Point Blank‘s latest tutorial video teaches creative drum mixing techniques.

Point Blank invited expert lecturer Danny Linton (a.k.a. Funk Ethics) to explore how you can transform your drum grooves into exciting and professional-sounding patterns, whilst showing how to turn a simple drum loop into a full song idea using just a few simple steps.

In the video, Linton details a range of techniques, including the art of parallel processing using drum buss tools, supercharging your loops with a combination of EQ, compression, and creative modulation, and gluing everything together and adding variety with subtle tweaks and automation.
