I was in the studio recently recording samples of my Pearl Forum Series acoustic drum kit. Now I’m making those great sounding drum samples available for you to download. In this video we’ll take a listen to this awesome sounding kit and I’ll show you some basic editing tips when working with samples. We’ll create a basic beat and I’ll add some processing to fatten up these loops.
I hope you put these samples to good use. Please share with me the grooves you create with these. I’d love you hear your creativity.
