I just stumbled across this on YouTube and couldn’t stop laughing at how silly this actually was. At the same time, I loved it and really want a vintage Simmons kit now, haha!
This is a video made by request of José on Facebook. He asked “Hey. I use audacity but I don’t play drums or have anything to record drums. I wanted to record songs on audacity with midi drums but I don’t know how. Can you make a video on that, please? Stay cool!” Since Audacity doesn’t work with MIDI very well, I showed a work around by using a tempo track, label grid, and loops. Hopefully this will help Jose and others looking to make their own beats without drums in Audacity.
We all feel it. Humans need to change. Show this video to everyone.
Despite not even being out yet, the YouTube video being overrun by angry trolls, this drum kit is the first electronic set I’ve actually wanted. Simmons came back into the e-drum market a decade or so ago and has mostly been focused on lower end kits until now.
A few things immediately caught my eye about this kit, the classic hexagon shaped pads, the mesh hitting surface, the classic Simmons sound banks, and lastly but most importantly, the ability to sample and import your own sounds into the kit!
I really want one of these things!
