For shame

Haven't been frequenting this forums as much as I used to, but I was just laughing to myself recently, because of the fact that . . .

I dont even program a lot of stuff anymore. Basically, I program the bass drum and snare drum myself, and for everything else I've been cutting up and chopping up loops.

2012, era of lazy producers.

I just get so annoyed programming like shakers and hi hats . . . im like whatever I'll just cut up a sample and drop it in.

For many years the goal of a drummer for dance tracks was to sound as precise as possible with some groove. The goal of drum programming today is to take a precise drum loop or pattern and make it sound groovy with human mistakes. Ho ho.

but i found listening back, it just didnt satisfy me cutting samples / loops - it has it's own cool sound but I much prefer to actually "write" stuff now

I dont write dance music so actually the bass drum and snares aren't always 4/4

Whats fun is to take percussion loops and put them into RMX and force a 4/4 into a 3/4 or another variant and see what happens.
