    Are you after programming advice, rhythm assistance, mixing ideas? I'm not sure what to offer you.

    Yeah I'm wondering the same thing...So you have a drum machine beat. And?

    I will give you one word of advice based on what I heard. DON't ride on a crash cymbal...Ir's annoying as heel, a drummer would never do it and it makes it very obvious that it wasn't a drummer that programmed it. Besides that, I don't know what you want.

    Ok, so i shouldn't have "never". Rarely.

    Did you hear the drum beat? Riding on a crash Frooty Loops crash? That should NEVER happen.

    I agree......I thought that you also meant real drummers on acoustic drums.

    Riding the crash like that is actually kind of common, unless I'm mistaking it for another cymbal. I'd only do it on a larger crash and use the smaller ones for accents. I hear it all the time during big choruses in hard rock, hardcore, etc. I'm not a drummer, mind you, but I program a bit and go by what I hear drummers use.
    I can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.

    Not to say that drummers don't ride on their crashes, but often what sounds like that is a very open pair of hi hats. Either way, because of the decay of the cymbals on many drum machines, it doesn't sound good programmed, in my opinion.
