Re: Linux Distro to make music with an old PC

I have an Acer One netbook with 1GB RAM running Ubuntu Studio. Even Ardour sort of works.

A newer Asus with 2GB, however, is much worse. Probably the processor is the culprit. Or maybe the Ubuntu Studio version...

Re: How to start with DrumGizmo

Hi, BearByte, I use Ardour and Drumgizmo in Ubuntu Studio. It works and plays imported drum MIDI files. I can edit the sequences, which were recorded to Logic using a Kat drum kit in my guitarist's home studio. Unfortunately I could not hook a MIDI drum kit to my computers, so I am not able to tell ...

Re: OSX State-of-Play?

Good news. Thanks for the effort.

I'm looking forward to using Drumgizmo inside Ardour in my Macbook Air, because my Linux machines (notebooks and netbooks) are very old and can't cope because of a severe lack of RAM.

I will compile in the next few days, if I get some free time.

Re: Fixed channel map

Either way (DGEdit or "manually" editing XML files), you realize that editing a kit is only necessary once and it's quick. So when you first download a kit, yes it's understandable that the channel map might annoy you. But it's something that will only bother you once if you edit the kit ...

Re: Fixed channel map

Recommending that a certain guideline to be followed...that might help. This looks like a good compromise. Anyway, most of kit elements and mic setups are similar: the “standard” mics that are always present are kick, snare, hihat, overheads, toms (by quantity) and room. Almost every drum kit has, ...

Re: Realistic acoustic drums?

The drumgizmo guys were also requesting a while back for drummers to supply midi beats. Of course that's depending on their time and if they have time available. I think that would be amazing for this community if we had a database full of beats that are good. I don't mean those cheap ones that you...

Re: Realistic acoustic drums?

- The most basic drumkit miking technique is a close mic on the kick, a close mic on the snare, and two overhead mics covering the cymbals, toms, and snare. (a more complex arrangement would close mic the toms and add room mics). If you can implement individual outputs for your instruments, putting...

Re: Fixed channel map

DrumGizmo is open for everyone who wants to create his/hers own drumkit. So, it´s difficult to enforce a fixed channel map.

Whereas I have the same difficulty whenever I try different kits on a given musical piece, I recognize that the possibility of customizing the xml files should suffice.

Re: OSX State-of-Play?

Hi! I went to compiling the Mac Os X version again, as per the instructions in https://drumgizmo.org/wiki/doku.php?id=dev:macosx_building_howto . It would be nicer if you had noted from what directory each command was to be executed. For instance, I cloned the drumgizmo git to my home. Should the zi...

Re: A call to arms! Midi files

What we need are human recorded midi files (recorded by someone playing an electronic kit) with different types of beats and fills. Easy. I play in an alternative metal band and now have some songs from where to draw MIDI loops. The only thing is that I recorded using a MIDI drumkit that I had not ...
