Here's another new take on an old idea.    strum,pick,hammer on...dude.

This is what MIDI is really about...  All those keyboard players really don't understand...  *FEEL* the music and get *inside* it.  *MAKE* it.  I might not like the style but it's definitely making music.

Right on plj !  So many cups of tea these days.Of course,not many of us would buy this,but cool to see.Great for controlling loops & DJ style performing.On other videos,he triggers video,too.I like the way he has control parameters on it,not just notes & loops.That lo pass filter mod - got to use that for this style.He's a nice guy,too.Ask him if he can set up 50 cymbals - he'll let us know.   ;)  Got the air drums down.  :)

One of our own kind - a malletKat.  Didn't know where to post this.Hope you guys don't mind - plj.

Never seen a pop (?) act use the MK as the real MAIN instrument like this song.He has a nice sustaining pad sound layered under the vibes.I wonder what modules he is using ? And if you don't like the song or style.....well...you can always gawk at the lovely singer.   :-*

Might as well put this in here.
I saw this duo  DJ/drummer last week.Killer duo,killer light & video wall.The Dj has some sort of launchpad & I know he is using Ableton Live....live.....The drummer is stripped down & mostly handles the beat.Pretty Lights is their name & their lights are pretty,too.These guys are headlining at Red Rocks this summer.This was last year & they were openers then.

Thanks orb, that was great. Nice to have a live drummer in as well. I think the launch pad thing he has is a Monome. They look like a lot of fun.

Any of you guys hear about Pat Metheny's current tour ? He's a one man band like we've never seen.Mechanical - NOT electronic,in the end.AMAZING !  :o

I think I posted this artist/controller before.Here is a new video. Some cool 'air drum' style controller for Dj-ing & edrumming. Plus...nice dancers.    :o
Keep it clean people......I'm looking at you......3rd method in the title...... :-\

Wow. The Pat Metheny thing is incredible. Almost an actual version of Animusic.

I cannot imagine the amount of time to put that together and pull it off.

Talk about an example of patience.

So true! I am not patient either and admire what has been done! Not bad at all.

You will undoubtedly see a whole lot a lot more amazing controllers being circulated inside the almost future.Although their capability to render musical performances simpler,I'm not too certain about that aspect.
 
Percussion has got to feel struck - typically by give or maybe go with.You spoke about 'air drums' in right here,too.Is it considered percussion to strike an unique concealed trigger ? Minimal contact is made,but 'something' will be caused.Remember though....try a buzz roll in which...or any type of type of go with drag...It tends impractical for classique design drumming.No way you are able to play because fast without go alongside bounce,correct ? So perhaps some different proficiency can be utilized.....however at purely this point .... e drums & drums tend to feel hit alongside sticks (or maybe perhaps hands).Call it precisely what we want...but we regularly 'strike' a padding,button,etc.  Every controller accessible to choose from (for drummers) really works along these lines.
Alternative notation methods tend to feel everywhere.In Using the internet Performer there tend to feel about 4 techniques to see musical information.Still,none render it much easier to 'read' or perhaps carry away better.It strictly depends in what type of note (data) design really works best for almost any holder when enhancing.Software can be acquired today what kind of scans standard notation & inputs it into a sequencer track.At which aim,it can feel midi information,or any notation kinds within the sequencer.

Actually, wouldn't most drummers tend to play air drums faster because they don't really aim at anything, per se. They just move their sticks in habitual patterns. So, playing air drums in some kind of field picking up movements could be considerably faster than on solid surfaces.

As far as buzz rolls, you make a good point. On the other hand, how much of modern music, pop music, ever employs a buzz roll? Literally tens of thousands of drummers out there never play buzz rolls in the music they operate in. An air drum controller would suit their needs just fine, I should think.
