Drum Mappings

Postby GeldartM » Fri Aug 09, 2019 1:05 pm

Would be great in the next release that you could chose the mappings ie midi groves that were written for Toontrack
i have loads of songs that the parts are written for superior drummer. and when i use Modo Drums not all the assignments are the same, would not a big thing from a drop down menu to choose the mapping

Thanks The sounds are great well done

Modo Drum - Wish List

Postby deathrules » Sun Aug 11, 2019 10:44 am

May we can collect all wish list :D

As a Superiordrummer 3 User, i use SD3 to write Songs with the Song Creator or using a "real" Drummer to trigger sd3.

In the future i want to use Modo Drum more as soundmodul. But i can´t use it becaues the Midiout Function form SD3 can´t trigger Modo Drum cause of the differnt midi notes.

So my wish is..: flexible Midi Learn Function and mid note change funtion to enter the cc in every part of the Drum.

Another wish:

Room: More Control for the pre-delay, delay, reverb setting option.
in Amplitube you can move the mic position. May this will also an Option for Modo drum in the Future ?
As a User of T-RackS 5 i also own the CSR VST. Maybe you can integrate that as an alternative to too the fix room.

- Velocity sensitivity on edit via mouse

Be able to hear different velocity of a drum sound, by clicking on different part of a drum. Top most position is full velocity and lower, and lower as lower you click on the drum icon itself.

Hi, will we get mic positions for the drums?

The sound of a drum is very different from different mic positions. i.e. Hi-hat from straight top down, to a 45 angle and a flat angle... all sounds very different.

Same for tom-toms, snare and kick.

Maybe in v 1.5 ?

I have a couple of issues with the Grooves page. I feel that an improvement would be to have folders of grooves together with a wider range of variations. This would also make it easier later on to increase the size of the groove library.

As IK Multimedia is not a fairy, I'll make more than three wishes. Just put it on the backlog :)

- Turn off the snare wire.
- Tune also the resonance head of the snare
- Controlling the playing position for snare and toms via MIDI CC for both hands independently
- Visual feedback if the playing position is controlled via MIDI CC
- Daw automation in addition to MIDI CC for HiHat aperture and drum playing positions and other parameters (like dampening)

A bigger one, which is probably not possible: playing position of both hands in relation to each other effects sound. Right now the visual representation suggests two dimensions (x- & y-axis). This would allow to play with both hands on opposite sides or the same side.

Hii it would be great to draw the midi grooves into cubase 6.5. This doesnt work, as some other user said for cubase 7. And I'd love to edit the grooves Inside mododrums and to trigger the grooves via midi keyboard, but that's certanly too much asking.

I agree, that would be a good one. I thought you could do that, but I haven't spent much time with MODO Drum yet. I've done this with another drum plugin and it's kind of cool for certain songs and military type snare rolls where the wire is turned off. The fife and drum come to mind. The George Washington era movies where I've heard that, but I could be way off on that since I'm not a 'real' drummer and maybe those are different kinds of drums that are used.

My wish:
- brush and rods. I think modeling drums will be *all in one* solution for create drum track. Now why I need another sampled drums for brush and rods?
- more snare, kick and cymbals
- toms buzz to snare
- tom rim click

1. more snare and toms size options (for me important):
- Snare: 14"x8"

- Tom 2: 12"x10"
- Tom 3: 14"x14"
- Floor Tom 1: 16"x16"
- Floor Tom 2: 18"x16"
- options for material thickness

2. better cymbals options:
- thickness: thin, medium, heavy
- finish: briliant, traditional, dark, dry
- more size and sound options
- important for me: ride bell size option (mega bell, small bell)

3. Room
- mono, near and far Rooms

4. Layering and Trigger
- Kick and Snare Trigger

5. Bleeding options

6. Microphone options and positioning

7. Routing
- Kick in, Kick out, Snare top, Snare botton, ect.

Just got this a couple hours ago. Fairly intuitive GUI and great sounds. I would like to have a wider dynamic range. Especially toward the softer dynamic. Really nice with MODO Bass. Perhaps MODO Guitar is next. :)
