The Beatles. Medium rock tune. Has a nice saxophone melody that uses MOD controller and Pitch Wheel to add some human inflection, plus some nice "clean guitar" lines.
Rock With You
Michael Jackson. Medium disco tune. Shows typical 1970's disco "guitar vamping", string lines, and drum beat.
We Built This City
Jefferson Starship. Rock tune. Lots of synth embellishments. Uses the "Power" drum kit.
Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Rock tune. Lots of synth embellishments and effects above a disco-ish beat.
Elvis Costello. Synth pop tune. A more inventive approach to synth pop music with some cute Mozart-like synth lines.
Glory of Love
Peter Cetera. Ballad. This arrangement makes excellent use of Expression and MOD controllers and Pitch Wheel to give the sax melody, and other parts, human inflections. Nicely done string backgrounds and guitar parts.
Pink Floyd. Ballad. This arrangement makes excellent use of Expression and MOD controllers and Pitch Wheel to give the melody, and other parts (check out the sliding bass lines) human inflections. Nicely done acoustic guitar parts and electric solos.
Don't Let the Sun Go Down
Elton John. Ballad. Typical piano part for a ballad. Also, note the use of the Applause patch to give the effect of a live performance.
Eagles. Ballad. Good example of getting convincing "acoustic guitar strumming and picking" from a sound card.
Another Day in Paradise
Lionel Ritchie. Ballad. Lots of subtle interplay of parts, from background strings to acoustic guitar "strumming" to piano comp'ing.
Boot Scootin' Boogie
Brooks and Dunn. A country "boogie" (ie, triplet eighth note feel with walking bass line).
