Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Helpful workflow to use EZDrummer and EZKeys Helpful even without Superior Drummer but you need the Fusion Add-on pack to recreate the song. I've done it in Ableton Live, worked nicely.

Rated 2.5 out of 5 by from Way too fast!!! slow down, that's a tutorial not a race! ok you need to SLOW down! i watch lot of your videos but you are going way too fast, there is not rush, this is a site to learn, learning means explaining excaclty where you click. this is so frustrating, spending 15 minutes to figure out where you click to get where you are. obviously you know what you are doing but you need to learn how to teach in a way that help the viewers. hope you'll adjust your speed for futures videos.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Excellent Overview of Toontrack Products I just grabbed the Fusion libraries today and then stumbled in here to find this tutorial. It affirmed how I was working with EZDrummer and EZKeys and showed me a few things I had overlooked and introduced me to EZMix which was a product I had been ignoring. Overall, it was well paced and informative for me. YMMV.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Great Training For Toontrack Integration This was a great explanation of how to use the various offerings from the Toontrack product line. The tutorial was very detailed and Luke was excellent, easy to understand and I really like his pace that he delivered in the lesson. Luke is a great drummer and really understands music theory, that's is a very tall order to fill in the Fusion Genre, the grooves and fills are perfect for making great fusion music.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Great Class on Fusion Grooves and Midi I don't get how Superior Drummer trumps EZ Drummer seems to me EZ Drummer has a song Creator and other features that Superior Drummer does not have, yes you can tweak the Superior Drummer drums by adjusting this adjusting that but why doesn't Superior Drummer have all that EZ Drummer has that way you don't have to have both VST Instruments only the one Superior Drummer. Puzzled
