Drum Programming Masterclass Part Two: Samplers And Sequencing
This course is designed for those interested to learn the basics of drum programming, making hip hop, funk and footwork beats, the three most important elements of drum pattern and the six keys to understand meter and pulse.
About This CourseBeginner
This course uses Ableton Live and some Logic, but it will be easy to follow 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.
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.
Also in the class we will be doing a number of analysis projects. That just means we will load up some tracks, and reconstruct 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.
Who this course is for:
- Students who are making tracks, but want a better handle on how to program drums.
- Students are interested in electronic music and want to learn the fundamentals of drum programming.

By the end of this course, you will have learned samplers and sequencing in drum programming.
