In this 50 part tutorial, Nurve demonstrates how he would go about processing the legendary ‘Amen’ break for a Drum & Bass track with a number of processes which can also be transferred to process other breaks and other sounds in your track.
In part 1, Nurve introduces his course, provides an agenda and also informs learners that there will be a challenge set at the end of this course.
Part 2 sees the first practical demonstration take place and he kicks things of with EQ. He then moves onto the compression and how that has a very profound impact on how the way this amen break ends up sounding for a Drum & Bass track.
In part 3 we take a look at some saturation, courtesy of Camel Phat. He then touches on the importance of applying some transient shaping after process to reintroduce some transients that may have been lost due to prior processing.
In the final part of the practical demonstration, Nurve covers the mono/stereo information which is a great way to bring the amen break to life. He also quickly touches on the drum layering that he has applied to the kick drum.
And last but not least. Nurve summarises this course along with setting learners a challenge which encourages them to apply the techniques and processes that he has demonstrated during this tutorial and for them to tag them on his social medias with a short video clip of the results.
