A Wealth of Knowledge on Recording & Mixing Drums

Learn how to recreate legendary breakbeats from James Brown and Stax Records

Sonically recreating a song or breakbeat is a huge challenge, as anyone who has tried to match a reference track to a new recording knows. There are SO many variables involved - the performance itself, how the instruments were played, tuned and treated, what the room sounded like and how it was recorded, mixed and mastered, and how the original sample itself was created. The process can be overwhelming.

Session Drummer Dylan Wissing (Alicia Keys, John Legend, Drake) and Mix Engineer Cooper Anderson (Wu-Tang Clan, Future, Fun.) have been recreating classic tracks and breakbeats at a top level since the 2000s. They are first-call professionals in the field, and have mastered the difficult craft of sample replays.

In this bundle, Dylan and Cooper share their hard-earned knowledge and experience with you, recreating the iconic "Funky Drummer" and "Tramp" breakbeats. Their clear, methodical approach will dramatically improve your own recording and productions.
