I've seen a lot of videos recently of sound engineers and producers showing how they mix drums. Most of the time they say that they put samples over the actual drums that have been played. This means that the drum sound on the recording is not the one of the kit used in the studio. So my question is, doesn't this make all the conversations on this forum about which drums to use, which woods/metal etc, how to tune them, what heads to use, and how to mike them etc totally meaningless if a whole new sound is stuck on top of it? What are your thoughts?
