Studio guru Larry Holcombe presents an in-depth video guide to putting instruments "in the pocket"! Learn everything you need to know about placing instruments and grooves ahead or behind the beat, making things groove, and much more! Course extras include downloadable loops and wav files that appear in the tutorials so you can follow along.
Larry starts by defining "in the pocket", and how once you've got it right, everything feels great and groovy. He then shows the differences between quantization and live playing, and using different swing values to inject a feeling of groove and shuffle into your beats.
Next, you'll explore how syncopation works in production, and bringing parts forward and backwards to create a more rushed or a more laid-back feel. Natural velocity and tone are then investigated and you'll see how recreate this when programing things to induce some funk into your parts.
For the rest of the series you'll explore topics like groove templates and extracting groove, sidechaining to increase groove, musical compression, polyrhythms, and putting it all together to create a truly "in the pocket" groove.
See the individual tutorial descriptions for more info. If you want to know how and why some tracks groove hard and the steps to take to put your own tracks in the pocket, this is the series for you... Watch "Putting It in the Pocket Explained®" today and watch the heads nod.

Well done - Interesting and Informative
This course is well done and flows from beginning to end. Explanations are clear. While it has several Logic only plugins, it still was helpful for me (non Logic user).
