Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong place, I'm not quite sure about where this kind of thread should go and this part of the forum seemed like the most appropriate. Aaaaaaaaanyway
Hi all, last night I saw Abhorrent Decimation and their guitarist was firing off some samples as song intros and so on using his laptop and that got me thinking again. My band has undergone some serious changes, meaning we've become more melodic and we'd like to use orchestrations. I've looked for a keyboardist with no luck since finding Metal keyboardists is like finding a needle in a haystack, let alone finding someone in our area haha. This basically means that we need to use pre-programmed midi tracks (ala Angra or Wintersun) which is all fine, but here comes the issue- playing in time with it. Getting the whole band on in-ear monitors with a click track seems like a bit of a ball ache, so I'm wondering if anyone has any alternative suggestions?
Have the drummer play to the click and the rest of you play of them?
