I really enjoyed this tutorial.I took notes on it once before but this time I am applying this to a real situation right away! I am serious about using EZD 2 to create drum beats for my song to send to someone with Superior Drummer. Without this tutorial I do not think I would have had the guts to attempt to put a drum beat together for my some of my songs.
Excellent tips for customizing and making drum loops your own. Clear lessons on how to get up and running (and go deep) with this program.
excellent content, however this should be part 1 of 2. Judged on completeness, there were some features and ways of using features not covered. also, it would have been nice to see more real world examples of building drum parts along with songs and a little more about working within a daw project and things like that. A follow up tutorial called "ezdrummer 2 advanced" or "using ezdrummer 2" or "beyond the basics", etc., would be a welcome addition.
I really like this guy! I think I like this upgrade a little more tho!! Good gig MacPro!!
What a great course. It is very well explained. This is all I need to know to get started with EZ drummer 2.
Very informative, and easy to follow. Matt V. is a great teacher.
Great tutorial! Very useful tips in every video, and fab presentation! Gotta love this MacPro stuff and the EZ Drummer
I really liked this tutorial. It filled in a lot of the "blanks" that I had about how to go about creating my own grooves while utilizing some of the grooves that were included.
Very comprehensive. Would have appreciated more coverage of the hosted mode and its features.
Great course explaining the new functions of EZ Drummer2. The only thing I miss is the explanation of tempo following the DAW and the percentage of lowering of the tempo that still delivers great drums. As always MacProvideo is my favorite Tutorial supplier.
I just upgraded from EZDrummer to EZDrummer 2. Wow, what a change for the better. But it freaked me out with all the new stuff to learn. I am a visual person and videos are my ticket to learning. As soon as I got EZD 2 I checked to see if there was a tutorial video and the first place I went was MacPro Video and there it was. Matt Vanacoro is a wonderful instructor and takes you through all aspects of EZD2. If you want to save yourself some time please check out this video. Absolutely 5 stars.
