    Summary of Tips to Get the Most Out of Drummer (7:34)


Logic Pro X master Eli Krantzberg brings you the definitive video tutorial guide to Logic Pro X Drummer! Learn what all the features of this power packed virtual drum instrument do, as well as how to effectively use them to create amazing acoustic and electronic drum parts for your songs and productions.

Eli begins with a welcome, followed by videos on the basics of how Drummer tracks, Drummer regions, and Drummer kits work in Logic Pro X. You'll then learn the various ways to create Drummer tracks, both with and without Arrangement Markers, and how to generate additional Drummer regions once the track is created.

Next you'll explore ways of switching genres and drummers without changing their associated drum kits, as well as ways of switching drum kits while maintaining the same drummers and their grooves and more. Eli then gives you 3 in-depth videos entirely dedicated to the feature rich Drummer Editor and how it works with both acoustic and electronic drums.

Throughout the rest of the video series, you'll discover ways to use Brush Drummers and Percussionists, convert Drummer parts into editable MIDI note data, trigger third party instruments with the Drum Editor, how to edit and alter the palette of sounds available in both the stereo and producer kit versions of Drum Kit Designer, working with Drum Machine Designer to design powerful electronic drum sounds, tons of tips and tricks and much more!

Great Video!

Eli is a great instructor generally, but this is his best video IMO because of it's timing. He just gets to the point fast and passes the skillset to you in the shortest amount of time possible. Further, as a Logic power-user (or songwriter generally this video is required viewing.... LPX drummer is just a game-changer!

good

I really enjoy Eli's pace. however, I think there should be another Logic Pro x drummer video as it's one of the most powerful tools in logic. I also think Drummer & Third Party Instruments could have been much deeper. one example is that many 3rd party instruments name articulations and how they behave differently. it would be a pain to do a video about the numerous 3rd party instruments, but I'm sure there will be demand. groove3 could even sell the presets with "approximated" articulations for non-subscribers (I bet that it would sell). another ideia would be 3rd party programs such as ezkeys etc that could work nice with drummer from Logic Pro x (it is even on the video but there is no comment about that). that said, thank u Eli.

I clearly hadn't explored the possibilities of this instument before this series. Clear, concise explanations of Drummer's capabilities that had eluded me. Didn't know what I had. Thx, Eli!

Right On Point!

Eli does a great job of getting right to the point of how Drummer works and the many ways to change grooves and sounds...really liked the idea of using grooves with third party instruments I suppose you could also use grooves on synths etc...if you would like a quick and thorough walk through of Drummer Eli makes it happen...I always enjoy his vids...learned Logic X from him!!

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started playing drums in high school at age fourteen. Like most kids my age around then, I was into progressive rock. Genesis, Emerson Lake and Palmer, and Yes. They rocked my world. A few short years later though, my musical life changed. While studying music in college I discovered Charlie Parker, Milt Jackson, Sonny Stitt, and John Coltrane. Milt Jackson spoke to me in such a profound way that it left me no choice but to take up vibraphone.

These great players, along with  drummers like Philly Joe Jones, Max Roach, Art Blakey, and Elvin Jones changed not only the way I thought about drumming, but also music - and by extension, life - as a whole. I realized life was meant to be a creative endeavor. The idea of improvising based on a loose set of guidelines and rules permeated into my psyche even when I wasn't holding a pair of drumsticks or mallets. But if I am going to be perfectly truthful, I have to hold Henry Miller and Woody Allen equally responsible for shaping the way I view and experience the world around me. 

2. What training have you had?

I am currently an Apple certified Logic Pro. Young and cocky, and armed with only a partial University degree, I dropped out of school and  began playing steady commercial hotel engagements and jazz gigs when I could. This went on for many years until I decided it was time to complete my degree - which I ultimately did with a major in Political Science and a minor in music. 

It was at this point that I formed my current band Nightshift. We are going in to our twenty third year now - playing commercial one nighters like weddings, corporate events, etc. Don't turn your nose up at it though - it has allowed me a wonderful quality of life. It gave me the freedom to go back to school and complete a post graduate degree in Communications Studies - all the while supporting myself by playing weddings.

3. When did you get into recording?

It was in this graduate program - in the early nineties - that I found myself drawn to the fledgling emerging universe of hard disc recording and midi sequencing. Based on nothing more than the recommendation of one of my band mates who had an old Atari, I jumped in head first and bought a Mac LC ll, along with a version 1.1 of what was then Notator Logic. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. But, in hindsight, it was a decision of epic importance in my life - shaping my future as much as the music of Milt Jackson and Charlie Parker did fifteen years prior. 

I opened up my own commercial home studio in 1998 and began doing a variety of projects, working on radio jingles, artist CD projects, and whatever came my way. A couple of years later a colleague called me up - desperate. He was working at a post production house and one of the editors had just quit. They were doing audio post for a weekly TV series and needed a Pro Tools editor - and fast! And so, once again, I jumped in head first into what would ultimately open up my world even more - the world of Pro Tools. 

4. People you have worked with/for?

Focusing on Logic, I built up a small but loyal client base and my phone kept ringing for Logic tech support and instruction. Film composers and studio owners all over the city were calling me. Even the music stores were giving out my phone number at this point! This kind of stuff becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. The more of it you do, the more calls you get to keep doing it. At least that's the way it should be!

As my Logic chops kept growing, I was hired by an old buddy of mine, Len Sasso, who was then an associate editor at Electronic Musician magazine, and began writing some columns for them. I had a blast doing them - and really learned to focus and express my thoughts in a concise and clear manner. This lead to a collaboration with LA based composer Terry Michael Huud on the 2006 film called Civic Duty - which was certainly one of the highlights of my professional life as a composer. 

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I wake up every day excited to boot up, and create. Whether it's instructional videos, creating music, working with a studio client, performing with my band, or teaching at the schools - my days are filled with what I love doing. Enriched by the stimulation and creative freedom this modern music making software brings to my life. I bring that excitement and passion to each and every training product I create. My years of experience both using and teaching these programs has taught me the best way to make the user comfortable with these complex programs.
