The ill.Methodology: drum sound design
Many producers assume drum sound design is hard and that they should "leave it to the professionals". Off the shelf, or placeholder drums are a hallmark of amateur work. Your drums are the focus, power, punch, and texture of every mix. If your drums don't bang, your song won't either. The good news is you can learn to make your own drum sounds today. The easiest, and best way to learn this vital skill is through the videos, racks, and instruments contained within The ill.Methodology: Drum Sound Design.
Most commercial soundpacks are from synths you already own. Once you know the process you’ll be able to make your own drums and save tons of money too.
Drum sound design is like an onion: there’s always another layer! With videos that show exactly why, what, & how, you’ll master the art of crafting elegant drums for every situation.
You’ll learn everything it takes to make drum synths in this course.
To get you rolling, I’ve also included my own drum synths within the projects.
When you’re making your drums from scratch, there are effects that can make a world of difference.
I’ve included racks that’ll help your drums stand out of every song you make.
Music production is always evolving, and I want you to stay on the cutting edge. You will receive free updates for life so your skills never goes out of date.
