that's really nice.   The snare drum and the metal bar strikes stand out.  I like the volume swells and brass in the first.  Kindof cool in the later part how it transitions and the high flute part comes in.  Thought it sounded very good.

In Topic: Q: composition editor - midi piano roll step write mouse input?

I worked with a guitarist that had MIDI pick ups set up on his guitar. He said it wasn't perfect but since he wasn't a pianist, it worked much better and faster for him. Just a thought. I also have an guitar with MIDI ports.


I have a You Rock guitar and if I concentrate it's actually pretty good for midi input.  It's not fun like playing a regular guitar - really have to concentrate - but it's way better than my keyboarding skills.   The people that use the midi guitars like the You Rock or the Yamaha in the demos make them look easier to play than they are imho.  It's a different animal to learn to play. 


My problem up to now has been a midi software that I can get anything useful done in that doesn't grind me down.  I'm a little technologically challenged - alot of the tech and software baffles me.   I don't understand why some of this stuff is so hard to learn to use / or get to work as it should.

#1 (partially) and #2 are covered by FLStudio's very powerful Piano Roll. The feature you want is called (by the makers of FL no less) 'Ghost Notes'.


Kryzon,  thanks for your comment and explanation.  It sounds like FL is may be the way to go for this type of functionality.  I honestly hate the thought of dealing with yet another DAW - I find it hard to even keep track of what I have now - but it sounds like this is almost exactly what I'm looking for.  I will definitely have to check it out - especially if the basic version has the features.


thank you again for responding. it is appreciated.  sounds like it could make midi composition fun again!

Hi,  I'm very interested in trying out your project (I'm learning python right now with designs on doing some simple code either emulated/learned composition or genetic algorithm type approach) but I'm unable to login via the account button as described in the tutorials.  There's no button there presently from what I can see.


If there's a way I can test/mess around with the music generation app on the website I'd love to do so.  thanks,

oh lawdy, this topic has created a spiral effect of discussion. I did not think it would spawn this much attention! smile.png


this is a really good thread...  but on the subject of money - I'm still curious what a small indie project budgets for the music (or music/fx/voice etc -  all encompassing?)  I'm curious if you'd be willing to share the budget you have in mind - or if you could share the budget range of other game producers who are in your shoes (without naming them of coursesmile.png    )
