So as not to Hijack sosmus's listening room posting and I think this is an interesting topic on it's own I'm replying to Randy here.Originally Posted by rbowser-
I think it's a matter of the recording's use. If it's for a CD I would agree that a BIAB or other computer generated solo would not be a good choice. But I don't think a keyboard played or manually entered Sax, Trumpet etc solo would cut it either. You would probably want a solo played by live Brass or Reed player.
If the recording is for a mockup or to sell an arrangement I think a generated solo is fine. BIAB gives a fair amount of control over the generated solo allowing degrees of melody use, outside playing and soloist style. I know for me being a drummer I could not come close to BIAB's output playing a Sax solo on a keyboard. Also anything keyboard entered will require a lot of time tweaking that a mockup scenario probably wouldn't justify.
just my 2 cents
