#369001 - 10/07/16 11:15 AM [UserTracks (and other add-ons)] Does a contemporary jazz soloist template exist?

Apologies if this is common knowledge, but I've never had the time to research UserTracks creation very much. Some posts today got me interested.

For a UserTrack of jazz flugelhorn soloing to be useful to me and perhaps others, I think I would have to make a template of a BIAB song that would best have me record over almost all possible changes and keys. With extensions like b9, #9, 11, 13 and Alt chords and their combinations, in progressions, this would be a pretty long song, wouldn't it? I wouldn't want my style defaulting to playing major, minor, sus, augmented and diminished chords only, but instead get into the upper extensions and modes.

If my assumption is correct, has anyone made such a song template?

Thanks.

OK, after doing some research and receiving some wonderful tips from Frank (Seeker), I think what I need is a jazz version of this supplied Pop music template:

Pop UserTracks 30 minute template.zip

More detail: In the PG Music tutorial http://www.pgmusic.com/usertracks1.htm they have a Pop 1 minute and a Jazz 1 minute. But for the 10, 20 and 30 minute templates, there is only one for Pop, not for Jazz. The 30-minute Pop template says it has some jazz chords, but I need more extensions (even if the template has to be longer).

Is this a Wishlist item?

Thanks.

You have a good ear Matt, you can chord out a RealTrack Jazz Soloist to create a template:

This is a very interesting discussion. I think the key to a Soloist RT is the link between a certain phrase and the underlying chord. I've heard some RT Soloists play basic pentatonic phrases over all kinds of complex extensions. Other times there will be something like a Gb9#5 chord and all the soloist does is play one note until the next chord change so obviously there is nothing there that encompasses that chord. This is just an observation, I have no idea how that chord/soloist link actually works.

Many of the midi soloists are much better than the RT soloists except of course for the overall sound quality and live nuances that's missing from midi. But as far as actual notes are concerned the midi soloists really do follow the changes better than the RT soloists do.

I think the reason for that is the file size limitation of the RT's. The RT artist would have to play so many different variations that the file size would be too big while midi can keep scrambling and creating note phrases almost endlessly. I say I think because it's just a guess.

RapidComposerLE is great for fitting midi anywhere you like.
It will read the chords from BB Chord Output midi and give you the same chord sheet as BB.

I can see a use for that, Pipeline, thanks.

Bob, I believe you understand what I'm asking; the soloist who vamps on a whole note because that particular chord extension wasn't in the song used as a template. I think you are correct based on an early experience I had with RealTracks: I discovered that one piano part didn't know what a minorMajor7 chord was, so every time I wrote that chord, the piano stopped playing for that measure. After I reported it to PG Music, they released a patch and it was fixed. It could have been miscoded, or maybe there really wasn't a recording snippet of that chord type - we don't know.

This is why I originally asked about the need for a jazz template song with all the chord types.

I love reading what the smart folk post! I have avoided some chords because of what the soloist played. Great Post

Matt,

I'm wondering, what if you found a style you believe could be enhanced with a jazz flugelhorn solo and identified the RealTracks used in the style.

Then you could take one of the Realtracks and run ALL the wave files through the Audio Chord Wizard. The Audio Chord Wizard can "build" the chord sheet or at least help you determine what chords that RealTracks instrument provides.

Once you have a chord sheet you can more easily determine what solo is appropriate.

Thanks, Jim. This is one of many things that fell way down on my to-do list. Perhaps next year.

For making Jazz User Tracks, please do create a far more complex set of chords. I fell in love with BIAB because it had such a strong emphasis on jazz, salsa, blues, etc. However, making a user track is meaningless, unless the "training" template contains the many variations that you'd find in, e.g. the Jazz Real Books. Without a 9th, maj9th, flatted 9th, etc, one can't really create a useful jazz user track.

Since there's even an excellent video on making your own user tracks, a user gets a sudden disappointment when trying to do so. Since it makes sense to have this done in the same way the Pop User Track Templates were done, please DO get to this (I invested the $1k, & keep it up to date each year). It would make NO sense for each user to create their own TEMPLATE files, since each person who wants to use this feature for Jazz will re-invent the wheel!

The quality of BIAB is now rather impressive; please keep it moving to a better & better product!

A great first post and welcome to the forum.

This request might also get better attention in the Wishlist section of the forums.

