Swing doesn't affect eight notes as such but changes the meter of the bar. Any note longer than a sixteenth that falls on the 'and' is delayed. Typically, this happens with eights but it can also happen to quarters which start on the 'and'. Same for dotted quarters. Sixteenth (or shorter) are exceptions: they remain straight and are never swung (when eights ...
With regard to your second question: Whenever you pair a digital piano keyboard with a virtual instrument on a computer, you have to calibrate both the digital piano and the virtual instrument by adjusting velocity curves on the keyboard, and the virtual instrument. Your digital piano and most virtual instruments have programming facility for this. Careful ...
The folk musicians I deal with tend to use ABC Notation which is free and has software to convert to PDF. Additionally, when you get familiar with ABC, you can write tunes in raw ABC notation.
Several people advise MusicXML here but I don't see that making sense. That is an exchange format, not a format to write music in. In practice, MusicXML export/import works rather tepidly between different applications. I've seen "TuxGuitar" mentioned but the name would strongly suggest a focus on guitar I don't see in question or tags. LilyPond is a ...
MusicXML seems to be what you’re looking for here. It is imported and exported by many softwares, including Sibelius, Finale and MuseScore (which is free software). It is, however, more of an exchange format. I’m not sure any of these software can work directly on the format, and some information might be lost when importing or exporting.
The format of choice is MusicXML, which is understood by nearly every program. My favorite program is lilypond which creates really nice scores, is free and multi-plattform but being a music programming language without any GUI, fails in respect to ease-of-use. There are some frontends for it, as can be seen here, but I have no experience with them.
Use TuxGuitar, it fulfills many of your requirements take a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TuxGuitar Not just for guitar, it also supports MIDI, openSource!!!.
Currently I own a Line 6 Pod X3 Live and I owned a Pod XT before that. Over the last 8-10 years I used both of them extensively, both for recording and on stage. Although X3 is supposed to have a higher sampling rate, I can't tell the difference between XT and X3 (other than the fact that X3 can process two channels at once). I never did an A/B test but ...
The Line 6 hardware devices have essentially^* the same software models as the Pod Farm software, provided that you are comparing versions of the same generation. There should be no difference in the digital modeling between them running on your PC vs. running the Line 6 dedicated hardware; however the Line 6 software has evolved over time, so if you're ...
I think this all might get a bit subjective, but in theory, Pod Farm is the same as a hardware Pod; the main difference being possibly the apparent latency [the time between you hitting a note & actually hearing it] which may be much lower in a hardware device. I have used an old hardware Pod2 extensively, & also Guitar Rig [from v1 through v5] ...
You can double click the pitch fader to reset it to 0. You can also assign the pitch fader reset action to a key in your keyboard or a control surface. 1) Preferences -> Control Manager -> Add in... -> Tempo -> Tempo Fader 2) Select the new created controller, and in interaction mode select "reset". In assignment select which deck you want to tempo fader ...
learn about beatmapping and the beatmapper wizard in SONY ACID Studio..works great for me! Stretch and fold your drum tracks to match the metronome and presto you can record other tracks onto it with ease!
Yes, it is possible to audio quantize in Reaper and all popular DAWs. In general you'll find two different approaches to audio quantize (or a combination of): with or without time stretching. The best results will depend in the material you are modifying. Without time stretching (which is nothing more than cutting a piece of audio and putting it somewhere ...
I suggest doing it by means of Finale and Sibelius. Also Musescore is useful, but... If You're not acquainted with the programs, You may and will have troubles with any of them. This is why, You shouldn't do't by Yourself, just order scores and get it back in PDF, print them and play flute or else. I suggest this service: ...
SmartMusic, firm the same company that makes Finale.
You can use any synth that will let you work with frequencies instead of notes, like Absynth. You can assign specific frequencies to each oscillator, and/or assign specific frequencies to each MIDI note/key. You can use it with the host of your choice (DAW, tracker, external recorder, whatever). For more flexibility you might want to look into audio ...
Home Concert Xtreme (that's the official spelling) is probably the best for that.
I'm not sure what level you're at, and so what difficulty of sight reading you want to practise, but I use this iPad/iPhone app with some of my guitar pupils (they find it great fun!): https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/my-note-games/id470503027?mt=8 It's quite clever, as it is like a combination of a sight reading app and a tuner, as it listens to you ...
