Default Fast double bass rolls

Having difficulty with these when playing over tracks.

How fast is the roll starting at 0:50 in this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LaCzH9GxWJ8 ?

It would be easier if I could edit and make a click track over these things...

I find it even depends on my footwear whether I can nail these parts or not. If I'm using shoes I'm not used to playing with I can forget about going near my limits during playing.

id count it in 16ths though, as most metal is.... sounds a bit faster than 170bpm to me, maybe 180/190? tough to say, just use an online metronome, get it close and practice.

I think it's mental. I play barefooted, if I play with shoes on it's not that I can't play as well, it's that the only thing on my mind is "I can't feel the pedals" and this somehow does affect how well I play. Especially on direct drive pedals.

I'm a socks guy because that is what I wear at home.

In one band I play in shoes at gigs, the other I need to wear socks for heel toe because I am used to it.

I do find I can hit harder with shoes on, and play with heavier springs.

It's all in what you are comfortable with and used to.
