    Ableton Live 11Cymbal Choking FIX for nearly any e-drum module πŸ™‚πŸ‘‰


    (other than shown here (LINK 1* + LINK 2**)) I've found a way to make Cymbal Choking available in Ableton Live 11 with anyRoland (or eDRUMin or ATV module (or even most Yamaha modules) β€ΌπŸ‘πŸ˜Š
    (so not only the supported modules shown in LINK 1 ( = TD 30/50/27/... ) are supported with my new FIX but also modules like TD-17/11/9/1/15/25 !)



    And of course it works with any 3rd-party drum sampler that supports Cymbal Choking (so not only "SD3" like shown in LINK 2)



    Of course it works also with AL Sampler or Drumracks ... but that's not new.



    And for users of Roland modules like TD 50/27/30/20/... (LINK 1) (-who of course can also use this FIX!-) there is an additional very cool aspect: You won't have to alter any module settings! - so there is no need to change "Gate Time" for each cymbal note (as mentioned with the Ableton Drummer FIX) and not generating long cymbal midi notes will also be better for recording midi drums
    In addition with this FIX you will be able to choke super long ringing cymbal sounds after 8 seconds (this was the limit with the "GateTime" FIX shown in LINK 1).




    The FIX is using the ingenious modular DAW "Plogue Bidule" as an additional tool (Bidule is super inexpensive and one of the most powerful audio software tools I know).



    ENJOY😊

    Roland Digital Hihat "VH-14D" <-> Superior Drummer 3 - Positional Sensing ZONES : all combinations and options
    I.E. setting up a VH-14D BELL zone ( --> SD3 Hihat Bell articulations) possible for the first time πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘‰
    How many ZONES will I get? ---> SIX β€Ό




    What ZONES exactely? ---> EDGE left ; EDGE right ;; BOW left ; BOW right ;; (near) BELL left ; (near) BELL right




    Can I use the VH-14D Bell and the "near BELL" zone for Superior Drummer 3 Hihat Bell articulations?

    ---> Yes !!! As you can of course define the size of this zone on the pad (and make it quite small) you can really have a kind of hihat bell (for the first time with a Roland hihat pad!)




    When ordering these VH-14D Positional Sensing SD3 project(s) for my DAW, can I choose L-R or (near) Bell zone feature only?
    ---> Sure!




    Will all these Positional Sensing Zones also work with the "Superior Drummer 3 - Hihat Engine FIX" (the Transition Artifact + Fast Stepping FIX) ?

    ---> YES, combining it will work properly! πŸ‘
    (even also with the Hihat Engine toggle (while playing)?) ---> YES




    ENJOY β€ΌπŸ™‚

    Roland Digital Hihat "VH-14D" --> Positional Sensing (also LEFT<->RIGHT hand distinction) - Software Drumming INTEGRATION πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘‰


    You want to benefit from the new Roland 'VH-14D' Postitional Sensing features when playing your drum samplers?

    [ = conventional Positional Sensing (towards BELL vs. towards EDGE)

    and additional Left<->Right Positional Sensing ‼️ ]



    --> no problem! Possible NOW πŸ‘ even with drum samplers other than 'Superior Drummer3'! via a workaround. (If you are a SD3 e-drummer: -> Of course I can easily set it up in your SD3 projects if you struggle with it πŸ™‚).

    (as most software drum samplers still lack [L<->R] and [towards BELL vs. towards EDGE] Hihat samples you can easily audio tweak the hihat sounds in order to get a slight difference. (For the [towards BELL] Positional Sensing zone you can even use Hihat Bell sounds if they are available. -> So you can finally make a Roland Hihat pad compatible with Hihat Bell sounds!πŸ‘)

    This (especially the L<->R distinction! , IMO) will be a great benefit in terms of super authentical and lively hihat playing/ software sampler hihat sound...

    (of course you can also have big difference with an advanced, experimental "Keep It Unreal" approach!πŸ™‚)



    supported DAWs (basically for drum samplers other than SD3 (SD3 will also work without using a DAW)):

    "Cubase Artist/Pro" , "Logic Pro X" , "Reaper" , "Bidule" , "Ableton Live Suite".



    Enjoy! πŸ™‚

    eDRUMin (Audiofront's gorgeous Trigger module) Setup Service


    The eDRUMin TriggerToMidi device is super powerful + comfortable and at the same time super inexpensive - so it's definitely a great choice for any e-drummer (especially for A2E players) and will even work nicely as an additional trigger input extension for players who are already using a Roland module as Trigger2Midi device but seeking more trigger inputs.

    The eDRUMin control app provides detailed and unique features.

