Background music created from an app?

Post by jrech » Sat Aug 11, 2018 7:06 pm

I am looking for an app or apps on the iPad that allows you to put in s chord progression and it will generate an instrument playing background music to the chord progression you type in. It is like band in a box or garage band. You type in the chord progression and it will generate the music for you to insert in as background music. It will generate either a sound file you can insert in auria via audiobus or import the file in. It might generate a midi file that can be inserted in auria and an instrument is then picked in auria. Garage band is pretty cool but it only has 4 rhythms. It creates an audio file that you insert via audio share and it is nice. I am hoping there is another app that will create more and different tracks. All recommendations are greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I use iReal Pro for my jazz charts mostly, but it has a variety of styles. It allows you to control volume levels between instruments, export as a few audio file types, and create basically any chord progression you would like. You can also change keys easily. Might be worth looking into.

The SessionBand series of apps is also very useful for what you’re looking to do.

Thanks supernorton. got the sessionband piano. It is really cool too. Does it do midi files, and I am missing out how to do that. I put the .wav fil from audiobus into auria and it work without a problem. A midi file would be cool to select from one of the sound files in auria or a third party file. What other ones do you suggest in the sessionband apps?

I just picked up SessionBand also, Jazz Bundle. I really like the sounds. Any idea if there are any forums with a complete Real Book for jazz standards that can be imported like the iReal pro community has done?

I don’t do midi, so I have no idea. Sorry about that.

I bought just about all the SessionBand apps when they were on sale a while ago. I’m a rock and roller, so I like all those (rock, blues, piano, etc.). The ones with multiple instruments come with a mixer, so you can just use the instruments you need, which is nice.

I don’t recall any recent sales from them, so maybe there will be one soon. They have been updating them periodically.

Sorry, I have no idea about that. Please let us know if you find something.

I got all of the them. I like how it works and the drums and bass are sweet sounding. If you plug in the chord progressions on each app you can create cool background music in auria. A little work but it was cool to do that. I will find a way to convert audio to midi. I am sure there is a way to do that. Not a big deal.
