Freemasons’ James Wiltshire Creates and Mixes a Drum Track using Vintage Drum Machines, Samplers and Ableton Live

Over Christmas Point Blank released this awesome mini-series of videos featuring James Wiltshire of The Freemasons. James has worked with huge artists, such as Beyonce & Kylie Minogue, as well as being one half of the group The Freemasons and running his own company F9 Audio.

In this series of three videos James takes us through creating a drum track, as well as mixing and arranging it. There are countless tips & tricks shared, with techniques displayed that can be employed in any genre of music. James also makes use of technology old and new, showing how older gear can really bring something to a track and also how to capture that same feeling if you don’t have an EMU SP-1200 or Roland TR-808 lying around.
