i got a little problem. if i was on stage and i needed to use beats from a computer based drum machine on stage (but i want to leave room for improv or whatever so i cant just put the track together and play over it) what would be the best way of doing it? i was thinking of using two laptops into a mixer so the laptops would be like turntables with beats and stuff on them but ill never have that kinda money so any sugestions?

if i could persuade phil selway to play 4 me i would be grand but that aint happenin. and i want a drum machine not a drummer anyway. its all about the sound and you cant do this stuff on drums. unless you have six arms. in which case give me a call

Well then, like I said, program the beats you need and have a sound engineer play them through the PA, and obviously you signal to him when he needs to stop.

Simple as.

but id have to pay a sound engineer then. and im talking very small clubs so that isnt realy an option. i was thinkin if i copied the beats onto 2 cds and ran them through two discmen and a mixer and i could set the track with say beat A on it to repeat and have the other discman with beat B on it ready to play and i could press play on beat B when i stop beat A. and then when beat B is playin i could get beat C ready. do you think that would work?

I suppose so, but it would look and sound pretty shitty. Try getting a real job for a little while so you can afford a sound tech.

And why don't these places have sound techs. anyway? Who operates the PA?
