On July 17, Pura will cover recording, editing and placing drum samples in a mix. He will help identify weak spots in a performance and demonstrate how a sample can reinforce tones, add depth to a recording and fill in the gaps. He'll also demonstrate how to record samples from a drum kit, edit them and then place them in a mix using Beat Detective and Slate Trigger. Students will master the art of integrating drum samples that sound authentic and natural, not copy and pasted.
