Are you a drummer excited by all the amazing sonic options available to you, but you just don’t know how they work? In this video tutorial series drum technology guru Luke Oswald teaches you the nuts and bolts of cutting edge drum sample technology and how you can use it creatively for both recording and live performance!
Luke starts with a basic introduction of what sample technology is available for drummers, and why you might want to take advantage of it, followed by a discussion on the necessity of extended “sample pools” to avoid the dreaded “machine gun effect” that renders your rolls static and lifeless.
After that, Luke explores how to use mixer and microphone channels to create a realistic multi-channel drum recording, and how you can manipulate drum samples creatively to create entirely new drum sounds.
Finally, Luke concludes the series with performance examples. He performs on his electronic drums with all mixer channels enabled to demonstrate how everything sounds live, and then he shows you how mixer and envelope changes affect the sound of your drums in real-time.
