Nonsense. Stop giving that lame excuse.

It's not exactly brain surgery, is it?

rk, I have his drum samples also if you would like them. I created a kit for Session Drummer out of them, they are pretty raw - old style sounding. Attached are 2 demos....


#1 is the Erdo Cymbals & his drum samples.

#2 is the Erdo Cymbals and Epic Kit

The PDF that explains the kits is also attached


Session Drummer is the VSTi. The Drum Midis are from Smart Loops. This is just tossed together, nothing was tweaked in any way. The Cymbal Sounds are just a small subset of what are available. You can grab this, and all of the SFZ kits I created out of Free Drum Samples from here....

And I agree that creating drum tracks with the availability of all the great MIDI that is available is pretty easy, but getting it to feel like a real drummer takes a drummer. Getting a bunch of key, guitar or bass loops takes a musician that has experience with those instruments to string them together into a cohesive whole & make them sound "real". Anyone can toss A-D-G together, but the choice of what A-D-G loops you use takes experience.  ;D

And of course this is a YMMV, IMHO, yada yada type of post, a LOT of folks disagree with me!  :P

Anyway, is it not great that we have so many choices to create great music now a-days?!  8)

Question,

Going well Smurf.  The little one is into the smurfs so watch out.

Thanks Ags.  Trying to get the catalog posted on bandcamp.  I like the album format and the different file format options.
