Re: Laptop/backing cutting out live

Thanks, that sounds like good advice. I bought the laptop new last year, it's got a decent processor 8GB ram. When I was just playing to MP3's I only had Windows Media Player running.

My brother...

Re: Laptop/backing cutting out live

Is it possible to fit an SSD into my laptop or would it be cheaper to buy a new one?

Re: Arm length and drumming style

You have wings?!!!!

Sorry, yeah I often wonder if this makes a difference. Strangely I see a lot of really tall, gangly players 6'5 etc playing sat really low, with drums even lower than I'd have...

Re: Laptop/backing cutting out live

No, that's what I'm saying. I work in a studio, I'm very familiar with buffer rates and if a DAW maxed out doesn't do this then Windows media player shouldn't either. I can play ANY music for as long...

Re: Laptop/backing cutting out live

Ah this is depressing news! Right, I'm going to come up with a solution to reduce vibration. I'll also test something other than WMP just out of curiosity.

And if that doesn't work I'm going to...

Re: Laptop/backing cutting out live

No, it's not th ebuffer rate, I'm not running this on Cubase with multiple tracks, I'm not even talking about live through a PA (I just HAVE to do that soon) I mean literally just playing mp3's with...

Laptop/backing cutting out live

Firstly sorry if this is in the wrong area, I couldn't find a category that seemed right for this.

Anyway, I'm usually good with equipment and techy stuff but, this problem has me banging my head...

Re: How should a band practice?

With my band, we tend not to stop mid-song unless something is REALLY bad. We'll all give our thoughts after the song, try to play the song through perfectly a few times and if there are any tricky...

Re: Does Tom Angle inform the level of mediocrity of a drummer prior to ever seeing the drummer play

I think it CAN actually be a tell tale sign of a bad drummer or in-experienced drummer.

That's not to say all drummers who do this are bad but, it's very common for beginners to do this.
If it's...

Re: Do you play a consistent bass drum pattern?

Yeah I agree M.A.D

I disagree with the 'Math Rock' thing though. I love really intricate bass drum patterns. They can be the grooviest sounding parts ever, especially with tasty ghosts on the...

Re: Do you play a consistent bass drum pattern?

I agree with this ^^^^

If I mix up the bass drum pattern it would usually be in the 3rd repetition of a art that plays 4 times and still be based around the flow of the song or classed as simply...

Re: How to beat superior drummer

Just go with the flow. This happens to loads of drummers, it'll probably happen to you again. Usually experienced musicians will really push for live drums on their recordings. It all depends on what...

Re: Reason why no Keith Moon type drummers exists on main stream music

I get what you mean but, it HAS gotten alot worse over the years. Listen to stuff from the 60's 70.s 80's.
I mean MJ's Off The Wall has musical breaks, long instrumental sections etc. Usually they'd...

Re: The disconnect between musicians perspectives and audience perspective

Yeah I think the whole event of getting a 'guest drummer' up to play a song gave the impression he was mean to be really good, the fact he took the chance to just show off his chops would have been a...

I think manufactured pop/rock/indie has alot to do with it actually. Songs for singers basically. Written to make the leader of the band the leader in every which way while cementing what is now...

Re: Dry hands

I've had this problem too as my area is real cold. I moisturise but, like Polly said, not before playing because once you grip those sticks that's them sticks ruined until you wash the stick with...

Re: Who's the fastest drummer on Drummerworld? (on topic)

One thing that pops up a lot in these conversations that bugs me a bit is the 'either or' attitude.

If you're fast you're not groovy, if you can't play super fast then you're a groovy player......

Re: Being a drummer and a dad.

Congrats man, well done!

It can be damn tough at times fitting in time to be a drummer, or the drummer who feels he is still growing when you have young babies.

I have 3 kids and the first 3...

Re: What's the most common kick&snare pattern in swing/jazz?

Hahaha duly scorned on the Casio remark! I'll behave.

I think Caddywumpus is talking sense here, I don't ever remember having to learn 'staples' of jazz. What I do remember is having a jazz...

Re: What's the most common kick&snare pattern in swing/jazz?

I don't think you can condense a lot of styles into one beat really. Only Casio keyboards try to do that and fail miserably!

It's a good way to start a wide vocabulary though as if you just keep...

Re: Leaning into discomfort

I like when people share their experiences about brave set-up changes. I actually find it more inspiring than watching someone play amazingly well on Youtube at times.

Re: Do any of you just naturally suck at the drums?

I willing to bet your peers think very highly of your playing.

You're just a perfectionist and this is probably why you've gotten to the stage when people think you are great and you think you...

Re: Loud ghost notes (still ghost notes?)

I usually class any beat quieter than the main backbeat as a ghost. Certain volume of ghost notes just work on certain styles. You have to play them louder in some music or they really WILL be a...
