As a follow-up to Steve H's hit Logic course: Ultrabeat Unleashed, we've "unleashed" Logic expert Rishabh Rajan to focus on the basics of Ultrabeat drum sound design! Watch this course and take your Ultrabeat chops to yet a higher level!
Ultrabeat is Logic's ultimate beat-making masterpiece. Behind every one of its presets, and lurking just beneath its complicated virtual faceplate, is a very powerful sound design and drum-making laboratory.
In this course, Logic Pro expert trainer Rishabh Rajan reveals some of Ultrabeat's hidden programming secrets to help you design, devolve, destroy and regenerate kicks, snares, hi hats, toms and other percussion sounds to add to your original drum sound library!
You'll learn how to deploy all the sampling and synthesis tools that are part of the Ultrabeat sound design toolbox. Rishabh explains Ultrabeat's physical modeling engine. He shows you how to create FM-based bell sounds. He takes you through the entire design process from realistic sounds to fully synthesized drums to give you a complete understanding of the power in Ultrabeat's sound design engine.
So start designing your own sounds and making your own Ultrabeat presets with this 20-tutorial drum sound design course by Rishabh Rajan!
Rishabh's sound design courses are all fantastic fun. They also leave you with a range of new presets at the end of the course, so you get a very practical take-away as well. I really liked this one on Ultrabeat. There's no fluff - just very efficient kit-piece sound creation that will make you much more aware of how to use the plug-in to move away from reliance on factory preset sounds if you so wish.

This is a really great course! I love the pacing of it. It is very quick-- you can always pause or go back, but you can't speed a lecture up, so I wish more instructors would take this approach! Up to now I had mostly been using Ultrabeat as a sampler instrument, but now I know how to very *quickly* and efficiently make just the kind of sounds I have in my head. Concise, but a deep variety of concepts. Just what I was looking for. I like Ultrabeat much better now than I did before.

Like his other series, greatly enjoyed watching him work and learning as he goes.

Great tutorial on drum synthesis by Rishabh Rajan in Logic Pro X. Rishabh shows off the capabilities of Logic's extremely powerful yet under-rated Ultrabeat Drum Synth.
I would recommend watching Steve H's Ultrabeat Unleashed tutorial first if you are new to Ultrabeat.

Rishabh Rajan is a tweak master, I found it amazing how he took me from sine wave to drum sound, respect to MPV & Rajan.

I bought this because I wanted to have a complete understanding of 'making' my own drums. I was never happy with my own previous attempts.
Rishab takes all the clinical coldness away from my encounters with the manual on this aspect of Ultrabeat.I knew Ultrabeat...and loved it..but shied away from synthesising my own kits.
I have worked through over half the tutorials already.And I am flying now.
There are no ' flabby' parts here...all great tuition in a concise yet genial style.
You will ' click' with this when you realise that Rishabh is teaching a very holistic manipulation of Ultrabeat ....the components all being teased here and there to form the whole.He's teaching how to be intuitive ! You can hover over you're own creations and not be too hung up about numbers etc.
That is what is great about this. Excellent and many thanks. A bargain.
Wanna make your own drums that are not real...yet they are SO real too ?
