OK, now I'm looking into using UserTracks to automate this process, at least for chord progressions:

1) BIAB: Export UserTrack template yadayadayada.sgu to MIDI
2) Logic: Import MIDI, invert, render to audio
3) BIAB: Use inverted audio file for UserTrack audio file yadayadayada.wav

========

TEST RESULTS SO FAR:

Tracky McTrackface, a UserTrack template played with a cheesy MIDI style

Tracky McTrackface transformed, using inversion UserTrack

Does Logic have a better synth to use for the render to audio portion?
Do you have hardware synths available?
The Invert part could be fun, but the generated sounds could be better IMHO
Once you import MIDI and Invert it, can you save it off to use in another program as a basic MIDI file (.mid)?

Oh, God, I certainly hope I could make something sound better than this! Sorry, I should have been more explicit that I wasn't going for musical goodness yet, this grunge is barely tolerable for human consumption. I have heard this inversion thing work with the right material, but this is clearly not that.

Here, I was mainly concerned with getting every note on every track within the playable range of some instrument, since the inversion process swings notes around. I just wanted to be able to hear if I was doing what I'm trying to do, in terms of how UserTracks work.

Sorry the sample was so long. =8^)

If anyone's still here, this is the result of inverting "You Won't See Me" then feeding it into BIAB for chordal analysis and jazzification:

Just a BIAB fingerpicked guitar with EastWest voices.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
