Re: Electronic Drums

I make Synthwave music so I use old drum machine samples all the time. I'll recommend some of my favourite things to use. Drum samples: * Boss DR-550 Mk1 * Linn Drum LM1 * Linn Drum LM2 * Roland TR-707 * Roland TR-808 Plugins: * TAL Reverb 3. It sounds amazing on 80s claps! There is a Linux version...

Re: any new kits from drumgizmo??

I made a new kit some time ago, a Tama ArtStar, but found some recording errors on the crash cymbals (they were brand new and I couldn't get myself to hitting them hard enough on the higher velocites) so I never released it. I am gearing up towards doing a re-recording of the kit soon, complete wit...

Re: The state of Linux DAWs in 2021?

For MIDI editing/programming, I quite like Muse. I usually use Ardour for mixing and recording, but prefer Muse for MIDI.

Re: OnTIs-59 Title Screen Theme (Video Game Soundtrack)

Cool! I immediately felt that this needs a big (gated) snare. And, yep, that's what happened :) Incidentally I watched (force fed by youtubes algorithms...) a video the other day about the origins of the gated snare, apparently they stumbled on the effect by a fortunate accident while recording one...

Re: Electronic Drums

Hello, finotti; If you are feeling adventurous, you may wish to watch some videos on how to generate electronic drum sounds with Geonkick by Unfa. He has a few videos on the subject. Here is a link to one of them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lKxzW_fGSg&t=588s Charles It's funny you said th...

Re: OnTIs-59 Title Screen Theme (Video Game Soundtrack)

Thanks @jeanette_c and @Rainmak3r for taking the time to listen!

I am not very familiar with Jean-Michel Jarre, but maybe I should take a look for some inspiration for next projects. This style is a bit outside of my comfort zone.

Thanks again!

Re: Electronic Drums

Again, thanks everyone for the helpful comments. I just finished (the first version of the) song, and I posted the result in the oringinal recordings section . It's clear I have a lot to learn about electronic drums. I ended up mixing lots of samples, including Drumgizmo's Crocell Kit (acoustic soun...

OnTIs-59 Title Screen Theme (Video Game Soundtrack)

This is the title screen theme for a video game my son is making (still in early alpha), called OnTIs-59. Very electronic/synth heavy. No guitars on this one... :-( The pads and bass are u-he's Diva and the theme is Zyn. Sequenced in Muse and mixed in Ardour. Song: https://luisfinotti.org/music/file...

Electronic Drums

I don't usually work on this kind of music, but I've been writing and recording music for (amateur) video games my son is making, and he wants "electronic music" for the background and theme. Some of the examples he's shown me are like 80's synth music, while some seem more modern. I have ...

Re: Laser Tag (Failed Video Game Theme)

Thanks, @Rainmak3r! I appreciate it! I didn't know (or remember) the soundtrack for "Black Rain", but checking it out, I take it as big compliment. :-) Thanks for taking the time to check it out and comment!
