How To Make Midi Drums Sound Real

I've been challenged in the last 19 months to create music VERY fast for video projects.  I created a video showing the process I've been using to get better drums sounds using stock logic drum tones.  I prefer recording drums with a real drummer however this has been a fantastic challenge in its own right. 

P.S.  If it is annoying for me to post videos in the forum I have no problem removing them:)  These are the things in music that are exciting for me so I thought I would share it. 

Run & Gun audio when making video is very different than working in a recording studio

Its been way too long since I've been here.  The new forum looks great.  I have settled in to my new business of creating videos for clients and my business needs to become a client as well:) So I've started a youtube channel about all nerd things video👍

The first video I put out is here.  I'd love to hear what others are doing to get good audio when making videos.  It is such a different world than the recording studio. 

 

8pre suddenly won't boot

I have an old MOTU 8pre Firewire I got on the cheap that was working great.  Been using it as an ADAT converter to add 8 channels to my 18i20.  Today I wanted to try reducing latency by increasing the sample rate to 48khz.  While fiddling with it I power cycled it and now after the "sparkle" animation it just displays the word "UP" on the LED display and outputs noise over optical and doesn't respond to pushing or turning the data knob.

What could "UP" mean?  Upgrade?  Underpowered?  Belly up?
