Drum Beat Construction

A book entirely dedicated to revealing the secrets to creating head-nodding grooves!
$16.99 USD


In modern music, the beat is king - get the beat right, and you can turn any tune into a head-nodding masterpiece. But while most DAW software gives you the tools you need to craft the perfect beat, you still need to learn how to use these tools, otherwise you'll end up with a robotic groove that impresses no one!

Drum Beat Construction takes you on a practical hands-on exploration of the beat-making process which will leave you with a deep understanding of how the world's leading beat creators get that elusive and all-important 'nod factor' into their tunes.

Starting with the basic foundations there's plenty to get the newbies up to speed - but it quickly goes much deeper than that, with Eddie Bazil expertly explaining all the techniques you need to conjure up your own standout, groove-ridden beats including: 

  • Essential beat slicing techniques
  • Using modulators to provide texture & movement
  • Innovative new techniques to create 3D motion and stereo width
  • Advanced 'ghosting' techniques to enhance groove and vibe
  • How to 'rip’ the feel from commercial tracks (that's right, you can extract the ‘groove’ from your favourite track without infringing copyright!)
  • Detailed workshops on building tracks from the ground up. 

As with all Eddie’s books, there's a heavy emphasis on step-by-step practical examples, with plenty of screen captures from various software packages (techniques shown can be easily ported to any modern DAW and audio editor) and over 250MB of full quality audio so you can listen and study every technique as well as recreate every example discussed in the book. And when you hear these beats, you can be sure that Bazil is a man who knows exactly what he's talking about!

So… if you want to make cutting-edge beats, why waste time trawling through forums for tips and tricks from bedroom producers? This book has all the answers and has to represent the best $15 you could ever spend on audio production tuition!

"Wow - I've just got this book from Eddie and am MOST impressed. It's obviously been a huge amount of work and a true labour of love - there are HUNDREDS of audio examples along with the 190 pages of the book itself, and many of them use short snippets from well-known commercial tracks to illustrate all the insider techniques of beat construction and how you can add your own twists.

I'm loving this book and have already learnt a lot from it in the first few hours, but there's several weeks worth of content more for me to explore yet. Highly recommended! And what a bargain at just $15!! "
