Coming Just as Soon as The PreSonus Symphony Orchestra Series…..


I am excited to let you all know that my next “Made Easy” product for my good friend Dave Vignola over at¬†– MIDI Drums Made Easy Vol.2 is just about ready to DROP!
This volume picks up where volume 1 left off and helps you take those nice new drum tracks you have been creating, armed with the knowledge gained in Vol.1, up another level. I show you how to program “ghost” notes, and some¬†really effective drum rudiments, to give your programmed grooves and fills a new veneer of class and polish. I will be announcing shortly via a video here and on our YouTube Channel the exact date of release in the coming few days or so. Until then….. Be excited!

Learning To


I am very pleased and excited to announce the launch of my good friends Dave Vignola and Pete Woj’s awesome joint venture mixing education website.
