Take a look at this demo. (Use 'View Page Source' in your browser to look at the code). http://saebekassebil.github.io/teoria/ As a javascript library intended for use in the browser, there would be a bit of work to do to couple it up with pure audio, but I'm sure there are APIs and libraries around that would help. It is certainly fast enough for real ...

Automation is a feature available in most digital audio workstations and many types of similar audio production software. Automation allows a parameter like volume, pan, or mute to be changed automatically during playback of a song by the software. In the early years of multi-track mixing, engineers had to manually move faders, and turn knobs while ...

I'd just like to emphasise (for those that are still confused by this layout) just how the voices work and interleave with each other. Following is the bar re-created with MuseScore with each of the voices in a different colour - Blue (primary), Green (Secondary) and Gold (Tertiary). The same colours are duplicated in the guitar tabulature to emphasise how ...

This is a pretty strange measure of music, I will grant you that. I would have notated this differently, but it is playable if you can decipher it. The notes in the middle voice should be written as single eighth notes and tied eighth notes. "Staggering" the three syncopated notes in the middle voice by writing them as quarter notes is against the ...

There are 3 separate voices. Voice 1 is the high D-F#-A-G, voice 2 is the middle [eighth rest]-D-A-E-A, and voice 3 is the half notes.

Years ago I played around with a language called KeyKit. It represents music as phrase objects and has concepts of notes, chords plus a ton of functions for manipulating and generating music both via coding and by using built-in, simplified graphical controllers. I think that the language is fairly simple to learn. I think the guy that created it still ...

If you have a hardware instrument with quarter-tone support, you can certainly record audio from it into Garageband. However, none of the virtual instruments in Garageband will support quarter-tones played from a MIDI controller. But within Garageband, you can use any virtual instrument that uses the AU (Apple Audio Unit) protocol. If you can find a ...

I use Guitar Rig with ASIO4All and have noticed it locks the sound to itself. I can not play any other audio while GuitarRig or Amplitube (which both uses the ASIO driver). You can open a sound file with Guitar Rig's player and play songs and backtracks that way.

You want Band-in-a-Box. It is extremely rich and powerful for generating accompaniment tracks. If you are on Android tablet, iPad or iPhone or Mac OS X, there is also iReal Pro. It is very simple to use, but its results are not as good as those created by Band-in-a-Box. iReal Pro also has thousands of song charts of jazz and pop standards available for ...

I don't recommend compressing, unless you are doing a full production. The problem with compression is that it squishes the transients in the recording, these transients are natural and make your recordings sound more organic. If you are unsure about what a transient is, it's basically a spike at the beginning of the waveform, so when you play a note right ...

There's lots of material online, go looking for it. There's also a lot of good books on recording technique. It's worth spending a bit of time with a book on the subject before you put it in to action. I would focus on equipment, mic placement etc. more than adding effects. There's a phrase amongst technicians that you can't polish a turd. If you want a ...

A quick-and-dirty method might be to use a noise gate. Reverb is often much quiter tha the voice itself so you could apply a noise gate to the track and set the threshold to be as low as possible such that it captures only the voice. If you're not familiar with a noise gate, it's a device (software or physical) which silences output if the signal is less ...