    So if you need help on dialling in the eDRUMin in order to match your dream of an e-drum translation - get in touch: I can do this for you! and it can easily be done via remote-desktop

    ENJOY

    NEW GGD Hihat Engine Toggle for creative e-drummers πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘‰



    Switch (while you're playing!) between the following two Hihat Engines πŸ˜ƒ:
    • --> the normal FIXED (all bugs and shortcomings fixed!) Hihat Engine ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/5791...9221816324808/ ) featuring all availabe GGD Hihat articulations (at least integrating TIGHT + CLOSED EDGE articulations) + or in addition even playing the "Consistently controllable 2-closed-stages Variable Hihat" : https://www.facebook.com/groups/5791...2184129695241/ ................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ..................................................
    • --> the SPECIAL Hihat Engine : the pad's BOW will provide the normal Variable GGD "Tip" CC Hihat (of course with all bug fixes as described) and the pad's EDGE will be the GGD TIGHT EDGE articulation exclusively (no matter what the pedal controller position is). This setting can be super creative because an open hihat sound (from BOW hits) will be muted with an EDGE hit. --> Great when playing DoubleBass parts and it's also super cool to be able to achieve a fast alternation between TIGHT EDGE and Pedal CHICK sounds.


    Of course you'll have the option to toggle both Hihat Engines after your creative needs while you're playing (by hitting a dedicated controller pad zone (like a Tom rim)that functions as a switch) πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘



    Available for the DAWs: "Cubase Artist/Pro" , "Logic Pro X" , "Reaper" , "Bidule" , "Ableton Live Suite"


    Interested? or any questions? -> Post an answer or send a PM please.

    NEW GetGood Drums ("GGD") Snare FIX feature: Snare Engine toggle available now πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘‰


    You already know about the GGD Snare Drum FIX

    "GGD snare drum "CENTER" <-> "RIMSHOT" separation" ? πŸ‘‰

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/5791...6241668956156/



    Well, having it separated (only the HEAD articulation on the center head of the snare pad) suits well for many musical situations/demands (when you do not want 'disturbing' Rimshots).

    But there are also playing situations or musical demands when you would want the original engine with the RIMSHOTSat high velocities.



    So here comes GOOD NEWS! - Having it both is possible NOW! :

    -> just swap the engines with a padstroke (while playing)! 😊 (-> define a dedicated pad zone (like a (Floor)Tom Rim) which will function as a switch)



    - When playing the "Separated" Engine you'll have the whole dynamical range of Snare Center Head samples translated to the whole MIDI velocity range. Also, the Snare volume level has been adjusted to fit and match the Original Engine.

    RIMSHOTS and (if wanted at lower incoming velocities) SIDE STICK articulations are available on the RIM of the snare pad.

    -- vs.--

    - When switching back to the "Original" Engine you'll have the default Snare behavior with RIMSHOTS triggered by high velocities. And of course on the rim of the pad the exclusive RIMSHOTS and (if wanted at lower incoming velocities) SIDE STICK articulations stay available or you can have the SIDE STICK exclusively.



    I'm absolutely sure: being able to switch to both Snare translation options is a super great benefit and your snare sound will fit all musical demands.



    Enjoy ‼️ πŸ™‚

    Consistently controllable 2-closed-stages Variable Software Drumming Hihat without annoying Pedal "Chicks" πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘‰


    Have you ever dreamed of a consistently controllable 2-closed-stages Variable CC Hihat with no annoying Pedal "Chicks" disturbing the closed range?
    Well, no problem: this is now possible with a dedicated Hihat translation FIX!




    There are basically 2 closed Hihat stages/articulations on most drum samplers:

    1. the TIGHT and 2. the CLOSED ("normal" pressure -> not tightly closed) articulation.



    I've always wished to be able to control them in an easy and constistent/reproducable way without getting annoying and unwanted Pedal "Chicks" disturbing the quite large CC value range (or call it pedal motion range) which is set up alone for the first two (closed) stages. This large and significantly increased value range is achieved by value remapping and will be necessary to consistently control the 2 closed stages preventing that the slightest foot movement triggers an unwanted stage like a semi-open stage (especially when using a Roland FD-9 controller pedal. Regarding separated controller pedals please note that the FD-9 "spring tension feeling" provides a similar two stage closed feeling as for instance a VH-13 does (and this for the first time: it's not possible to consistently control it with FD-7, FD-8 or other pedals - so props to Roland here πŸ‘) :

    "Fully" depressing it with "normal" pressure --> CLOSED stage is triggered

    --vs.--

    again increasing pressure --> TIGHT stage is triggered.


