Wow, there's a lot more to this instrument than i thought! The course really digs into every function and utility, can't wait to go bang-out. And I'm sure i can apply these same lessons to the Abbey Road Drummer as well.
Very simple and to the point. I loved the mixer section, it really showed me how to make my drums pop!
Very happy with this course. Studio Drummer had been sitting on my hard drive for a while, and I really wanted to start using it. This tutorial is great! It got me up and running in no time. I particularly liked the parts on channel settings and output configuration. I use Ableton Live (the course covers Logic) but that was no problem. Thanks a lot.
Good overview of NI Studio Drummer. The BEST explanation and step-by-step instructions to send each drum out to separate tracks (and stems) in Logic Pro.
Useful for anyone who has any of NI's drummer expansions like the 'Abbey Road' series, not just Studio Drummer. A great tutorial that'll get the most from your NI Drums.
Really well layed out and a great course, thanks.
As expected a full run through of everything in Studio Drummer with examples of how to integrate with Logic...I'm loving this.
great tuts. learned some new stuff, especially about cymbal and hihat articulation. thanks!
Tidy little course that could also prove useful for users of the other NI "Drummer" products.
Great course learned a little about assigning outputs for an easier way to bounce out a kit to audio for more control over processing. Great way to get to know SD
This is an excellent follow up to "the manual", explaining much more in detail on this NI product. In fact, I had somewhat given up on Studio Drummer and was looking at other alternatives to get my drum tracks sounding how I envision for my productions. I am like most, as I don't like or have time to tinker to much during the creative process. With this video series I got a better understanding of setting up Studio Drummer to get the sound I want. In the process I have created several kits for various situations, requiring little to none in tweaking. Being that I am still learning to mix, I started with my focus on drums. With this video I am now able to hear a groove in a song and capture the same nuances and timbres of the drums used and apply to my own tracks. Thank you for a wonderful tutorial!!!
I spent days looking for output assignment solution in Logic Pro. I purchased the tutorial just because of that and now... what a relief! Now I can use NI studio drummer properly, mixing with my favorite plugins and creating proper audio stems for a mixing engineer.
Kontakt owners know that the program itself is not easy to understand. The manual doesn't explain the simplest of procedures and when one has a specific question you can never find the corresponding answer just by fliping to it. When the studio drummer came out, I bought it and found the drum kits to be absolute top of the line. Still, after working with it as a plug in I still wasn't understanding how to incorperate it into my Logic sequencer in order to get optimal use out of it. This video explained all those things and more that I was desperately searching for in the NI manual. All of a sudden I understood the bus routings, the Kontakt Mixer output settings and how to get it all into my host, and tons of other things that had me confused. It not only showed me how to get the most out of the drums but explained Kontakt 5 to me in a way that the NI manual didn't. I can now truly say that I understand all aspects of this plug in. I also had a problem or two getting my N.E.D. program to work properly. I had two different user names and I wasn't seeing older tutorials in my download page. One mail to support and they fixed the problem immediately. I also inadvertently made a mistake with my online order. The studio drummer vid. was charged to my account 3X's by mistake. (my fault, not theirs). I contacted support again and got instant reimbursment for my bogus order. This company rocks and the support is top notch. They really give you an understanding of the music software that the mother companies don't seem to provide. I use their programs for my NI stuff, Spectrasonics and Logic. I have learned things that have blown me away because I used to do them the long way around out of ignorance and now I have gained an understanding through the tutorials that makes my work flow so much easier. Thanks guys!! I am one satisfied customer. Looking forward to future releases. Jim Roche Producer, Arranger, Musician
I really got a lot of useful info out of this tutorial, and now have an even greater appreciation for studio drummer. There were several Ah'ha moments as Toby showed me a better way of doing things.
The tutorial was excellent; Toby pointed out how to mangle one MIDI-file into different degrees of sloppiness and tightness- a possibility I hadn't thought of. Very nice indeed. Fully worth the expense.
Very good as an initial exploration. Structure of tutorial clear and progressive. Presentation first class. Will you be doing a follow up i.e. next steps and how to best use things such the grooves and to fully integrate them with pro tools for example? Richard Bueckardt
Superb tutorial that runs through NI Studio Drummer in great detail and leaves you wanting to just jump on the program and make some music. Really pleased that I will now make more use of Studio Drummer in the future following these tutorials.
