Tascam DR22WL and iPadOS 13

Sooooooo, yep under #IpadOS13 I plug this into #iPad via USB3 to Lightning adapter, pops up on the #Tascam #DR22WL screen asking “Bus Power” or “Storage” I hit storage and lo and behold a new device appears in the Files app called DR22WL. Even tho this unit has Bluetooth transfer built in no need to bother with that anymore as you can power and transfer data from it to #iPad easily!!!

Modal Skulpt and IK Multimedia Uno Drum a potent pair

Modal Skulpt and IK Multimedia Uno Drum a potent pair to jam with run straight into my Tascam DR-22WL digital recorder. Thanks to iPadOS 13 I simply plugged the MicroSD card into a card reader attached to Apple’s USB3 to Lightning adapter and copied the audio file over. Gotta love the TINY Size of the Uno Drum and Modal Skulpt devices. Great for a quick tabletop jam. Please consider subscribing and giving us a thumbs up it helps a lot. Thanks for watching.

Modal Skulpt Tiny Powerful Synth

The #Modal #Skulpt sounds GREAT but having to set MIDI filtering messages via app is a bit of a PITA. Drove me crazy why no notes were playing. The previous owner must have set to filter them out. If using USB MIDI it worked fine. Other than that minor issue it’s a winner. If Modal drops price a bit Korg will have a BIG little competitor as it has MIDI in and out as well as USB MIDI, sync in and out, decent sized knobs, 4 voices and ability to #polychain 4 Skulpt’s together without requiring any special cabling.

Gear Acquisition Syndrome

Got GAS? Yes I do, looking at the Modal Skulpt 4 voice Synth and Behringer Deepmind 12D and a few others......... but hold on a minute there Babalouie I’ll do all the thinnin around here. 

Skulpt is $299.99 for a 4 voice Digital Synth, Deepmind 12D is $600ish for 12 voice Polyphonic.

Basic iPad is $329 add Synth One and Still $329 with more voices and a FREE DAW in the form of Garageband. Add FM player and D1 for a few bucks more and have a huge selection of Polyphonic sounds. 

Sure an app isn’t as SEXY as a new piece of gear but it is easier to store and easier on the wallet.

Perfect example was planning to get either another Korg Volca FM or a Yamaha Reface DX to have more FM Voices to record with but THINK for a moment and remember I have FM Player 2(Clueless how many Voice Polyphonic it is) that is I believe at least 8 voice Polyphonic per instance.


So Glad I grabbed an iPadPro a while back. I’ve run multiple copies of D1 and FM Player 2 in Garageband and Cubasis with no issue and even controlled them with my Toraiz Squid Sequencer. It’s a brave new world for musicians with limited space.

Toraiz Squid to Garageband fail

Major bummer, was HOPING to record separate Tracks to Garageband based on MIDI Channels of the Squid. Recorded a single mish mash of 3 tracks/midi channels to a single track. 

May need to resort to Laptop to export the MIDI then import to Garageband so I can use the fabulous Alchemy Synth.

Using an inexpensive audio splitter to split your MIDI outputs to Synths etc That little purple splitter came in VERY handy to send the output of the Novation Launchpad Pro signal to both the Korg Volca FM and my IK Multimedia Uno Synth. Used a nice Bass patch on the Uno and an “Oberheim” like Patch on the FM. This little video I shot showed me I should really grab the Solderless MIDI Out Adapter for the Volca FM so I can use it as a Sequencer for the Uno too since the Uno alas lacks the ability to chain patterns currently.

TC Helicon Perform VK and iPad Garageband

TC Helicon Perform VK and iPad Garageband work well together. The Perform VK works as a 4 in and 8 out USB Audio Interface as well as having effects like Harmony, Echo, Reverb and Pitch correction. Oddly Windows needs a device driver but Mac OSX and IOS devices it works as a Class Compliant device

VoxSyn for IOS is FUN

VoxSyn for IOS is FUN and sounds amazing. I was originally going to buy a Teenage Engineering PO-35 Speak for some fun with Vocals but glad I grabbed this instead. please give us a thumbs up and subscribe. Granted they not really that similar but at 1/10 the price this is is a lot of fun. Seems to be Universal too so iPad and iPhone both. Glad I found Jakob Haq video from when it was released to show me some of it’s features.

Pocket Operator Sub PO-14

Pocket Operator Sub PO-14 at least I was able to figure out chaining patterns. Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator’s tend to grate on my nerves with the 80’s video game like sound but this one seems possible to get some nice Bass out of it. May wind up with the PO-33 Sampler and PO-35 Speak Vocal Synth at some point. Glad to see LARGE text version of the Doc’s on their website. The folded paper one too tiny for my eyes. Believe it or not, I bought THIS instead of a Roland TB-3. Certainly MUCH easier on Pocket

Update to Acoustic Snare Drum to Electronic Drum

Converting my SPL Snare Drum into a 2 zone Electronic Drum on the cheap using piezo transducers, an Evans Soundoff Mesh Head and a Hosa Drum splitter. Plugging into an Alesis Nitro DM7X Drum Module to test it. Sit back relax and have a peek. It’s a pretty simple task and not very pricey especially if you already own a Drum you want to convert.



Trigger now epoxied to Neodymium magnet and a second magnet under the mesh head to keep the trigger in place. Want to give Epoxy 24 hours to cure fully before testing to see if it holds up to bashing on drum head.

My Electronic Drum set starting to shape up

Now that I have the right L-Rod’s things looking better. Still awaiting a section of Cymbal mount and using the Roland PD-8 for hi hat at moment. Still have a DM6 Snare I could use as a Fourth Tom since I got a Mesh Snare. I’ve got 2 Pintech TC-10 Cymbal’s, 3 DM6 Tom’s a DM6 Snare, a Nitro Mesh Snare, DMHat Hi Hat pedal and a Simmons Kick Pedal That fires down onto a small pad. Yes the PD-8 and Nitro Mesh Snare are sharing 1 L-Rod in the photo. Not pictured is a Alesis Nitro DM7X Drum Module and the second Pintech Cymbal n mount.

DIY 60 Cent NOT L Rods for Electronic Drums someone asked if the wood dowels would snap and so I decided to do this video to show if 3/8” wooden dowels would survive. I’m not really a drummer so some of you may hit like THOR!!!! but I am not exactly dainty and whack on them pretty good. only the 2 Tom’s are using these DIY rods. Please give us a thumbs up if you enjoyed this and subscribe. Thanks for watching.

Alesis Nitro and Apple iPadPro

Ok folks, as you noticed I’ve been messing with #Alesis Nitro DM7X and Electronic Drum Pads hooked to my #iPadPro. I’m able to play the Acoustic Drum sets in #Garageband. Synth sounds in #AudioKit FM Player. I had issues with the Percussion sounds like #Bongo and #Conga in Garageband. They ARE triggerable too. Happy to say that they simply map to higher #MIDI notes than the Acoustic Drums.

Here’s the list of MIDI Notes for you folks.

———-
Cowbell - 56
Bongo - 60-61
Conga - 62-66
Maracas - 68-69
Blocks/Claves- 75

Triangle - 80-81

Alesis HiHat pedal to trigger Kick Drum

Mad Scientist mode, trying to figure way to trigger this #Alesis High Hat pedal to use as a Kick Drum Trigger. I think the wood block too tough tho. Dug thru my drawer and found a nice rubber eraser. Going to attach with tape to test. Crossing fingers. Video to follow if all goes well. Also looking at replacing a part up front with rubber block.
