- Drummers spend hours trying to get perfect spacing and weight between hits.

- Meanwhile programmers try to build variation between hits to make computer generated parts more like a real drummer.

- Drummers spend hours working to clicks to try to achieve perfect time and timing.

- Meanwhile programmers work on "groove timing" and various techniques to NOT be perfect, to give programmed drum parts more feel.

- Drummers revel in the "greats" for having swing, feel, and deep pocket, then spend countless hours trying to rid themselves of feel, swing, and pocket.

It's a tricky and elusive game this drumming thing... :)

I guess a proficient drummer needs to be able to play like a metronome when necessary and with feel when the situation calls for it. :banghead:
