|Course overview||The course deals with the programming of your own live drum grooves as an independent alternative to the already existing MIDI and Live Pattern VSTi instruments. The aim of the course is to achieve a real ‘live’ feeling ranging from »easy« AC\DC 4\4 to a complex half time shuffle.
The development of individual grooves, their integration into recordings, as well as the creation and programming of a complete song structure (including drum mixes) are all important components of the course.
