Equipment

My studio is an anomaly, in that it does not use “Pro Tools” or any other commercial software. In fact, 100% of the software used (down to the low-level hardware drivers) is open-source software. This allows unprecedented freedom in the creative process, as you aren’t tied down to any proprietary products with proprietary vendors. Of course, free software does not mean that the software is of lesser quality; in fact, many of the pieces of software used in this studio are far superior to their commercial counterparts (ardour is IMHO, far superior to Pro Tools).

Software and Drumkits

Since everything in the studio is community-software (opensource software) driven, I’m making anything that I cobble together or find useful available. Hydrogen Drumkits * Pearl v0.1: basic Pearl drumset sound DISCLAIMER: I do not put *anything* here with the intention of infringing on anyones’ copyrighted names or signature sounds. Sounds here either have been labelled as “Creative Commons” or have been personally recorded; they are in no way comparable to actually purchasing quality drum equipment and having a good percussionist play it.
