New kit set up. Back down to a four-piece kit but with the snare miked top and bottom again. I dropped one of my SM57s on the hard floor in Urft and killed it so I'm a mic down. I also set up my Yamaha snare as a second snare to the left of the hi-hat. It's not miked up but the overheads pick it up but it's off to the right of the stereo image making it sound like my main snare is echoing (unintentional!).

Anyway. Didn't know what to do here, so I just free-formed my way through the piece following the structure. Cue lots of frilly bits and just generally messing about with time going for a spot of fusion silliness. I was trying to get an almost arhythmic but dynamic feel to the fills. Ultimately, it's all a bit random and I've no idea if it's any use!

I played the whole track using traditional grip as I find it more expressive than matched.


No reverb on the HD drums.

kimbokimbo hey mr p... are the snare mice set out of phase? if not probably should be...sounds kinda ...dunno strangled maybe.
loving the patterns though... might even have a go!

I checked the project and the bottom mic has its phased reversed. I've been having some phasing oddness from my overheads which I need to deal with. The snare had a lot of damping on it though.

Does sound a bit dull though, you're right.

WadeWade What a contrast to the previous post! Such creative rhythms all making sense with a beautiful flow. Was going to download, but like this duet and wouldn't want to hide or clutter what is so good.

Please add! I hope the drums aren't too silly for you! Please! Pretty please with sugar on!

SOOOO glad you like it, Marc (I'd hope you'd say if you didn't). I don't know, I just felt like going a bit mad. But in a dynamic way. I think it's a bit too silly in places - too many breaks from the beat. But I it was so refreshing to just go with what I felt!

It was too easy to play normal time, which is what I'm supposed to do! I wanted to push myself. Frown

please don't ever think that you are supposed to do something in some way! It's also cool when a track is going an direction you didn't expect sometimes.
Love it man! Thanks a lot for the great music!
