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.

Brilliant chiptune site emulates Amiga Workbench and hosts a ton of great stuff

chiptunes website

 

There’s all sorts of Amiga stuff popping up lately on the web, and this is one of the coolest things so far. It’s a full blown Workbench interface that runs in your browser. It has a working command line, as well as runs several of the old popular Amiga demos and has shortcuts to them right on the desktop. Aside from all that, it’s also a huge library of free chiptunes in their native formats, SIDs, MODs, XTs, etc, links to other chiptune related things, an ftp directory hosting various players, videos and info. All around just a great little corner of the web!

I downloaded several chiptune packs and am listening as I write this, hehe. Anyway, just thought I’d share this awesome website. Enjoy!

Crazy fun remix of Super Mario World’s Underground BGM with live drums!

 

 

This time I decided to take my favorite song from the classic Super Nintendo Entertainment System game, Super Mario World and remix it then play some drums to it. I Took an original rip of the music from the game, then beat sliced it, sped it up a bit, added more parts (synths, guitar VSTs) then finally added my own drumming and game sound fx! I hope you enjoy it!

What USB audio interface do you use to record your drums?

A lot of people have been asking me what audio interface I was using in my “Nintendo 3DS and a Drummer” videos. Well, here it is. It’s an Alesis IO4. I love it. It has 4 XLR ins all with phantom power. Sounds great, and is reliable. On a side note, you can use it as a standalone 4 channel mixer without a computer. Also, these things are very inexpensive.
