This is cool ... like the guitar and the synth melody over top. Rhythm stuff sounds good, great bass line. I can can hear vocals on this.

Thanks Stan
I will need to come back to this...and add some vocals: some of the synths melodies were some experiments with potential vocal lines. The acoustic was capoed 4th fret.. but hmm..I will need to re-record that too with my mic rather than direct as this was... doing stuff with my mic wasn't possible today (too much ambient noise)...prolly add some electric guitar too.

I like this a lot. The bass line is particularly cool. Are you actually sitting at a kit and triggering the TD-9? I love how solid the drum track is and the tasty fills.

Thanks Andrew
Yup, no midi.. real audio out from the Roland .. 5 takes .. was a bee-atch to play to the click, 136 BPM.. some editing but mostly a "best" live take .. still not perfect... I've only had the kit since April this year...this is about all the things I know..lol.. best bday pressie ever: keep fit AND make music...marvelous things... it's my own "custom" APB kit too.. largely the Alt Rock/Punk preset with some of my own mods to it.

Boogie on down Karen! :o)
Thanks- first time ever trying recording playing drums myself, to a choon I made + playing to a click track (that was troublesome): I made my own metronome track ('cos I was finding it hard to hear the GB one over my thumping).. and .. then I liked the sound of me click track .. so I left it in spots in this some electronica spice... certainly moves.

Steve!
Cheers- thanks for the drum en-corage-mont. I know a few more beats (I do!) but I had to try recording to a click (was my ambition). I could have recorded it as midi and took the "easy" route .. but I was a sucker for punishment herein... my focus is very much drums, drums, drums .. which reminds me: I need to get back to mixing some drums scofugate provided for me (the kind chap). How's things?

great movement...
...and addicting vibe. i think the mix is great and i dig the keys the lie just below the surface (circuit dialog?). drums sound really good as well. thanks!
apb said 2856 days ago (June 25th, 2011)
Thanks Steve
The synths are: GB generators (Analog basic) for the metronome sound + Digital stepper (custom setting) mixed with a mix of 2 presets from a plug-in called "Absynth 4" .. one was an Absynth harp sound and the other I forget... in general they sit low in this mix as it's my way of trying out some potential vocal melody ideas.. but the main purpose of this post was really to play with my newly aquired toy: the drums. Thanks for the support.
