Today now what we want to look at is using a MIDI drum kit I have one back there we’re gonna look at using that today and we’re gonna look at how we can get the midi sounds from the drum kit into the banding lab and we’re gonna test it out and see if Bandlab is actually able to record all of the MIDI hits I’ve got a series of four different parts right now using band lab and using the different effects that you can have a look at and I’ll link the playlist above there for you to have a look at other than that I want to thank you for being here if you would do me a favor and hit the like.
We’re just gonna have a look here at our Yamaha DTxplorer kit and we’re gonna see if it’s able to record into Bandlab and we’ll try it on an Android device first and see how it handles the midi data coming out of the Yamaha DT Explorer into a MIDIinstrument in-band lab itself we’re gonna use them-audio uno and we’re going to connect that to our four-port anchor USB hub so we’ll make that connection here okay and then we’ll plug that in check the green light, okay and then the only other thing is I’m going to connect this audio cable
I can get the sound coming in and out of there okay we’ll put the metronome on great goback here, hit drums add my classic rock kit, and should be good to go here now the only other thing I’m going to do is just solo my kit here terrible terrible terrible try me bring that down and there are our hits let’s see what it sounds like okay so we’re gonna have to figure out which drums were which here so if I open that up hit edit okay there’s our hits I’m not convinced it grabbed everything so it doesn’t look like the banding lab Android version actually recorded the hits.
That were missing my bass drum my snare it completely missed those so there’s no way for you to actually copy and paste and move them around as you could GarageBand which kind of sucks because it would be nice if they included that now what we should do is have a look at an iOS device and see if it actually grabs it there that would be interesting to see if the iOS version is different in that it takes the extra MIDI then the banding lab on Android so we’ll doublecheck that really quickly here we use the same song we’ll just add another track.
We can differentiate but see what happened there no looks like it did the exact same thing as the Android version took all the hits that it didn’t know and it didn’t dump them on top of existing drum tracks so in that one that’s a win for Garage Bandit takes all the MIDI hits and just puts them in a pool and separates them still for you to edit later the only other option you have is using the web version of bandwidth so wanted to thank you for checking this out and seeing if we could map the Yamaha DTX using band lab.
I think we’re gonna have success there because in the web version they have a tool called MIDI mapping which allows you to map different hardware controllers that you may be using and set the maps to the MIDI instrument that you want to use inside aband lab web version so I’m hoping that they’ll maybe add MIDI mapping to the android and iOS apps as a feature down the road using the e drums as we used maybe it doesn’t work so well maybe it’s just my particular set because it’s an older set probably the newer Verte newer sets or newer electronic drums.
Would doa better job at it maybe some of the new Alesis nitro kits or some of the new Roland v-drums probably even some of the newer Yamaha electronic drum kits would do a better job than mine’s fairly old so if you weren’t sure you can check in the manual of your electronic drum kit at the MIDI mapping and that you can edit those on the electronic drums and you can edit them so that they match up with the electronic MIDI notes that are being sent and that band lab recognizes.
That way you can compare the two and make sure that whatever electronic drum you have that you’re able to actually edit the MIDI notes coming out of the drum module and then going into Ben lab that way they’ll sync up and you won’t have the issues that I was able to have with using the old Yamaha DT Explorer the next article we are now at the dawn major evolution in the world of drums. With my team, we have developed a brand new type of product that will change things.
I am proud to present you with Senspad. the first wireless and scalable connected drum pad. Connects Senspad on your smartphone, tablet, or computer and start playing without constraint. You will be able to practice follow and share your progression on the drums. Upgrade instantly an acoustic drum kit into a connected one, set up your own transportable drum kit by adding several pads, and use Senstroke sensors to also play with your feet without any wires and any power outlet.
High-End Electronic Drum:
The comfort of playing, the precision, the latency, and the easiness of usage have been our priorities. Our system is hybrid you can therefore use it in wireless mode or if you prefer in wired mode. The pad is very light, resistant, and offers three areas of strikes that you can of course edit. Senspad generates midi signals and displays an autonomy of more than 12hours of play without having to recharge it. Senspad is the second product we are launching two years after the success of Sunstroke. Your support and ideas will help us to offer the best project possible. So be the first in the world to take advantage of this revolution and be actors of change.
