Yeah, us coders like to be all manly and such eating Ho-Ho's in the basement and washing it down with 6 packs of Mountain Dew Game Fuel then crushing the cans on our foreheads.
You don't want to give us a bad reputation. :tease:

Hi faggot,

Welcome to DonationCoder forum !!! :)

After being shocked at first, having read the first reply, I thought this must be some kind of joke I don't get. But reading the reply#3, I now think being shocked was the correct initial emotion. [#3 made me laugh!!! Thank you, Cpilot.]

I want to encourage you to not judge the forum on the base of the first reply you got, following your first ever post. Most people here are very friendly, and I hope user f0dder might care to explain the bad joke.

Welcome to DonationCoder forum !!! :Thmbsup:

Unfortunately, I can not give an answer to your question, as I don't know anything about music applications.


Greetings

OK, I have read How did "faggot" get to mean "male homosexual"? pointed to by google. I did misunderstand it as a unusual spelling of a musical instrument. In my mother language there is an instrument called "Fagott", and in my ignorance I thought it may be the same or similar in English, (as is the case for other instruments like organ=Orgel, trumpet=Trompete ...).

Now I wonder whether the members of this forum actively discourage the membership of people that are homosexual and admit to it. Or is there some taboo attached to the nickname, that I still don't get?

We have "fagot" in Danish as well, but couple his nickname with the forum title...

I don't have anything against gay people etc., but his name/title might offend somebody. It does baffle me a bit, though, since his post is a perfectly acceptable one, and doesn't look like a troll post (which I would have expected with that kind of name).

"Faggot (epithet), a pejorative term for a gay or effeminate man"

Given this quote, that nick is considered abusive/offensive, and i think it should be changed.
On the contrary, Wolf. AFAIK, there isn't anything against the gay community (or any other community, for that matter), but the way that nick refers to a homosexual, might be considered offensive for them, thus, it's innapropriate.

PS: i didn't delete the thread because this is a sensitive matter that i think should be handled by mr.mouser himself

Hi jgpaiva,

Now I have to look up "pejorative" as well. But I did understand
Quote
that nick is considered abusive/offensive

Thanks for enlightenment.



Hi f0dder,

after having learned my lession, I see now that your comment was not a bad joke, but a sign of your caring for people that might be offended. Hope you weren't offended by me being shocked, and writing about it.

Well I think if you look under his avatar you will find the words "im so gay", so the question becomes....is he?
And therefore can he offend himself?
Nowadays an epithet becomes offensive by virtue of the one who uses it.

Thinking in another pejorative term, an idea blinked on my mind on why he could choose such nick. And Wikipedia seems to agree with me (first paragraph). Of course, some other gay people could not feel so comfortable with the term (and they probably won't)

BTW, Wolf, the instrument in English is "Bassoon". Your confusion it's totally understandable, even in Spanish is called "Fagot" :)

Well, I feel the topic has been derailed enough. Nobody knows about a drum program?

from what i understand, BFD by Fxpansion is the way to go if you want real sounding drums - though, of course, you can make them sound as synthetic or unreal too.

http://www.fxpansion...com/index.php?page=1

i have a friend that recently rigged up a Traps electronic drumkit to BFD via cubase - pretty much blows away other 'electronic' drumkits - unless you are going to buy a top of the range Roland or something but even then the BFD sounds aren't going to be beat.

edit:
in the UK a 'faggot' is also a type of food...

Hi and welcome ...

Answering your original question - can't you just buy some drum samples and sequence them in Cubase? I don't use Cubase personally but I use Sonar which is it's main rival and that has a fully functional drum machine built in - you just need the sounds.

Your are most welcome to stay and chat here but I would suggest that if you want specific info and suggestions for Cubase there are loads of forums out there specifically aimed at Cubase and music making that would have a wealth of experience to offer. Try googling "Cubase forum help" for loads of forums relating to Cubase or "Cubase Tutorials" for lots of suggestions - I'm sure there will be drum programming tutorials out there.

Actually Googling "Cubase drum" comes up with loads of stuff.

Does this one look helpful at all: http://www.drumslive.com/

Let us know how you get on.

PS: Actually I was going to suggest FXpansion as I have the DXi version of it - hadn't realised that they had branched out into VST territory now. FXpansion also has a really good user community that share sounds and settings. Worth a look.

Re: the nick - it's not a matter of offense, orientation or preference. It's simply one of appropriateness and taste. There's a time and a place for everything.

Glad that we got down to the question asked and demonstrated the true value, spirit and intention of the forum.

The beat goes on!

Cruise over to the Project Studio Network. It's a podcast and they recently did some reviews on drum software. The last ones were simply amazing. If you want real - you got it. I don't remember the name of the software though.

as you can see, the user has changed their name to "queer as folk", a non-derogatory term.  thanks to everyone involved for handling this in such a reasonable manner  :up:

I'm with Carol, I thought Cubase had a drum sequencer. :huh:
Anyways, here's some sample packs of live drums that cost free ninety-free...

For your drumming program, look into EZDrummer. It's a vst instrument you add and use MIDI to map out your drum parts within Cubase (or whatever platform). The drums sound really cool but if you want to take it a step further, ideally you want to export each piece of the drum individually into WAV's which you can then process and add your different compression, reverbs, whatever for each piece.

EZDrummer all the way.

One of my buddies produced some descent albums (artists with videos on Much Music for example) and used the program mixed like I'm talking about with great results to give you an idea.
