Welcome to part 2 of ‘How To Process The Amen Break’. Nurve builds on from part 1 where he processed the amen break in fine form with various processes which all contributed to the final product. In part 2 he introduces a variety of other sounds such as percussive hits, drums and further drum processing techniques to help this amen break go from one stage to another. Below are some short descriptions on what each part of this course consists of.
Part 1: Nurve introduces this course and proceeds to explain the agenda and what we covered during this course.
Part 2: This first practical part starts things off with a ride cymbal and how it is processed and sculpted by tweaking the amplitude envelope.
Part 3: This part is focused around the closed hat and the syncopation that it possesses. We also take a look at subtractive EQ which is a VERY widely used technique by every producer on earth.
Part 4: This part focuses on the money shot in form of a metal ride. Whilst breaking this percussive element down we look at pitch, additive EQ amd our very good friend, compression.
Part 5: We look at the wonderfully underestimated and under represented, ghost notes. Ghost notes are an integral part of music production but most notably with drums. We also look at layering the snare with the a drum for the software drum machine, Addictive Drums 2.
Part 6: Last but not least, we recap on everything we covered during this course and we are also set a challenge by the man himself.
