It’s been two years since my last Milkytracker and Drummer video, but now the time has finally come for a new one! This track is called, Cherry Red Lips, and I made all the samples and music within Milkytracker on a 2004 iBook G4 1.42ghz. I then recorded the drums in Pro Tools 7.4 with an Mbox 1 also on the iBook. The video was created in Kdenlive on Ubuntu 18.04LTS on my Dell Gaming Inspiron 5k Drums used: Tama Imperialstar Bop (2015 discontinued, 18″ kick, 12/14 toms, 14 snare. Heads, Toms/Snare – Aquarian Studio X https://amzn.to/2Q2DlBZ Kick – Aquarian Superkick 1 https://amzn.to/2D9J06z Sticks – Aquarian X10 https://amzn.to/2Q0mGPp Mics (kick and overhead) Nady RSM-5 https://amzn.to/2DcvD5m
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.
I just wanted to share with you this easy way to make your own samples right within MilkyTracker.
