    Very, very cool. Thanks for the heads-up, BarT.
    I would LOVE to see Roland take this a step further. Expand on it to have higher level grooves...but maybe the midi will allow you to do this?. How cool would it be to be able to make your OWN grooves in this, and be able to share them with others that have the program?

    And while we're at it...a native Mac version would be very helpful.

    Roland?

      Greetings from Anaheim!

      We debuted the Drum Tutor at CES in Las Vegas last week (where the video w/ Mike Snyder was shot) to tremendous response. We also will be showing the DT-HD1 at NAMM this week. The DT-HD1 works out of the box with the HD-1, however it will work with other modules as well...it's simply a matter of remapping MIDI note numbers.

        Hi Drew

        It always surprised me that the Rhythm Coach was only on the TD-3, there are plenty of beginners like me who bought TD-6s and would have benefited from having it.

        Even now I'm playing a TD-20 it would be great to have a rhythm coach built in.... perhaps you could have a word and get it included in future higher end modules?

        This software looks like an excellent solution though, again it would be good if it worked straight out of the box with all Roland modules with midi mapping presets already setup.

        I don't know if the software is modular, I'd be interested in buying it if there were intermediate and advanced groove libraries that could be added in the future.

        I'm working through the Tommy Igoe's Groove Essentials book/DVD series at the moment, it would be brilliant if there was an interactive software version which had the notation / charts, the DVD clips and the playalong tracks all in one place. (I see you've got an HD-1 and TD-9 into the DVD, maybe you could do a licensing deal to get the Groove Essentials material into your software?)

          Interesting as I am currently looking at a DT-HD1 for my daughter.

          Will it have a section to teach the basic snare rudiments?

          Any plans to be able to add advanced stages of tution?

          What sort of cost and when do you anticipate a release date?

            I think playing along with the included music (like Rock Band) is cool, but where I see this really shine is the notation screen. Being able to look at the notes on a staff and play along...all the while the screen is letting you know how you are doing is awesome. Just playing along with the metronome in this section would be enough...but being able to write your own grooves with the notes would be spectacular.

              Wow great idea. It will teach beginners how to play drum in a fun and easy way. I agree that more advanced grooves would be interesting even for more advanced drummers. We can always learn more.

                Except for the MIDI remapping, is there any drawback from using this with something else than HD-1?

                    I don't think that's been announced anywhere yet. So unless Drew can drop us a hint we can only wait and see...

                      Not sure if this is a reliable source: http://www.gizmag.com/roland-dt-hd1-...utorial/10725/ but it says $99.

                            Just the on-screen kit graphics being based on the HD-1 setup, I think.

                            I believe MIDI remapping would only be needed on a TD-3 (for Tom 3).

                            Other modules use the same note numbers as the HD-1.

                            Only three toms and one crash, of course.

                              I totaly agree with Fat Rich.
                              How could it be that I purchased the priciest VDrums ever (Yet) and it has "Less features" than TD-3?
                              And why should the Drum tutor NOT support TD-20 users?
