Want to add together strings to my track recordings

I don’t need an entire string department, just a quartet: i violin, one viola, one cello and double base violin. If anything other, mayhap a couple of flutes, or panpipes. Looking for a heart world, Celtic or (Stairway to Heaven-like tone) to back up my vocals, 12 cord guitars and mandolin tracks. Is there a way to do this without buying a synthesizer, or hiring the Philharmonic or Led Zeppelin
:)

I was thinking of a plug in or some cheap software. Maybe something like Ring in a Box, and or RealTracks, only I don’t think either of these are compatible with Brazenness.

I would like to be able to produce a uncomplicated chord progression of the 4 instruments merely belongings a annotation or double stops, or doing elementary arpeggios in a given cardinal. Zippo also complicated or expensive. Costless would be nice. Perhapes some download with a trial version.

Thanks

Audacity doesn’t support MIDI. You’ll need to move-up from an audio editor (Audacity) to a DAW.

I don’t know anything about Band In A Box, but it’s probably a expert start. SONAR and Cubase take been popular for many years. REAPER is popular among domicile users because you tin go a home & pocket-sized business license for only $60 USD and you get the total-professional version.

Real Tracks appears to be virtual instruments which are an add together-on to the DAW. At that place are all kinds of virtual instruments available and they can go quite expensive (although cheap compared to real instruments), so information technology’southward probably worthwhile to cull a DAW that comes with some skillful virtual instruments.

There is a big learning curve with these things, so nearly people tend to stick with a DAW in one case they larn to use it.

Thanks, Doug. I’ll look into that I wouldn’t heed paying a reasonable amount for software if it can provide real instruments rather than simply midi. Midi sucks. Meanwhile I downloaded MusicScore. Are yous or perchance whatever other forum member familiar with this. Whatsoever chance this program could provide real sounding instruments.? I may accept a take a chance on DAW I think MIAB runs about a hundred bucks, maybe another $xxx for the RealTracks, which is probably all I demand. The two seem to only be available as a bundle. Is at that place a website for DAW?

And so basically, Brazenness is a recording and editing device, and cannot actually be used every bit an instrument (with the assistance of QWERTY for instance), and also cannot produce sounds, but but alter sounds that are imported or prerecorded?

Yep, more than or less. The main mode of creating sounds is with MIDI or VST instruments (Audacity does not back up VST instruments either).

http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Midi has some data about conversion betwixt MIDI and audio files (and vice-versa) and a list of some free MIDI applications.
