Hello, this is Brandon with another mix minute, and today we’re going to humanize a one shot drum sample.

One shots provide consistency, but lack human feel. We can change this using a transient designer and a midi controller.

We’ll use the pitch wheel, since it always returns to zero. Arm this to the attack of your transient designer, and write automation as you adjust the attack to change with the songs dynamics.

This technique demonstrated on EJ Rios’s “Echo” (Featuring Analise Rios). Get a copy of these multitracks free from the cambridge educational multitrack archive. http://cambridge-mt.com/ms/mtk/#EJRios
