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 professional drum tracks.
Dr. Allen is a professional musician, top-rated instructor, and university professor. In 2017 the Star Tribune featured him as a "Mover and a Shaker," and he is recognized by the Grammy Foundation for his music education classes.
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 an 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 3: ADVANCED DRUM PROGRAMMING TECHNIQUES is a comprehensive class - that means there are three (3!) different classes that together make the complete sequence. This is Part 3.
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. And as a special bonus, I'm going to give you a LOT of MIDI files in this class of all the beats we've made. Throughout the class, I'll be giving you whole sessions you can download and use in your own tracks.
You will not have another opportunity to learn Beat Programming in a more comprehensive way than 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.
