Programming MIDI Drum Rolls


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm wondering how I can program MIDI drum rolls like in this track at 0:22 -

 

Kygo is a great producer and I'm constantly looking for tips and tricks as to how to produce different elements similar to his in tracks so I can develop my production skills.

 

If anyone can help that would be great and would help anyone else out looking for the same thing!

 

Thanks

There are no drum rolls in this track. At 0.22 I only hear regular (not rolling) conga's/bongo's/tungu's/pingu's. Those are best programmed using your body (you gotta move it move it). Anything with percussion pads or even keys from a MIDI keyboard, and just hit those sweet "trommeltjes"!

Agreed with Eriksimon, but I think the OP's post says a lot about the effect of mixing.

Some of us just hear the processing as cheesy 80s reverb, whereas some people who might not have their production hat on at the moment hear them as something more organic.

 

The sound themselves are nothing special. They're on any old Casio workstation, but the choice is very appropriate for what he's doing, both rhythmically and tonally.

 

Here's a massive, LEGAL torrent with all sorts of sounds, including a slew of old workstation percussion sounds!
