I've been trying to load symphonic choir to play my midi file, but apparently when it starts to play. The pitch is not the one that i've originally written. The soprano voice is a 3rd higher than my original pitch, but the alto is fine. Why??????
And when i tried to load the whole SATB choir to play a single melody line, why do they automatically have their own harmony? I only want all the parts to play the same note!
How do i fix it? Or have i misunderstood the function of Symphonic Choir?
Depends on why you use it, how you use it, and what you expect from it:
You won't get Bach out of it, no matter what!
But for cinematic works, it's brilliant. For fake languages, etc, it's very much fun and easy to use! for other stuff it's very well made. But if you want a single phrase like "Eat at Jerry's" for example, it might take you 30 minutes, each voice, to sound right. Never mind a whole piece!
It sounds like a wordbuilder issue - check to make sure it is set to the proper voice (i.e., sopranos WB patch assigned to soprano Midi track run by Wordbuilder with the soprano configuration format). A dead giveaway (though not the only indicator of a problem) is if they aren't singing the right words, so solo them and listen. There is an off chance that you've written the part out of their range, but it's not likely. Just check the assignments, and see if that's where your problem is.
The thing is...i haven't even load the word builder along with it!
I've only load the symphonic choir itself in sonar and trying to get it play my midi track.
I've noticed that even when i play on the keyboard in the symphonic choir interface, the soprano doesn't sound right but a 3rd higher than what i'm playing. For example i play a C on the soprano interface and it'd come out sounding as an E!!!
Any one experience that problem?
Thanks a lot nikolas!! Yea it works fine with the soloist..
I've got another problem now, apparently when i'm copying the disk 9 part25.nks file into my harddisk, there's this error message saying the file cannot copy due to a I/O device error???
Anyone experienced that?
