These are the one of the reasons I'm lucky to be born in November. :D

Seems so close to Masterpiece Silver's release though. Still, I'm not comaplining.

note: the 400 means 400+ songs. Whether with emuse or not, I'm not sure, but they better have a damn fast song scroller.

Hey, I just joined =) I was wondering what songs you would suggest to learn bass? and how do you step on the bass? I lift my whole leg up but that gets tiring, I was wondering if there was another way? so far I'm playing hana no uta, and gekkouchou on extreme to try to practice bass but... I keep failing gekkouchou. XD any suggestions? (yes I've already dled gda + songs) what songs do you guys play with auto-bass? or do you even use auto-bass?

DoogiDoogi - Korea's new drum-simulation game,
except that unlike Drummania, which has you playing an electronic drum kit, DoogiDoogi has you playing on real drums with acoustic triggers.

Their site (with videos) is here: http://www.doogidoogi.com/

Features include:
- modes for both Konami-style "falling-notes" and scrolling sheet-music notation
- set includes high-hat (with pedal), foot-operated bass drum, snare drum, three toms, and two crash cymbals
- some kind of attachment that allows for drums and karaoke simulanteously
- enclosure available for arcade settings

As for songs, Chi from DDRUK (who has already gotten a chance to play a test-version) inforums us:
Amongst others: Nirvana, Metallica, Radiohead, Skid Row, Rage Against the Machine, Extreme , and lots of K-pop stuff that I haven't a clue about. Great songs.

So yeah, obviously can't help but hope that this machine makes it way to my area. The main problem is obviously that that an insane investment. The game itself is probably going to be at least 10k, and it'll be more with the enclosure (mandatory for arcades, which is obvious if you've ever played a real drum set). Also, you have to worry about jackasses breaking the game~ it's already a problem with Drummania, and I'm not sure if it'll be better or worse with this game, but I'm sure it'll still be an issue. Also, I'm sure the game will be mostly Korean songs, so it's hard to say how long American players would enjoy it with the 10 or so (my guess) Western songs. And, of course, two of the main components that made Drummania so fun, the ability to session with Guitarfreaks and the top notch Konami originals, won't be there.

But despite all that, I'm playing this shit first chance I get. =D

Heyyy :DD

I'm new here~ I'm from Singapore..and actually I only started playing Drummania in the later half of last year(most of the time there were too many people watching, so I didn't dare to try)..but it's addictive @@;;

I was introduced by one of my friends..all she did was give me the full-length Taisetsu na Mono mp3, but I suppose that was enough to get me started >D;;

Anyway..I'm looking for the Dragon Blade mp3 now..I've been searching for it for hours and can't find it, would anyone be kind enough to donate it to me? ><;;;; Sorry..I just joined the community and I'm asking for a song already...

Percussion Freaks upgrade
I've managed to restore a Percussion Freaks 3rd Korean to wonderfully accurate SS condition. I'm considering getting upgrades. I'm not sure what mix I'd like to upgrade to since the only other version I have played hands on has been 4th. Only suggestons that would give the pros/cons of the upgrade will be seriously considered.

BeForU theme pack
I've been meaning to announce this at GDAmania, but it's down for reasons that I have no knowledge of. So I'll say it here in the meantime.

Presenting, the BeForU theme pack; a compilation of all five GFDM BeForU songs in GDA and DTX format. These are all different GDA's by other people, compiled together by me and given additional content created by me (a few drum patterns, lots of guitar patterns, little fixes to the originals, etc.). And the overall quality is of the highest possible for sound, accuracy, and everything else. If you want a BeForU GDA/DTX, let it be this ;)

Extra notes.Collapse )

With Bemanistyle and GDAMania both down, thought I might as well post this here. ;x

With V2 coming up, I felt in the mood for making more GDAs. Besides that, I've been itching to make a tribute to hide for a while, so here's my attempt at killing two birds with one stone. I also tried adding karaoke lyrics to the DTX. Not really sure if anyone cares for that . . . ;x I know the drum part from the song still comes in strong~ too bad there's no easy way to get rid of that . . .

basic - 30 | advanced - 55 | extreme - 72 | dtx/karaoke - 72

Hope you enjoy~

hey everyone. i'm a guitar freak, i lost my interest in drummania a while back, but i still think GFDM is the best bemani. anyways, compared to BMIIDX, DDR and Pop'N, the english-speaking GFDM fanbase is horribly split, and far from properly able to communicate, so me and a few other GFDM fans have decided to attempt to unite the fanbase to the best of our ability, and that of anyone who will help us. we're starting with a forum, which may soon include picture hosting for score pics and such. please come and join up, make a few posts and help it along, maybe even promote. if this works and there's enough interest developed and helped along, maybe more places will get GFDM, or konami will take another shot at the american market. those are big dreams, but it can't hurt to try, and maybe have fun while you're there

Drummania V in London, UK
Well, as people may have already heard from DDR:uk (or GDAmania), London has its first DM machine ever (Wales already has the only other DM machine in the UK - a 3rd Mix). The Trocadero in Piccadilly Circus, London has now got a Drummania V, so it is possible you may be seeing more UK people around here in the near future... I'm very pleased as it means I can play something other than CS 3rd Mix for the first time ever!

Song request.
I have looked and looked and CANNOT find an mp3 for Centaur, which I really need. Could someone here possibly send it to me? Just IM me on AIM or something if you have it. It would be very much appreciated!

Hay guys.
I've been playing DrumMania for about a year now, but I don't live anywhere close to a machine so my skill at the game is pretty low. The hardest song I've passed was Funky Sonic World basic(36). I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I've played DM on the west coast of Canada( DM9, DM10 and DMV. Yeah theyre pretty well-off DM-wise) and in Minneapolis(DM3, my first exposure to the game). I really love the game and I hope I can get better at it, and that an arcade in my city gets it ;_;.

My timing on simple things like repetitive hi-hat striking sometimes goes completely off and I can't get it back on correctly, getting tons of poors, sometimes even failing the song! Any suggestions at how to get better at stuff like that? I'm also pretty bad at bass-snare kind of rythms...

Where can I find an image of the little icon for the DrumMania guy in the session mode for DMV and any other mixes? I have a really nice high-quality image of the DM10 guy if anyone wants it, too.
