I was wondering. Is there any kind of freeware that will help me edit drums? Heres what I'm doing.(I use drumagog so that i can cut beats and not notice it) I have recorded drums for a new album. The drums are pretty well on time. But, theres places it gets of here and there. I know it doesn't matter that much but that much but I want to be able to fix it with out cutting each beat and lining it up with the click track. Is there any software (prefferably free) that will do just minor touch up stuff?

The question is not about being rich, it really is about the ability to value something. But yes I agree these tools are expensive. Find the tools that are most important and invest into getting the right tool. One tool I like is in BFD2.0 is the ability to use room sounds and create ambient mic. Much like an added reverberation or added punch w/ the samples included. Look into Ez Drummer since it is cheaper. I saw EZ drummer today for $79 and you save $99. Sounds like triggering these programs w/ drumagog to enrich the pieces of a drum set is the way to go many a times.

Ok.. Heres whats going on.... We are opening up a studio for the first time. We've got the basics. DAW, interface, and tons of effects on the computer. We've been able to get a fairly decent sound with just that. EXCEPT for the drums. We don't have a good enough room for the drums yet. So, we saved up and got drumagog. That was a top priority of ours so we could get a good drum sound. All I am looking for at the moment is a program that will keep the drums timing solid. I could use the drums how they are now and nobody would ever even notice. Just a few beats here and there. There are so few beats that are off that its not even worth re-recording that part in the song. Its a lot easier to just cut it and move it a little bit. I was just wondering if there was a program that would fix those beats for me. Heres a link to my bands youtube channel. This is a demo that we made real quick just because we needed something fast. We are recording everything from scratch.

I know this isn't the answer you want but, the download for Sonar X1 Essentials is $60 us. There is a tool called audiosnap that allows you to snap transients to tempo. This is basically Sonar's version of ProTool's Beat Detective. It works very well on midi and some vocals. Terrible for live drums.

Thanks dude Sooo much. You have been such a big help. And thanks again for your kindness and patience. I might try your suggestion. Although it's still not top priority. My next thing is a pitch correction plugin. I'm thinkin either waves tune or the regular auto tune. Anyway... I cando some research on that myself. Thanks again for the help and God bless!
