Foundational Drum Loop Basics is geared towards producers wanting to improve their drum loops.
You will learn many of the fundamentals of creating a powerful drum loop WITHOUT the use of plugins.
These basics allow you to create the exact flavor you are looking for your tracks.
Drum loops are the foundation of your track, and if your drum loop is boring or bland, your listeners will quickly get bored.
This all comes down to proper sound selection and timing.
There are 5 videos included in this course (I have thrown in a bonus video, too! - 3 Tips for Better Drum Loops)
Example Drum Loop
We first discuss different aspects of your drum loop with a slideshow. I am sure you will learn a lot, stretching the boundaries of what you currently know about music production.
Next, we go over an example drum loop. We later create our own loop from scratch, which you see step-by-step, but in this example drum loop video, you see exactly the techniques I have used beforehand. This allows the knowledge to sink in prior before we create our own loop.
In the Urban Loop, this is where we create our loop from scratch. You get to see powerful techniques such as velocity, panning, layering, and sound placement. Sound placement alone is a technique which takes years to get a comfortable feel for. But with my safe spots methodology, you will quickly catch on which makes your beatmaking process much more enjoyable and exciting!
The tempo video shows you a cool technique which a lot of producers do when it comes to tempo.
And finally, in the Dance Loop video we create another drum loop from scratch, but this time with a dance feel to our drum loop. This way you can see what goes into both an urban drum loop as well as a dance drum loop.
By the end of this course, it should shape your drum loops to the next level. If you are newer to production, this will open your eyes to the techniques available to you while making your beats.
