An Amazing Collab with Heavy in Hawaii & More Site Updates

Yesterday I released probably one of the best collaborations to date that I have ever been a part of.  It’s no suprise that the drum cover I did of Type O Negative’s “I Don’t Wanna Be Me” is my favorite release and when I was sent a rough mix sample of this song for a collaboration, I was floored!  It’s not everyday you can find someone who sings with such a deep bass range like Peter Steele but I just heard it!  You have to check this video out to believe it!  Additionally, this guys guitar work, keyboards, and shit, even video production was awesome.  It was a real pleasure doing this collaboration and hope to do many more in the future with him.

Check out his channel with his version of the video and watch until the end where he gives a recap on the collaboration.

Here on the site, you may notice things seem a little different.  I have spent some time refreshing the page, changing the overall theme, removing some old sections, and adding a FAQ section.  I did some major work on the downloads page, fixing many of the actual Superior Drummer 3 project files, and uploading a couple new ones.  The previous uploads of my SD3 projects were configured for how I use them in my DAW and this might not work out very well for people who download them.  So now, this has been fixed and I also fixed some BPM issues in a couple that were never set in the project file.  My bad!  😏 

I am very close to start filming another drum cover.  The practice sessions have been almost flawless with 1 or 2 mistakes; so I plan to shoot this video before Thanksgiving.  Aside from that, have a great Thanksgiving and leave a comment on that collaboration video if you haven’t already!  🤘🙏

Collab with Cavemen from Finland & some other updates

Doing some work here on the website today.  Finally getting around to updating my SD3 Projects spreadsheet, which I don’t think I have ever displayed here on the actual website.  Basically it’s a detailed catalog of what Toontrack expansions I used for all my drum covers.   Why would you need this information?  You probably don’t but if you DO download one of my SD3 projects, you may need the expansion I used if you want it to sound the same.  You can check out that spreadsheet here.  I have this also linked on each download page entry for quick access as well.

On Satuday October 9th, I released a collaboration video with some boys from Findland called Cavemen At Work.  I was contacted by the bassist about the drum cover I did for the Ghost song Ritual wondering if they could use my drumming and video for a video they were putting together.  I agreed.  They ended up on using the MIDI information for their version of the song on their channel but they were gracious enough to send me their drumless audio so I can re-mix my actual drum audio back in.  You can check out my version of the collaboration video here.

I have another drum cover video in process now and looking to upload on or near Halloween.  It’s theme based…so you can only guess as to who it is I am covering.  🤣😂
