|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.
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! ??
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. ??
