Digital Practice Toolkit
Learning music can be complicated, and we drummers are used to juggling multiple tools to deal with that. Sheet music, MP3 players, YouTube videos, slowdown/looping apps, notation editing software. Why isn’t there a single tool that combines everything a drummer needs? Introducing the Beats Drum Studio Digital Practice Toolkit (DPT).
How it works
The DPT is based on the Soundslice player, a hybrid audio player/notation viewer that syncs audio, video and music notation into a single, elegant interface. No more juggling, no more wasting time. The result: an effective, efficient and fun learning experience that lets you;
View music notation synced with multiple audio/video recordings
Click on notation to go to that moment in the recording
Slow down or speed up recordings
Loop sections by dragging across the notes
enable a metronome
Zoom and re-wrap notation to fit smaller screens
Do all of this from the comfort of your web browser, without installing anything
And much more
Try it out for yourself!
Below is a fully functioning demo track that you can try out all the features above with (the track is "Billie Jean" - Michael Jackson taken from our Trinity Rock & Pop Grade 1 Drums course available to purchase through link at bottom of this page).
Here is a link to a quick tutorial on how to use our DPT.
The student experience
Everything you need is online and easily accessible through our website. There’s nothing to download or install. It works in any modern web browser on any device. You simply create a free Soundslice account, then you will be given access to your practice material. Once you have access, you can view and practice your music, using the rich variety of learning approaches supported by the DPT. Students can even privately upload audio or video of themselves performing to receive feedback via our comments system.
