    This has been given away in January 2017 last time, as version 4.3.0.

    Here is what's changed since then http://www.beladaddy.com/hitfactor-new.HTML

    Installation and registration went fine.

    https://i.imgur.com/qk3HBIY.png

    I wish the icons in the GUI were more HQ, many of them look distorted and kinda ugly in fullscreen. The loading time on startup is slowish as it loads the modules on every startup.

    Played a little bit around with it but i'm definitely not a music composer guy, so everything sounded almost the same to me.

    There is a decent help file included in PDF format, which should help one to get started with the program.

    I'm keeping it, looks fun, i guess.

    Too bad none of my VSTs are supported! I was looking for a VST host and this looked promising but I tried loading about 20 different VSTs: 64 bit, 32 bit, dll, vst, vst3; guitar amps, compressors, delays, synths etc etc, but each one got the message "not supported VST plugin".

    Kevin, The standard VST files have to declare the “VST Category” in the VST file. If the VST category is missing, the HitFactor will not open it because there is risk for error. However there are many good VST files which missing the VST category.
    Here are some links to standard VST files.

    While I would have preferred a keyboard alternative to the mouse input (and will go through the help files to make sure there isn't something hidden), it looks like a fun thing to play around with. I especially appreciate the notes because people just learning music need to associate the sound with the notation. For example, I can play several nursery rhymes on the piano, but I struggle to read music. This could help connect the hands to eyes. Another reason why a keyboard over mouse way to play the piano would be useful, especially if you have a midi piano keyboard.

    One small bug I noticed. You cannot actually turn off the notes. I clicked the note indicator at random and no matter how much I click it, the button stays checked -- On Win 10 64 bit.

    If the sample songs on the video are any indication of what the software does, then either the operator has no musical talent or the software is just useless.

    I use to compose music digitally decades ago. Of course, the mechanics have changed since then. But the most important aspect of getting quality sound - to elevate the end result above amateurish midi sounds - is/was using excellent instrument samples or sound fonts. I notice that the program defaults to using the midi sounds provided by the pc which would be a Microsoft wavetable on a microsoft pc. The sampled instruments from the Microsoft wavetable sounded terrible on my laptop. I think you'd have to purchase software with better sound samples to use with this program.

    The other thing is that the video provided on the site seems to indicate that you can't create your own melody line? The melodies that comes with the samples are frightening, but you can only tweak the overall sound?

    The other important aspect is/was being able to make percussion loops with special effects. You can always get software like Fruity Loops and import the results as wave files. But this software is very expensive. I notice the program doesn't come with any VST effects only the capacity to use them from inside the program. I opened a few of the sample midi files, but the melody sounded nonsense, like a key had to be chosen before playing.
    One nice aspect was the option to write lyrics from within the program.

    The above was just my experience from a 30 minute tryout. But this playing around seemed to indicate that professional sounds and the ability to write your own melody were beyond the capability of this program.

    Another thing, to paste the key into the dialogue box, you have to go through the motions a few times, and also to maximize the program from the tray you have to hit the icon about four times - on my microsoft laptop, anyway,

    Wendy, The quality of the sounds depends of the MIDI out device on your computer. You can install the free VirtualMIDISynth from CoolSoft and use SoundFont files instead of the Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth. There are a lot of free Soundfont files on the net. https://coolsoft.altervista.org/en/virtualmidisynth

    Bela, now that improvemement over the default software midi MS provides is astounding... the karaoke version of a relatively famous song sounds BETTER than the official song much more consistent sound and instrumental notes timing... needless to say it's a world of difference compared to MS GS wavetable synthesizer all VMS needs to do is add the default filetypes it can handle to the open soundfont dialog and add the sfArk DLL to their software so it can import sfArk files directly and extract the files internally. But well worth the time downloading and well worth the SSD space on my Win10 laptop. Should be able to use it to render some very usable backing tracks for live performances! Thanks :)

    Bela, I'm trying to reverse engineer the unlocking bug and part of the process is tracking its file and registry accesses and I noticed something completely unexpected for some reason the program searches for 6000 undo .hfy and .txt files during the intialising of the program and none of those files exist... is it searching for them in order to clear the undo history from a previous instance of the program? If that is the rational for this apparently redundant search for absent files could be made more efficient by just deleting *.* all the files in the temporary folder created by the program?

    delete C:\Users\UsersName\AppData\Local\Temp\HitFactor7*.*


    *dives back into procmon logs* ....

    Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

    Bela, would I be correct in deducing that in an ideal world the registration/unlocked authorised data file is:

    C:\Users\Public\BDRegistration\HitFactor7RegFile

    which by default does not exist and in this giveaway build is not created by the program but is looked for and if a file of that name is created externally the file is opened and closed twice during program initialisation but obviously not having a template for the correct string format of the file it does not authenticate as unlocked and no entry of the supplied code can prompt the program to write the unlocked data to that file... do you by any chance have a valid copy of that file or its contents we can copy and paste into it to unlock this giveaway in a persistant manner?

    Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

    TK,
    I am not connected to the developer, but as a developer myself, I know that it often a better idea to delete only files that the program has created, even if that number is a large count. Otherwise, if a user has (for whatever reason) saved a file in the same folder, they are not too happy about finding that a later version of the software wiped their data out. It is never a good idea to irritate customers by deleting their data.

    Reply   |   Comment by Gary  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

    Gary, This I understand and fully agree with but in this case the filenames are unique to this program with a numerical sequence and were not actually even created which is the waste of time and resources doing the equivilent of a for next loop 3000 times and looking for two file types per itteration and no logic saying the first one does not exist so I would not have left a 3rd numerical or 4th numerical version of the name let alone the 3000th file pair! One could simply do the equvilent of a DIR operation with a wildcard match

    C:\Users\UsersName\AppData\Local\Temp\HitFactor7Undo*.*
    if found delete them preferably using the same wildcard. But if using that logic just try and delete them and trap the file not found error if none are found.

    Oh just had a thought what if two instances of this program are running at once on the same machine ... I can't test if the program allows multiple instances in the same user context as I've now uninstalled it as the dev does not seem to want to engage on this/these bugs. ANd without a persistant unlock code it is not practical to waste time learning how to make this do something musical even if it's free.

    Bela, I have replied and confirmed that the inital bug that was fairly widely reported has been resolved .. On re-installing I decided to check on a some things that occored to me could be problems from what I learnd in the reverse engineeering attempt.... IF I was right regarding those numbered undo files the program attempts to find in the users temp folder are what's used to store a database of the current instances undo history for redo use in conjunction with undo... I figured it would likely cause problems if a user was logged in with either multpile same account instances i.e. more than one instance via remote desktop of the same account name (unlikely) or ran multiple instances of HitFactor within the same user login it would probably cause problems since all instances will share the same temporary fileset for undo history and if I am right that on init you are looking for in order to clean up a previous instances left over temp files then launching a new instance will probably interfere with an existance instances undo history files in the users temp folder...

    Also I noticed you are using a non-standard "+" graphic on your window controls for the restore / maximise button is there any reason for this? and the minimise button is not the underscore character "_" usually associated with the minimise function window control button that visually looks akin to a lower task bar where the program is sent to. I understand a developer can do anything they want with a GUI but changing things from accepted norms seems a risky thing to do with no apparent functional benefits. Also back to the multiple instance thing... if multiple instances are running then closing ONE window via the lower right big exit button or the X window control button terminates ALL instances. So the signal is propagating across multiple instances for some odd reason. My guess is no significant planning has gone into the what if the pesky user tries to run multiple instances... That's no big deal that there may have been little thought given to that scenario but that is why there are proffesional paid for alpha and closed beta testers to do things users could do intentionally or unintentionally and report results back so measures can be taken to mitigate less than desirable behaviour before public beta testing occours ;)
    I can give you a scenario when an end user might inadvertantly start two or more instances ... if they have an unreliable or failing mouse or touchpad that sends extra click events when trying to double click or the end user minimses the program for some period of time or its in the background and covered by another window (not everyone runs all programs with the windows maximised to full screen) power users often use multiple windows layered or visible at the same time and because they may have other things on their mind may forget the inital instance is running and launch a new instance which is likely to interfere with the existing instance or instances.... My recommendation is check for an existing instance of the program on launch and if detected do not init this instance any further but signal the minimised or hidden instance to bring it to the forground in whatever window state it is currently set for either as a restored window or as a previously minimised, Maximised window and then exit the new instance cleanly (without exiting the previous instance of course)
    Hope the ideas help with further development or at least make some sense ;)

