RMCA Realtime MIDI Chord Arranger Pro (RMCA Pro) and MIDI Auto-Accompaniment Section (MAAS) are music programs for Windows 95/98/ME/2000/XP/Vista/Win7x32 in which RMCA Pro offers a lot of additional functions and was written principally for the advanced need. Both are full-function MIDI accompaniment automats that process ready-to-use styles and with which songs can be arranged in real time (an external MIDI keyboard isn't needed).
Hundreds of high quality styles which can be used with RMCA Pro and MAAS are collected in the RCS Style Library and can be downloaded for free.
The programs' demo versions have in general all features of the registered versions except for the saving capabilities, some special functions and the fact that only the about 30 supplied demo styles can be processed.
The Instrument List Editor that also can be found here is a FREEWARE "add on" for the accompaniment automats and can be used for editing existing instrument lists or for creating new ones.
