He was so specific that it's hard to think he didn't read your post, especially if he said it the way you quoted it.
You could've been more subtle and I think you already realized that.....I'm...

Re: Drums and allergies

Thanks for the tips guys.
I'll take the allergy pills one hour before each rehearsal and go with 3 hours for now and see how everything goes.
I already use eye drops everyday anyways.

Re: How to practice counting off?

The singer of my band usually talks between songs (as a way of giving the crowd a bit of time to breathe and to leave some space between songs) so I just get the tune in...

Re: Musicians who don't want to rehearse

+1
For my band and I it's the same.....it's not just about rehearsing, it's about having fun, chatting, having a couple of beers, so we rehearse every week even if we don't have gigs coming.

Re: Does anybody know where I can get the preset songs for the dtx502 module ?

If you connect the headphone output of your module to the mic input of a PC or laptop, you should be able to record it to your computer using any DAW (like Audacity for example).
