Como faço para gravar acordes e melodia simultâneamente no keyboard? Eu só consigo fazer isto separadamente.

Você quer gravar os acordes num canal e a melodia em outro ao mesmo tempo, é isso?

Exatamente, contudo utilizando o teclado musical. Vamos dizer diferente, quando eu gravo em disquete, consigo fazer a gravação em MIDI e depois jogar ao computador já com acompanhamento mais instrumentos separados por pistas.Gostaria de utilizar os rítmos do Band(pois são exelentes).Tocar toda a música, aproveitando os acordes de acompanhamento do Band, mas não consigo fazer que o Band reconheça os acordes de acompanhamento, ele reconhece como se fossem da melodia e joga os acordes para a voz de melodia e não dos acompanhamentos com seria o Baixo, guitarra e piano.
Explicando melhor... Eu só consigo utilizar o acompanhamento do inserindo-os manualmente pelo teclado do computador um a um conforme a melodia (isto é perda de tempo se já sei tocar a musica inteira no telado musical). Então refaço a pergunta, como tocar no telcado musical toda a música de tal forma que o Band reconheça acordes( de acompanhamento) utilizando os ritmos mais baixo piano e guitarra do Band mais melodia em pistas separadas?

Olá, primeiro peço desculpas pela demora, minha internet estava com problemas.
Olha, pelo que você me disse, está querendo que o BB faça a tarefa que normalmente é assinalada a um teclado sequenciador. Ele não possui esta função de separar o teclado em duas regiões para reconhecimento de acordes e melodia, pois isto é algo que depende do tipo de teclado que você está usando. Neste caso há três opções: 1- Você pega um teclado sequenciador que possua esta função e grava da forma que deseja. 2- Insere manualmente os acordes da sua música no BB digitando, o que deve demorar poucos minutos. Daí o BB faz o resto por você com os estilos e embelezamentos. 3- Desabilita os estilos, grava os acordes separadamente da melodia, e usa a função Interpretar Acordes do BB, que irá detectar automaticamente os acordes que você tocou.
Espero que tenha esclarecido a dúvida.
Um abraço,

Esta ai uma boa dica para uma próxima atualização ou versão do Band. Fazer tudo automaticamente enquanto se estiver tocando. Basta localizar um divisor de teclado musical no Band para ele identificar a mão esquerda como acorde e a mão direita como melodia, (como já acontece nos teclados arranjadores). Muito obrigado por tirar a minha dúvida. Abraço.

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!
