Video: How to layer kick and snare samples with live multitrack drums

In this video I show you how to quickly layer and "double" multitrack drums in Logic with electronic samples.  This same production technique can be used in almost any DAW (Pro Tools, Ableton, Cubase etc) with plugins like Drumagog or Steven Slate Drum Replacer.

The drum session used in the video comes from Complete Takes Vol 1, but this same technique can be applied to any of our multitrack drum series.

Excellent product. I use it with Pro Tooks 11 and Addictive drums 2
Am I locked into a tempo with wav loops? Is there a way to alter the bpm to conform to my preferred tempo?

could just use another track with other samples etc, if you do not have the right plug in.
