    that's why I love Cubase.

    Stack recording!
    set your tracks to "lanes fixed" and you'll be seeing the different takes on top of each other, just highlight'em, cut, delete the section of the take you don't like, crossfade. done.

    mom, gonna take some screenshots

    Here you go:

    (names of the tracks aren't correct (I just copied them to show it to you, usually they'd be like "kick take1", "kick take" etc.


    so in this case 3 takes, stack-recorded. to see it like that switch to "lanes fixed"

    [​IMG]



    now just cut at the beat where you wanna have the separate thingies

    [​IMG]



    bow delete the takes you don't need (note that the lowest take is always green, the other ones are grey...the green one is the one you're hearing, that's why it'd even be enough to delete or mute the take BeLOW (newer) the one you wanna use, I usually delete all unncessairy takes tho, keeps the project cleaner)

    [​IMG]



    Hilight all and hit "x" (crossfade), if necessairy adjust the xfade by dragging it

    [​IMG]



    consolidate

    [​IMG]



    switch to "lanes off" to disable the stack-view

    [​IMG]


    that way you compile your drums in a couple of minutes per song.

    My money's on getting the drummer to count to 4 properly & to stop hitting like a little girl.

    Ok, the solution would be to change the drummer :lol: Hey Oz, I've been checking your drum guide while writing my own. Great stuff! Lots of good info there. My approach will be a little different. Not much though.

    :lol:

    In my short amount of experience, I've found you can usually tell a bad drummer from how threatened he feels by DKFH.

    I'm drawing figures. I have overheads, snare, kick, toms and ambience ready. Anything else needed?

    Looking forward to reading this. It'll be cool to see what different approaches there are to the guide Oz posted, and to pick and choose from the different ideas.

    I think your guides are excellent.

    Appreciate the time you put into it.

    I hope to see many other guides covering bass, vocals, mastering.

    The next guide will most likely be:

    Extreme Master Bus Processing

    It will cover mostly saturation and compression.
