Controllerism Essentials – Basic Beat Juggling

August 23, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Here’s a new video covering the exciting area of beat juggling.

“Many of the topics we cover on this site end up touching on controllerism, or the musical manipulation of music with controllers. It seemed strange then, that we dont have more tutorials that help develop fundamental techniques and improve DJ’s music chops. Well, starting now – it’s time to end the dry spell and bring you the 2nd installment of controller essentials, which I hope to grow into a cannon of fundamentals useful for building a solid music repertoire.  Let us know in the comments what you think of the concept and topics that might help!”

“This month our resident rhythm expert, Ryan Lucero-  a professional drum instructor and performer, brings us another set of lessons on ways to improve your time and rhythm. Last month’s metronome basics provided a solid foundation for daily practice and now we dive into 3 specific voices that can be used in a set.”

BEAT to MIDI – correction of poorly captured or performed drum recordings

July 14, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Forge Audio Designs has released a free drum replacement tool for Windows, BEAT to MIDI:

BEAT to MIDI will be the first VST release from Forge Audio Designs. BEAT to MIDI is a fast acting, low overhead Beat Detection and Drum Replacement tool which producers and musicians can implement to extract MIDI data from Drum loops.

BEAT to MIDI allows for the correction of poorly captured or performed drum recordings after the recording session has taken place

BEAT to MIDI uses sophisticated algorithms to identify each drum hit (or transient) in the time domain. Once this point is detected, MIDI data can be used to trigger replacement drum samples to alleviate poor quality recordings and/or timing errors

Features:

  • Detection of drum strikes and output of detections to a (defined) single MIDI note
  • Supervised Pattern Matching system to identify drum instruments
  • Detection of drum strikes and drum instruments with output of detections to appropriate (General MIDI defined) MIDI notes
  • Automatic ratio settings to allow easy settings of thresholds

Note:

  • BEAT to MIDI is a PC Only VST 2.4 Plug-in and must be used in a compatible VST Host.
  • BEAT to MIDI has been tested within Cubase 5/6 under Windows 7 but Forge Audio Designs cannot ensure full compatibility with other hosts and Operating Systems at this time.
