Artesia Pro Uses Gorillaz New Single “New Gold” (feat. Tame Impala and Bootie Brown of The Pharcyde) To Showcase and Compare EFNOTE 3/3X’s Internal Sounds and Superior Drummer 3 (The Widely-Considered GOAT of drum softwares), and the EFNOTE 3X MADE IT BETTER!
The VIDEO begins by showcasing both the EFNOTE 3X internal sounds, and Superior Drummer 3 simultaneously, with a combined 24 channels of audio sending from the kit. (The original drum audio was extracted using Moises) then SD3 is pulled away to reveal the all-new “New Gold” preset kit, created by Michael Bedard, (NERD ALERT!!) which utilize the tom rim zones with 808-esque “eKick 2” tuned bass drops and an “EL Clap”, then layers in a PL Birch S14x5.5 w/ YM Loose S14x5.5 snares, as well as layering in a secondary “EL eKick 10” sample on top of the YM Power K22x16. This allows Michael to play a hybrid part, which if you listen closely, sounds like multiple rhythm tracks but is not.
The EFNOTE 3X itself is augmented by a 14” snare (EFD-S1455-BO), as well as an added 17” FX cymbal (EFD-C17FX). The module knows which pad is augmented and assigns it’s samples accordingly. This is both an A/B, A+B comparison, showing the strength of this seemingly simple module. It’s incredible how far e-Drumming has come.
