Re: Is it fair to play live with a metronome?
I play live with an MPC, the samples don't come in quite often until the chorus. So I need to stay in time until the Chorus hits, hence the click.
Also, it's just an MPC - straight into a DI and only using one power point. Not technically amazing, and not a sound guys nightmare. The whole band is Vox, Double Bass, 2x Cello, Piano, Drums, MPC.... Now THAT is a sound guys nightmare!! Although we don't play that many "pub" shows, they are mainly theatre shows with decent soundchecks.
It is strange though, sometimes the songs feel really slow, and other times they feel fast! It's strange how the mind works....
