8 bit performance on a Korg nanoPAD 2 and nanoKONTROL

This is something I put together a while ago, but still really happy with it. I wanted to make an 8 bit trap song in real-time using Ableton Live and my Korg nanoPAD2 and nanoKONTROL. I first found and created all of the samples I needed and loaded them into Ableton’s drum rack, then I spent some time working out some beats and setting up arpeggiators to create the hi hat roll sounds. Once I had it all together I just had to practice for a few days then I made the video.

Korg’s nano series is a great way to get inexpensive and versatile controllers for Ableton. The fact that they are so small and come in different categories too makes them really great for creating modular setups for your needs.

You can pick up your own nanoPAD2 here

Akai MPD24 Finger Drumming – IROC Remix – Life – Fairlight CVI – Geeky Gigs #10

This is a remix of an awesome song I found on youtube by IROC https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Qsh3hmu4IM check out his vid and read the description after this.

I took the music from his video chopped it up, created a drum rack in Ableton out of it and played it all live on the MPD. The drum samples are all classic Linndrum samples and the video fx were taken from old Fairlight CVI clips.

Hope you enjoy it and subscribe, like, comment and support!
