hello im in the process of recording my music coursework right now but it sounds very bland im just playing rhythm guitar with a bit of lead behind it. i wanted to know if it against the edexcel music GCSE rules to make a backingtrack with bass, drums, violin etc in guitar pro and use that as my recording, im going to play the main guitar parts over it but if i do this guitar pro will be doing most of the work for me.

is this against the GCSE rules ?

thanks

is this for your composition or your performance? cos if its your composition, as long as you wrote the backing tracks then it should be fine. I'm not even recording mine, I'm just handing in the Sibelius file i composed it on.

I'm pretty sure that if they found out you'd fail the composition segment of the course plus you would have to live with the guilt of cheating.
for shame...

wait are you composing the tracks or sampling them??

ive composed the tracks in guitar pro and am planning to save them as a midi file, i may send that in as my composition as i think it only has to be written by you not necessarially performed and recorder on an instrument.

Nope, it's not.

Your allowed to do any of your compositions on any Seqencers as long as you can put the playback on a CD and give that in as well, because all they need to some idea of what your getting at and most people don't have seqencers, so they just record them.

I finished my 2 on Sibaleus 2 weeks ago.

It's a lot easier than rounding up the idiots in my class to play them :L
