This alternate take follows the busier pattern used in the programmed drums a bit closer. Maybe it lines up better with what you had in mind? No worries if it doesn't.

This is what I had in mind for the drums!! Really awesome drumming you did here! The more I listen to your drums, the more I think I should retrack the guitars so remove the markings at 1.47 and keep the less busy drums until the marking just before the solo. I was thinking about just to hold one tone and perhaps have a, not too dominant, drum fill there so that the transition back to the less busy feel is natural? You hit the guitar solo spot right on with the drumming and the fill is just right! Perfect! I'll retrack the guitars but as I'm currently travelling to my inlaws I'm unable to do so until I get back :/ Just out of curiosity, are these MIDI drums? They sound really good!

"...I think I should retrack the guitars so remove the markings at 1.47 and keep the less busy drums until the marking just before the solo." That should work quite well. "You hit the guitar solo spot right on with the drumming and the fill is just right! Perfect!" Thank you! "Just out of curiosity, are these MIDI drums? They sound really good!" Thanks! It's just a $600 Tama kit. Nothing fancy at all. I am hitting them pretty damn hard though to get a better sound out of the toms. :)

This confirms my saying: "A monkey in a spaceship won't reach the moon on its own". But if you know what you're doing you can get really far with just some basic equipment :) What is your setup: special room, room treatment, microphones + mic position, preamps etc? Would be very interested in knowing if you have time to discuss :)

I have a 12 foot by 17 foot room for tracking my drums. The room has a laminate wood floor over concrete. The walls and ceiling are lined with Roxul Safe'n'Sound insulation batting. The ceiling is only 7 feet high, which is unfortunate. The mics are Audix, Shure, Oktava, and GLS Audio. They're running into my M-Audio Profire 2626 and Behringer ADA 8000 interfaces which send everything into Pro Tools. My first drum kit was a vintage Slingerland set that disappeared from the garage. My second drum kit was a Ludwig Rocker II Power Plus 9-piece. They weren't very good, despite being new and I literally played them until they were falling apart. The Tama kit was on sale and within my cheap budget at the time. Since then, a friend also gave me his CB700 drum kit. At some point, I would love to pick up a high-quality Sonor or DW kit. That may never happen though as our money is spent on our children. :)

Hello there!! Just checked in between baking and cleaning for the Xmas :)))... This starts to sound really massive!! :=O I have to say that my vocals may not be good enough for this... I can hear some "reading from the paper" instead of the intensity it needs. You let me do it again after the final form is about ready???... after holidays... back to the kitchen... ;))

The drums are the foundation and when they change this much, also the feeling you have to convey changes. You did a great job on the vocals but if you are willing to adapt to the new drums you are most welcome :) It's probably best if I just let you know once the pieces are in place and we're ready for a new take :) I think we'll get a really great tune in the end! Enjoy your holidays! :D
