Morning Train

MP3: Morning_Train.mp3
MIDI: Morning_Train.mid
SE40 Project: Morning_Train.sep

This demo Project demonstrates SE40 possibilities in generating and transforming MIDI data. Pressing [I/P] (Initial / Processed) button in toolbar you can see data generated by track MFX Chains according to the song Chord Progression (all tracks, excluding #3 and #4) as well as data recorded in real-time using MIDI keyboard (Flute tracks #3 and #4).

To finalize song I arrange track Volume envelopes and Pans. You understand that saving a song as SE40 project you can return to it any time and change all settings achieving new sounding or adjusting it to the new set of your synths.

Heavenly Overture

MP3: Heavenly_Overture.mp3
MIDI: Heavenly_Overture.mid
SE40 Project: Heavenly_Overture.sep

This demo Project demonstrates SE40 possibilities in generating and transforming MIDI data. Pressing [I/P] (Initial / Processed) button in toolbar you can see data generated by track MFX Chains according to the song Chord Progression. So, Track #2 is fully generated. Solo piano Track #1 is the data recorded in real-time using MIDI keyboard. Tracks #3 and #4 are simply copied from Track #1. But MFX Chain using provides them with the totally different musical characteristics!

How was it done? Here is what I did:

  1. Recorded first Piano track (Tune 1 and Bridge 1-1) and quantized them, using Quantizer tool.
  2. Created Chord progression using Harmonizer tool. Note that I used different Harmonizer presets for different parts of the song: Tune 1 was harmonized using "Gypsy" preset, but Bridge 1-1 was harmonized using "Special" preset.
  3. Copied recorded part with Chords to create full song structure.
  4. Set necessary MFX Chains when I wanted to transform or generate data.
  5. Applied Interpolator tool for Tracks # 1 (Piano) and #3 (Trombone) to the measures #25-28 to achieve "detuning effect" distorting notes numbers.
  6. Arranged track Volume envelopes and Pans.
  7. Drew Tempo curve by mouse "on the fly" during listening to song parts on a loop.
  8. You understand that saving a song as SE40 project you can return to it any time and change all settings achieving new sounding or adjusting it to the new set of your synths.

1

Piano Track

No MFX at all. Real-time solo part played on and recorded from MIDI keyboard. It was quantized using Quantizer tool.

2

Strings Track

1. Chord Generator produces chord notes for all song according to Chord progression.
2. Modeler was used for generating Orchestra String accompaniment.
3. Shaper increases Velocity and change note numbers to achieve "detuning effect" in measures #25-28.
4. Second Shaper provides Velocity curve in period of 2 measures for this entire track.
5. Time-Pitch Adjuster lowers score on one octave in measures #17-20.
6. And second Time-Pitch Adjuster lowers score on one octave in 13 measures from measure #30.

3

Trombone Track

1. AutoPhraser inserts Phrase Markers into real-time solo part recorded from MIDI keyboard (it was copied from Track #1).
2. Time-Pitch adjuster limits note range between numbers 62 and 73 from measure #30.
3. Modeler inserts necessary performance nuances - Breathing (Expression), Pitch Wheel, Modulation, etc.

4

Strings Tremolo Track

1. Time-Pitch adjuster limits note range between numbers 65 and 76 in all this track.
2. AutoPhraser inserts Phrase Markers into real-time solo part recorded from MIDI keyboard (it was copied from Track #1) beginning from measure #30.
3. Modeler provides "tremolo manner" of playing (Vibraphone PMStyle was used!) convenient for this String track.

Have success with SE40!
