Ben starts processing using his standard processing chain including EQ, compression, distortion and more. – Chapter 5 – Talks about analog and parallel compression and how to apply it. You’ll learn how to mimic overhead mics on your drums by using parallel compression and reverb. – Chapter 6 – Here you’ll build on the dry loop using Learn how to get a more unique sound by creating fills and using additional processing. – Chapter 7 – Here Ben does an analysis of the drum loop and talks recaps what was done to get to that point. – Chapter 8 – Learn how a slower BPM & other things can help you create different drum feels. – Chapter 9 – Explore how to get the most versatility out of all your samples and sounds. – Chapter 10 – Similar to lower BPMs, learn how higher BPM loops can be added to create a harder sound and explore how using the “less is more” principle can give you an even bigger drum sound.
– Chapter 11 – The course finishes with even more bus techniques and how you can make all the different drum sounds and textures have a similar feel that fit well within your productions.
