I LOVE tracking cowbell as I am among other things a percussionist but sometimes the snare hits are off (cause it can't possibly be me) ;>) and I can't read minds. Ha ha! So how do I trigger my cowbell off the snare so I don't have to line them up. Is this possible without a sampling plug in? :>) Thanks.

Seems like either aligning the cowbell track to the snare track with audio quantize somehow or putting my cowbell sample
into a sample triggering software and strapping it to another snare track same as trigger but one that will actually load and play my sample are the two options. Which is best? I can't figure out how to use audio quantize for this. And don't even need it for anything else.

If I wanted to be a smartass, I'd say : learn to play in time.. (but I'm not)

There is many plugs that can aligned them and some of those are included in some DAWs. Beat detective is one of them.
If you want to do it simple, you can zoom both tracks and aligned them manually.
