T16 - Drum and Percussion Programming

Justin Paterson, University of West London - London, UK

Drum programming has been evolving at the heart of many studio productions for some 30 years. Over this period, technological opportunities for enhanced creativity have multiplied in numerous directions, from sequenced MIDI one-shots to sample loops, and from DAW cut and stretch techniques to deterministic beat-slicer plug-ins, etc. The palette of sounds available today ranges from ever more realistic to ever more synthetic/exotic. This tutorial will embrace all of these techniques and more and include numerous live demonstrations. Although introducing all key concepts from scratch, its range and hybridization should provide inspiration even for experienced practitioners, leading up to the state-of-the-art. A number of genres will be covered from the pseudo-realism of jazz and funk, to the exploitation of synthetic textures in "intelligent dance music."
