Little Q.
Are 03 SiDeKiCk1.nki and 04 SiDeKiCk2.nki SQs made inside Kontakt that we don't have access to?
Can't hear exactly what you guy's are saying.
Don't see SQ or Arpeggiator tabs on those neither.
May be just single hits over the keyboard played via preprogrammed DAW's SQs?
Anyway, congrats for this other one of a kind instrument!
Thanks Nordi
The drum computer is a script object that anyone can access by clicking on the spanner (wrench) tool and then opening the script window where you will find the drum computer tab. It's a bit complicated and so for simplicity's sake we decided not to offer it as a separate tab on the gui but it is completely editable under the bonnet (hood).

Just FYI if you want to use the drum computer on any other instrument you will find the script living in the preset dropdown menu and then within the sequencing folder.

Many thanks for the reply.
This drum sequencer looks pretty neat (forgot about it).
So then we’r talking about single hits played via this SQ.
Sounds great!

Yeah, that's right. You can have 12 sequences (one octave), triggered by notes on your keyboard per instance of Drum Computer. Each sequence can be made up of up to 12 patterns of 16 or 32 steps each. So each note triggers a new sequence but you can only play one at a time. You will see with Bass banjo we used two instances of the Drum Computer so you can play patterns from each of those two instances together.
One thing worth noting is to alter the velocity levels of your patterns or they hammer away pretty hard. It's a great function that a lot of people are not familiar with. It's worth spending some time figuring out.
I tried to find a tutorial online to post here but couldn't find one. Maybe when we get some time we'll make one.

Great. Always good to hear how people us our stuff.
Cheers David. It was a very quickly put together idea - just wanted to share it. The Bass Banjo is such a creative instrument/s and I appreciate the thought & work you have put into this.

For this price this is a complete no-brainer! What a magnificent sound!
Yeah, and it's as "non-digital" as a digital instrument can be. If you want truly raw, earthy, grass-roots sounds MW is great. I think of an irreverant proto-punk, folk rock band like The Fugs, from long ago. They would love this Bass Banjo if they were transported to this era and using sample libraries.

Fan-bloody-tastic. Loving the mojo in this piece. Giving me chills.
I was totally waiting for Nick Cave or Tom Waits voice to start up halfway in.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm thinking of licensing this track - think it would sit well with some visuals.
Do it…


BTW Disclosure: I'm involved in the Dev of the Bass Banjo, so if you have any feedback … Please feel free to let us know!
