12 BEATS: PART 2
DEADMAU5 TEACHES ELECTRONIC MUSIC PRODUCTION

No one shat on Mozart for not having a drop. — deadmau5

SUBCHAPTERS
▶▶ The Secret to Snare

CHAPTER RECAP
Subtle adjustments can make all the difference between
lifeless and full sounding drum tracks. Joel always slips the
timing of his snare hits very slightly to offset them from his kick
drums. This lets the snares ring through with more clarity and
punch. You can also add breath to your drums by reverbing
the snare and side-chain compressing it, using your kick as the
key. Side-chaining is a form of compression that reduces the
volume of sounds to make more auditory space for other “key”
sounds. In the case, the compressor is reducing the sound of
the ringing reverb to let the kick drums punch through with
more force.

Sounds
▶▶ Making Your Drums
Breathe
▶▶ Case Study:
Snowcone Drums

NOTES

The drums in "Snowcone" are made up of about 10 elements,
this includes kick, snare, a creatively reinterpreted sample and
a bunch of percussion and noise to add texture. Much like
composing a melodic structure, Joel built the drum track for
the song by making one very dense and complicated eight bar
loop that he liked, then copying it across the track’s timeline
and muting or unmuting elements to create dynamics and
drama.
TAKE IT FURTHER
▶▶ You can find loads of drum loops available online. Including

free libraries like SampleSwap. Start collecting loops and
listening through, noting which ones you want to keep in your
bins and ones you never need to hear again. You can also
start playing with your loops by snipping out one-shots you
like or chopping things up into entirely new loops.
