How to Program a Half-time Shuffle Beat

In today’s drum programming tutorial we covered how to program a half-time shuffle beat using Superior Drummer 3’s Grid Editor.

Specifically, we looked at:

  • laying down a solid backbeat
  • adding dotted eighth notes on the hats
  • adding more groove using ghost notes on the snare,
  • and then some techniques to get the shuffle beat sounding more realistic overall.

Until next time..
