Here’s the latest of the tracks I’ve been working on these past few months. It’s fairly simple I think. I’m posting the mp3 from the standard midi kit along with a video of me playing it a few days back.

Gluon-Free Lepton Croutons – standard midi

There’s another track I was looking on getting out last month, groovember or something like that. I’ll get around to posting a video on that one too. Also, it doesn’t have a midi version written down yet either. It doesn’t sound that bad with my usual pad settings (which are close to similar to the standard midi’s sounds), but using a different kit  preset (layered Super Boom) on it makes it way better. Much like it’s the case with Molten Dry Bips and the August Groove, for which I tend to go for the “Speed Metal” setup.
I don’t have enough cymbal pads for Molten Dry Bips, and then there’s all the snare and tom action, flam, rim shots, and whatnot. Might end up recording a simplified kick-cowbwll-snare version, or just the practice pad sticking it came from.

I haven’t given much effort in recording the groove I posted in August, my best take is from that same month. I wasn’t paying attention to varying the Hi-hat however, so it’s basically just always open instead of being mostly half-closed throughout. I’m still smoothening out that part, but the worst part is getting the toms to be crisp and sharp not awkwardly rolling in in hurried lumps.
