Short studio masterclass 3: how to do drums in D&B.

In this episode, I’m touching a topic I've been asked about for years:
How I do my drums in the type of D&B I like to make.

* Break (drumloop) selection
* What to look for in a break
* Chopping up the drums
* Arranging the drum hits
* What makes a beat "broken"
* Looping the drumhits for length
* The importance of ghost hits
* Using Ableton Multiband Dynamics
* Using Izotope Neutron

I’m a mixing & mastering engineer from Finland.
I also make a lot of music, and always have.

Plugin checkout #1: Wavesfactory Trackspacer.

A dynamic sidechain plugin that cuts out from the desired signal the frequencies of the source signal. A helpful mixing tool. Showing how Trackspacer can be used to make room in a mix.

Was working on this mix and needed to something about vox/guitar clash and Trackspacer helped me a bit.
