Topic: New jazz drum kit demo - comments anyone?

    New jazz drum kit demo - comments anyone?

    There is a new jazz drum kit demo at http://www.themusicdifference.com/cgi/download/download.pl?filename=hipdemo&type=.exe (contains embedded MP3) - the piano is the stock Giga and the bass you hear is an Ashbory (please pardon my poor intonation!). Comments or suggestions? Would you jazzers out there rather hear more stuff in context, exposed sections, or maybe feature more of the brushes?

    The full poop is at http://www.themusicdifference.com/order/giga/hipgig.html

    Be well, Kev

    Hi Kev

    Would love to comment but as it\'s a .EXE file it won\'t work on my Mac. Why not just put an mp3 up there so Mac users can have a listen?

    Hi Dave,

    Unfortunately my web site host doesn\'t allow MP3\'s as it violates their TOS. Anywho, that is the reason. It is getting harder and harder to find a \"decent\" host that allows them, even for legitimate uses such as a demo. What do you (and other Mac users) think about Flash as a cross-platform solution in the meantime?

    Thanks for your input Dave,
    Kev

    Hi Kev

    Flash would be OK for me providing it\'s full bandwith and not too (data) compressed

    Alternatively, how about zipping up the mp3s? Mac\'s have Stuffit Expander installed by default and that can handle .ZIP files.

    to see what can be achieved with flash... (thanks for the hint Lewis/loving Chris)

    Marsdy, as far as my knowledge goes, it is the same to provide mp3 or zipped mp3. In most cases the web hosts don\'t allow them in any case, whether packed, renamed or anything. Kevin, as long as you pay for the bandwidth there are plenty of hosts that allow mp3s. For free, hm, take a look at mp3.com, but keep in mind only 128kbit encoded files are allowed!

    Hope this helps...

    Kevin, don\'t forget RealAudio, it\'s also a free player and encoder, if you don\'t want a lot of bells and whistles.

    Paul, there is detailed information about the samples, MIDI chart layout, photo and descriptions of kit, cymbals and so on in a PDF at http://www.themusicdifference.com/cgi/download/download.pl?filename=hipinfo&type=.pdf

    Uploaded a flash version of the demo last night - did anyone have any luck with that? Will re-do the demo with more exposed sections and more of the brushes ...have a cornet player coming over tomorrow so will try and get him in on the demo too.

    Happy turkey, Kev

    Just rename the mp3 file to \"song.wav\" or \"song.jpg\", whatever, then give us a link and we\'ll just \"save it\" not \"open it\" and then we can rename it to \"song.mp3\" after we download it. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Kevin,

    Dn\'t know why, but much of the demo sounds terrible! the cymbals sound good, and paino and bass, but almost ALL the drums sound kike someone hitting a stzck pf cardboard boxes with a sledge hammer. No \'drums\' at all.

    My old computer used to have this problem with Windows Media Player, but this new machine doesn\'t do that. If you can find a way to disguise the files (perhaps rename the .MP3 to .KEV, then tell us to rename after download.
