What do you think about LIONSTRACS QRANGER?
AUDIO ELASTIQUE-MIDI-GIGA-VST-ARRANGER
QRANGER is one fine tool that is having all points of arranger in visual mode.

You can repair all notes, tones, waves, velocity and all sysex with mouse or with touch screed pressing of finger and moving it to right position on the notes. Also all quantization is included.

Please tell me what you need more in style arranger than this.

Thanks magic Alfa.
In about 2 weeks the main developer will also include in the code the Dissi-Vst host plugins system, where then we are able to loading VST Instruments and effects inside the sequencer, without use the external jack connection kit.

another news about VstHost:
My friend Hermann Seib also released the new windows VstHost with a lot of new features, including the Mediastation.dll driver and Lionstracs sysex code inside: http://forum.hermannseib.com/viewtopic.php?t=286
you can FREE download it and enjoy!
cheers

hello
I have update the first 2 video demo how to compose one audio style.
In this video you can see the Qranger composer, where you can record/drag&drop audio files, midi styles or normally midifiles, then you can take the only region desidered and you drag in the Chord table: http://www.lionstracs.com/demo/qranger/record1.wmv

here then the same session loaded on the MS arranger engine, where you can then switch the chords and patterns: http://www.lionstracs.com/demo/qranger/playms1.wmv
is just a simple example, like a Groove Box mode too, but the possibility and endless, need only some fantasy to drag& drop files in the patterns and chords desidered.
In each tracks also you can iserert how many effects plugins and then make the final mixdown how you like.
After one session is made, i can just SAVE AS: another name and have TON of different styles version from the original style.

Soon I will shown also the audio/midi transpose and how will import standard midi styles and play it after just 10 seconds!

have fun....
cheers

Hi Dom

It was nice to see and hear, the videos on the MS...Especially this link http://www.lionstracs.com/demo/qranger/playms1.wmv
It showed a nice view of the instrument..

I can only speak for myself but, is there any chance that you can create a video on converting a Yamaha Style for use on the ms , for example?

I have to admit that this AUDIO ELASTIQUE-MIDI-GIGA-VST-ARRANGER is really quite powerful software..It really takes you on a different path as compared to regular style making...Just trying to figure out how to incorporate the hundreds of regular styles that I have with this new arranger software.....
Am I correct in saying that , a person can add an audio segment to any style?

regards
Ron

Hi Ron
thanks for the compliments.
Seem that you have understand the Qranger concept and if you are able to use one standard timeline SEQ, under Qranger you have the totally freedom to compose any type of styles.
Can be only by Midi,Audio or Midi+Audio.
You can also configure it to play like a Groove Box Loops Pattern system or just for a regular midi Styles.

In this week we will integrate the EMC Style work module script and then we are able to import any type of brand styles into the qranger.

For sure you know well the EMC style converter, just import there one styles without convert to the destination format.
After the style is loaded, select the EXPORT to Sequencer module and export the whole style under ONE Midifile mode, with the all parts ( 24 tracks, Maj, Min, 7th) and save this midifile where you like.

Copy this all exported midifiles in to the MS Hard disk.
Open the Qranger editor with a empty template session.
File: Import Midifile: select one of this exported style and press enter.
The Qranger script will automatically loading the all 24 tracks and will move the all tracks under the relative Chords Tab.
the script will also automatically setting the all markerpoints available on the style loaded.
after imported the style ( about 2 second time) press Play and all the tracks/patterns are ready!
look here the example: http://www.lionstracs.com/store/images/qrangerpic/qranger%209.jpg

now about your question..
after one standar midi style is loaded, you can also start to add new audio tracks ( unlimited of course) for each patterns and chords Tab.
if some midi drums you dont like, just delete it and drag inside the audio files, the realtime timescretching will also adapt the all clips parts in the right timeline BPM.

save the Session with a new name, then start again to editing a new version ( always with the same syle) and create more version that you like.
When you return back the the MS interface, select the style, ( the style here is the Folder name) where then you can select for default mode the session version that you like much better for this type of style and press Play. In this way you can have a lot of different style version to recall in realtime.
The final result you can see on the video demo too.

so...with the match with EMC style works, you can loading TON of different styles, ready to play after some seconds.
of course then the work is to replce the original program change found to the another desidered sounds and make the final mixdown.
The mixer interface is really easy with the possibility to load ton of pluging for EACH desidered tracks!

One Note: you have to choose HOW to editing one styles for wich use you will have it.
One normally midi style can be loaded and ready to play in less 1 second, BUT if you start to insert BIG GIGA files, 10-20 effects, VST and so on...you have to understand that also need the time to preload this all data before you can hear the all track. Untill you will use audio tracks is not a problems, because we make HD Streaming, but Plugins, VST and big GIGA need some time, depend of the size of the data used.

Anyway, I think too that this qranger tool will Open a lot of new styles view, with no limits, depend only on your compose fantasy.
If you also saw the composer video demo, you can make new styles without record nothing on the keyboard, just Drag&drop audio-midi files or single zone of the desidered file.
More freedom and easy like this....

cheers

Is this QRanger software open source? is it possible to run the OS for the lionstracs and this qranger thing on a regular computer and hook up my midi gear to it? (I've noticed you sell cd's with the software online), if this is possible I might just buy a copy now...

Our mediastation OS Linux distribution is not working in one regular PC, because the the installer will detect the VGA PCI, Audio PCI ,Serial PCI boardsand the AM2 Mainboard from our list. Without this propietary hardware, the installer is not able to install the all Debian packageand setup the all device and optimizing the RT kernel multimedia.

End of this month I will relase the only Qranger Composer under the standard 64studio distribution and then there you can test/develope styles in one regular PC.

Note: the Qranger Composer is able ONLY to compose the styles, markers, chords, effects, ready to read and loading in the Mediastation Qranger Engine Core with the all realtime arranger features.

Qranger Composer ( the editor) do NOT include in the engine: Audio elastique realtime transpose/timescratch, Patterns logical switch, Next BAR patterns switch, chords On/OFF, Tempo change in realtime.

for this all realtime features, you need have the mediastation...
