Well, welcome back to creative live on the music and audio channel. This is our final segment with sam para on making using drum samples. We have a whole bunch of people to thank people that make this course possible. People behind the scenes here on the production team, as well as a bunch of friends. Sam there's, a bunch of people on this board right now, pure annoys records, trash talk, hairball audio mike, we did an awesome pre show with mike say say, say some good things about the first ball carry our drummer who played in the dance hall coast, this song that he plays eyes, a song called nineteen sixty seven that's on an album released by paranoids records. So thanks to jake from paranoid and carry for letting us use that song and show that also thanks to trash truck for letting us open this segment, we're having devon play a longer one of songs thanks to mike from hair volume for coming and hanging out and being best friends also, he's donated a lot of gear for me to use tomorrow ...

You recall two guitars, a bass so if you want to get out of that part tomorrow, you want to join because it'll be fun. Lastly, I want to thank twelve gauge records and save it to zombie because they're going to be the band that I will use tomorrow, and I also made some trump sables from sabertooth zombie bees in this session, so thanks, sam.

And really we learned everything myself, I like to do that also, I hope that this entire process has giving you insight into the basic theories and principles necessary to make sure that we get good drum sounds and respect our germ performance being like phase tuning rooms, mike's preempts, signal flow. All that. I hope that was great information, and that I didn't even get too fast for anyone. So if I did, because I talk so fast and I'm such a hyperactive individual, don't be afraid, don't be. Don't be afraid, tio chime in and ask, and we'll spend the last q and a having ideally, some really cool questions, and I'll be happy to talk about whatever and anything and whenever.

Class Description

Drum samples are a staple in modern music recording. Drummers can’t deliver a pitch perfect performance every time – drum samples free you up to make small mistakes that you correct for in the recording studios. Learn how to use them.

In Making and Using Drum Samples with Sam Pura you’ll learn all about recording, editing, and placing drum samples in a mix. Sam will help you identify weak spots in a performance and show you how a sample can reinforce your tones, add depth to a recording and fill in the gaps. You’ll learn how to record samples from a drum kit, edit them, and then place them in your mix using Beat Detective and Slate Trigger. You’ll master the art of integrating drums samples that sound authentic and natural, not copy and pasted.

If you are ready to get solid drum tracks that cut through the mix, this course is for you.

This is actually money well spent! A good deal of knowledge to be learned. Much better than the Eyal Levi class, that I spent nearly 8 times the cash on!


Crazy useful knowledge on Making & Using Drum Samples. Sam is the man, and throws in tons of tips and tricks along the way on building gobos and room treatment and other random production ideas, this class is definitely worth it!!
