Join J. Scott Giaquinta for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of EDM Production Techniques: Drums.
If you're a premium member of lynda.com you have access to the exercise file used throughout this course. Once you've download the ZIP files from this course's page on the website, you can double click to unzip the file. Inside I've provided you with an Ableton Live 9.1 session file for each video. If you have use a different dav the production and mixing techniques that I'll be sharing with you will still apply, but you'll have to import the samples from the sample folder. These wave files here, and so on into your dav choice to use my sounds. Alternatively you can use your own materials and follow along with my techniques.
You may want to acquire trial versions of some of these plug-ins I'll be using in my demonstrations such as SPL transient designer and BX control VT from BrainWorks, both available through Plugin Alliance. And also a PSP VintageWarmer2 tape saturator. I also use Native Instrument's Battery 4 in one of the videos. They also offer a demo version. If you're a monthly member or annual member of lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files. You can easily follow along using your own material. So let's get underway.
This course features Ableton Live and Native Instruments' Battery drum sampler, but you can use these techniques in any DAW of your choice.
