In this video, Ben Lindell shows us how he uses Beat Detective in order to lock an acoustic drum performance to the grid. The main challenge when using Beat Detective is to preserve the groove and feel of the track. Fortunately, Ben came up with a protocol that allows tightening of the performance without sucking the life out of it.

A person could posses the skills that Ben has but still not be able to convey them to others. Ben also has an exceptional ability to teach. Thank you Ben for another great lesson!

Its clean,no Crossfades and more accurate

Great Video I like how you break everything down in details so that the average person can understand.

Great video as always! I wish I had discovered the Trigger Pad before, it's a true life saver with crossfades... Elastic Audio is great, although maybe a little trickier. I used to avoid artifacts on cymbals by deleting all the unnecessary markers and leaving them only on kick, snare and toms (can be kinda boring). With the Trigger Pad on Beat Detective I get perfect drums in a matter of minutes.
Life is good even for drummers. :-)

Ben! You, and Fab have been my guides for this music jungle that I am traveling through. Thank you!
I have watched this video in hopes that I can use 'beat detective' to sync the banjo with the click track. He is only
off a few times but it really sticks out and I want to highlight the banjo in this song that I am mixing with Pro Tools 10. You have explained it so well, and I truly appreciate your step by step method. Now I'll experiment. Thanks again for being there for all of us who need you and Fab! Sending a big HUG to Pure Mix!!

@Daniel_costa, I know I use beat detective and not elastic audio because of how EA renders the cymbals on a drumkit. You can get some pretty nasty artifacts from the stretching with EA, and I like knowing that I won't get that with beat detective. I also personally like the workflow of using beat detective much better. Cheers!

great video! thanks, I often use the Trigger Pad adding 5 or 10ms just to avoid most of the problems with crossfades.
