    Hi guys,

    here is my first tutorial. it's about midi drums editing.
    it's pretty beginner level-oriented. but still you might be interested.

    I am also interested in comments to improve the quality of the future videos.
    Sorry for the french accent and the tongue noises ;)

    Cool vid! Thanks for sharing. Do you recommended this humanizing process before or after tracking other instruments? I usually do this last.

    it depends on the vibe of the music of course. for metal/heavy rock, it shouldn't make such a big difference. for lighter stuff, before might be a good idea.

    Really nice tutorial :) For a extended Version i would assume to tell sth about:

    - How to turn a real - for example Snare - track into midi for mixing samples with the real drums
    - How to edit more complex drumpatterns (like rolls or very fast Bassdrum patterns)

    Awesome man, thanks!
    Haven't had the time yet to look into midi in PT, so this is a nice starting help for me!
    2nd video is also pretty nice

    Wow the second is really nice! But its hard to get a similar sound without having these plugins for 500$...

    thanks, well i am thinking about vocal production.

    mixing would be cool but it's so "situation-dependent" that i dunno...
