  1. @MrMichaelSchwark Ha ha. Can’t believe you said Betty. That’s the very
    album i own. The only Helmet album. Just had to put in on. Lol. Thanks for
    offering to help out in the future. Wilma’s Rainbow….. class song!!

  2. @rabbb78 Hi there, first of all, thx for the compliments and I am glad you
    dig that. I actually used the EZ Drummer Expansion ROCK/ POP. What you have
    to know is that all the EZ Drummer Expasions CAN be combined with Superior
    Drummer as well.

    Do you use a stereo cinch cable? If so, you would not want to double
    tracks! The panning itself is defined with the signal out!

  4. Michael Schwark

    Hey Cal! Just make sure to open configuration and choose a proper audio out
    setup. You might also want to look for asio4all audio drivers to reduce
    latency to a max! Have fun!

    @dreaminginnoother heyhey, unfortunately i dont knwo whether this is better
    or not in ableton. this track here i recorded simply by listening to the
    guitar track on headphones and playing along it, it was a quick number as i
    lacked time back then, unfortunately, because i love the track. it was one
    of the last songs of my former band, thebrokenfaithinsaints, there is a
    live version on yt, if you like to hear a comparism to that, just type
    thebrokenfaithinsaints + untitled!

  6. Michael Schwark

    Yeah, hahaha. I know, this is somewhat akward. My English has been better
    once. Nevertheless..glad I could help! It took me some time to get used to
    working with this kind of equipment! Buena suerte!

    I have a td-4, and i am trying to use AD sounds in midi because they sound
    better than the roland sets on my module. The issue I have though, is
    comping tracks in midi is a pain in the ass. Is that not true for ableton,
    or are you just so good you don’t need to comp tracks?

  8. Ah i see. so the snare sound isn’t actually being generated by the TD-12
    drum brain. Ok. Shame, that’s just the sound i’m looking for really. That
    sort of Helmet / early Silverchair sound. Ideally, i want the Tomas Haake
    (from Meshuggah) snare sound. Unfortunatly i don’t have any sample software
    or any means of recording yet. I know nothing about linking the TD-12 to a
    PC. I merely have a custom kit on TD-12 of sounds that i like. Looking
    forward to learning all this stuff in the future though.

    @rabbb78 Well, yeah, hell, Wilma is a great track, buuuuuuuuut you should
    def. give Strap it On and Meantime a chance. One of their most underrated
    albums is the very album after which they split (waht a shame) – it’s
    called Aftertaste and it defines a new standard of rock drumming!

  10. Michael Schwark

    @rabbb78 It’s funny you mention the snare, because only for the snare I
    created an X-Drum inside SD, which means I routed the original ROCK/ POP
    snare to a snare sample which is part of another SD expansin kit. In this
    case it is namely a Ludwig piccolo snare out of the Allaire Expansion
    (available only for SD, not EZD).

    @Russ88765 Hey Russ! Well, there might be an official DEMO, please refer to
    google and look up the Toontrack website. If there is no DEMO I suggest
    buying EZDrummer for a first try and test SD at a local store. Before
    buying you should try BFD2, too. It might meet your sound expectations a
    little more than SD does, I don’t know but would actually suggest comparing
    both. Greetz from Berlin!

    @rabbb78 I know exactly what you mean. I started the same way, half a year
    ago. Biut I promise you, it’s easy as hell. Choose a sequencer (Ableton 8
    is great!), buy an external sound device and a MIDI cable…start
    experimenting. I am in the holy search for the grail, too :-). I am looking
    for the betty snare sound (Helmet). Well, I am somewhat close now
    but…it’s not sharpen enough…I’ll surely get it some day, I know. If you
    need help in the future…I get back here many times a week!

  13. Michael Schwark

    Hey there! Usually I play on click. I stop when realizing I am not on beat
    and start from the scratch. If I do not care I just jam and then I usually
    just decide by heart what to keep and what to trash. You could watch some
    of my TD12 vids to get an ompression where this kind of working method
    leads. I would not want to give bad advice :-)!

  14. Michael Schwark

    @rabbb78 …you should google parallel compression and learn how to mix it,
    quite easy, if i can do that, you can do that, too. i am a technical idiot!

  15. I thought the TD-12 sounded quite good until i heard the SD2 sounds. I have
    to get SD2 now. What was the TD-12 snare sample and settings you used on
    this video? Thanks Great drumming by the way!.

  16. Ben den Drijver

    i could really use your help. i bought a MIDI cable for my Roland TD-3
    drumkit to record my drums with MIDI. i also have Ableton live, but i
    really don’t know where to start… when i plugin my device (it has the
    correct drivers) Live can see it but when i ‘Arm’ the drum track it doesn’t
    give any response. can you please help me out here? thanks!

  17. @MrMichaelSchwark Ableton Live 8 itself can lower the latency with an
    integrated MIDi latency function, quite cool in my eyes. If you have
    further questions, just let me know!
