I'm sure CLA does. I met CLA at the Namm Show at Steve's booth. Cool guy. Steven could probably give you the low down on a lot of mixers who use his samples. I believe his website also lists some users too.

why wouldn't they? how many records have an alesis D4 on them?

the trick is to understand that they use samples ADDITIVELY, in parallel... and use the SSL filters/EQ to limit the sample to whatever freq band they wanna add more OOMPH to.

2nd point, they still have the recorded OHs/Room playing with the original sound of the snare in the room.. again, in parallel to the original. parallel thinking is why we mix on LFACs.

Sample Replacing is an amateurish trick... its better to use a sample behind the original and then only use certain elements of the sample (separate with filter/EQ/gate).... pretty much every big rock modern record has something like this going on.

or do the Andy Wallace trick and use sample ambiences behind the real drums....

it's never JUST the sample playing... without the original track, room, or OHs.

ppl have a problem with this???

I don't mind some of the additive tricks - particularly triggering effects with samples, etc.. it's the wholesale replacement of drums (after quantizing them) that I dislike. I'm getting tired of hearing grid rock.

I think most of the time in commercial work, replacement is done with drumagog or equivalent. Its not programmed. Its the drummer playing and you cant quantize that. Only Midi tracks can take advantage of that. I bet alot of bands use triggered samples. Especially with the time savings and flexability. Its like the reamping craze going on. Works great especially if you have a drummer who insists on using his shit drum set.

Well I have never found a replacement for TAB then Paste each snare sample. Beat detective can put random hits out of phase and always seem out of time. Havn't tried Drumagogg but unless "ALL" tracks are replaced 100% accuratly and in phase I'm sticking to the original plan.

And yes Snare 50% original 50% sample (compressed together via distressor -5dbGR)along with plenty of room and some overhead works well for me.
Kick drum same or 100% sample if neccesery.

Yes you can - and unfortunately it's done every day on commercial releases.

Why is that funny? His business isn't quantizing drums. It's drum samples. 2 completely different things.

Perhaps I should have said something along the lines of "overdone"

I'm also a freelance engineer with major label credits where I've been forced to quantize drums (not with Ry Cooder thank God).

Isn't there something odd about an audio engineer buying samples?

Most people are just dropping in a close miked sample, why not make your own?

It's about time saving & convenience - why do something that's already been done rather well? No different from buying a hardware midi instrument in my book ...

Allmusic.com -- Rail Jon Rogut

I received a (Best Engineer non-classical) Grammy & TEC nomination for Meshell N'Degeocello's Peace Beyond Passion... Another credit would be Ry Cooder's Chavez Ravine and a few soundtracks... I work with Mike Clink a lot...

at least one very very well known british mixer/producer uses a similar technique, but with midi, and then battery to trigger samples - enabling very quick auditioning of different samples.

Another fairly well known up-and-coming producer/engineer uses a similar idea in a totally different way - he'll have me or whoever is assisting him use a very short trigger sample (ie exactly the same region, with no overlaps even on fast fills) the whole way through the song - then using pro tools' "replace all identical regions" drag-and-drop from the audio pool, he can audition different samples very quickly.

Personally I like it when the sample follows the velocity of the original track a bit - not that easy when tab and dropping samples.

And I would also add I don't really like listening to albums with total drum replacement slapped all over the songs.
Of course it's great when a big cheese in the industry uses your samples and praises their quality, but the vast majority of users are people who don't have access to a great drum room, or a great drummer, and zero budget for outsourcing their drumtracks.
This is where the Platinum/Slate/Superior products really come into their own IMO.
In the past you might use a drum machine, or in the early days of software sequencers, fairly basic sampling with 4 or 5 hits per drum.
These days you really have a legit drum session at your fingertips.
If I had the budget of a major album, I'd rather hire a great drummer and hear 'real' drums on the music though.

Not to worry - that Meshell album is AWESOME!! I was using that as a system reference disk for years after it came out.
