keyboardinator Posted April 29, 2004 Share Posted April 29, 2004 I have a performing combo and I need a drummer and bass player but I don't want to audition for them! I want to use my laptop to create virtual band members without having to sacrifice flexibility and real-time performance spontaneity. [it would be nice to throw in some horn and string accompaniment on certain songs as well] Im researching software that is controllable from my keyboard to randomly select songs and repeat/extend leads, verses, choruses, etc. without having to touch my laptop. So Ive been evaluating Ableton Live since it seems best suited for live performance. I've also looked at Band in a Box since it looks good for composing and creating vocal harmonies and MIDI instrumental arrangements. However, I haven't determined if these 2 packages are complimentary and/or compatible. I.e. can I easily import files I create in BIAB to Live and manipulate them flexibly? I'm also still wondering if there are better (or additional) software choices for what I want to do. So far Im using a Roland A-90 expandable controller keyboard and a Windows laptop. music, the ulitmate vehicle Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
