'Metric Scales' in drumming is a term used for a complete mixture of rudiments practiced over a set time. I am right in my thinking here ? I would love to know anyones thoughts on this.

never heard the term used for rudiments

to me it would take on more of a subdividing a rhythm or pattern meaning .....or metrically modulating a rhythm

still never heard the term used in a drumming context

I have heard of the architects drafting tool though

Don't like details much do you? :)

How about telling us a little more mate? Who said it? In what context was it said? Are you able to link us or quote the text as it was originally presented?

I think it is a number of rudiments practiced in a set mix each time so you always remember the idividual rudiments used. Thanks anyway

I'd assume it's a "scale comprised of different meters, or metric rates." Like:

whole note
half notes
half note triplet
quarter notes
quarter note triplets
eighth notes
eighth note triplets
16th notes
quintuplets
sextuplets
septuplets
32nd notes

and back again.
