I would say, rather, that they happen all of the time, but that no one really cares about these subtle details. I am not even sure that I care about them, at least for my own music.
"not happening" is just a figure of speech. I'm a beatnik or something.
We're saying the same thing but at cross-purposes now, not sure why.
Because WAR!! That's why.I don't find your super-exotic scenarios that exotic really, in fact.
No, I found the reason in your other post, in Samples. We're saying PRACTICALLY the same thing. But I was buffaloed by 'Bill Bruford China cymbal' as a particular thing which can't be sussed.
I use drum samples and never drums. You do not use drum samples. So here is a difference between knowledge and assumption.
WAR is ON!!11!1!!
About time too.
I actually used drum samples a great deal from 2004 to 2013, because I lived in an apartment and had no choice. But since I bought a house (or rather, since I finished setting up a studio in it, which took over a year) it just doesn't make sense. Plus, I have a really beautiful kit that I have been working on for years, and which is set up exactly right for me, so playing is actually fun.
I actually find sampling to be really interesting. I just don't need it for drums anymore.
it seems we share something in common, at 57 I bought my first house in 2016. I too had to deal with the confines of apartment dwelling (bought my first sub-woofer here) though for me it was miking up a guitar amp proper. 17 months later my studio has expanded into three rooms and one is my miking room which is indeed large enough for a double kick kit.
So let me take a second to say congrats on your new house/studio
