Amiga Drummer 2.3, The Full Motion Video Game That Never Existed

Here’s part 5 of my Amiga ProTracker and a Drummer series. I made this one using all samples of objects laying around me at the time in while I was visiting my mom’s in Florida. Samples used were my Casio wristwatch beep, a kalimba (thumb piano) snapping my fingers and tapping on a plastic lid. I then dropped dropped the bounced wav file into Pro Tools 7.4 and added bass, then went into the studio and recorded the drums and this video. The video in this one I was going for a 90s Full Motion Video Game look. I used a green screen and drew the background in GraFX2, then assembled it all in FCP 5.1. To get the pixilated look I rendered using the Cinepak codec with a 256 color palate.

Written, produced and performed by Justin Wierbonski (me)
I play Tama Drums and Paiste Cymbals.

Akai MPD24 Finger Drumming – Plunderphonics / Vaporwave – Geeky Gigs #11

Here’s another performance on my MPD24 and Ableton Live Intro. All was done on a single drum rack. I cut up some samples and played them back in real-time.

Fairlight CMI Sample Collection | Free Fairlight CMI IIx Sample Pack

Fairlight CMI free sample library

 

This awesome Fairlight CMI sample library originated from a VSE forum post located here. The poster put all the files up on a sendspace account but were all broken up into separate files, so it took quite a while to download all the samples from the multiple sendspace pages.

I went ahead and downloaded them all then created a new rar file to download them all at once. Unfortunately the link on the original post was dead for disks 7 through 10, but the vast majority of the samples are still here and are quite good. Super gritty, lofi, 80s sounding stuff. You can load them into just about any soft-sampler and manipulate them and trim to your liking!

Wierbonski Drums Sample Pack | 1970s Vintage Concert Tom Kit

Wierbonski Drum Sample Pack

This is my first original sample pack I’m posting for sale and it is actually of the kit you see in this picture. It is a 1970s Pearl type kit that was customized by me. The snare drum is a 13″ steel Pork Pie. The little tom is not in the sample pack, but all the other drums are. The cymbals also differ slightly as to what is pictured here. Included in the pack are as follows:

  • Three kick sounds – one inside miked, another miked about 6 inches from the front, and a third that is a mixture of the two
  • Five snare sounds – two different tunings both muffled and unmuffled, there’s also a rimshot hit making five sounds total
  • Four hi hat sounds – open, closed, pedal and choke
  • Three crash sounds – big, small, china
  • Two ride sounds – body and bell
  • Nine tom sounds – since they are concert toms I wanted to get the full range of sounds available from this kit so you get all three toms with inside miking, top outside miking and mixed miking.
  • Ableton drum rack and project file
  • All samples are 16 bit 44,100khz professionally miked in my own rehearsal space

This is an incredibly realistic sounding kit and perfect for rock, garage rock, indie, experimental music. It’s very open and natural sounding and very powerful. Only $4.99!

plastique_3For number three we’ve got the Plastique, an HT-700 inspired plugin. This little plugin is quite cool. Not really exactly like an HT, but has some great sounds and very useful. Still definitely has the Casio vibe too.

mothmanz3000Number four is my own Mothman Z3000. This is another CZ type plugin. I modeled it specifically after the CZ-3000 with some slight differences. It comes bundled with 3 other Mothman synths. ALL FREE!

Casiopea VST

Number five, Casiopia. This is yet another CZ inspired 8 voice polyphonic synth. I’ve posted all the different CZ plugins because each has their own character and sounds.

Mokafix_Cheapo-Tone_3

 

Number Six – Cheapo-Tone, this is another VL inspired plugin, but instead of using samples, this one is a true software synth with digital oscillators to create the tones. You can also create your own patches from scratch and save them. Very cool!

Casio SK-1Number Nine – The undeniable classic Casio SK-1 (Sample Set) Unfortunately there’s not a plugin out there yet that emulates the sampling feature of an SK-1, but there’s some pretty good sound sets of the other built-in sounds, like this one.

casio fz-20mNumber Ten – Freon Surfer FZ. Last but not least is this really cool plugin that isn’t an FZ emulator, but rather drum samples that were captured from the Freon Surfer preset of the Sonic Charge MicroTonic software drum machine using the Casio FZ-20M, then made into a plugin with variable 9khz or 36khz sample rates, time stretched, and overdrive settings.
