Learn how to record, write, collaborate, and produce Hip Hop! Styles include Boom Bap, East Coast, West Coast, Southern, and Trap. Explore and craft the skills to make your drums knock and your 808s rumble. Create and shape your own sound using different sampling techniques, and modern synthesis. Learn the skills needed unique to Hip Hop to record, mix and master records for commercial release. Students must know their way around their DAW and at least one working sample-based virtual instrument and one synth-based plugin. One of our DAW courses in Ableton, Logic or Pro Tools will get you up to scratch for this course. 3rd party weapons of choice are made by Native Instruments and Spectrasonics, but alternative ‘freeware’ can be downloaded legally.
We’ve made it possible for our students to use their own laptops for this course, so you can get it set up to suit your needs. You can also hire one of our iMacs for €75. Headphones, audio interfaces and controller keyboards come as standard.
