Re: Drum Roll or Flam Midi Effect. How do I use them?

It is true the beat is isolated in the original song, but I love the style. I would really love to apply that style, or groove, to a drum rack of my own choosing. BTW, that "50 ways to make a record" song couldn't even be called a cover. It is a total rip. It seems like a proper cover requires some ...

Drum Roll or Flam Midi Effect. How do I use them?

I really love the drum beat in Simon and Garfunkel's 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTiyLuZOs1A&feature=PlayList&p=CE60790C0E2C79DB&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=43.

Re: Software Drum Machines if you aren't a drummer?

Thanks VooDooPPL. That is great advice. I wasn't sure which quantization to use. I notoriously early on beats, and need something to keep me straight. I did give JamStix a go as well. It is pretty cool, I may even plunk down the $100. The money may be better spent on a decent pad controller though.

Thanks DJ Vespers. It is still impressive even after looking behind the curtain.

It seems like padKontrol would require the skills of a percussionist. Although it would a lot easier to "play" the drums than using my old Yamaha SY85.

Re: Take 5 jazz vs. Ableton Looper vs. Akai EWI wind synth!

That is crazy good. How do you handle all the stuff live? Do you have a small song template setup in Ableton? How long does something like that take to setup?

Re: Software Drum Machines if you aren't a drummer?

Thanks for the suggestions. Drum Racks are becoming less and less of an option because they seem to be such CPU hogs. I usually start songs with a Drum and Bass groove. As soon as I add other instruments I immediately run out of CPU resources.

Re: Little Light. A new track from Lou Leaves the Room

Thanks guys. It probably sounds like poetry because I can't really rap, so I just had to try my best speaking to a rhythm. Rapping is surprisingly difficult.

Software Drum Machines if you aren't a drummer?

What software drum machine do you use if you aren't a drummer? To be more specific, what if you need help creating organic sounding beats because you are stuck in step sequencer hell?

Little Light. A new track from Lou Leaves the Room

I have attempted a rap using ableton. Perhaps not that greatest rapper, but I did give it a honest effort.

Here is the link: http://soundcloud.com/lou-leaves-the-room/little-light

Laugh, cry, comment.

I know, I know. It's not trance, house, dubstep, tweak, or whatever. I'm no DJ.

Love the interpretation. How about a few more effects on the vox to tie them into the style of the music, ALA Dntel

bandito3, thanks. If you know of anyone interested in a collaboration, let me know. I am always trying to become more than an army of one.

Re: Collaboration?

I realized this may be a tough decision without hearing the track in question.

Here is a link to the track:

http://soundcloud.com/lou-leaves-the-room/tracks

It is called Sunshine and Razor Blades.
