This new beat production course from Producertech and Capsun aims to move beyond simply using sample packs for your drums, with 16 chapters looking at crafting trap and hip-hop beats using Maschine. Initial chapters focus on layering up sounds to create more live sounding hits, and also at using Maschine's synth engine to build tighter electronic sounds. Capsun then brings everything together by building a kit and programming a full beat. You'll need a basic understanding of the Maschine workflow, as things move fairly quickly, but the views of both the Maschine software and hardware make it easy to follow. You also get the Maschine Projects and kits, and 100MB of free sample hits and loops. The only thing we felt missing was some tips on creating some nice, rolling trap hi-hats.
