So...to get it started...

Based on Bob's swing and bossanova styles I wrote two "light " styles. The accompaniment is very simple and minimalistic. don't expect too much, it's my first try to write mma styles ;-)

The zip contains the style files and the example songs .mma and as MIDI.
I hope a lot of new styles will be coming up!

Kara or Moon: would it be possible to allow midi files as upload format? Thanx

enjoy
Alain

Brenzi,

On the MMA section in the kara-moon site, you'll find a button "upload". Just click on it and choose "style" instead of "song" to upload styles. I think this should work, and if it doesn't, we'll make it work  Wink

This style implements GuitarBallad4, a bright acoustic guitar. It has main strums on the beats, and reverse strums in between.
Time signature is 4/4.

 For best results, use a warm sound font.

Begin Doc

  This style implements RisingSun, the strum pattern made eternally
  famous 55 years ago by the Animals in their version of The House Of
  The Rising Sun.

  The style consists of three grooves with identical strumming but a
  different bass note.

  When you play this groove file you'll hear the first 16 bars of the
  song. The rest of the song is just repeating these 16 bars.
  
End

Thanks for this. Sounds real good when played via timidity. Oddly, playing on my synth generates the offbeats too loudly and they end up sounding like little drum-ish ticks. I'm sure this can be adjusted.

I sometimes hear this with fluidsynth and I always thought it was the CPU that couldn't keep up.
I just tried on my synth (PSR340) and it sounds normal.
Timitidy has no problems either, even with large fonts.

@sciurius any idea why I get this error on guitarballad4.mma ?

Code:
Warning: <Line 46> <File:mma-files/guitarballad4.mma> Offset in 'PLECTRUM' is '9.6 ticks' before bar start!
No data created. Did you remember to set a groove/sequence?

Guitarballad4.mma is just a definition of grooves, you'll need a song to hear it Smiley.

Attached an example.

Oops, my bad. I had wrongly assumed that given the same file extension, grooves could be played standalone. Clearly indicating that I am cheating on the manual (and that I am lazy).

A set of 40 files with 269 percussion grooves, converted from Zoom R24 data.

The Zoom R24 recorder, like several other Zoom recorders, comes with a
collection of built-in percussion patterns. With a dedicated program
I've extracted these patterns from the R24 and turned them into MMA
grooves.

Each of the groove files contain one or more patterns that are usually
variants. For example, beat8 contains patterns 08beat01, 08beat02 and
so on.

Best is to play the patterns and select the grooves that fit your
song.

If you want to make your own rhythms, the Rhythm plugin may be helpful.
