Reaper Tutorial: Midi Drum Sequencing Part 2

Sequencing Drums Part 2 for Cockos Reaper DAW shows you how to start adding more of a human touch by adding groove, velocity and timing changes.

Utilizing Toontrack’s EZ Drummer 2, I guide you through the process of creating more complex drum beats and utilise a range of techniques to add a human feel. I cover the use of velocity, ghost notes and the Humanize functions.

Although this series uses Reaper and EZ Drummer 2, the principals should translate to any DAW without too much of a problem.
