I'm not clear what you are asking, styxx - do we use drum tracks - prerecorded compleete song tracks, loops, RMX, drums vs no drums? loops vs live? What are you asking here? I use RMX on almost everything new I do that is not for live duo performance with my drummer, but I may use percussion RMX Chaos'ed loops, etc. even then.
------- It's all about the music - really. I keep telling myself that...
I know of a percussionist who has drum tracks for sale on his website. I was wondering how feasible drum tracks are with the advent of todays sample drum libraries. This person is a monster on kit as well as all percussion instruments and I was thinking of using some of his tracks.
If you wish, you may check out his site www.amprercussion.com scroll down and click on “Enter” scroll down and click on “Percussion Creations Volume #1” From there you should find snippets on examples, and I stress the word “EXAMPLES” because I was told they were re-recorded purposely in poor quality at the time in order to thwart the possibility of theft. The actual tracks purchased are of pristine professional studio quality and fully customizable!
Since I have never used “drum tracks” before I was curious as to how some of you use them in your music if at all.
