How to Drum, virtually!

This is not a sales pitch. Simply put, here are some links that will open your creative mind.

It does not matter if you use
Toontrack products or not, I highly recommend that you take 30 minutes out of you hectic day and check out these new videos from Toontrack. But why? Glad you asked.

Toontrack has made life a lot more simple for all of us that hate the learning curves that come with new products. What if we could sit and watch the very folks that were involved in the designing, recording, and everything else that goes into a midi drum sample product like Toontrack Superior Drummer 2.0 work with it? What if they came into your home and walked you through the product, and how to use it to its full potential? Well, make room in your home for some new guests.

Here is a link to at least 14 great videos that take you from beginning to end of Toontrack Superior Drummer 2.0.

For example, lots of you good folks have come to my blog looking for a way to add a reverb to only the snare track, from
Superior Drummer 2.0, in Pro Tools and on a separate track from the rest of the kit. The video that covers this is right here. Look for an up and coming “TUT” here on Home Recording Weekly on just how this trick is done.

Watching these videos will open your mind to what is possible, how drum software can work for you, and hoe they work in general. Even if you consider yourself a pro, Pat Thrall, Neil Dorfsman, Nir Z, and Toontracks own Mattias Eklund talk you through everything concerning drum sampling software.

These vid's are so informative that I watched most of them more than twice! Thanks Toontrack for walking us through Superior Drummer 2.0, and speaking as musicians just so that we could all understand it.
