On the Soundbrenner Pulse
My advice to a drummer who's having trouble following a click, staying with a click in a studio or in a live situation would be immediately get a product like the Soundbrenner Pulse. It needs to be a part of your arsenal.
It's discreet, you can put it anywhere on your body, you feel the click and you're ready to go.
You can even use it with a band that doesn't use a click and stay more in time, and you don't feel so confined to that audible click-click-click. You can feel like you're being held down by a traditional metronome.
On the importance of using a metronome
Every single gig out there requires you to play along to a click or a metronome. Be it a project studio, a major session in a major studio, a live session with tracks - everyone's playing to a click so they can stay on the grid.
If you're not on time, [the engineers] aren't able to cut you up and make the song properly.
