rb drum timing

Is it just me that thinks plenty of songs have their hi hats and cymbal timing off? Like songs that are way to fast on the hi hats while it sounds slower and transition to the crash cymbal just wrong. just feels off and I can't figure out if it's just rb4 if the whole series has been like that...like the song will have a gap from hi hat and cymbal in the soung but you just blast through it on rockband....just feels unnatural...

    Everything syncs up for me
  • don't find any of the timing off like being charted wrong? what's with the ghost notes in deftones my own summer too. i think it actually ruins the songs...

    Oh yeah, ive def mentioned mischarting, but not actual timing issues.

    You don’t like the actual charting of ghost notes?

    They didn’t chart them on some songs, but I’d like for it to be as authentic as possible. Except for on Rosanna. Those ghost notes sound hellish on an already busy song.
  • Maybe just for my own summer....the song is pretty easy I feel they put the ghost notes in just to make it a bit more difficult. also the way you hit the drum to register it is different than an actually soft hit on real drums...back to mischarting...do you think it's the speed of the hi hats that or just drum fills etc? thoughts on the competitors charting?

    It’s not different. Just try it. You have to ghost it slowly or learn in the process. Regardless, you’re hitting it at the same time as the drummer and the ghosts sync up.
  • i suppose but with the rubber drums and the speed of the charting it's more a double hit than a ghost note...just seems odd and wrong to me...just my opinion...as for the other songs i feel a bunch are done faster than the song actually plays...at least the cymbal work...

    If you could cite some examples that might help. Can't say I've encountered that myself, though.

    other than the occasional inconsistency in calibration values (which for me at least lately seems somewhat improved) i haven't noticed a timing issue. some songs do seem to have much tighter hit windows than others though, that can make them feel off if your calibration isn't totally dialed.

    as for ghost notes, my position has always been that they should be charted if they're audible during the actual song. if you can only hear them by cranking up the isolated drum track, then they don't need to be there. i guess if they're audible, they're not truly "ghost" notes, but some ghosts are less visible than others.

    I have problems with Dream On by Aerosmith, it's buggy IMHO.
