The tour also necessitated a new and extraordinary over-the-top drum kit for equally legendary drummer, Neil Peart.
Within his monstrous kit, Neil plays Roland V-Drums and has done for almost 10 years now in various combinations of current modules and custom hybrid V-Pads designed exclusively for him. His preference of keeping the look of the kit a complete and exact match, finds the Roland V-Drums kick, snare and tom trigger technology housed into DW shells.
This module, along with the V-Drums pads, play unlike any other and can keep up with the best that the greatest players can give it. For everyone, like Neil, who enjoys having their own look or finish to their drums, can now do so with the new V-Pads and their inter-changeable shell wrap design. I first introduced Roland V-Drums into my setup in , during the writing and recording of our Vapor Trails album.
6 rocking drummers who are also showmen
On the subsequent tour, they became a fixture in my drum solos, as well as to trigger samples throughout our live show. Over the years, the V-Drums have continued to improve in touch sensitivity, and in sound quality and variety, and I still find them not only fun to play, but a great creative addition to my percussion world.
Drummers love to expand and customize their kits. Customizing a kit helps to reflect a drummers personality, as well as assisting them with fitting into any musical situation. Already well known for their huge possibilities for great sounds and When I bought this book, I started looking at the songs for the Moving Pictures album.
Rush drum legend Neil Peart on the pursuit of excellence
But when I listened to all the songs and followed the music, the transciber added stuff that wasn't in the music and is easy to read. This book has most of there famous songs that very accuratley transcribed. This is why sight reading is so useful. Instead of listening to the track and be frustrated that you cannot breakdown what Neil is doing on a particular beat or fill, you just open the book and VOILA! This stuff is not for beginners but if you want to actually It is mostly very accurate and if you can master this you'll be able to add that little something that might be missing.

Do you like the artist? Every nuance of the kit is captured with 8 velocities per drum using as many as 8 round robins per velocity. In addition to the full kit instrument, you get individual SampleTank instruments for his kick drums, snare drums, toms, hi-hats, ride cymbal and crash cymbals so that you can customize the sounds, adding effects and perform individual instrument processing on each element using multiple parts in SampleTank.
Add some extra compression to the kick drum, a little more reverb to the snare drum, some high-end sizzle to the hi-hats, each without affecting the other elements of the kit. All of the drums are mapped using an extended General MIDI mapping so you can mix-and-match kit elements from the Neil Peart Kit with elements from other SampleTank 3 factory drum kits or other additional SampleTank 3 instruments collections available in the Custom Shop like the new Billy Cobham Kit. Neil Peart Drums also includes audio grooves played by Neil in the style of many of his favorite Rush songs.
Neil Peart Drums is perfect for rock, metal, jazz fusion, pop and nearly every kind of music where you need a clear, expressive punchy drum track that is well-articulated at every velocity.