    Downloaded and set up OK. while playing with it, I noticed that the keyboard, while playing, say, piano, is out of sync with the notes played - eg - when playing a scale in C maj, pressing C actually plays F# below C, and the further up the scale you go, the further behind the real notes play - ie some notes appear to be allotted to 2 or 3 adjacent keys, rendering it impossible to play a tune.
    I'm not very savvy with Midi, so is it me, or is it the program that is at fault?

    Rob , The virtual keyboard visually shows the played note, but if you have a slow computer, the virtual keyboard may be unsynchronized but the notes played are still correct. You can click the Percussion button to turn off the virtual keyboard.

I noted a mention in this comment section about a PDF document that can be helpful. No link to the PDF was given, so I would ask that someone please provide said link, or tell me how to find it?

    I do plan to keep this one until such time as I can get something better. This is good for what it does, but the quality of certain sounds leaves a bit to be desired.

    lenny b: I am a musician, a fairly experienced and versatile one at that. But that does not make me a composer, something I would LOVE to additionally be! I've been in several bands and can competently play along on even complex compositions. But I can't seem to compose my own songs. Having a program that randomly writes songs is not the answer to a lack of writing talent. But it might help to provide ones like me a creative 'nudge' in the right direction to come up with my own compositions, so I'm in favor of it.

    Reply   |   Comment by B-Radd  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

    Phillip, I agree. Some of us who use computer generated music composers do happen to be real musicians. It creates a way to have the music we compose stored on our computers for reference purposes. I and my brother and sister have been musicians and singer song writers for several decades. Using digitally generated music files serves to remind us of the arrangement, tempo, and other factors we want in our music. So I would say that the thought that we are amateurs is disrespecting our skills.

    Lenny B, please do not disrespect people you don't know.

    Phillip, I strongly disagree. True art comes from the soul and is quite often channeled from a higher source. A computer has no soul, nor can it channel anything from any source, higher or lower. Therefore, it is NOT an art form. Sorry. What you have here is either a toy or a worthless piece of junk. After listening to the "samples" on the video, it's pretty clear that there is no art involved.

    Brian, are all the installations you have persistantly unlocked? i.e. do they all report Unlocked/registered in the About dialog every time they are run or only after you fight through the error dialog to use the unlock code?

    If any are persistantly unlocked could you post the contents of the file:

    C:\Users\Public\BDRegistration\HitFactor7RegFile

    so we can create it here and work around a bug we are experiencing that is preventing persistant unlocking here? Thanks!

    Maybe fix the installer to install the files where the user selects instead of always to the C: drive, regardless of where the user selects. SSDs makes this important...

    Dan McAllister,

    Agreed. Version 4.3.0 allowed me to change the drive and top-level folder to install to. I tried the same with this version, but the only thing that was placed into the folder I chose was a file named Vinstall.log (the rest went to C:\Program Files (x86)).

    During the copying files phase, the dialog showed that files were copied to the C drive, both for the 4.3.0 version and this 7.3.0 version, only that the 4.3.0 version did end up in the place I specified.

    I noticed the setup program is different from 4.3.0 also; it fills the entire screen background and has the regular install dialog over top of it. It looks like installers used during Windows 3.x era. The product needs a better installer for sure.

    Marek, please, type here what is the exact error message.

    Marek,

    When the Invalid unlock-code is displayed, I noticed that the key I had pasted in was now changed to a different number without dashes in it. I clicked a second time and the registration works. Odd behavior, but the second click works.

