Magical time and painful time to be alive.

Magical time and painful time to be alive.

During the #Nixon #Watergate period, there were no living Presidents. During this #Trump era, there are five living Presidents, two Republican, three Democratic, all of which have now come out against a current sitting President. Let that sink in for a while.

Thinking about swapping out some Toms for more cymbals. But I like the rolloff from left to right across the concert Toms to the floor Toms. Seven in all. Too much? Phill Collins had six. I would prefer another cymbal. Eventually having the #TD50 would be awesome. #Roland #VDrum #Drum #Drums #Drummer #Drumming #Composing

Well I now have the Kick, Snare, and the seven Toms mapped. But just the heads. No rim shots yet. Here is what I posted earlier: I am using @presonus #Notion as my compositional notation software. I like the way I can move around from iPad to Mac. I am using #MakeMusic #Garritan Personal Orchestra #GPO5 for my Symphony instruments and @roland_us #TD30 and #AddictiveDrums for my #percussion The down side is that it took me a while to figure out how to remap the MIDI notes so that Notion would send the right notes to Roland while at the same time staying consistent with the standard percussion Staff layout. Out the box the notes sent from Notion range from D0 to B3 and still none of the right instruments were played. I went into instrument mode and locked the TD30 and then put Notion into an endless loop and then changed the MIDI note until I found note 64(F4) as the note being sent to control the kick drum. I have seven, yes, seven TOMS on my TD30 and then have the rims on a few set to add more Cymbols. This will be an interesting configuration. #garritanpersonalorchestra #composing #compositional #songwriting #amwriting #novel #screenplay #author #symphony #violins #cello #drums #drummer #drumming

Cold and nasty. Hate this. I’m not a cold weather person.
