Well, unfortunately I have a very old computer hehe.. working memory 1 Gb tongue.gif XP Home Edition öhhh..öööhhh 2002 smile.gif

I am in a buying state of mind, but I guess not before summer. My plan is to put around 3000 Euro on PC and monitors and all the stuff needed
for recording properly at home. It takes some time to save that as we have a house that need care also. So for now I
record with cubase LE (light edition) using Zoom G2Nu.

But lets hold this until I get the gear and u can prepare a guide on using EZ-drummer wink.gif

Ok man smile.gif well, it's not that difficult actually. It's all down to creating a midi track in Cubase and loading a drum writing pluggin on that track. Once you did that, you can edit the track - there's a 'piano roll' as it's called, on which you can actually write any virtual instrument, of course, in respect to the loaded pluggin - it can be a synth, drums, bass - you name it wink.gif

But you need to get this installed, in order to work with it smile.gif

Sounds interesting Cosmin smile.gif

I'll sure will invest in that later on!
It must be great to create ur own song at home with all instrument though it isnt "real" instrument all of it tongue.gif

I'm still happy what u have done with this track so far. It helps to see it all in a new way:)

Always! My world changed TOTALLY after starting to work with virtual instruments and learning how to orchestrate my songs, record guitars and so on.

Now, I could finish the song for you if you wish, but I think it would be nicer if we did it together so that you may have a real context in which you can exercise the new skills - the choice is yours smile.gif

So I have been consumed with this melody for days and nights.
Trying to get the notes together..I havent been able to practise or anyting (sorry Gab). I have only had this in mind!
Strange indeed..
There are of course still work to do, especially with sound and Timing and a smoother way to play.

I call this: No time to cry

But here is a taste of it anyhow.
Please point out mistakes and please give me suggestions. I¨'ll be more than happy

Thx a lot Cosmin, for being there:) I will do that.

When I practise now I go with some lessons Gabriel has given me. AP and sweep with some legato.
But its the time, time, time that I would loke to have much more of!

Sounds good wink.gif Polishing your technique is always a thing to be kept in your practice schedule. Let me know when you are ready to work together on drum writing - it will literally change your world and your way of thinking when writing and orchestrating music smile.gif

You might want to take a look at this little tutorial in the mean time:

Yes indeed mate - regardless of the instrument, this is how the writing looks like smile.gif Imagine that those little squares can simply be replaced with other sounds - bass guitar, synths, pianos... you name it smile.gif

And yes, magic it will be biggrin.gif
