This is something we get asked all the time, something we see people fail at all the time and something we think we're both pretty good at:
Using drum samples in a way that sounds organic and not like we're actually using samples, while still adding all the punch, control, size, vibe and consistency that the raw tracks might be lacking.
In this episode you'll learn the process and specific techniques we use to do that, including:


Creating MIDI notes or key spikes to trigger samplesAdjusting velocities Phase / time-alignmentPicking the right sample(s)Tuning your samplesShaping the attack and sustain of the samplesFine-adjusting the velocities and articulations, based on the samples you choseCreating busses and getting the routing right (using multi output instruments or triggering close mics and kit/room mics separately)Committing and printing samplesWhy we like to treat original tracks and corresponding samples together as one new drum, if possibleAvoiding over-processing of samples - they often are already processed Adding glue, vibe and “kit energy” on the drum bus and/or parallel bussesUsing automation or multiple sample tracks to get rolls and ghost notes rightAnd even more ideas on how to use drum samples without sucking the life out of the performance.
