Melodics: Introducing Courses – A New Way To Learn

by in Uncategorized

After months of requests we are proud to announce that our brand new feature Courses is here.

Courses are curated paths through Melodics lessons – covering genres, techniques, musical concepts, and more! We think that this new addition will give users a new way to structure their learning and build skills faster.

Free Courses

Introduction to Melodics 

Get started with Melodics & finger drumming. This course will lead you through a selection of our free content, covering a range of genres & techniques. Start growing your skills, get a feel for what you like… and what you need work on!

Hip Hop Basics

The realness, the foundation. Take a short trip through Hip Hop history covering breaks, boom bap and soulful beats.

Subscriber Only Courses

The Evolution of Hip Hop

From break sampling, golden-era boom bap, and neo-soul, through to future beats, trap, and more – play your way through Hip Hop’s history in this course.

Independent artist

Separating your hands & fingers to play complex arrangement is a huge turning point in getting better at finger drumming – this course walks you through lessons which allow you to build this necessary skill, skipping between genres, BPMs, and exercises.

Off the grid

Put some wonk in it. Part of finger drumming is building up a feeeeeeel for the track – do those hats need to sit back a bit? Would that bassline work better dragging? Play this course and challenge yourself to make it work when it’s not exactly on-grid.

Cue Point drumming for DJs

Flip tracks, create dramatic build ups, and take your DJ set next level. Cue Point drumming is taking off with mixers like the Pioneer S9 and NI Z2 becoming increasingly popular – build the skills you need to master this surprisingly difficult technique.

This is only the beginning with more courses scheduled to arrive in the upcoming weeks. If you have any ideas for a course let us know via the Feedback section in the Melodics app.

Practice Mode On Melodics // Melodics Fundamentals

by in Fundamentals

Our most requested feature is finally here. ‘Practice Mode’ has been officially added to our latest release and can accessed by all Melodics users.

In a nutshell ‘Practice Mode’ will be an essential tool to helping you learn harder Melodics lessons faster. This feature will enable you to slow down and speed up the tempo of the lessons before attempting them. What is even cooler is that ‘Practice Mode’ runs on a continuous loop so you can keep practicing over and over without having to press that pesky spacebar.

While ‘Practice Mode’ allows you to slow down the tempo you will still need to complete the lessons at their original BPM to gain points. For a more comprehensive look at the capabilities of ‘Practice Mode’ check out the video below.

Let us know what you think about ‘Practice Mode’ and how it has helped you so far on your Melodics journey. You can do so via the comments section or links below.
