Hi I love song factory
The rock band is great and pretty versatile but i can't say the electro pop band has been very useful to me yet, maybe just doesn't suit my stuff. though i may keep experimenting with it.
I would however like to use strings within rock band is it possible, or maybe new string sounds.
A country band would be awesome
inputting the melody either from a keyboard or putting notes on a stave would be great.I would love somehow to be able to control the melody for solo instruments if that is possible.

Hi minstrel,

Thanks for the feedback. We've got a string instrument to augment the Rock band which is close to completion. It's been a while in coming (we'd hoped it would be ready sooner) so we'll let you (and everyone else) know when that comes out - hopefully that'll help you out a bit.

I'll put a country band down on the wanted list - any particular artists you'd recommend? When we did the Rock and ElectroPop bands, we spend a load of time listening to a bunch of different tracks from that genre to build up a picture of which instruments and sounds we thought would be most useful, so if you've got any favourite tracks, that would be really helpful.

I really want to work in a way to input a melody - I've just replied to Darren's ideas on this topic:

As I say in the post - we'll see what we can do in V2

Thanks again for your input

I'd support the Country band theme. What about Brad Paisley as a style to emulate?

Maybe give Levon Helm's albums American Son and Dirt Farmer a listen.
