Tutorial: Adding Drum Samples in Pro Tools to an Acoustic Drum Performance
IntroductionThis tutorial will show you how to add prerecorded drum samples to your acoustic drum performance in Pro Tools LE and HD. This is useful in the event that lets say you record a drum kit, but aren't all that happy with the snare or kick sound and want to add something to it to beef or spice it up. The whole process is fairly simple and after a little practice I'm sure it will become a mainstay in your process as it comes in handy quite often! Needless to say, this process is in the place of a plug-in like Sound Replacer which does the same thing...
ConclusionOnce all of the samples are added to the track and you have checked work you have completed the process! You now have the ability to mix your drum sound using both the orignal sound and a sample. Some engineers will do this process many times for the same drum with many different samples, while other like myself will only use one or two and blend them in with the orignal rather than replaceing the original all together. This is a cheap and easy way to add samples, even though it can be a bit tedious after a while!
