Welcome back to Master the Art of Music Creation. Here in this Episode 7, we’ll review the drums created in the last episode, then get started on the beat. We’ll add claps, snare, and crash using Battery from Native Instruments. We’ll also use PlugSound Pro and Beast Box libraries from UVI Workstation. After that, I’ll show you all the options for quantizing. We’ll take a closer look at the MIDI edit window and how to use loop libraries in Pro Tools. Finally, we’ll discuss refining the sounds of the beat with audio plug-ins.
During this episode I will be using the song ‘Words to Say’ from the South African band The Arrows. You may remember the song when it was featured in the From Creation to Final Mix series. Let’s get started.
