So, 2016 is nearly over and I feel like this year a lot of stuff happened in our world of digital drumming. The new drum sensor from Sunhouse was finally coming out, the Roland TD-50 came to light, numbers of smaller companies for drum triggers are popping up and so on – so lots of technical development which are great but make it hard to maintain the overview.
Sometimes I feel a bit like all this news about new things are driving me away of actually making music, spending a lot of time thinking about what and how you could develop new techniques with all these developments but not actually using them to express my creativity – do you make the same experience? What happend for you this year regarding playing drums and technology?
Ground-breaking things for me this year
I have to say for me this year wasn’t that much about new technology, more interesting for me was learning new stuff and more important connecting and exchange with new people. One result of this was starting the AbletonDrummer Facebook-Group, while attending Abletons Loop conference in Berlin this year.
Or finally starting to code in Max4Live, developing different patches, some especially for electronic drummers and some others, and through this connecting to a great community of people, who I can ask when I stuck. (Big THX to Tim from Soundmanufacture)
I started to collect subjects around Ableton-Drumming, which I think would be great for another online video course. It’s hard sometimes because I don’t get so much feedback from fellow drummers about what could be interesting or what information would be useful for them to cover – so If you have anything in mind,just drop me a mail! (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org) – and I will have a look if it will fit on my scrab book
