    I think your spot on in your opinion of quantization. I too think certain genres like electronica lend themselves to and are even expected to sound mathematically perfect. It all depends on the style. As an artist who doesn’t have the luxury of owning a drum set I have gone to great lengths to try to recreate the human nuances of a live drum track. I prefer it not to sound “perfect” obviously when I’m trying to “trick” the listener into thinking they are hearing a live recorded drummer as opposed to a midi sequence. Thanks for writing this article. Good thoughts.

    I was going to buy your Latin drum files but after reading this I can’t tell whether you have quantized the drummer’s performance or not? A good drummer will not need to be quantized and, in fact it will ruin his “feel”, his style. And then you have a drum machine. So, I’d like to know if you’ve quantized your drummers or not?

      GRRueger – Thanks for your question.

      To be honest, the files sold on this site come from a mix of sources. I can’t say for sure if the files in the LATIN collection in particular have been quantized. But I’m guessing that most of them have.

      What you should do is, download some of the free sample files. This will give you a good idea of how the rest of the collection sounds.
