This is a class designed for music producers who are ready to get serious about drum programming. The art of programming drums on a MIDI grid, in drum machines, or with audio files can be tricky to master but when you finish this class, your tracks will have the extra energy that comes from magesy download professional drum tracks. I’ll be using Ableton Live and some Logic in this course, but it will be easy to following along on whatever program you are most comfortable with. We will start the class off with explanation of working with samplers, and working on the MIDI grid. Then we will learn to adapt that pattern to work for a number of different styles, including Drum and Bass, Trap, and Dubstep.
DRUM PROGRAMMING MASTERCLASS, PART 2: SAMPLERS & SEQUENCING is a comprehensive class – that means there are three (3!) different classes that together make the complete sequence. This is Part 2.
Also in the class we will be doing a number of analysis projects. That just means we will load up some tracks, and re-construct the beat in the track. Doing this will help us to see how those beats are built, and guide us in making our own beats.
Topics include: – Tools of the trade – Where to find good, free, samples (My favorite sites!) – Tools of the trade – Why work with samplers? – How samplers work – The classic hardware samplers: The Roland 808 – Note On, Note Off Issues – Velocity – Drum and Bass patterns – “Playing It In” – Quantization Settings – Controllers – Recording Controllers – Using Ableton’s Groove Settings – Dubstep Patterns – Using Effects in a Drum Pattern – Filtering – Delay Effects – Reversed Sounds – Pitch Shifting – Elements of Trap – Programming Trap Beats – Dynamic Effects – Ghost Notes – Noise Risers – Humanism … And much more!!!
Analysis Tracks: – John B: Up All Night – Sub Focus: X-Ray – Konflict: The Beckoning – Skrillex: Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites – Flux Pavillion: I Can’t Stop – Gent and Jawns: Turn Up – Bro Safari: The Drop
You will not have another opportunity to learn Beat Programming in a more comprehensive way that this. Start here. The course is a roadmap to MAKING STUNNING TRACKS with better drums. All the tools you need to produce great drum tracks are included in this course and the entire course is based on real-life experiences – not just academic theory.
