Sonic Academy proudly welcomes back Washington based Progressive House sensei Enamour for a new masterclass in How To Make Better Drums.
These 8 videos are packed full of pro secrets, tips and tricks to help you create the finest sounding beats.
Starting with Enamour's process for the all-important kick, we carry out an extensive use of chopping up and editing sample loops to build our own unique rhythmic grooves. Always focussing on the transients and envelope manipulation of each hit, we layer and offset our drums on the grid using randomisation to help with realism.
We also go in the other direction and completely alter a rhythmic loop using filters and grain delay to get cool abstract effects before checking out Enamour's drum buss chain and send/return effects used on all the elements.
Finally, we look at a way to create a rhythm from any sound with clever use of a gate, give more realism to our hits using round-robin sampling and some different methods of widening our groove in the stereo field.
One for all abilities with a ton of valuable insider knowledge from a true professional exclusive here on the world's best tutorial site!
