Korg nanoPAD2 Finger Drumming to Synthwave, Retrowave, Dreamwave!

80s VHS girls

Subscribe to my youtube channel and check out this performance with Ableton Live Intro with a nanoKONTROL and nanoPAD2 control surfaces.

I made a couple of melodic loops but am playing all the drum beats live on the nanoPAD2. I used mostly Simmons SDS7 and SDS5 drum samples and a couple others.

The bass tones are from the Jup-6 free VST plugin, which you can download here http://demonicsweaters.com/2015/02/add-this-to-your-vst-collection-free-roland-jupiter-4-inspired-vst-plugin-for-windows/

The lead and string sounds are the DSX from the UVI workstation soft-synth which you can get for free if you purchase a nanoPAD2.

Thanks for watching!

Korg nanoPAD2 performance with Ableton Live Intro – Geeky Gigs #6

This time for Geeky Gigs I used my new NanoPAD2 and my older nanoKONTROL with Ableton Live Intro with some samples I beat cut from an old Lo Borges LP using Waveosaur.

I’m not an expert at pad playing, but kept practicing all day and finally got something decent enough to post. I really dig it though since I’m a drummer, I can do this in my apartment and it doesn’t wake the neighbors!
If you want to know how to slice samples in Wavosaur like I did for this song, check my blog post here http://demonicsweaters.com/2015/03/chop-to-midi-workaround-for-ableton-live-intro-sample-chopping-tutorial-mpc-style-beat-slicing/
