Re: Recording to a click shenanigans

Very slightly. If you are looking for a master recording, you would be doing several takes anyway. In the end mix, the drums would not be on top anyway and the slight variations will disappear.

Re: Recording to a click shenanigans

I don't hear latency. I thought I heard the guitar waver a bit but it might have been a time signature thing that caught me off gaurd.

I can hear some waver in the drums. You can check all the...

Re: Recording to a click shenanigans

I didn't see that part of the post at first.

Once in a while the latency will go off the rails on my GB and I have to close/open it. I don't know what the actual numbers are but, it either...

Re: Did recording yourself make you a better player, and how?

Here is an odd thing I learned from recording. I have been playing with a click for years, both in the studio and live. It has become second nature.

Everything appears to be in order when I...

Re: Recording to a click shenanigans

I doubt that it is an equipment error. Even with a click, it is easy to wander a bit. If it is an equipment error, it's probably a latency issue. I have used GB for years and never had an issue, but...

Re: Making a drumming video with electronic drums

The recording and drumless tracks are pretty straight forward but, in my experience, learning to edit video is harder than playing opposite paradiddles with your hands and feet.

Good luck :)

Re: State your unpopular drumming opinions

Well, that cleared it up **rolls eyes***

1) Every response in this thread is presumably an (unpopular) opinion.

2) If you just like to argue about stupid shit, I'm out.

Re: State your unpopular drumming opinions

How is it a statement of fact? The thread is titled "State your unpopular drumming opinions" :)

Also, if is a fact, it can't be incorrect :) :)

I am confused

Re: Flams/triplets/quads - left hand first?

I'm pretty lazy so I assume I always lead with my dominant right hand. I really have no motivation to change. I have enough stuff to do :)

Re: how essential are backing vocals in a band?

In my opinion, backing vocals are huge. A band with only one vocalist is going to sound the same in every song. You can make it work by choosing songs with no backing but, since the vocals are the...

Re: State your unpopular drumming opinions

I definately didn't realize I was doing it. I thought I had eliminated it :) When I heard the recording I was puzzled. Apparently I slipped back into old habits :)

The song in question wasn't...

Re: State your unpopular drumming opinions

I have another one.

Ghost notes are simply an excuse for lazy hands.

I just review a gig recording from this weekend and the isolated drum track was LOADED with ghost notes. I can't hear them...

Re: In Ear Monitors Vs. Bookshelf Speakers While Playing

Trying to mix acoustic drums nicely into recorded music will be a challenge. It was for me. That's what pushed me into EDrums. You can fit in the mix perfectly and I could really enjoy practicing....

Re: Did recording yourself make you a better player, and how?

This is a timely resurrection of this thread.

Although recording has made me better, I was just listening to some isolated tracks and I'm ready to quit again. Even though everything is clicked, I...

Re: Are your bandmates interested in your drums

Very rarely, although I would welcome any input.

I had a guitarist (great musician) ask me not to play a big fill at the end of a song. I was just learning the song and experimenting in...

Re: The Sound Of Drums

I have always realized that the drummer has the worst possible seat in the house to hear how the drums sound to the audience.......unless you a have great feed into a great monitor system.

Re: 1st time playing with others

He probably said, or meant "perform live". You are always ready to "play" and the sooner you do it, the better. You may have to play with beginners but, starting at the beginning is an obvious place...

Re: Extreme Volume

For what it's worth......

Since you don't feel that the bass is too loud in the mix, try moving his cabinet a bit.

I had an experience where moving the small Bose L1 subs just a few feet made...

Re: State your unpopular drumming opinions

Jethro Tull was one of my earliest concerts. Two shows, 4 Bucks each, at a community college gymnasium. I was 16 or 17. I was a fledgling drummer at the time. I didn't know why Clive was so good, I...

Re: Counting

I rarely count and I often use lyrics and instrumental cues as a reference.

That may get me in trouble and it may help me out of a jam. If the singer screws up the lyrics or comes into a...

Re: State your unpopular drumming opinions

#2. Drums are far easier to play than stringed instruments or keyboards.


Not to master, but to play. At the master level, all things seem equally unobtainable to me :)

It doesn't matter what drums look like or sound like as long as you hit them at the right time.

Re: Oi !! He's right, I can't do it!

TNT while playing drums certainly can't be difficult. Guitarists are counting on the drums to provide the back beat so they don't give it as much thought as we do.

I still struggle with some of...
