Make Your Drums Sound Tight
& Groove Like Never Before

The one thing which always blows my mind when I listen to a performance by a-list musicians is how insanely tightly they lock into the groove.

In my mind, there really is nothing that can replace the energy and feel created by an outstanding rhythm section.

With this course, drummer/producer Myk Robinson teaches you how to make the productions you’re working on sound like these pros.

Inside, you’ll learn how to create drum edits that are completely unnoticable, and how to tighten up the groove to lock in perfectly with the other instruments.

Discover how to create a comp out of multiple takes, cherrypick the best breaks and fills, and how to edit drums in a musical way.

The best part?

You don’t have to spend a fortune to do this!

In fact, just one gig as a drum editor will make up for the costs of this course plus all of the software required.

Inside, you’ll learn how to utilize Reaper for drum editing, which -at $60/license- is one of the most affordable and most powerful DAWs out there.

So what are you waiting for?

Pick up this course and make your performances groove like never before!

By using Reaper’s powerful comping capabilities, you’ll be able to sort out the occasional messy fill or roll, and combine the best parts of several takes into one stellar-sounding performance.

Worried about having to slice up and move around 8 or 12 drumtracks, one at a time?

With Reaper, that’s not a problem at all!

Myk teaches you how to comp your entire performance effortlessly and in one go. – Without running the risk of misplacing any of your regions!

By utilizing playlists and grouping.
