Music Stuff

In this section of the website, you can find information about music, computer applications for music, tutorial videos, and other things.  Cakewalk Sonar, Line6 products, and Roland vDrums are a few of my pasions, so I will focus on these primarily.Find reviews on existing or upcoming products here as well.

I "do" technology for a living.  I co-own a small business doing website design, IT support, and computer training.  I hope to share things here that I don't get to on my company website, with a focus on Xara Designer Pro for graphics and websites and Joomla! for website development - specifically covering the Joomlart T3 framework.

This video was created several years ago (in Sonar 5) but this information still applied in Sonar 8.5.3, so if you are having an issue with a drum map or you just want to learn a little bit more about them, please watch this video.  I show how to create a drum map from the notes that are on a midi track, how to assign different notes within the kit to different hardware or software synths (VST), and a few practical applications where drum maps have helped me.  Buy Sonar X2 at Guitar Center Online
