About The Class
Great beats, no drummer required
Whether you use EZDrummer as a writing tool for demos or as a replacement for a human drummer, Toontrack’s plug in is your ticket to self-sufficiency. In his CreativeLive workshop, Eyal Levi of Audiohammer Studios will show you how to get the most out of the industry-leading digital solution for creating real-sounding drums.
Eyal, a seasoned producer, engineer, and musician, will teach you everything you need to know to get the most out of EZDrummer. From writing and arranging realistic drum parts to how to mix the output in your DAW, Eyal will show you how to be the sole arbiter of your sound — no drummer required.
This workshop is taught with ProTools — but includes a QuickStart guide so Logic, Cubase, and Ableton users can follow along.

I could tell as soon as I watched the promo that I seriously wanted to check this course out, and when I did I wasn't disappointed. Eyal's EZdrummer tutorial is totally worth the purchase price. He is extremely knowledgeable and informative. He explains things very well, and offers many means of contact (Twitter, Tumblr, etc) by which one could ask any follow-up questions they may have that weren't covered in the initial session. I couldn't view the original session since I was working my regular gig when it was happening live, so the anytime access has been quite useful - I've been checking it out all weekend. I've already learned more for this than I did many times more hours of watching random YouTube tutorials on the subject. I would and have recommended this course already!
This course literally changed the way I work with digital drums. Before this course I had a hard time programming drums in my DAW and now it's become totally natural. My workflow has been greatly improved and so has my work. If you are new to the game, this will give you a MAYOR head start. Thank you.
Eyal's instruction opened up a new world for my songwriting. Can't recommend this enough for working musicians that prefer to capture their song ideas in a high-fidelity way.
