What is Band Minus One?
Band Minus One is a software that enables you to create your own accompaniment by entering a chord sequence and choosing a style. You can use the included styles but also the many thousands of styles in Yamaha format that are available on internet. The accompaniment can be saved in a MIDI file that can be played on any MIDI file player or MIDI karaoke player. The software is meant for singers and all instrument players.
Band Minus One comes with a complete sequencer to edit MIDI files, e.g. cut and paste to adjust the number of verses increase or decrease the pitch to match the range of your voice and adjust the volume of each separate instrument. There is also an Android remote control app to play songs and select styles, you can download it from the website.
In the demo version you can't save files and playing is interrupted after 60 seconds. If you insist on trying the full program before you buy then you can collect 100 bonus points in a little game and win a free ride for 10 minutes. Go to the menu Files => About Band Minus One and collect the 100 bonus points. It will take just a few minutes and allows you to save MIDI files for the next 10 minutes (you can prepare the song before you start collecting the points).
The full version can be purchased online.
