Thanks ,for the reply. i will look into researching ,“Slip Editing” . I am using 4 drum tracks ,Snare,bass,OH R, OH L . I have been doing little ,music production bits ,for a you tube “Ghost Hunters” type show . the drums have been recorded for the entire length of the piece . 1.5 to 3:00 minutes
Now i am recording songs that require vocal . I need to make my own drum loops . I want to snap them to the grid,paste drop,and lay it down .
My guitar player has a POD PRO X HD ,it records direct stereo ,very easily and sounds fantastic . I record bass direct ,as long as there is no clipping it sounds great . The drummer hits very evenly so i have him with in reasonable head room ,with no issue . He doesn’t count or play to a click ,so …well…he writes good beats,this is what i have to work with
I have used ELEMENTS up till now,i really like it . I just started researching ,how to make my own drum loops ,with acoustic drums ,and realized i NEED “Group edit” to be most efficient . The whole concept of group crossfading,and quantization ,is awesome . I have done all kinds of re recording for levels and sound,now i finally have an easy to record direct sound,and a good drums sound .I have at least 20 songs,on a list to record . I have demoed them already on a Korg D3200,but that was with conventional amp mics ,and just a overhead sound on the kit .
I have made demos using Nu Metal drum loops ,those were okay,but the levels were different ,depending on what beat was chosen from a library .
I don’t really like the way drum libraries are set up . I think it would be great if , i could read some sample sheet of grooves , and just pick , a boogaloo beat ,or a shuffle ,based on how the beat is syncopated ,or not syncopated .
If i were to hire a pro from Musicians Institute ,i would show them a list of basic grooves in sheet,and see what they can do with their hat ,ghost notes ,and stick control in general. I don’t see why i have to listen to libraries of beats by ear ,when i already know .Drummers know that . I wonder what ,Thomas Lang ,Will Lee ,Max Weinberg,Anton Fig and Gregg Bissonette,think about that ?
