Mastering Modern Worship Drumming

After having interviewed many worship drummers in the last 2 years, and after many conversations with the worship drummer family, we began to notice a common topic emerge. The topic of technology in music, and in our case worship music. 

Technology in Worship

In our interviews with drummers like Josh Freddy (Vertical Church Band), Brendan Tan (Hillsong Y&F), Garret Goodwin (Carrie Underwood), they touch on the fact that technology in worship will be the "thing" for the next long while. Add to that the dozens and dozens of questions we receive from the worship drummer family. Here are some of them:

Is the SPD-SX good for controlling tracks in Ableton? Also am I able to put my own sounds on it?

Is there video tutorial available to trigger backing tracks on Ableton via the SPD?

I'd like to know how to do MIDI controlling on a live situation

I have a lot to learn. I don't even know where to start my questions.

As you can see, there is a lot of excitement around using technology in worship drumming, but unfortunately, there is also a lot that is largely unknown. 

Mastering Modern Worship Drumming was created to help answer your questions and show you the deeper tips and tricks, all in a simple and concise way. 

We spent months planning the content and we took a weekend to film it all. Just for you. 

What Will I Learn?

In this course, we will teach you how to use Ableton Live and the Roland SPD-SX for:

  • Video 1 - MIDI Control
    • In this section we discuss and demonstrate the steps in order for you to use the SPD-SX as a MIDI controller with Ableton Live. 

  • Video 2 - External Triggering
    •  In this section we discuss and demonstrate how to use drum triggers and external control pedals with the Roland SPD-SX.
  • Video 3 - Sample Creation
    • In this section we discuss and demonstrate where to find samples and loops, editing them in Ableton Live, exporting samples in a format that is compatible with the SPD-SX, and importing and arranging your material into kits using WAV Manager.
  • Video 4 - Practical Application
    • In this section we show you practical demos for you that will incorporate a lot of the elements together, and show you how you can use it live in a worship situation. 

Our goal in filming the course was to provide the best content in one place to teach you the most important things you need to know to Master Modern Worship Drumming.
