Default What is the best way to quantize audio drums?

That's it. Getting the drums smoooth and steady, sounding in time with the grid.

How do you do it?

What's the most practical way to quantize multitrack drums to the grid?

Thanks

Ed.

Have you tried the tempo mapping tutorial stickied on the top of this page?

Most practical way is to slice and slip n slide by hand
Might take a bit longer but the results are more natural than anything else

1) Get a free trial of Melodyne editor
2) Read your drums into it
3) Quantize them. Also,
4) Mess about with the pitch, amplitude and formants on everything you've ever recorded
5) Say "wow" quite a lot
6) Talk very nicely to Santa.

This method usually takes me about 30-45 minutes per song... to setup auto-pocket and the trigger track and all that is required to do it "easier" also takes about 30-45 minutes.

I choose the slip editing method because I KNOW its been done right.

He's right, you know.
Sometimes it really does take a human being making the decisions.

And once you get into the swing of it, split cut slice dice move gets pretty easy to do.
Heck, even I am doing it.

I get in a trance when I'm doing slip editing...

Slice > Click > Move > Slice > Click > Move

kinda like eating pistachio nuts...
