    In the moment,.. hopefully.
    Any one ever set up a drum machine and put a delay after and get some really cool time signatures and trippy sounds to play along with.
    I tried it a while back and it can really open you up and make you stretch to come up with stuff to play over it.

    It does make it near impossible for a real drummer to reproduce though.

    For a home demo I do it all the time. Makes it really easy to get a Skinny Puppy/90s industrial sound. You will not find a drummer able to reproduce the sound unless they are on electronic kit and they have impeccable timing. You probably would need to use a click track live.

    I think playing with an echo helped Stewart Copeland stay in time! (The same method applies to guitar playing, sometimes.) This effect is sprinkled throughout middle-period Police material.

    Yes I do this quite often. Maschine from Native Instruments with a Saffire Pro 40, I can output individual drum channels out and back in to sample. Very nice. Usually use the big box deluxe memory man as my main studio delay, looks very nice sitting on the desk. :)

    sure, hard for a drummer to drum along to, but maybe just use the setup for that song and the drummer can bang on some other thing or push some buttons or something?

    I use a couple of drum machines with a series of pedals. Current order is Akai Miniak/Boss DR-110 -> EHX Pitch Fork -> Boss Terra Echo -> Ibanez DE7 delay/echo -> Alesis Ineko -> JHS Colour Box -> mixer/DAW/amp

    playing with this stuff is my idea of fun. get a fun beat going, start turning knobs, get weird with it. woof.

    It was popular in reggae dub back in the '70s. Everything in the echo machine. First track on this vid.
