...brassbanding of Frost
Well, I'd give it a listen.

I was referring to the FFTCM cover that had the brassy bit at the start ;)

Aye, that's done the rounds ;)

Armed with the knowledge of Jem's disbanding/rebanding/brassbanding of Frost, some of those questions sure do make for interesting reading.

I've always thought milliontown should be shorter and it is hard to read, that sometimes, it's just been played to satisfy the blood lust of the wizards.

Announcements / Dec should know

Just been watching the TDL Frost report where Jem trundles along to Mr. Burkes house.

Much to my surprise I instantly recognised the landscape outside his window (I won't give the game away :P) as I've recently tested the water in that there pond for part of my Geography degree.

Just thought Dec should know that the system is doing it's job nicely ;)

Any other prog wizard related anecdotes?  :lol:

Ok I'm gonna say it.

I haven't listened to a single song (save calling all the heroes) by any of these bands but I surely do feel like I should have.
From what I can gather, this is a helluva festival for proggers.

But where to start?

I like dark, and electronic. Rocky but not too cheesy. I can do soft songs but they have to have an edge.

Any suggestions? :twisted:


Rubbish, I saw Pallas at High Voltage and quite enjoyed them  :lol:

Ok back on topic: ... -hits.html

TL;DR version,

dude has problems with midi drumkit, double triggers, sustained notes etc. Goes to shop, gets same problem with all electric kits.
Problem is cheap chinese midi cable (Guilty :D)

Kicker is that the cable works fine with his keyboards.

Oh wait I have to spend money to fix this?

It is a bit of silly it is....

...but never mind that!

Did you know Cams can also be viewed as information-storing and -transmitting devices. Examples are the cam-drums that direct the notes of a musical box or the movements of a screw machine's various tools and chucks. The information stored and transmitted by the cam is the answer to the question, "What actions should happen, and when?" (Even an automotive camshaft essentially answers that question, although the music box cam is a still-better example in illustrating this concept.)

Quite fitting.

And what a contribution it is!

(Perhaps a missing link? :P )

Sometimes it's sickening how helpful this forum is  :D

I think we'll probably only need the Metal Foundry one. Does it have "Oil can snare drum" on it? Let's use that and just pitch shift it for all the drums a la Metallica :P

I can confirm a factory reset has done nothing for the issue. Thanks for all the help but I feel my personal issue is derailing the thread a little (and potentially some of the creative processes) so I think I will the resign the midi approach.

However, I'd still love to create some "real" electric drum recordings which maybe you guys could get midified on the more realistic sounding vst's?

Onwards and progwards!  :D


Just a quick afterthought, how much affect would a faulty midi cable have? I can't say I invested all that much in it  ;)

Thanks Pedders, playing the midi file in WMP shows that the proper strokes aren't coming through at all. A snare roll of about 5 seconds will just get 2 snare hits at 2 seconds in and then at 4 (for example) but at least there's no piano noises now  :roll:


Forgot the midi file, its in my file called "roll". It is *supposed* to be 2 bars of quarter notes on snare, htom, mtom, ltom and then a 3rd bar of 16ths on the same. As you will see the simple notes come out fine but the 16ths just get that first snare hit and then nothing...

Cor blimey what a load to get my head around this early in the morning :D
Thanks so much for your help though. So far:

I have made sure all drum pads are channel 10.
Changed the drum kit settings to produce note off signals
Made sure all the voices are assigned to the correct midi notes.

The result so far:

It is a lot more reliable, I can now record single midi notes with ease.

However, there are occasional notes that are still getting "stuck" as if they are being held down and only really simple things can be recorded, double strokes for example just will not trigger or will only trigger the sample once.... :(

Ah now that makes more sense to me. It's not a case of the note not being read by kontakt, its that the midi is sometimes mapping to other notes that are way out of the drum kit range....I think.

It's exactly this that put me off joining in with the first FFCS! Harumph!  :lol:

I've put the midi file and the rendered file in my box space.

Interestingly with the midi file, the voices change even though I'm hitting just snare, High tom, mid tom, floor tom....

Thanks for the super fast response guys  :D

Pedro: Yes basically not all notes are triggering. Say I did a drum fill at a constant speed at a constant velocity, not all the notes seem to trigger. I think maybe you are on to something with the retriggering or polyphony. I opened the little Kontakt player keyboard and some of the notes are held down like a chord.....

Dan: I am fairly certain all the channels are right as I do hear the correct sounds in the correct places *some* of the time. As for the second suggestion.....huh? :P I am quite new to this (I bought the cable so I could take part in the FFCSV2) so I'm not too sure what the first bit meant. The event list mode I found but there seems to be an awful lot to delete if i understand "non-note" correctly.


Right definitely not the input as exporting the midi file and playing that in windows media player plays every single note (even though its a nice mixture of midi piano and drums)
