Henning has been programming drums for 30 years now. He has produced a ton of albums, most of which used realistically programmed drums. He graduated from Berklee College of Music with honors (summa cum laude) and studied Arranging and Sound Design.
He’s worked for 6 years in Los Angeles as a producer and jingle writer before moving back to Germany to continue as a producer before turning to his current adventures on YouTube.
His own releases cover a wide range of styles, but he is best known for his progressive rock and metal work on albums from Frameshift (with James LaBrie and Sebastian Bach), Chain, Roswell Six (Steve Walsh from Kansas, Sass Jordan, Michael Sadler), Psychic for Radio, Shadow’s Mignon and Henning Pauly.
Henning is a certified Cubase trainer and has given numerous drum programming workshops in the past. This extensive course was high on his bucket list and he poured 30 years of experience into these lessons.
The course covers loads of different drum VSTs, but even if yours is not among them, the principles shown will apply to all other VSTs as well and it should be easy to transfer the knowledge.
Once we get to building grooves, we start from the very beginning, so technically you need zero knowledge. However, this course can not show you every groove and every drum trick there is. It will start you on your journey and it is up to you to listen to drummers, talk to them, watch drum lessons and performances, to gain more understanding of what those people do with those crazy little sticks.
Once you have bought the course, you can stream it all right from our website on our custom platform that lets you keep track of your progress. But if you rather download the videos for viewing later, you can do that too.
Since most drum VSTs sound great right out of the box and already have great-sounding presets, you don’t really need any mixing knowledge. There is a whole lesson about how to mix drums, but if that goes over your head, don’t worry, you can easily work with a preset from your preferred drum software and get great results.
When you buy the course, you are invited to join a private Facebook and Discord group where you can join hundreds of other course owners and all our instructors to ask any questions you might have and find help. You can even show any progress you are making and ask for feedback!
