Topic: OT: Accompaniment plugin for Sonar

    Cool OT: Accompaniment plugin for Sonar

    Hey, guys & gals.

    You know about electronic keyboards that have auto-accompaniment: with your left hand, you hit the C key, and you get C-major accomp, or you hit G & F at the same time and you get G7 accompaniment, or A and A-flat at the same and you get A-minor accompaniment, etc, etc, etc. Meanwhile, you merrily play the tune on your right hand.

    Does anyone have similar functionality in a plug-in for Sonar? I kind of envision something that works similarly to Session Drummer, where you build a "song" (or sequence of chordal accomps). Then you can optionally extract the accomp into individual tracks (rythmn, bass, accomp instrument, etc.), so you can further customize down to the individual bar/measure.

    Thank you all for your respective input... the JMT product is exactly what I'm looking for!

    It was right under my nose the whole time! I've downloaded the full version.

    Cheers 'n' Beers.

    As an additional tool, you really should check out Band in a Box. It's a standalone app, but this is what these guys do, to extremes, and it's a very mature product. They're the head of the pack for auto-accompany stuff. An old friend of mine who did a lot of MIDI single / duo gigs used it heavily, it's a nice piece of work.
