Make The Edit For The Drummer To Get It


Musformation has declared this week Click Track Week. Check back
here all week to see many articles about making life with the Click
Track much easier!

In the studio every detail is magnified. Many times a drummer is missing the groove because they just cannot hear the way it should sound. The Click Track can sometimes make a drummer forget how to groove a beat the way they did in rehearsal. One way to get the drummers groove back is to edit the stiff sounding drum part to the way it should sound inside your DAW. Play it back for your drummer and get him to memorize the sound of the groove. If that still doesn’t work, simply turn this edited groove into the click track and have the drummer play to it. With these tools in my pocket I can get almost every drummer to play a groove the way I would like to hear it.
