The Golden Gate to EZD

Rated 5.0 out of 5
February 6, 2024

Long story short, I first used EZD in 2013 for about 2 years. Then I stopped recording music and came back to it in 2021 and more seriously in 2023.

I have to admit that I probably used 10 or 20 % of the power of this tool until I discovered Shootie School!!! I first watched videos on YouTube and then decided to go for the full course.

The quality of this course and of all the videos in general is very high. Shawn is very clear with his explanations, talking slowly and clearly with a very pleasant voice.

In terms of content, every little corner of each screen is detailed and explained. Nothing is left unclear.

I am only in the middle of the course but if I consider also the videos watched on YouTube since November 2023, I can measure the huge step ahead I have made in using not only EZD but also EZKeys, the bandmate, the song creator, the instruments, the presets…, everything these tools have to offer.

I have started to use functionalities that I even didn’t know they were there under my mouse!!

So, a big, big thank you Shawn for your time, your patience, your availability and the opportunity you are offering to us by sharing your skills and your knowledge of these wonderful Toontrack tools.

Before I took this course: I poked around EZD3 feeling unsure of what I was doing and getting the distinct sense that I wasn’t getting everything EZD3 has to offer. Moreover, it was taking me a long time to actually create a usable drum track. My drum tracks were appropriate for what I was doing but kinda boring.

After I took this course: The results were immediate! Now I felt I knew what I was doing and why. I am now able to quickly put together much more interesting and detailed drum performances that blend much better and compliment my performance on guitar. And that’s just using the Drum Tabs alone with Toontrack Midi Packs.

( A note to the reader: Buy as many Toontrack Midi Packs as you can afford. Wait for them to go on sale and buy bundles. It’s worth it! Your search for usable drum patterns will go much faster, your choices will be much broader and you are much more likely to find patterns that fit with exactly what your music requires.)

Take this course, follow Shootie’s instructions, stock up with a few Midi Packs that relate to your style and you’ll have a lot more FUN using EZD3 in a very efficient manner!

If you have a brain or don’t, let Shawn elegantly guide you through the ins and outs of the drums tab. He’s got deep knowledge of all the quirks and how it works, and generously shares all the handy tips he can summon from within. There’s going to be something or several useful things to learn here for EZD users at any level – guaranteed. At the very least you’ll confirm things you kinda weren’t 100% sure about. Shawn always goes the extra mile and takes you with him. No need to hesitate. enjoy learning.

Yes. Watch my trailer above. You can also check out my Sample video here. Otherwise, if you’re still not sure I am the right teacher for you, watch some of my free content on my YouTube channel to get a vibe of my teaching style.

Is this for beginners?
Yes. Beginners may want to treat this like a college course. Watch one video at a time and apply the curriculum before continuing on to the next video. This course is for all skill levels and is considered a complete curriculum of the subject.

Is this for intermediate or advanced users?
Yes. Though I cover the very basics in this series, I explore every feature with advanced demonstrations and workflows. For an advanced user this will fill in the gaps, be a good recap course, and a reminder of overlooked features that they should consider incorporating in their current workflow.

What is the quality and resolution?

These video files are 2560×1440 pixels (2k) which is larger than high definition video. I regularly zoom into the screen to better view details and text. I am also visually present on the screen with you as I teach.

Contact me for support if you’re having trouble accessing or viewing the files.
