comment Difference between mixing and mastering
In other words, it seems as if you mean that the mixing engineer makes sure that the song itself sounds as it should, considering relative volume and volume normalization. The mastering engineer can then make the song as a whole, but also individual instruments, sound better? Because that's different from what Steve is saying, I think. (He's speaking about a whole CD and mixing tracks relatively to each other)

comment Is it possible to have “Perfect Tempo”
PS: not trying to attack you here at all. Just trying to figure out if you're looking down on people who use a metronome or not. When everything needs to be perfect (e.g. For a choreography) I'd rather play with a metronome, just to be safe (a drummer can be as perfectly in time as he can, when his band members aren't, he won't be either no matter how hard he tries). However, playing with a 'regular' band, live, I'd never use a metronome.

comment Is it possible to have “Perfect Tempo”
What do you mean 'he wouldn't have lasted a gig'? Having played in many different types of bands, I'm not ashamed to say that sometimes a metronome was required externally (e.g. by a choreographer who insists on minuscule perfect time), and sometimes I myself used one for the sake of perfect rhythm when recording different instruments independently. There's no shame at all in ever using a metronome to perfect your timing, though that doesn't mean your rhythm is bad. I've heard guys humbly play with metronomes, even though they managed perfectly without one, but they did for the sake of ease.

comment What are the disadvantages of using an electronic drumset?
I have especially had many issues with the bell on a ride and the top of a hi-hat to trigger well.

comment What are the disadvantages of using an electronic drumset?
Just out of curiosity, I wonder what you think about the samples of my mid-end kit. It's a Roland TD-9KX. Here's a sample. Disclaimer: this is me playing a year and a half back, though I'm not trying to get more views or anything like that by posting this. I'm genuinely curious what you think about the sound. (Do use headphones or anything that can produce good lows.) Oh, now that I hear that song again; another down-side of e-kits are that they are ultimately simply triggers. Therefore, sometimes the triggers don't trigger.

Basically what I'm trying to say here is that I don't think your last paragraph is relevant. There are many good e-kits that are of course e-kits with some disadvantages that you mention, but I also believe that you make these disadvantages sound worse than they are. Don't get me wrong, I'd choose an acoustic kit over an e-kit any time, but an e-kit doesn't sound and feel as bad as your answer seems to imply. But that's just my 2 cents. Apart from that, good summary!

comment What are the disadvantages of using an electronic drumset?
Owning a decent electronic kit, and having played MANY in the past I believe that your post makes a lot of good remarks but is quite too subjective as a whole. The feel is off and the sound is not great: how is the feel off? Do you mean the delay between sound and hitting? Minimal, especially on new kits. It's also not true that kits "sound bad unless you go to the most expensive kits", not at all. I personally think they sound great, especially since most kits allow you to modify preset kits, and create new ones. Finally, meshed e-kits aren't expensive, compared to an acoustic set.

The phrase just looked at fake book confuses me. I have no idea what to make of this question.

Won't these drummers simply use a metronome? I don't think that on events where performance and choreography are of so much importance, they'd let drummers (or bassists) play without a metronome. I've been part of such bands in the past and even though the level was quite amateuristic, I - the drummer - played with a metronome. Obviously, there are better drummers out there than me, but to make things perfect a metronome seems an easy and almost required add.
