I realise I will need alot of practice on the machine. But would the end result sound good in a live pub band senario. I have no experience with sampling machines and just need some advice. Thanks guys.
I'm a drummer/bassist and i know what u mean about feeling gutted...
Because of my day job i developed tendonitis in both forearms...so i went from being able to play 3 sets a night,to barley being able to finish 1 song before my forearms,elbow's etc felt like someone lit em Fire...lol
The diffence betwen playing live drums and finger drumming is kinda like the difference between running in a marathon vs cheering for the runners as they pass u by....thats not to discount the talent level of a finger drummer,
But the physical output is not even close to the same.
I mean have u ever seen a real drummer after a concert??....That cat is drenched in sweat,but a finger drummer...not so much.
But sure, the mpc can be awesome for banging out drums....i recommed finding some good acoustic drum wav sounds and building kits..... good luck
