I've said for years that it's too bad we're all so far away.  I have made such good friends here over the years, and will never get to even shake their hands...  :(

Coffee would be great, Ag.  Too bad we're so far away.  Weather is suddenly getting lots better here, snow and ice and those 3ft banks should be melting down soon...

Still shoveling, Ag.  These last 3 weeks have been the worst of the winter, with a dozen other problems tossed in.  I could whine about it for hours...  :P

I've been so preoccupied with everything going wrong around here for the last week I hadn't even noticed, RJ.  I bet White caught it...

oops, I was just reading the text message that I copied into my previous 'shout' and realized my buddy used some colorful language.   :o  

I see someone already corrected it for me.  Sorry!!  :-[

I've been working on how to improvise and just found this playlist with a metric crap-ton of guitar backing tracks. Thought I'd share.

Hey Hey, power back (for now).  But still snowing and blowing.

Wonder if Canada is getting any of this, or is it just our little treat?  :P

Well, heavy snow and 50mph winds with gusting.  Lost power about 6-7 hours ago.  Waited till it was 45 in the house to see if it would come back on before going out and starting the generator.  Hope it comes back on sometime tonight...

Drums Old & New....
« on: August 08, 2017, 06:37:03 PM »
Hey Folks, just a quick post about a couple New & Old Drum VSTi's.

New to me....

Sean Pandy Drums.....

http://free.chokehold.net/sean-pandy-drums/

A VERY heavy Rock / Metal sample set that works well with the following old favorite...

MTPower Drum Kit.....

http://www.powerdrumkit.com/

The big news about MTPower Drum Kit is no more net registration, YES! Ya just have to press a "Skip" button at startup, which means you can load this on more than one system very easily. Since my studio system does not get on the net, I have had to do without this plug in for a few, but now I can load it on my System AND my laptop without net access.

MTPower Drum Kit also has a fantastic selection of Midi loops to build a good sounding drum track. Tho only 4/4 & 6/8, it does cover a lot of area IMHO.

Oh, and did I mention that BOTH of these are At Our Favorite Price Pointâ„¢?  ~:)

Anyhoo, it has been a long time since I posted anything about VST-VSTi's  (!:) (I think we found all the good ones!) and this thread needed some cobwebs blown off of it...  ;)

Hope This Helps! 8)

Ok, I give up...how do you get it to work with MTPower? lol
 As much as I like the MTPower kit, I've often wondered how to load a different kit or trigger a different kit with it just for fun....

I've tried using it as a midi output but i think i'm doing something wrong... using Reaper btw...

Hey Neil, I will try to get a vid up for you a little later tonight, in the meantime along with MTPower Drums make sure you grab the Midi Mappings from this page....


http://www.powerdrumkit.com/presets.htm


Go ahead & grab them all so ya have them, but the main one ya want is the GM Standard mapping. If you watch the video at the time mark mentioned in the text on that page you will see how to load the mapping....

I am also using Reaper, so this should be easy!
