  • Brazilian samba tune from Jim Riley (EZDrummer 2, TD12)

    Finally picked up a copy of Jim Riley's "Survival Guide for the Modern Drummer" book. The 124 (!!!) playalong tracks that come with it are MORE than worth the cost of admission. This is seriously a fantastic educational resource for drummers.

    This is track #107 - Brazilian Samba. I love this kind of music, but have never played it in any setting. So it's great to be able to record along to world-class musicians playing this style. Thanks Jim!!

    Kit specifics:

    EZDrummer 2 Modern - "Dry Rock" preset (modified). Crash cymbals from the Southern Soul EZX expansion

    Kick: 16x26" Gretsch USA Custom
    Snare: 6x14" Gretsch USA Custom Chrome over Brass dampened
    Toms: DW Collectors maple (8x10", 9x12", 16x16")
    Hi-Hat: 14" Sabian HHX Groove
    Crash (left): 19" Zildjian A Thin Crash (Southern Soul EZX)
    Crash (right): 20" Zildjian A Thin Crash (Southern Soul EZX)
    Ride: 20" Paiste 2002

    On the stereo drum bus, I'm using the "Drum bus" preset from EZMix 1.

    On the final stereo mix, I'm using the "Reverb - Medium Dark" preset from EZMix 1 and a bit of EQ from a Cubase plugin.

            Love your videos.

            I've tried a little to make videos like this but I can't get the Video and Audio to sync up perfectly. I start off by hitting the snare 3 times loud so I can sync up the audio from the camera and my mimic recording, but for some reasons I can't get the camera audio onto my MacBook. so I can't line up the spikes because the spikes not there from the camera.(if that makes sense. lol)
