Percussion - Drum DVD
EpiK DrumS EDU is the best tool for anyone interested in learning how to record and mix real drum kits. With today's technology, sampled drums are used more and more, but every engineer and producer needs to know how to record and mix a real drum kit. This package contains everything you need to learn from the masters. You get grooves played by five of the most iconic drummers of all time: Terry Bozzio (Frank Zappa, Missing Persons), Billy Cobham (Mahavishnu Orchestra), Rod Morgenstein (Winger, Dixie Dregs), Bob Siebenberg (Super Tramp), and Woody Woodmansey (David Bowie). Every groove is included as a full multitrack session for both ProTools and Logic in addition to .wav files for each track. A video is included with words of wisdom from legendary producer and engineer Ken Scott, who has worked with The Beatles, David Bowie, Elton John, and many other top artists. Ken explains how he recorded and mixed these grooves, and there is also behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the drummers that provide intimate insight into the sessions. And last but not least, for those who wish to delve further, additional sessions will be available online for easy download.
