Create Automatic Arrangements in Just 3 Clicks with Bandora [Updated for 2019]

Bandora, our virtual music arranger and composer, was first released alongside the FORTE 10 edition. And with it came exciting opportunities to produce automatic, professional arrangements for songs in just three clicks.

Bandora provides access to more than 500 musical style files, including jazz, pop, rock, swing, reggae, waltz and classical. And it works both with a tune and without…

So you can have Bandora accompany your songs. Or, if you want to practice or improvise, you can give Bandora some chords and have it quickly create backing tracks.

Afterward, simply open up your arrangements in FORTE and see the scores. And once in FORTE, you can either continue editing the music or print the different parts for your band.

Check out this video for examples:

Please note, Bandora is included in FORTE 10 and 11 Premium and Home versions and is also available for purchase separately from bandora.com

We’d love to know what you think about Bandora and look forward to reading your feedback and any questions in the comments below.

    Bandora looks just like the old Jammer Pro interface (of which I am also a licensed registered user) which hasn’t had an update on 10 years. Looks like Forte and Bandora will be breathing new life into what used to be a top of the line auto accompaniment software until development in it stopped.

    Very interesting that this tune is essentially “Soft Kitty”–the tune Sheldon Cooper loves on The Big Bang Theory TV show.
    And I think the styles this person used are pretty inappropriate and sound terrible. First thing I’d do is check those chords. Some don’t sound right to me.
    You asked for opinions; that’s mine. I’d like to hear someone else do this with this tune.
