It was last year that Tallchief started the project by making an Excel drum machine in Microsoft Excel. Gradually, he started adding new features, including other instruments, editing methods and global controls.

According to a report by geek.com, Microsoft Excel generates the MIDI files which are played by a synthesizer or an external device.

Tallchief explains the features of xlStudios with a cover of a-ha's "Take On Me."

xlStudios has a transport section which comes with playback controls and looping function. It also enables you to single out or mute.

There are global settings that allow the tracks beat per minute (BPM), legato, swing and output routing. You may opt for octave, tempo, and use other tweaks for volume.

There is also a sub-menu that enables you to change the sound, volume, semitone of the instruments for each track. Users can add piano roll, add arrangements and playlist, include .als Generator so that it can be opened and played easily on Albeton.

Tallchief took to YouTube where he explained how one can use xlStudios and compose music using Microsoft Excel.

 

Without much ado follow the above mentioned steps and try creating or composing music of your choice with the help of Microsoft Excel on your system. If you love to compose music, you may find innovative ways while you work on creation of music on Microsoft Excel.
