Drum experiment

Post  z on Fri Mar 11, 2011 12:06 am


Trying something out just for grins.

I connected my Kawai Keyboard to my Alesis drum machine via MIDI.
And then I took the stereo out from the Alesis and ran that into my mixer.
So keys on the keyboard trigger the drum sounds, and then I record the drum kits built into the Alesis (instead
of going MIDI right into the computer and using Garageband drum kits).

It's kind of tricky, but when I'm in the zone I can play drum tracks with my fingers.

I know it's not going to be the same, but it's a fun thing to screw around with....
at least I will be able to play "live drums" from a tempo point of view.

Z.....If you really want to work that way then this may be of interest to you:

It has midi and USB so that you can use it with your drum machine or with software and its reasonably priced Smile

You will also need some sticks if course Shocked

Or possibly build one yourself !!!!!!

i did a live recording once of me playing the drum pads on my keyboard. it turned out pretty cool, though i recorded it with a mic Laughing . i lost the song though, when my old pc crashed. maybe you remember my song "by the pond". i still like programing though...i'm a mess with timing at times haha. ooo

Cool!
That's a possibility.

I'm kind of looking for a used Roland electronic kit.

I think I remember that!

I am getting a LOT better at programming, thanks to help from Peter and everyone (Crimson Sky is a good example)
