1: Instant Feedback on Timing.
2: Note for Note Accuracy.
3: Adjustable Beats Per Minute.
4: Proper Music Notation helps the musician learn to read notation for drums and notation in general.
5: Large Selection of Lessons and Music Styles.
6: Four Count drumstick Count In selectable on or off.
7: Metronome Selectable on or off.
8: Drums Only or Music Only soundtrack selectable (but not both off)
9; Helps tighten groove and timing but not improvisation
1: Outdated Low Resolution Practice Window appears tiny on modern high resolution displays and is hard to read from distance while practicing.
2: Unscalable Resolution, the only way to increase the size of the tiny window is to lower the native resolution of the display to it's lowest setting making everything look pixelated and dated.
3: Outdated Black Music Notation on Glaring White Background makes for uncomfortable visuals of music notation, exasperated as environmental light decreases. Would be better served with a more modern higher resolution dark background with soft white or yellow music bars and notes.
4: Cheesy Sterile Outdated Computer Generated practice soundtracks from original (nearly decade old) program.
5: Inability to deselect BOTH drum track and cheesy outdated computer generated music on practice track. (Would be better served by updating to more organic live musician performance practice tracks or at least making the whole track silent except for metronome)
6: No long term tracking of ability or musical improvement.
7: Feels more like a "chore", not much fun factor.
This is the best, unfortunately it is also the only true computer based drum tutor, which makes it the best. Most other programs and rhythm coaches just give you practice songs & some sort of general score on various dynamics, timing and such. Roland's Drum tutor actually gives you real time note for note accuracy while you play. That instant feedback has helped me a great deal to really lock into the timing of the rhythm.
However there are some glaring issues with it. I had the original Roland DT-1 Drum Tutor years ago on an old and slow Windows based laptop I donated. The only reason I repurchased this supposedly updated and upgraded new one was they had finally added Mac compatibility were beforehand it was only Windows compatible. As I now use Apple computers exclusively it made sense to upgrade. Other then the Mac compatibility, it is very much the same program from over 7 years ago. Nothing has changed other than you have access to a greater library of practice songs when you start where beforehand you had smaller selection to start with and would have to download extensions and additional files. Not all of the extra lessons and songs have made it to the CD, particularly the more advanced artist lessons, probably due to data size limitations of the CD. I have yet to try to see how to download the additional lessons. On the older version they were viewable and downloadable right from the program window that linked up to Roland.
Like the original, the native resolution of the computer screen still has to be scaled down if you want to be able to see it clearly from a distance while you practice on the v-drums. If you have a high resolution screen, the program window is so small as to be rendered unreadable from a distance while practicing. This was a problem with the original and a glaring omission in the update for which I had to dock one star. I mean come on, in all those intervening years they couldn't have updated it to have a higher scalable resolution? Even more obvious that they just phoned it in is when you look at Roland's own free Friend Jam computer program and iOS app. Both of those have beautiful updated high resolution screens that are themselves scalable to the native screen resolution.
Another glaring omission is the lack of ability to control the program with the drum heads and cymbals like you can with the free Friend Jam. You can only control Drum Tutor using a mouse or trackpad. This might seem like nitpicking, but most drummers like to count in with a four count quarter note on the drumsticks before the song to set the tempo. This is why the drum head control function is so helpful on the Friend Jam, your hands never leave the drumsticks and you can get a proper count in and lock into the tempo right from the start. With the DT you have to put down one drumstick, use the mouse or trackpad to select and start the lesson or practice track. After a while you realize this and you adjust by putting down the drumstick to move the cursor, select the track, move the cursor to the start button and hope it doesn't move while you grab your drumstick and tap the mouse or trackpad while holding the drumstick. Your lucky to get a proper 4 count count in, it seems too often you miss the first beat and only get a three note count in that just throws off your timing for the first few bars. Another star docked.
All in all even with all its glaring short comings it does help with learning drums and rhythm in general. With the real time feedback and the proper music notation to read along to it is a very useful, though seriously outdated tool. I definitely feel it is superior to rhythm coaches and anything else available that only gives a score at the end of the track. Even Roland's own Friend Jam while it registers the trigger hits along the bottom as you play, it doesn't give that immediate feedback if you're exactly on beat. For that and that alone it is the best. You can see immediately if you're late or early on ALL your hits and adjust your timing accordingly.
