    First time recording with e-drums!

    So today I recorded a drum cover of Calyx & Tebee - Elevate this Sound. I just used the demo of Addictive Drums, and I quantized the sound as well. I'm pretty happy with the way it's come out. What do you guys think?

    Addictive Drums (triggered through a cheap e-kit)

    I thought I'd share this quick little demo of what a really cheap e-kit (OSP DD-502) can sound like it you run the MIDI out to good software on your computer! I just downloaded the demo of Addictive Drums, and this is what it sounds like...

    Anyone have experience with Alesis USB Pro kits?

    This is the drum kit I'm looking at right now: Essentially, I'm looking for something to use as a MIDI input into Logic, and that's what this is designed for. Does anyone have any opinions on it, or better/cheaper alternatives? It looks like I can get one of...

    Here we go; I'm going to attempt to start my career!

    I haven't been around here for awhile, and there have been a few changes in my life. As of yesterday, I've decided that I'm moving out and going to start teaching drumming for a living. I'm going to a new area, and essentially starting from square one. I plan on living very frugally, for less...

    Scheduling/payment management for drum students

    To all of those that maintain a busy teaching schedule, how do you do so? As of right now, I'm doing it via the archaic pen and paper calendar. Is there any free or cheap software that you could recommend to keep track of everything from payments and timetables to contact information?

    I may be an apartment dweller before too long.

    And I haven't hardly glanced at e-drums in many, many years. So, recommend me the best e-drum kit out there for under $1000! I need to be able to record MIDI out, preferably via USB. EDIT This is what I've been thinking: Alesis USB Pro

    New favorite way to impress students' parents

    Talking to the parent while their car is idling, listen to the engine, play a single stroke roll along to it, name the tempo within 10 bpm. Nailed it.

    The New Breed... anyone done the WHOLE thing?

    As of right now, this is my new drumming goal, haha. I want to play EVERY combination in that book. It will serve as my groove and coordination practice for the next year or so. My question is, has anyone else here done this? I know a lot of people talk about the New Breed, but who has done the...

    New gear, identify this cymbal!

    I got some cool new gear today (well, new to me)! To start off, an old Sonor Force 3 piece (22x18, 16x16, 12x10) that was re-wrapped with orange sparkle. I don't have the badges, but the tom mount is the Force Custom, so I think its a Force 1000 with 9 ply German Poplar shells. It has the old...

    One handed drumming

    Well, I only have one hand until my collarbone heals. So, I am asking you, fellow forum members, give me a challenge! I want some difficult things to play, and I will learn them, and record them. Any ideas?

    Fun experience teaching yesterday...

    As you may know, I smashed my collarbone into a few pieces a couple days ago. As a result, I can't move my left arm. It actually hurts to breathe, because the ends of the bones grind together when my lungs expand. Anyways, Tuesdays are the days that I teach my drum students. I didn't even think...
