < No Patch Change > (0),
• Audio files were exported to Audacity where “Normalize” and “Compression” effects were applied.

Ivan

It seems you've just let BiaB do all the work. The chord structure follows fine, but I am not hearing any specific melody or enhancement offered by anything other than BiaB

Don't let that be a negative, maybe it's your intention to now enhance with your own features. If so, you're heading in the right direction.

Hi Ivan,
Everything was fine but you need to add a melody line with your experiment next time so that we can give you a better assessment of what you are trying to accomplish.

VideoTrack,
Thanks for your reply.

The work I did in this song was to write a Biab style that plays a samba guitar.

Besides that, it´s like you´re pointing - BiaB did its work - and played the guitar using a style I wrote.

I certainly didn´t make it clear enough- this song is a test for the quality of the style I wrote and how BiaB sounds when playing the guitar chords in that style - and finally, how it sounds as a Samba style.

Regards,

Great! Like I said, you're heading in the right direction.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
