Cool vid! Thanks for sharing. Do you recommended this humanizing process before or after tracking other instruments? I usually do this last.

it depends on the vibe of the music of course. for metal/heavy rock, it shouldn't make such a big difference. for lighter stuff, before might be a good idea.

Really nice tutorial For a extended Version i would assume to tell sth about:

- How to turn a real - for example Snare - track into midi for mixing samples with the real drums
- How to edit more complex drumpatterns (like rolls or very fast Bassdrum patterns)
