Hi all... recently I saw this new forum (maybe with time the best audio forum because its very large boards). I have a little problem fixing drums. I've recorded 7-8 tracks of live drums. How can I quantize this tracks for fixing out of time hits or for thighten up? (or groovin' a sterile & clinical live performance). I do it now by manual editing... cut & drag the hits (to a grid or groove template), trim them (no silences) and smooth (crossfades). But I spend much time with it. I'd like to know how much time have I spend with this? I do special care in not much edit for not liveless. I'd like to know if there is a better way to do this... or to speed up the work. Tips of engineers who are experience with it. I know major studios do that (Andy Snitzer for example), but I don't know how much in the recordings we're hearing todays (it must be a secret like the use of AutoTune). I use logic & nuendo now, and I've worked with protools in studios... maybe with a tool like Beat Detective (automatic groove extraction- tempo map creation-trimming-smoothing) from Protools 5.1. But it isn't released at date and I do this kind of editing in a laptop (non Protools TDM). Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english... cheers.
