is a Style?
essentially are the backing rhythms and accompaniments used on so called
"Arranger" keyboards. These let the musician play a chord on
the keyboard and the style plays the drums, bass and a number of
accompaniment instruments to the same harmony as the chord played.
Choose say a Waltz Style, play a C major chord and you will hear an
accompaniment band playing a 3/4 backing in the key of C, change to a
different chord, say A minor, and the backing band will continue playing
in A minor.
All "Arranger" type keyboards have built in styles,
however if for one reason or another you would like more then we can
help. Maybe you need a specific song or maybe your just bored playing
different waltz's to the same rhythm all the time. Usually these extra
styles work in exactly the same way as the built in styles i.e. if the
keyboard provides 2 Intro's, 2 endings, 2 fill's and four variations for
each style, the styles on disk will have the same number and work in the
same way as the built in styles.
Patterns and Arrangements. What's the difference?
practice these are the same thing, just the various makers way of
expressing what a style is. For simplicity, most in the business refer to patterns and
arrangements as styles.
all styles work on my keyboard?
not! Each keyboard manufacturer uses their own system for creating styles. One
assumes they all consider their own system to be the best and so there
is not a unified format. Worse still, the formats between models within
a makers range varies so it is important to choose not only a style disk
for your keyboard make, but also the model.
All Carillon Styles are brand new and written by our
style team. John Romero, Reg Siger and Dave Medcalf are three of the
UK's leading writers. We stand by the quality of our styles and are
currently in the process of making many MP3 samples available so that
you can listen before you buy.
Download MP3 Samples
samples are mainly for the use of those with broadband or a lot of
patience. We do keep them as small as possible, 1 Intro, 4 bars of
rhythm and an Outro. We have restricted most disks to two samples as
already they take up a lot of space on our server. We hope they give you
an idea of both quality and content to aid your desire to buy our disks.
A word of caution
We strongly recommend if buying styles from any
other source you ask the following questions.
1) Did they write the
2) Are they their styles or have they just copied them from
another keyboard (or worse Carillon Studios)
The wrong answer to
these questions means they are not just ripping you off, they are committing
