Re: Mounting an iPad to your drumset

Didn't know that was a DW mount... seems like I saw it in the audio department at Sam Ash just 2 years ago.

Re: I hate that Song!!

Yep, well written!

I knew that intro from a while ago, but never played Rock & Roll until last year's tour, where a new cover song was played at every show! We learned 77 songs - each performed...

Re: Tiki Drums snare building course - how deep would you go?

6.5" is a great depth for just about anything (apart from a popcorn snare!) All of my favorite snares are 6.5x14 with one recent exception: the 8x14 Black Beauty (it's tied with the 6.5" Copperphonic...

Re: Mounting an iPad to your drumset

I wouldn't take a chance with the vibrations. I know the iPad is solid-state, but still. Also, is it a possibility that you'd drop a stick on it? Could be fatal to the screen with enough force.

Re: Mounting an iPad to your drumset

I'm using an Ultimate Support holder, attached to the arm of my sample pad. It's positioned exactly where I need it without being in my way. It comes with 2 goosenecks - short and long - but the...

Re: Pre-planned drum fills??

Yes, but when you've just played a great fill, one that you know just fits perfectly, do you avoid doing it again because now it's planned?

Re: Pre-planned drum fills??

Exactly. And if there's a great fill, why deliberately avoid playing just because? I play fills that work, whether I cooked them up, or am copying another drummer in a cover song. Does a singer...

Re: Pre-planned drum fills??

Yes, as much as humanly possible. Some songs are 100% note for note. The rest are only about 99% authentic, but I'm working on those.

Re: Bo's last name

I had asked him the same question, as I know of a singer named Linda Eder who pronounces it edder. He said either way was fine, but wouldn't confirm. It was a few years after we met that I found out...

Re: Pre-planned drum fills??

It also depends on the player. When doing covers, I play the parts that make the song worth playing. It's a little more work to play the original parts, but I enjoy being those drummers. I have no...

Re: Pre-planned drum fills??

I see no difference when it comes to parts & fills, they apply equally. After all, covers are just someone else's originals.

Re: Pre-planned drum fills??

Some of my fills are planned, some are not, but even those tend to follow some guidelines and are pretty consistent. The music dictates what fills I play, and if the music doesn't change, neither do...

No looping function on the basic SamplePad.

Re: Weird Al and Bermuda

NARAS does have a certificate for participation for those who aren't named winners, but deserve something for their close involvement. I have those for the previous wins. I should hit up Sony for one...

Re: Weird Al and Bermuda

Thanks, and although I'm also credited under Sony's credits, I don't get an award. :(

However, the label and Al have assured me that I was a big part of the success of the box, due my to my...

Re: ANYONE WOOF???

I've never felt that I needed anything extra from my kick that EQ or other efx couldn't achieve (and without the need for extra equipment or devices.) Even in the studio, I've never had an engineer...

Re: These posts I see on Craigslist

One reason to not rehearse is the time-frame before a gig. I did a gig like that just last night. I had one week to learn 45 songs - originals and covers with unfamiliar arrangements - from various...

Re: In ear monitor users - mic'ing question

Yep, so it picks up much more of the kit than it does the house, so it feels intimate with just enough room. That is, if some fans screamed out "Bermuda, we love you!" from the audience, I'd hear it....

Re: In ear monitor users - mic'ing question

Depending on the size of the room and how much of that mic is in the mix, it could be a detriment. In a closed theater for example, that mic hears the back of the room, including the delay of the...

Re: In ear monitor users - mic'ing question

I use IEMs with an ambient mic specifically to pick up the kit, and rely on that for most of my drum mix. I do have kick in my ears (and thumper) and my vocal mic adds a bit.

Obviously my drums...

Re: Top Musicians vs Average Musicians

Yep. That means going on auditions, frequenting jams, and networking. It's not who you know - it's who knows you.

Re: I don't understand why people close mic

The problem is, what the drummer hears from behind the kit is probably not going to be a usable mix when bass, guitars, keys and vocals are added. The engineer must have some independent control over...

Re: Top Musicians vs Average Musicians

A band will certainly keep a large percentage of the money taken at the door if playing clubs and traveling on the cheap. But I'll bet they'd be thrilled to take a smaller percentage if tickets sales...
