I’ve recently completed recording live drums (me) for a client’s 8 song album. The process has been the same on all songs. I first put all tracks in a group folder and engage group editing. I then comp the takes and bounce all the tracks.
Now, for some unknown reason as I’m editing the drum mix, on one song I notice that the toms are slightly off time from the overhead mics. Since I can’t figure how or why, I’ve been spending tons of time currently slip editing the toms, mostly by ear, until they sound in sync with overheads. I sometimes create midi notes from transients and blend in or replace with Slate Digital SSD4, and also Trigger 2. The same issue occurs. I thought at first it was a midi sync issue, but eventually noticed it on the live toms vs OH toms.
The first 3 songs didn’t have this issue. All drums were recorded in my studio, all using the same signal chain. Does anyone have a clue how this could happen?