    Gary, after entering the Unlock code (from Readme.txt) and clicking OK, then Error window appears:
    " '3867529476' is not a valid integer value "

    Marek, I got that under Vista thought it might have been some kind of problem with the parsing of the windows version in the activation process... always looking for reasons that may be my fault ...
    Despite that dismiss the alert and press ok to dismiss the entry dialog ( I think that is what I did then when I went back to the About dialog it showed as unlocked/registered for me in the location where one normally sees the input field for the unlock code. Hope that helps

    TK, I have already noticed that clicking OK causes the unlocked / registered information to be displayed, but only to close the program. Restarting the program, it is still in About asking for Unlock code.

    Marek, thanks for the further clarification, it fails to save the unlocked / registered data to the file it uses to save the license and since we don't know the syntax used in the file we cannot manually create it. There has been no further replies from Bela who I presume is from Beladaddy.com I have given up on resolving this before the giveaway expires so have uninstalled the program. Oh well wonder what's coming tomorrow!

    you need to remove the dashes too

    Marek, Unfortunately, the "Unlock" feature has failed on some computers. I can't reproduce this error on my computers, but I think I found the cause of this error. There is a new version on the download page. (Version 7.1.0.1)
    http://www.beladaddy.com/downloads.HTML
    Uninstall the old version and download and install the new version.
    You can use the following unlock code. This unlock code is valid for 2 days.
    0001-7B4B-3675-2921-DB95-23FA-622530-1E3E19-00
    Can you send me a feedback if the error is gone?

    Bela, kudos for resolving this bug without being able to reproduce it on your own machines... many developers would just throw their hands up and not try to sift through their code to find the possible logic that may lead to the bug in some unreproducable manner!

    This new build does not produce the old error and does create the files in the locations I mentioned in an earlier comment in a different comment thread. And of course does retain it's unlocked state now from one execution to the next.
    Thanks and well done :)

    I have tried it to install on XP.
    It works even on XP, but you need to have a fast computer and at least 4GB RAM.

    That demonstration video! If you want to get some people out of the room just put it on repeat, I'll download the program and give it a go, it actually looks OK.

    Marty, I wholeheartedly agree. The demo is painful to listen to and I believe Belladaddy is doing themselves an injustice by using it to bolster their product.
    I own pro software for composing and won't be using this, but it's great to see something "different" being offered here. It may be fun for some people to dabble with. As always, Thanks for the offerings.

    Marty, all the samples I tried were really unpleasant to listen to the notes seemed to be random notes within the key mentioned but no tonal relationship whatsover... It may be possible to generate pleasant "musical" note sequences but the interface is so busy and unfamiliar that I suspect it would take far to much effort to learn how to work the interface to produce recognisable chord progressions and inversions and arpegios maybe with a MIDI keyboard it would be made easier to input notes in sequence and simultaneously if one is familar with a piano style keyboard... Or I'll just stick with my Guitars.... LOL

    You have to add the unlock code, let it error out, and then add it again and it will register. For the Developer.. You have a bug in accepting the unlock code

    Bela, I received the exact same error as the Original poster reported and I can assure you there were no extra spaces before or after the code string from the readme.txt file AND I just re-confirmed it by repopulating my clipboard with the exact string I used before from Clipdiary and there was no error... it apears that for some reason an integer parsing error occours which leaves an integer value in the input box after the error box is dismissed and the unlocking did take place once I OK'd the new integer value from the About box dialog. There is a BUG it is NOT a problem with the nut between the keyboard and the chair!

    Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

    Totally agree with TK.
    I've been struggling with this irritating behavior (W7).
    My findings :
    - can't paste the unlock code, probably because of the dashes in it (not the spaces)
    - can enter the code but it leads to the "invalid integer" error
    - once the error message box is closed, the unlock code is replaced with a string of digits and letters (up to 95 in the unlock code) without dashes.
    - another click on OK leads to Registered/unlocked appearing in the box
    - once the program is closed and reopened, the about box mentions nothing at all (trial or otherwise)
    - lastly when I tried to paste the unlock code **without** the dash, I got the "invalid integer" error again.
    My opinion so far : bad design, bad programming.
    I dl'ed the program out of curiosity. Not sure I'll be feeling curious enough to try it further.
