Flawless Teaching and Improvement Tool
I never leave reviews for products. If I do, its because I am so pleased that I feel indebted and obligated. First off, Sweetwater, free warrantys plus when the product arrived i got the arrival email from a rep before I even knew the product was waiting outside my door. Great service every time. On to Roland. I have only owned a few Roland products but each one has been so valuable. I have had the DT=1 tutor for almost a week and I have already improved my timing and playing skill. The pros are too many but here are a few, easy short cut keys for super easy navigation while practicing, super easy program to learn, along with a/b markers and the minus drum and drum only feature and repeat function....there really is no limit to how you can choose to learn. You can even choose to isolate which drums you want to play until you are ready to add more to any particular song or exercise you are working on. Im a drum programmer, my drum playing has been limited to very little finger drumming, a day or two of actual drumming and beating on tables and walls my whole life. So i have an advantage of always keeping a beat. however this program works so well that I don't doubt that people way worse than me at drumming and the millions who are better than me will benefit from this program. its worth hundreds of dollars being that it almost completely replaces a drum teacher and allows one to work at their own pace. however i would suggest one use a tutor and a teacher if you are really new but if not its not the end of the world. the cons are few. the gui won't allow me to expand it across my whole computer screen and the songs are really cheesy. i love the cheesy songs but for those that tire of them you can look on line for popular songs that have midi files .
