Hey all!

So here is Vol. 4 of the "Midi Drums Made Simple" series. In the first video, we saw how to extract audio from a guitar tab file and load it into our DAW of choice for further editing. In the second video we say how to use the "Humanize" tool to adjust the midi note placement on the grid to not feel so rigid (or like a drum machine). Finally, we got into the logic around adjusting the velocity of each hit for a more overall natural feel to the drum parts. In the third video we say how to create our own basic beats and fills.

In this fourth installment we will look at how we take existing free or retail midi drum loops and tailor them to meet the needs of our project or in THIS case, recreate the beats from the Motörhead classic, "Ace Of Spades".

Areas of focus will be:
• Selecting MII files that closely match the beats and fills you need
• How to edit MIDI notes on the piano roll to customize pre-existing loops
• How to randomize the patterns for more realistic performances
• Putting the pieces together to create the song

As I noted in the first few vid, there are a LOT of different ways to skin this MIDI drum cat, and this is an overview of how yours truly... "The Khed" does it!

Hope it helps and as always, keep checking back for more vids!
