One by my favourite composer J.S. Bach:
Cantata "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" BWV 147
(matching the Easter season).
As a base I used Clasfake\Bach01 in BiaB.
The voices are Vocaloid Avanna and samples of my own voice.
The 3/4 measure and the many, many chord changes make it difficult
for the RT artists.
So at times I used up to 40 tracks, moving snippets around.
I ended up with 22 tracks in the final mix.

RealTracks:
RealDrums-JazzBrushesWaltz
RealDrums-2416Fusion
RT926_Bass, Acoustic, Jazz Waltz Sw 085
RT1433_Bass, Electric, JazzFunkGroovin Ev16 110
RT1435_Guitar, Electric, Rhythm JazzFunkGroovinChords Ev16 1
RT1437_Piano, Electric, Rhythm JazzFunkGroovin Ev16 110
RT1055_Sax, Alto, Soloist SmoothJazzCool Sw16 075 (Bluesy)

Guenter,

Cool. As always. I think Johann would have loved the screamin' sax. And would have loved having Brent around to "let it rip" now and again....

Great mix of "old and new".... always look forward to what you might do next...

But, hey... stay away from the Country stuff... there's enough competition there as it is.....

Hi Guenter,

For the first couple of minutes, to my ears, this was very "Swingle Singers" sounding (one of my all-time favourite groups). Then the sax came in. What a great segue! You've put this arrangement together with outstanding attention to detail. The whole presentation was excellent to listen to. It must have taken ages to assemble!

Regards,
Noel

Hi Guenter....great listen...thanks for posting. Very complex piece...using Vocaloid, samples and RT snippets...and so many tracks! You really know your way around the software!

Thanks Charlie, Floyd, Noel and MountainSide for your nice comments.

@Floyd: Yes, he would have written a well tempered Brent, I'm sure.
You can calm down: I won't do Country.

@Noel: I'm glad you are back to my "channel". Missed you on my last post.
That Swingle Singers tribute was deliberate. I used to listen to them a lot.
You are right: it took quite some time.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Hi Guenter,

This is of the largest-scale and most complex uses of RealTracks that I've ever seen. I take it that you used only your voice with the Vocaloid software. And out come those beautiful female voices in perfect tune? Mind blowing!

Hi Bob and Aleck,

thanks for your nice words.

@Aleck: The female voices are Avanna, mine are the male ones.
Avanna is Vocaloid, mine is DirctWave Sammpler.

Just got to this and man glad I did. I too would like to know where the female fills came from? Edited portion: Sorry I just read your original post after I listened to the production and you already answered.

Very enjoyable listen!

Me thinks you've mastered using vocaloid w/ BIAB... maybe we can convince Peter to consider including it and some vocal stubs in future releases of BIAB. Well done Guenter!@

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.
Fixed: Potential jukebox access violation if there were songs with the entire path of the filename being 256 characters or greater loaded into jukebox.
Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.
Fixed: When loading in a MusicXML file that has a specific guitar fretboard defined that matches one of our fretboards, the guitar tablature type will now be set for the notation.
Fixed: Ability to load in .MXL (compresssed musicXML file) as well as ability to load normal noncompressed musicXML file with the new .musicxml extension instead of just .XML.
Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.
Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.
