I'm expecting a variation of "turn off snap and nudge certain tracks a few milliseconds either forwards or backwards in time" technique.
When mixing, we routinely move sounds left and right in the stereo field, forward and backwards using compression and reverb so why not create separation by moving sounds in time.
Live drummers and bass players do this sort of thing all the time, often subconsciously.
This technique can dramatically alter the feel of not just rhythmic instrument tracks such as drums and bass but also pads and softer sounds.
Compare this dead straight timing:
With this (exaggerated) adjusted timing.
That's kinda what I was expecting the video to be about.
But I'm too tight-fisted to pay a dollar to find out.
Thanks bro, you saved us a dollar
So actually it is some kind of antiquantizing ...
It's more of a sort of micro drift. Teeny tiny movements in time that don't change where the beat is but changes how it feels.
Try this...tap out a simple rhythm with your hands on your desk...
Now let your hands go all floppy like you've been drugged... you are probably behind the beat now and it sounds loose.
Now imagine you've had seven expresso coffees and you are impatient to use the lavatory.. you are probably a tad in front of the beat now and it feels urgent.
Obviously in PT you dont have to take drugs or drink way too much coffee; you just slide the track fwds or back in time.
It's probably that kinda thing, the timing trick I recon.
Has anyone watched it?
haha, i can play very good out of timing, without drugs or coffee
But therefore i can't play in time, so i always have to move the notes around
I didn't watch it.
i have to do this shit on every song, on every track, and sometimes with every note... especially the midi ones....
i think thats why some times my songs loose there groove... even though they dont feel mechanized...
just need to eliminate machines as much as possible. more human less machine...
gotta have a drummer who knows how to record
