F9 Audio : The Secrets of Swing Part 1 - The History


Learn the Secrets of Swing Rhythm Programming. 

Swing - That irresistible rhythm that breathes funk, life and groove into our musical and percussion elements. Vital in the production of Hip hop, House, R+B, Jazz, Funk and Pop.

As soon as we dived into the subject we realised what a huge topic it is so we have split it into three tutorials. In this first video we explore the history of Swing from the Jazz explosion of the roaring 20s' to the present day and explain why certainly terminology is used in the world of swing thanks to early drum machines that defined Swing in electronic music.
