Some people think of drum programming as a technique that’s only for cheap artists that can’t afford to record a drum set at a studio or for bedroom producers.
Rest assured: They are wrong!
Knowing how to program drums well can help you A LOT in many diferent ways.
Songwriting would be the most apparent one. When you are laying down some decent riffs or playing around with that monster Bass line at your home studio, it’s only half the fun, if you can’t do it to a rocking groove.
If you’ve ever tried to explain the groove you had in mind for a certain part of that new song you wrote to a drummer, you know it’s almost impossible to do so.
Drum programming to the rescue: Just get them to listen to it.
These are just two examples but you get the point: If you are a serious musician, songwriter, and/or producer knowing how to program drums is a must!
