An In-depth Guide to Drum Programming Techniques
by Mo Volans
In this tutorial we take a look at the many different ways in which we can program drums in a modern DAW-based environment. This is really aimed at the beginner to intermediate user and will clarify the jargon used and de-mystify some of the techniques used by the more experienced drum programmer.
In each of the steps I’ll look at a different technique for creating your drum patterns and talk about real world situations, using different DAWs. Don’t worry about not having the software used here, as most of the technique discussed is pretty generic and usually there is an alternative within the DAW of your choice.
