Unlock free lessons with promo code: adsr-2017

As a musician and as a producer, practice is essential to develop performance skills and production techniques. Skills with the sampler and pads are just as important as time in the woodshed is for guitarists, singers or drummers. After all, the sampler and the keyboard are just as much an instrument as bass or guitar, especially in modern production styles.

Pros spend just as much time and practice as other musicians developing their skills with the sampler, and working on finger drumming, cue point triggers, sampling and other techniques that are the foundation of today’s electronic and hip hop music production.

Melodics is a training program for finger drumming and cue point drumming – designed to develop the wide range of skills and technique necessary in modern production across a variety of styles and genres. While Melodics isn’t free – you can either pay monthly, annually or buy a lifetime membership – they do offer the first 20 lessons at no cost, and at various times of the year they open up additional content for everyone as well.

In this tutorial, ADSR Instructor Stephen Ellestad walks you through the basics of the software to give you a sense of what it’s all about as a tool for developing your technical production and performance skills with pads and finger drumming. If you’re looking for a unique tool to develop or advance these skills and improve your productions, you’ll want to watch this video.

11. How to make latin inspired DJ Snake drums

In this video, Echo Sound Works uses samples from their pack HAVANA to make a DJ Snake Moombahton & Latin inspired drum groove.

Echo Sound Works, the team behind top selling products like Ashes, Chainsmoking, Snake Lazers, CODA and so much more, is proud to share with you one of the most unique sample pack/soundsets we’ve ever made.

HAVANA is a one of a kind collection of sounds, presets, samples and more, that will help improve your productions by simply having access to these highly unique sounds. Sounding unique and different is more than half the battle with production.

Pushing Serum and Massive into uncharted territory, HAVANA is in inspired by the colorful and vibrant music of Latin America and the Caribbean. It pairs perfectly with more mainstream genres like Future Bass, Trap, Hip Hop, and Future Pop.

We spent 5 months creating all the content for Havana. It is our largest soundset to date and comes with 150 Serum presets and 85 presets for Massive as well as 420 drum samples and loops, construction kits, MIDI, and Latin guitar loops totaling 3.5 GB of content.

HAVANA is the genre fusing soundset for both Xfer Records Serum and NI Massive, blending Latin music with Future Bass, Trap, Future Pop, Tropical House, and Hip Hop. Latin music has exploded in 2018. Thanks to global hits like Despacito and Havana by Camila Cabello, Latin music is finding it’s way into more and more music. That’s why we decided to make HAVANA.

We pushed each synth to it’s limits to bring you the most diverse set of presets. You will find marimbas, bells, keys, steel pans, brass sounds, guitars and other hybrid instrument sounds in Serum. There are also more conventional sounds perfect for any modern genre of electronic music and Hip Hop like huge 808’s, drop ready leads and of course chill pads.

If you haven’t used Massive in a while, dust it off and pull it up. These sounds are unlike anything you’ve heard in Massive.

HAVANA truly does blur lines between genres and can be used in Future Bass, Trap, Tropical House, House, Future House, Moombahton, Pop, Hip Hop and more. It’s not just for songs that inspired by Latin music.

We don’t usually shout out our drum samples in product descriptions, but HAVANA is a whole other beast. We sampled so many unique, Latin percussion instruments and mixed them to be song ready. You get hundreds of incredible percussion sounds like Timbales, Congas, Guiros, Maracas, to name a few. The percussion in this pack should and could be it’s own product, but it made perfect sense to pair these samples with the presets in HAVANA.
