ALL DRUMS by ARCHURE on a Yahmaha TDXpress. MIDI drums (.mid) sound different from MP3 drums (.mp3), but its all on the Yamaha TDXpress.
MIDI: Guitar, Keyboards, Drums, (all other sounds flute, sax, strings, bells, kalimba, etc) are MIDI sounds performed on keyboards or guitar).
MP3's: HOW DOES HE DO THAT? GEAR: How does ARCHURE get all those sounds like Flute and Sitar and Horns etc, out of a Guitar?
DEMOS from YOUTUBE but NOT by ARCHURE (just the same equipment)
GEAR DEMOS NOT by ARCHURE ROLAND GR-20 /// micro KORG /// Yamaha TDXpress drums /// Casio CTK-611 /// MIDI at wikipedia
2012 PRICE RANGES Roland GR-20 ($730 new), Micro Korg v1 of 2 (was $500, have seen $400), Yamaha TDXpress (was $1000, now $900, Casio CTK-611 Im guessing $130 to under $200 range, I got mine at the Casio oulet (Las Vegas) at the Outlet Mall south of the Airport on Las Vegas Blvd (formerly Belz Outlet Mall) for around $100 and they had various other types, cheaper, but they might not be there anymore? dont see them on the Mall List. Casio's can be found in music stores all around town. Notes: Archure has the earlier version of Micro Korg (2 current versions). The GR-20 requires a Roldand GR-3 pickup. and may be run thru MIDI and/or AUDIO. Going thru MIDI with a GR-20 and GR-3 is Polyphonic (each string has a different pickup and thus you may play full chords, while other MIDI devices for guitar are often only Polyphonic, plays one note at a time, no chords), playing the GR-20 with Audio has the features shown in the 2 videos above, better quality than Midi. My MIDI tunes are done with a GR-20 and or Casio Keyboard CTK-611 (only around $100.00 (the expensive model) around 10 years ago, at the Casio outlet in the Outlet Mall on Las Vegas blvd, just south of the airport) and DRUMS: Yamaha TDXpress electronic drums. What I like about the Yamaha drums is they are stereophonic and well ballanced, with a variety of sounds. Compare with a regular drum set that has to be properly miced, which at many concerts I have been too, just never happens (rarely do they properly mic the drums, probably due to the Sound Engineer that comes with the stage "sorry, I only have one mic available for the drums", Ive seen it, heard it, too often, big name bands, and you cant hear the drums). The Yamaha drums work mono or stereo, but sound best stereo. Archure also has a 250 Watt (sterophonic 125 Watts per side) Radio Shack amp (more bang for the buck in that wattage range, but it does require a preamp, I use a Behringer Eurorack, good product, good price)
Even this song by ARCHURE EarlySFdaze, the 12 String Guitar, the Nylon String Classical Guitar, flute, and Bass, are all really done on a Gibson ES-335 electric guitar thru a ROLAND GR-20 using a ROLAND GK-3 pickup
I also enjoy playing my Fender Stratocaster (also MIDI capeable)
