Band Jam Trio, no guiro! (from/for Harmony Navigator 2)

_sj Band Trio 02.rtime     (from/for Harmony Navigator 2)

The Combo: Band Jam, stripped down to a trio (piano, bass, drums), and with the drums Figure exported, edited to eliminate the guiro sound, and then re-imported.   

The sonic motiviation here was that I found the repetitive guiro sound annoying, but more generally, this shows that you can export an Instrument from a Sketch (the Drums in this case) by dragging it to your DAW, edit the MIDI in the DAW, export the edited MIDI from the DAW as a .mid file, and then finally import that .mid file using Phrase -> Import into the Take parameter of the original Instrument.

Finally, copy/paste the Take into the Figure of the Instrument and save the Sketch.   Voila, the Sketch is now minus whatever you've edited out!

Loaded your sketchband in Synfire and by going to the progression tab ..i opened a palette and could play livechords (choose: play this  live ) for the existing 12 chords in a loop.

Knowing what the original chordprogression were.. you can try playing different chords and adding new some instruments?

Yes cool..

In Synfire you can making a convert to a arrangement from the sketchband and easily add more instruments if you like and expand your song

Convert this back from a arrangement  to a sketchband

Ofcourse Synfire is offering more functionalty add a higher price 
If Synfire is overpriced?

Note: band in box has lot of nice songs what can serve a song to start in Synfire
