CLICK TRACKS! Practice Routine: click track training example

Posted: Sat May 19, 2012 12:51 pm



The click tracks have all been created, finally! I am now working on implementing the click tracks in the practice routine builder. It might be a couple of days before I finish the update and work out any bugs.

For now, I have created an example routine of how I would envision using these click tracks. Essentially you loop through the exercise with successively less and less clicks. At the beginning of each loop, you play along with the exercise mp3. Playing with the exercise mp3 is a great way to train your ears and increase your ability to play CLEAN.

Next up is quarter note clicks. This is probably the most common way people practice with a normal metronome.

Next is a rep with half note clicks, and finally a rep with whole note clicks. These 'sparse' clicks will really test your ability to keep time without the 'crutch' of quarter note clicks. I also find playing with the half note and whole note clicks provides a good opportunity to check your own sound quality - with so few clicks, you really have a chance to listen carefully to the sound of every note coming off the practice pad or drum.

---------------------------------

Give it a try and let me know what you think! I will report back when the software is updated.

The click tracks should now be fully integrated into the practice routine builder / editor. Have at it! :D

Also, please report any bugs that you might encounter. I haven't done a tone of testing on it since the update.
