Course 6: Finishing Drum and Bass Performances

In lesson seven of the Recording Connection Audio Engineering and Music Production Masters Program, you will be focusing on Elastic Audio and Drum Replacer to tighten up the song track from the previous lesson, putting the lessons previously learned to practical use. You will work on these areas with your mentor and complete this assignment at home on your own Pro Tools system.

Section One: Using Elastic Audio

In this section, you will be using elastic audio to make new edits to the track’s overall performance, pushing, pulling or extending audio selections to match up and sync with the other track recordings or metronome. Elastic Audio can help you with the creative aspect of a song with its time stretching capabilities.

Section Two: Sound Replacement For Drums

You will take your previous tracked drum performance and make it excellent with new drum sounds that enhance the original performance. Here you will learn how replace a dull, quiet, out of tune, or badly performed drum sound with a sound in your computer’s drum library.

Your mentor will then upload your session files onto his/her system for your overdub session.
