Default Quantizing Drums with 7.4?

I am recording my band now and the drums are off in some places.

If I upgrade to 7.4 can I quantize the multi tracked drums using elastic time?

If I can how effective is it?

Will it work on fast fills?

What is the best way to get the drums in perfect time? (aside from having a perfect drummer..)

did you record to a click track? If so, I would say that beat detective is your best bet (music production toolkit).. If not to a click, then elastic is probably your best bet... but not suuuper easy like BD in my opionion.

I don't know...i guess it depends on how busy (and sloppy) the drummer is. If he's playing straight than EA will work just fine.

We did not record to a click. Beat detective for LE seems to only work on one track at a time, Is there still a way to use it?

The drummer plays pretty well but it is slightly off since I took the best parts from a few takes some of the parts are slightly slower or faster in some parts.

The parts are not too complicated but there are some fast fills.

What is my best option (even if its the hardest)?

If you get the Music production pack, its multi-track, just the same as HD.... But like you said, not to a click.. So i would say Elastic Audio is your best bet for sure... Check out the digi site for some tutorials on elastic audio... I only played with it a little before i came back to 7.3, but I would say just mess with it, and you'll start to get the hang of it, its fairly self-explanatory for the most part.., the PDf manual is definently worth a read through or two, and then another once you've messed with it, but overall, just astart playing around. Its got some odd little features that can trick you up, but for the most part its pretty simple and easy to use.. (IMO)
