I am (finally!) up to speed with my feet and hands when playing drums, and my accuracy is good enough to start making drums prototype tracks to the songs I've been writing the last year or two. So, here it is: one of the first songs that I've recorded drums to I've started off with some of the slower songs, as you can hear. This one is at 160BPM, which is a rather irritating tempo for me as it is too fast for normal "leg kick drumming", but too slow of "ankle kick drumming". You can hear this on the double bass rolls, and I apologize for that. However it won't be a problem when I'm going to do the proper recording.
What do you think? If you have any comments on
1. Drums sounds
2. Balance between cymbals, toms, snare and kick
3. Audibility of the drums all parts of the drum kit
4. The song itself
please feel free to leave it! ^^
Note: this is just a prototype drum track to get an idea of how the drums fit into the song, and to test the balance and so on. I recorded 80% of the drums in one take, and did two retakes at the end (I messes up completely and had to stop and redo it). Therefore there's a lot of misses, the timing is not perfect, fills are messed up and I will probably add, remove and change some of the fills, etc. So if you think that the drummer suck, please keep in mind that this is just a prototype
It is recorded DI mono (I will record it stereo later) from my Roland TD-12 and TD-9 modules. No editing done, just some minor effects added to the track (like a dynamics processor).
(Btw is this the right section mods? What section should I post in when I want to share/have opinions on track?)
Anyone have anything to say? Or is there nothing I can do to improve it/is it already good?