    It's also important to significantly widen the TIGHT stage as you wouldn't want to reach it with super high foot pressure only πŸ˜‰.


    On the other hand: suppressing the Pedal "Chick" note in general would definitely be no solution as not being able to easily achieve a "Chick" is not wanted in many playing situations: I want to get the "Chick" every time I do an even quite soft 'open -> closed' movement and I even want to trigger fast double "Chicks" at all velocities.



    So I've build a FIX engine providing both: no disturbing Pedal "Chick" within the first two closed stages + being able to easily generate a "Chick" with a normal 'open -> closed' movement at all foot velocities.



    It's definitely a DREAM of a e-drum Hihat: this is the BEST you can get out of it️ ‼️



    You want this brilliant Hihat translation? -> Get in touch.


    ENJOY! 😊

    Superior Drummer 3 -- Snare Bleed for X-Drums workaround


    Example:

    You want to add an X-DRUM - Tom ...BUT you're missing the snare buzz from your main Snare? ( --> because by default there is no chance to get the main Snare to "bleed" when hitting the X-Drum kit piece...)


    All right, here comes GOOD NEWS : I've developed a workaround that gives you the wanted snare buzz from your main Snare


    Available in all DAWs and in SuperiorDrummer3 standalone

    Toontrack "Superior Drummer 3" Hihat Fix


    Video available showing the unwanted SuperiorDrumer3 hihat engine artifacts and the workarond engine fixing them.




    Playing e-drums with "Superior Drummer 3" is so much fun: super powerful features/possibilites and good-sounding and very versatile: there are sooo many expansion packs!


    Unfortunately the Toontrack hihat engine features one of two principles of function which will suffer from annoying transition artifacts (the transitions of the "OPEN-CLOSED stages") when playing the sampler with variable-CC-hihat-capable e-drum controllers (like "Roland" controllers on "Roland" modules).

    So I've developed a FIX: With it you can play the "Variable Hihat" without SuperiorDrummer3 processing any CC data! This will stop the unwanted behavior and sound artifacts.


    With the FIX you can of course also customize the variable hihat pedal translation and set open-closed-stages to be triggered by pedal positions of your choice and/or skip stages you don't want. Playing "fast hihat foot-stepping" will also be possible without any unwanted ringing.


    BTW: the original 'Superior Drummer 3 (/2)' hihat provides the same principle of function as "EZ Drummer 2" (also Toontrack) and also "Steven Slate Drums 5.5 ('SSD5')" so the transition artifacts of these drum samplers can also be fixed.

    ---

    Features:

    - You will have the option to toggle the Variable CC Hihat Engine with a pad stroke! :

    My workaround provides the ability to swap the hihat engine while playing (e.g. per pad stroke) : if you want to generate "Hihat Splashes" you'll be able to choose the original "Toontrack" engine (as it provides this feature and my engine doesn't) ; if you want to play fast "foot-stepping" and/or want to have a clean and artifact-free pedal behavior you'll have to switch to my clean hihat engine which won't allow transitions triggered by sheer hihat controller data.

    In the video I'm toggling between the original SuperiorDrummer3 Engine and my fixed Hihat Engine by hitting the rim of the Floor Tom pad.
    So you can watch what happens and how the hihat behaves with each of the engines!


    I'm showing the FIX using the Superior Drummer 3 stock library (default preset and state (and default hihat curve)).


    - PS: Also, my workaround significantly improves the "VHx" (Roland hihat system on hihat stand) issues whereupon stages are unwantedly triggered by the jolt downwards. This is because sheer CC data won't trigger open-closed-stages within my "clean" hihat engine.



    supported DAWs: "Cubase Artist/Pro" , "Logic Pro X" , "Reaper" , "Bidule" , "Ableton Live Suite"

    Ableton Live e-drum Cymbal Choking with Toontrack 'Superior Drummer 3' now available


    Unfortunately Ableton Live 9 + 10 (and also AL 11 along with e-drum modules like TD-9,-11,-15,-17,-25, eDRUMin, ATV, Alesis) does not recognize "PolyPressure" midi messages that are transmitted by most modules (like Roland) when manually choking cymbal pads. This makes Cymbal Chokes (at least in 3rd party drum samplers like SD3) completely unavailable.


    So here comes GOOD NEWS : I've developed a FIX using the ingenious modular DAW "Plogue Bidule" as an additional tool (Bidule is super inexpensive and at least in MIDI regards the most powerful tool I know).


    So combining AbletonLive and Bidule will make SuperiorDrummer3 e-drum cymbal choking available (SD3 inserted in AL) ‼️


    ENJOY!
