Thanks. Glad you are liking it. The fxs made a ton of difference. I'm really liking the other tracks too. Especially Ville's first track.

I added this track to my Dropbox. What do you guys think? I am pretty happy with it because it's the first drum track I've done completely without preprogrammed beats. It's got eq, compression, and reverb. I think some of the fx's might need some tweeks, but as a whole I really like it.

Nice! You did all that BY HAND? FROM SCRATCH? No drag and drop whatsoever? I must say that's impressive. I"ve made beats that way before and it honestly took me quite a bit of effort. I do find that the stock beats are often close but not quite what I"m looking for. When I'm working on a track, I"ll typically start with something close and then end up having to rebuild it to make it match the accents of what I"m playing.

Did you upload the reaper project as well? I'd like to take a look at your settings on your channel strip to see what you working with on the fx. Nice job smile.gif

Yes, I uploaded the reaper file too. But for some reason whenever I save my drums it always opens with the same default kit, (is it that way for everybody?) but I did this with the drum kit from hell. And thanks, I always had problems finding stock beats that went together I would find two that I wanted to put together but the tempo or something just seemed off. Once I figured out where eigth, quarter, etc.. notes were on the roll it started to make sense and I don't think it took me any longer to pull the beats out of my head than to search for something close to what I wanted. I'm curious to see what you have to say about my settings. It sounds better than none but some of the drums especially the toms to me seem a little lifeless. Something still seems off. Even through my cheap headphones. smile.gif

I'll check it out and give you some feedback. smile.gif The drum kit defaulting back happens to me too, I usually have to go in an d manually load DFH each time. It's a pain, but not a huge pain. smile.gif

I took a shot at replacing all of the Non standard plugins in the original reaper project from VILLE with Reaper native plugins Anyone still up for it, download the project file and take a look.

*VILLE has done a KILLER job in creating this track and its done using the very spiff method of assigning a track to each drum sound. This is FAR superior to letting it live on just one stereo track since it allows you to put fx/eq etc. on individual tracks which results in more control and better sound.

Here is the new reaper file as a zip.

VON HOTCH RYTHM?

VONHOTCH, as a fellow 7 STRING player, I wanted to see if you were up for handling this rythm part?

Cool smile.gif I'll tab it out and feel free to modify it and add to it. smile.gif It's got a bit of a stretch in in and requires some of our semi insane picking but after all the Vid chats i think you are more than ready!

VONHOTCH: Do you have any 7 string Guitar Pro Templates? My Guitar Pro installation won't actually let me make new documents, the NEW menu is perpetually blank for some reason so I have to edit old ones. I may need to reinstall. IT also seems to crash alot recently. Have you had any issues with it?


Here is the rythm done as a six string bit. Just start on 7 (low cool.gif to transpose smile.gif

Sweet! Fun lick! I have not had any problems with Guitar pro...I use Tux. biggrin.gif But I have not had a problem writing 7 string tab with it. Here is a blank 7 string file. Let me know if it works for you.

I can't seem to get the reaper file to work when I try to open it, and I can't seem to find the original in the dropbox folder. It says it has some stuff I don't have and won't play?

FREE SOFTWARE FOR USE ON OUR COLLABORATIVE PROJECT:

I wanted to share some free downloadables with you guys. Here is a FREE copy of

EZ MIX 2 LITE

and

EX DRUMMER LITE

That way without buying anything we can all use the same drumming program and the same version of EZ mix for spicing up various bits.

We are still using REAPER as our DAW so these two are our first standardized plugins to add in as part of our "Project Install".

Here are the download links:
