Drum Replacement Workshop by David Glenn (The Mix Academy)

Drum Replacement Workshop

Most modern music demands it. But even when the song isn't calling for overly hyped drum sounds, learning the art of blending and even replacing drums is a critical skill. In my latest course, I'll teach you everything you need to know about blending and replacing drums. ;)

The Ultimate Resource for Blending and Replacing Drums

No matter what genre I'm mixing I almost always resort to enhancing the drums with blending or even sometimes completely replacing the sounds. While these techniques tend to get a bad rap from purists, there's more to the art of using samples than just delivering a hyped or pristine drum sound free of bleed. Inside this course you'll not only learn the tips and tricks to make the most of using samples, but you'll also learn the critically important fundamentals that will ensure your drum mixing success on your next mix.

To Replace or Not to Replace

Not every mix needs samples. There... I said it! ;)

But. The flexibility and techniques I'll show you in the course will open your eyes to new and exciting creative abilities that will help you make your drums stand out against the norm. We'll break down all the good, the bad, and the ugly of using drum samples to give a balanced perspective so that you can decide how and when YOU use samples in your mixes.

Phase // There's More Than You Might Think

Before we get to the fun stuff we need to understand the foundations of phase. You may have heard to just "flip the phase" as a remedy for weak sounding drums. While this may be a quick trick, it isn't the best we can do. I'll show you multiple examples of how phase shifts occur and give you the tools necessary to make the best decisions regarding phase for harder hitting drums.
