  • Experiment [DFHS dry]

    I was curious to see what DFH Superior would sound like with all ambience turned off for a more natural sound. This is the same Tull track dry with the Sonor kit and Ludwig acrylic snare drum.

    Sounds great! Nice playing!! Really.

    But, I guess I missed it... you say this is the same tune, etc. etc. But, I never heard your orginal.

    So, while it was excellent drumming, without the other instruments I was underwhelmed. I mean, I enjoyed your playing; but, I'd have liked it much better hearing you play along with the song and comparing the drum sounds in the mix between the two versions.

    I understand that this post was meant to hear it dry without FX. But, still...

    Anyway... as you know: opinions are like a**holes. Everybody's got one and most of them stink! So, pay me no nevermind!

      As soon as the track is finished I'll post it. I posted this so you can compare the drum sounds and how they respond to input with nothing around them.

        Hi jrcel,

        I agree with TNT - nice playing - how long did you practice that song? Your kd must have taken a bit of work to get it right.

        I note that the snare has a lot of ring at about A440 even without effects, and one of your ride cymbals has a fairly dominant pitch to it too - have you tuned them to the key of the song?

        I haven't heard Minstrel for years......was Mr Barlow the Tull drummer on that one? he was great live when I saw them in the 70s

          No, I was just checking for machine gunning and to get close to a '70s sound as I could, I've found that when edrums are dead it's a givaway that they're artificial. Here's the original smf guide track with my part so you can run it through your own stuff to compare, I'll include my original sound file I sent into the studio.





          Here's the completed drum part with the midi guide track:
