This message is for all those that haven't purchased CPU Bach yet.
I know some of you are thinking "Yeah I know it composes music in the style of Bach but what else does it do?" Well you can customize the instruments it plays to suit your tastes, you can choose between chorus, piano, violen, oboe, strings, woodwinds, horns, synthesizers, ect. and it will compose music using the instruments you choose and you can also choose the amount each intrument is played when it composes the music. You can even save the programs on how the music is played plus you can save the music itself if you think what it is playing good enough that you want to hear the same thing later. Whats cool about it is that some of the programs are named after times of day or atmosphere so you can program it to play a certain style in the morning program or more of an upbeat style for the party program.
Then there is a mode where it pans and scrolls through a gallery of pictures it has on the cd, these are beautiful pictures of churches, forests, sunsets, birds, trees, flowers, insects, that are simply breath taking. I don't know how many pictures there were but I know in the time that I played it It was rare that I saw the same picture twice.
CPU Bach plays preludes, allegros, fugues, dances, and many other styles, it is a great program for the person is somewhat interested in classical music and wants to learn more and also for a person who already knows most everthing about classical music and wants to experience something that is truly different. No you can't compose your own music with it, but a doubt that most people could do as good as a job of creating music as cpu does. CPU creates music thats different every time you turn it on, the music is not as original or stands out like toccatta fugue but it is still good none the less and the instruments sound pretty good and realistic. I think the programmers did a great job with this and that it is really under rated. Everyone who is into music should run out and buy this.
The only thing I didn't like was that it did not come in a handy jewel box that I could fit with the rest of my cds.
P.S since cpu Bach makes new music every time you run it and every one that has this title will hear different music. what to keep people from stealing the music and claim it as their own? Will computers be able to make better music than people in the near future? Is this philosophy class?
Just my opions.
P.S.S.This is the longest post I am ever going to write
