Highly detailed and comprehensive coverage of layering techniques for Kicks, Snares, Hi Hats and Percussive elements. Walk through examples of all techniques used, from using waveform tones to layer drum sounds, using ADSR enevlopes to shape layers, to using effects and dynamics to reshape existing sounds into new sonic textures.
Thorough explanations for compression, equalisation, stem and tree techniques, layering drum sounds using audio editors, layering drum sounds using sequencers, layering drum loops, extending tails of sounds using noise and so on.
Every technique is accompanied with project material incorporating audio (before and after) and image screenshots.
