"Knowing I was going to have to be combing the books for this production, I approached this process as I usually do. I lay them out next to each other and see what is the easiest to catch. Then I start working layer by layer adding more and more. I was lucky as I was able to catch around 90% of the percussion parts along with 100% of the kit parts. For the glockenspiel, crotales and timpani notes I used Apple’s Logic Pro on the Alesis SamplePad and edited them to sound as natural as possible for what was notated in the book.”
