Also thinking about putting all the dununs on the left channel and the djembe accomp on the right. That way if you want to play djembe accomp you can just fade everything to the left so you just hear the dununs. Does this make sense? Would it be useful as well?
What about tempo? Is the recording above a good speed or should I record them a bit faster/slower? Just want to get some input because I'd like to do 10 or so rhythms for uploading to this community. It'll be great for me in terms of recording and making sure my timing is right on, and if it's useful to you guys I'm happy to do it.
I wouldn;t go for dununs on the left and djembe on the right channel, it decreases the volume on the speakers and when you are playing in the house with ear plugs, you need volume. I would go for 2 versions or 3 maybe. 1) Only dununs 2) Dununs + djembes 3) (if applicable) only djembes together.
This is the way RRP has their material and its quite good for making loops. You learn the djembe parts, play them against each other, and then practice it with the dunun only part, and then play all together and solo. This is my routine, though I would like suggestions if anything can be improved in this process.
Tempo can be controlled in both the softwares I mentioned earlier keeping the pitch, so record it at your normal speed.
I suggest rhythyms that have been less available by others informative Cd or DVD's.
