Geeky Gigs, an 8 bit and retro inspired live drums and DJ series

geekygigs

If you haven’t seen my Geeky Gigs web show, please check it out. Above is a playlist of all my geeky gigs so far. These are all solo performance videos of me playing several different pieces of equipment and software.

I spend some time playing drums to the Korg M01D on Nintendo 3DS, explore Vocaloid in a song with live drums and Megpoid GUMI, and show you some ways to use the Korg Nano series midi controllers live!

Next, I’ll be exploring possibilites of the Akai MPD 24 midi pad controller in the latest Episode of Geeky Gigs scheduled for this Sunday! I try to keep them entertaining and fun to watch, and new episodes come out just about every other Sunday.

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/
