Free Drum Loop Sample Library

Free Drum Library Sessions

In our recent article about Sampling In Pro Tools, we mentioned that one way to acquire sample and loops is to get together with some friends and record them playing their instrument. We realize this is the most abstract of all the possible ways to create your own samples, so we have done this work for you, and saved the many hours and days of time and costs.

As a newsletter subscriber of ProMedia Training, the nation's #1 largest Authorized Official Avid Pro Tools Training and Certification organization, these multi-track drum sessions are now available for FREE for your use to download, edit, and utilize for your production pleasure after being recorded in a renowned Nashville Studio. These are multi-track Live Recorded Acoustic Drums!

Is Pro Tools Training Tax Deductible?

We get folks that ask us if ProMedia's Pro Tools training classes are tax deductible? The answer for many people is “YES!” The IRS Publication 970 states that employees and self-employed persons can deduct training costs if the workshops, seminars or courses allow individuals to improve and develop their job-related skills, especially if the employees require the training to remain in their roles. Similarly, the IRS allows self-employed workers to deduct training costs, including transportation to and from course locations, so long as the training relates specifically to their current business. Consult your CPA for details and specific allowances.

For those who want the facts, we have included a link to the IRS Publication 970 or consult your CPA.