I recommend this to anyone looking to play better drums or just get better at rhythm in general. Not just drummers can benefit from this, any instrument musician can benefit from better timing. Full disclosure: I am primarily a Bass guitar player and I practice on the V-Drums before the Bass to really get my rhythm tight in the pocket. I find my Bass and also my guitar playing is so much better, tighter in the pocket and locked into the groove if I practice on drums before hand. It doesn't matter how many notes you can play and shred, if your timing and rhythm are off it's not going to sound on point. It'll just end up sounding amateurish, just a lot of notes and noise.
Though you do need a Roland electronic drum set, (don't know if this latest version is compatible with other Midi drum units, the packaging is all in Japanese though once the CD is loaded it recognizes English and all install instructions on the computer are in English). Still you can pick up some used Roland V drum kits at reasonable prices on music resell sites like Reverb or auction sites like eBay. They are quieter then acoustic sets and that makes everyone around you happier.
Just like guitar and bass players have home, bedroom and headphone practice amps, for an acoustic drummer this along with an electronic set would make an ideal small area practice set up. Think of it as a five watt practice amp for home and your acoustic set as the 100 watt monster gig stack.
What would make this a five star product? Considering the cost, it needs some serious updates. First a higher scalable resolution, change the color scheme from glaring white to a more reasonable black. While music notation is normally written on white parchment, that paper doesn't have a glaring white LED light shining through it. A black background with soft white or yellow music notation would be much easier on the visuals. Make the Drum Tutor controllable from the drum pads. Long term skill and musical ability tracking on various skills so improvement can be seen as well as which skills need more improvement and practice to speed up development by addressing the areas the musician needs the most attention. Lastly get rid of the sterile cheesy outdated computer generated music files of the original nearly decade old program and update them with organic live musician recordings. Roland has many musicians across many instrument platforms on its payroll. How hard would it be to give them the sheet music to these tracks and bring them in for some studio sessions?
All these upgrades could be easily addressed in house by Roland. These upgrades are already on the Roland Friend Jam program and iOS app so porting then to Drum Tutor wouldn't be that unreasonable given Roland's assets.
Also drum practice like all instrument practice at home can be a lonely experience. Making it more sociable and connected would help alleviate that make it feel more fun, music should be fun and feel like a chore. It's not as critical, but it is a nice feature on Friend Jam that it connects to other users and Twitter if you so choose. When you boot up Friend Jam you see a world map of all the other Roland Drum and Friend Jam users each with their own pinpoint of light on the map. It just makes you feel good to see your not all alone in practicing day after day. Also Freind Jam scores you against your peers so a healthy bit of friendly competitiveness helps keep you on track with daily and monthly stats on score and practice time.
I've included pictures of both so you can see for yourself. I usually divide my drum practice time evenly between the two. First Drum Tutor to get my groove locked in and my timing tight, then Friend Jam to have fun and just jam. Unless of course if I'm pressed for time, then I only use Drum Tutor as it will give the most benefit as it gives note for note accuracy on your timing.
The one drawback (and this is nothing against the software) is that many of the MIDI files I downloaded from the internet weren't accurate, so unless you're playing to easy songs, there's a risk that if you learned the song as it is on the album, the MIDI might not be 'perfect'. That's okay, though, because it's just for practice anyway.
I haven't done this yet, but I decided that I'm actually going to just write some MIDI tracks for speed and endurance practice and play along to see if and when I start to get tired and sloppy.
I think this is definitely worth the 50 bucks if you're an electronic drummer.
And the software itself is awesome! Yeah I wish the window were scalable to full screen, but the way the software gives timing feedback for each note is great! You are buying an effective learning tool not a visually slick program. I can already feel my brain learning how to subdivide into four separate parts, and I am not a coordinated person. This program works!
A functional gripe: I cannot resize the application window at all; it is a fixed size. My iMac has a beautiful high resolution display, and this application appears as a tiny window. The only way I can enlarge the application enough to see it while playing the drums is to downgrade the resolution of my monitor. Annoying.
This is a product from several years ago that has not received any attention since then. Keep that in mind when you choose whether or not to buy.
