I'm looking at the possibility of recording backing tracks
on my BK7 for use with my accordion for restaurant work.
I will need at least 30 tracks/pieces. My aim is to cut down
on Midi cables etc and leave my BK7 at home.
I'm looking for advice as to what type of media player I would
use on the gig and could it be controlled by a footswitch.
The recordings I've done so far are Wav files on my BK7 USB
memory. Do I need to convert them to another format or are Wav
I'm thinking laptop computer or maybe an Ipod.
Any thoughts, anyone ?
Are you running a Roland V Accordion or standard with midi? To me just playing midi, doesn't always sound real, if you know what I mean. It depends if you can make it work for you, thats fine.
Sometimes running Band in the Box on a laptop ( which is what I use with a set list made up), for the night can work for you. But you need more hands on to run it smoothly, may be nasty(awkward) with an accordion, not sure.
Running wav files or trimed down real audio files ( you take out the vocals and the lead part), then you play and sing over the music, can work. My daughter uses real audio files and trimmed them through Sonar Producers version, and she just plays acoustic guitar over the top. Don't know how she steps through her songs, though.