Thanks, I posted a very similar item about adding Jazz-specific User Track templates to the User Track Wishlist area. Is this the area you meant? Are there any user-created Jazz User Track Training templates posted elsewhere?

You just need someone with a good ear to load each track from a realtrack jazz instrument into RealBand or Biab then chord each one out and save them as Jazz UserTrack Templates.

You can make the UserTracks soloist in particular scales by using "Drum" in the name. Then when Bar 2 Bar regen is added (maybe this year) and change UserTrack at any bar with F5 things will be easy.
You can have a lot a separate SGUs this way it will be more random and not playing the next lot of bars in the one SGU but choosing from the other SGUs.
Any phrases can be kept together in the UserTrack bar settings.
You can set any parts as A,B fill, post fill, ending.

Now with Melodyne 5 it will get the chords and scales, the chords can be exported as midi > Lead Sheet
So you can scale and chord out the RealTracks to make a UserTrack template.

Thanks for reviving this thread, Pipeline. It’s amazing this goes back four years. Also you mention Melodyne 5, and I just upgraded.

If I’m reading your ideas correctly, you are proposing to create the jazz template by extracting chords from RealTracks. I wouldn’t have any trouble transcribing chords that are played but I’m not sure how that helps here. My assumption is that UserTracks must be created in a certain way for them to be useable by BIAB and I don’t know how to set that up with complex chords.

That's all set in the F5 UserTracks Development, if you can chord and key it out, record it, then go into the settings.
It helps if you have the file in RealBand or you DAW with a 2 bar offset for the count-in so the bar numbers line up, then you can play it while setting the F5 UserTracks settings in Biab.
So if a riff you want Biab to play starts on 9 and ends on 12 you can
Don’t start a new Riff on this bar 10-12,

If you want you can add them to
Only choose this bar if the key matches 9-12
and/or
Only play this for a post fill 9-12

Material in A or B part markers should play in their section.
Remember to hit the Update as you go.

The more playing you have the better as it's less likely to over transpose things, there are 12key RealTrack but it depends how keen you are.
You just need to experiment with it and if you are happy with the results use it or upload it.

-------------------------------------
UserTrack Settings F5

Bar # and Chorus # indicate the current song location. This is the bar where the settings will be applied, but you can apply them to a range of bars if you enter a list (3,5,7) and/or range (10-20, 25-28) of bars, separated by commas, in the edit control box under Enter a Range of Bars.

Press the [Update] button to save the settings.

Don’t include this bar in the UserTracks excludes the current bar (or range of bars, if set) from the UserTracks and will never be used.

Ending starts on this bar (4 bar ending) sets the current bar as the first bar of the 4 bar ending.

Don’t start a new Riff on this bar
prevents the current bar from being used as the start of a new riff. This is useful if the bar has sustained notes carried over from the previous bar and no new attack of a note.

Don’t End a Riff at the start of this bar means that the current bar (or list of bars in the edit control) will not be used to end a riff at the start of the bar. This is useful if the previous bar doesn’t have a defined ending for a riff.

Only choose this bar if the key matches allows the bar to be used only if the user’s song key matches the key of this song. So, if this is the IV chord, it would only get chosen if it will be the IV chord in the user’s song.

This bar is simple sets the bar to use simple riffs.

Only Play this for a fill sets the current bar as a fill, which will only be played where the user’s song is also a fill.

Only play this for a post fill (after a fill) sets the current bar (or list of bars in the edit control) to only play after a fill in the user’s song.

Odd/Even must match sets the current bar to play in the user’s song only if the odd/even status (bars after a part marker) matches the user’s song.

Always play this bar if it matches means that the current bar (or list of bars) will always get played, as long as its chord and other settings are compatible. It overrides any other riffs that match.

Once is enough (don’t repeat this) sets the bar to only be played once in a song. Use for an unusual riff that you don’t want repeated.

Bar/Beat Markers
You can set the location of the bar or beat markers if the riff doesn’t start on the bar or beat. You can set the location in ms offset, and also set the riff marker type, begin and/or end. The offsets can be set visually in the Audio Edit window.

I’m still a newbie and have never tried to create a UserTrack. But have some ideas for tracks, so going to ask a possibly naive question. Does BiaB care whether a Usertrack was created from the jazz template versus the pop template? Why not just create one use the most complex 30 minute Pop template with the extra chords?

Another question - can a UserTrack be created in 3/4 time?

You can do a 90min one if you like, the more material/chords/variety the better.
Yes it will do 3/4 now, seems to work good.

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
