The full 60 minute tutorial goes deep into every detail of the sound pack creation through six distinct lessons:
1) Crafting the Beat: techniques for creating more dynamic drums for live performance -- from scratch!
2) Setting The Mood: creating pads and atmospheres, including starting from a vinyl sample and turning it into emotionally driven sounds that will act as the hook and set the vibe of the track.
3) Melody of One: one note melodies re-envisioned, which can be easily played using one button while still remaining expressive and diverse
4) Risers 101: Creating Builds To Fit The Pack: creating interesting risers out of samples you already have on hand for buildups, breakdowns, transitions, and more.
5) Bass Face: Addressing The Modern Sub: How to use MIDI clips, modifiers, and clever patching to create a dope bassline that can be played live
6) GTFO: The Sounds, The Magic -- adding flair to a performance soundpack, including making cool sounds using the simple delay, and recording some vocal samples that take the pack up a notch.

There are a lot of different schools of thought and approaches to finger drumming, and I don't think there has to be a definitive "right way" to do it. It's a bit like martial arts, in that it has many different teachers, styles, and ideologies. I studied under Master Quan in the Hubei Province.

For more Tutorials, Tips, Mappings, Interviews & Reviews:
We recently overhauled the Midi Fighter Firmware with an awesome new "Ableton Mode" which makes the MF's play super friend with Ableton. One of the most exciting new features of the firmware is the ability to assign any parameter in Ableton to be "momentary" with minimal to no extra effort. This is a highly sought after function that Ableton for some reason or another has not yet integrated into their mapping interface (Ableton 9 team GO!) Today our resident Ableton Master Kwan (of the Hubei province), Mad Zach, invites into his studio to show off three awesome ways to use the new function. We're especially jazzed on how he's integrating the momentary assignments into his weekly soundpacks.

Simple but awesome, the Midi Fighter Pro SE elaborates on our classic Midi Fighter design by implementing two "smooth as butter" macro knobs and icy slick faders. The limited edition Pro SE comes with a special, exclusive run white or black case with custom modified arcade buttons that reflect the positioning of specific types of sounds in Mad Zach's Weekly Soundpacks, making it the ultimate controller for getting the full experience out of our weekly packs. With the release of the SE, we also are providing a new "Ableton Mode" which introduces the ability to do instant momentary FX, and strips down the Traktor oriented midi information of the original Pro's and makes way for perfect integration between Ableton and the MF Pro. Each Midi Fighter Pro SE is signed and numbered.
