Soilwork’s Dirk Verbeuren Did an Electronic Playthrough Video with EZ Drummer

Well here’s a new spin on the drum playthrough video. No mics. No drums. Well, no acoustic drums. I’m actually surprised this is the first such video I’ve seen since a lot of players have electronic kits at home to keep their chops of. I guess it’s just a matter of aesthetics.

Toontrack sponsored this specific electronic playthrough because Soilwork have been longtime users of the company’s software. In this clip, drummer Dirk Verbeuren has the kit connected to his computer, triggering Toontrack’s new EZ Drummer 2 software. The song in question is Soilwork’s “Leech.” What do you think of the tones?
