Logic Pro Video Tutorial: Drum Programming Using EXS24 Sampler w/ Matt Shadetek

Electronic music producer, DJ, Dubspot Instructor and Logic Pro course designer Matt Shadetek explains and demonstrates some drum programming techniques using the TR-909 kit in Logic’s EXS24 Sampler.

In this tutorial, we’ll look at how to create drum rolls like those found in southern hip hop.  This style of drum programming is inspired by producers like Lex Luger, Southside and Sunny Digital. We’ll do this by working with Logic’s division value in the piano roll to allow us to pencil in 1/32, 1/48 and 1/64 notes and create faster rolls than we could normally create otherwise. This tutorial is focused on hip hop as an example but is applicable in any style where intricate drum programming is required. In the upcoming tutorials, we’ll learn how to create the preverb and pitched down vocal effects which you’ll also hear in this tutorial.

For further exploration of the EXS24 Sampler and Logic Pro be sure to check out Dubspot’s six level Logic Pro Producer Certificate program designed by Matt Shadetek.  In the six levels of the course, both in our online school and physical classroom in New York City students will learn to create a four track EP, starting with a set of musical sketches and developing them over the course of six levels, refining their craft as they advance.
