I have to be honest. I don't see the point of having the band play together to such a programmed backing. Might it not be better use it to get sounds and then have them play free, including no click, to capture an organic groove. Can edit and time stretch later if necessary, but it might have more feel than just playing the same thing every time

Seems like the overheads are panned opposite the rest of the kit.
