Half-Time Shuffle Groove with First-Inverse Hats

Today we went further and programmed a half-time shuffle groove using first-inverse hats. This is a way of shifting the 2 triplet eighth notes being played on the hats and the 1 triplet eighth note ghost note being played on the snare to achieve a unique syncopated groove.

  • We played with the velocity programming to get a more realistic programmed drum sound
  • Moved the Snare ghost notes from the Center to the Mid-center, again for more realism
  • Messed around with adding some syncopated Kick and Snare hits to drive the groove forward and provide a sense of coming-back-around-again for the listener

Until next time..
