Sylvia and I are still working on our song: "Time Machine". I've been learning and practicing the drum part for a couple of weeks now. One of the 3 (electronic) Snare Drums I'm using has been extra difficult. Not difficult for me to "play" but difficult in not being able to get the sound I'm after from the technology we're using. (I'm not hearing the accents that I'm playing on that particular drum, which is in my "Roland Octapad".) Over the last 3-days alone, I've gone over:
- the types of sounds I'm using on that drum pad,
- the different settings for the 2-sounds I'm using on that 1 drum pad,
- the various settings which tell the computer in the Octapad "when" and "when not" to produce the sound, etc.
Although I have 5 different "types" of electronic drum pads, only 1 of them, a "Roland V-Drums" pad, will reliably play anything I throw at it. Because I really want to play the entire drum part for this song "live", I have to use 1 of the pads on the Octapad for that particular Snare Drum sound.
Today, my selection of sounds for the drum part, went a bit sideways… 2 of the Snare Drum sounds I'm now using are more "bell-like" than a typical Snare Drum. The bell-like sound on 1 of them even bends down a bit.
When I listened back to the entire song, I began to wonder if I simply got carried away and didn't stick to what Sylvia wanted for this song. Later in the day today, though, I added a very rough "melodic" / "harmonic" Track to this song and everything started to fit together better than I expected.
- Although the structure and "most" of the sounds are in-place, we still have to refine and re-record the Vocal and Drum Tracks and then "I" have to completely figure out the notes and rhythm for the melody and harmony.
Here's the link to the Octapad, in case someone wants to know more about what this is (scroll down, on the following page, for a few short videos of how it's used):
