MilkyTracker Drummer 2

I made another song in MilkyTracker, then recorded some drums to it. I created most of the samples in this one directly in MilkyTracker. I’m really happy with this one, especially the drum sound.

I only had 4 inputs for drums so I miked up the kick, snare, a single overhead, then used a behringer line mixer to run two dynamic mics to one channel for toms. In the mix I painstakingly cut every single rack tom and floor tom hit and put them into their own channel so I could pan them separately. With the single overhead, I duplicated it, changed the eq on the copy and offset it slightly with the original, then panned them LR to give it a pseudo stereo image.

This is actually the second version of this video I made, the first one had some lag in the transitions, so I redid the whole vid in Sony Vegas and it came out much smoother.

Hang glide through a wormhole that transports you to Thailand with Deluxepaint 418

Right now I present to you this hip video from Deluxepaint 418. This track is pretty damn cool for being made on a computer from 1989! Deluxepaint 418 makes all his music on Amiga Protracker, a vintage software that ran on the Commodore Amiga computer from the late 1980s early 90s. Check it out!

Vintage Jungle, Drum & Bass music playlist Amiga Style

Here’s a really cool mix of some great Jungle / Drum & Bass stuff made on the Amiga using Pro Tracker. It’s crazy how good this stuff still sounds when it was made entirely in 8 bit!
