For a while now, there has been a very growing interest in pad drumming rather it be for beat enthusiasts or from electronic artists looking to bring their sample based music live. Although there have been great software that aided in bring that style of music to a greater audience, there was not a way to practice and hone these skills. Well, Melodics seems to have come up with a solution.

Created by former Serato CEO Sam Gribbin, Melodics is bringing a new software that will help you do just that. It teaches by providing a fun gaming experience. I would argue that most people learn most when they are having doing something, and this is the idea of Melodics. A fun interactive software that will help you crank out your inner pad drummer through lessons that most people will not mind repeating over and over.

The great thing about it as well is the software already works with most midi controllers; from Novation, AKAI, Native Instruments and the Push from Ableton to name a few. Melodics is working with some amazing artists that people are familiar with like Jeremy Ellis and Jazzy Jeff. I would not be surprised if a few other names Like Mad Zach, AraabMusik and M4sonic were also brought in, but that is to be seen. Check out the full Press Release for more info.

The Traktor Kontrol F1 has been making huge waves in the DJ performance world.

Native Instruments has heard everyone's remarks and has responded with a series of Traktor Kontrol F1 tutorial videos to help make the remix decks more accessible.
