Default Musicians/Drummers Wanted for ReaTrak Studio

https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=212645


ReaTrak Studio allows users/artist/session musicians to produce,
upload and share their instrument and percussion tracks.
ReaTrak uses Reaper's Region Track as your Chord Track, it fits chords or drum sections
from the recorded source material. The source tracks can be recorded to from templates
covering many different chords and keys or the musicians can create their own keys
progression to record to, the more material the better, either way ReaTrak will search the
selected key recording and fit the played chord/scale to your chord track.

Hi Musobob !

I'm "only" interested in the Chord Track concept, where you have a Chord Track and then all MIDI Items on MIDI Tracks confirm to the Chords in the Chord Track.
Just like in Cubase.
(I am not interested in the collaboration features in ReaTrak).
Is this possible in Reatrak ?
And if so, maybe you could do a video about how to do that in Reatrak ?

Thanks and Warm Regards!

Yes you can produce some ReaTraks and sell them as a download, or have a donation link.

Did you look at the snap midi to chords video above ?
I was about to add a transpose midi items script, so that would not be a problem.

For the lead sheet
https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=197351#37

It will also "Create Text Chord Track", this will copy the region chords as text items on a new track.

So cool!

However, it doesn't really work when it comes to transposing a song, or printing out a chart, right?

It would be amazing if there was some way to:

- have the notes "transpose" with a certain midi track. Have a progression in your notes of

Amaj7, G#m m6, Emaj7, C#min9?

select the chord track and the midi(s) - transpose up by a semitone, and the chords in the notes become

Bbmaj7 (or even A#maj7, anything), Am m6, Fmaj7, Dmin9

obviously this is out of the scope of what we have.

Would be cool as well to have a print out of a chart, which you would make regions or something, to show an "A, B, C, or D" section, and then map out an arrangement and print out a chart. That's obviously out of the scope, too - but it would be neat.

I am loving the ability to have the chords displayed for my own practice (especially when dealing with keyboard chords), and would be even cooler if someone could write a script to detect midi chords and just have them dynamically display in the notes or notes reader type screen

Download latest ReaTrak here https://forums.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=212645

Here's a basic recording template A-Test-Record-play-anywhere&verse-chorus_regions_markers.zip
it's in A but you can select all the chords with time selection and click "Transpose Chord Selection" to change it to the next key to record to.
I made one a verse and chorus you record record in the style for verse and chorus the other is red play anywhere so it will fit the same style you recorded over all different song section colors,
it has an ending for verse and chorus.
You can change it to any progression you like, just try and cover the basic chords.

These are only basic for you to try, you can create more advanced ones with fills so whatever you play in the fill will be matched, you can also link sections with -L1 -L2 -L3 etc. this will match these section to the user's progression. You can create more variety of endings, you can play some pickup/intro notes in the count-in(s).

You can create a backing to record to by selecting some drums and bass from the
https://www.reatrak.com/downloads/test_files/
If you create up a backing track to record to and you are using the red play anywhere template
just change it to the verse color first so it fits the backing track instruments, then when you save the play anywhere region chord csv for the wav change all the regions to red pay anywhere color except pink count-in and verse and chorus endings, this is done by clicking the color song section or "Play Anywhere" button, it will then move to the next region so it's quick to do.


If you record DI Direct Input you will get better results without the sustain bleeding into the next bar, FX can be added after it has been fitted to the user's chord progression.

Save the regions.csv in the region manager or "Export\Renumber Chords" button (this will also snap chords to the grid in case they are out) and rename to same name as the recorded wav.
Put your instrument tracks in a folder with name format eg.
X:\ReaTrak Instruments\Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Classic Rock 01 Ev8 4-4 120bpm
Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Classic Rock 01 Ev8 4-4 120bpm C-Am.csv
Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Classic Rock 01 Ev8 4-4 120bpm C-Am.wav

You need this in the name format:

4-4 is time signature
120bpm is tempo
C-Am is Key

To try them out
enter your chord progression and color the regions for the song part,
select all regions with the time selection,
click Choose Instrument button and choose the wav you recorded,
click ReaTrak Selection,
it should fit the instrument to your chords.
If it's all good you can upload and share/collab.
