If you’ve ever played in a band, I’m gonna guess you’re very familiar with the struggle of finding a drummer.
Not just any drummer though, but a GREAT drummer!
Because if you think about it, your drummer is the real leader of the band.
They’re the glue that holds everything together. We rely on the drummer for tempo and rhythmic direction. And the drummer propel the story of the song through their performance.
But as I see it, there seems to be more bands than great drummers in the world. Which means we can’t all have a great drummer!
Which is why Apple blew my mind when they introduced Drummer into Logic Pro X.
At first Drummer seemed kinda gimmicky. But once I realized that Drummer could adapt to whatever you threw at it…
Oh man, it was all over 🙂
Having an A.I. drummer evolve and adapt to my songs is pretty much the best thing I could think of as a songwriter. Plus, toss in:
- Intuitive and easy interface
- Wide range of performers, kits, and styles
And I can’t think of anything Drummer isn’t good for!
Of course, out of the gate Drummer might not always match your dreams for the backbeat.
It’s easy to overlook how nuanced Drummer actually is. But if you take even just a *little* time to dig into Drummer, you can quickly see that it doesn’t take much to generate stellar drum tracks.
In this week’s video, I want to show you how deep Drummer can actually go:
- How to tell Drummer to Follow the other tracks in your session
- How to dig in and fine-tune the individual hits of a Drummer performance
- How to expand and mix each individual mic of the Drummer kit
