One of my favorite plugins out there is the FM8 by Native Instruments, and what better way to spend your sunday afternoon than to watch some cool tutorials on how to work with this beast!
Mac Pro Video is a great site for video tutorials on all kinds of music, video and other creative software on a mac. David Earl aka SFLogicNinja made this cool series about the FM8, and it has some good solid tips on how to create your own sounds. Check out one free video here.
Just came home from the studio, really had a blast today with my dad’s old electronic drum kit ( Roland TD-7 ) and Native Instruments 70’s Drummer. Hooked it up via midi and banged a track or two for my coming album, really fun to do, and it sounds amazing!
One of the new tracks I’m working on features some heavy driving tom tom rhythms and doing the whole take live really gives it an edge, I can recommend it to everyone. Also it’s been a while since I’ve been drumming, almost 7 years now since I quit the band I was playing in at the time, and playing now gives me a wicked amount of energy.
So, expect some live drumming on the album and during my tour!
This is so awesome! Just downloaded it to my phone, it offers a great way to make beats on the go and plug it in to the full Maschine in the studio to work on it further!
