Drums Galore and Pro Tools 11

I'm kind of taking the lazy route today but once in a while there's good information to pass on and so I just leave it to the original source.

The first bit of goodness I have for you today is a drum website from a friend of a friend, Chris Brush. I got turned on to it when a friend linked up to a humorous video about what drum fills are acceptable, questionable, and downright awful for session drumming. The rest of the website includes brief video samples of different setups which are enlightening in their own right. Beyond that, you can download the multitracks to play with and that right there Brethren of the Knob and Fader is pure gold. In addition to all that it's a chance to see how a musician has uniquely packaged himself. I love the idea of a drum menu. Check it out!

Next up is a selection from Dave Pensado's vlog. He had Bobbi Lombardi form Avid on as a guest a while back and you really need to pay attention to this guy! He talks fast and covers a lot of ground but it's all worth a listen. They work through 32 bit vs 64 bit, swing by floating point, and then get into the development of Pro Tools 10 and beyond into the work that's going into PT 11. The guest segment starts at 12 minutes.
