That's really weird, I was thinking this exact same thing on my way home today and I came into the recording forum to make this exact topic (save for the ableton bit). _________________ http://alligatr.co.uk/

When you're programming beats just think about what a real person could actually play/hit at once. Fills etc can often get too busy. Some software lets you humanize your beat, that's great for getting that natural vine and removing the sterile robot rock element.
Yup, it's no fun, but if you have a talent for it you can get good results.
Doog programs stuff really rapidly for us in a really old version of Cakewalk when we're doing demos, he just programs what he would play which comes fairly naturally as he is a great drummer in his own right. I sit there and offer vague opinions "A snare there?" _________________ MadeByMike.co.uk - Handmade Pedals and Custom Builds Facebook - Twitter
