  • Habib Lesevic, UK, via YouTube: “I personally own a few different programs/courses (e.g. Jeremy Ellis’ Maschine course on AskAudio or Mad Zach’s course on DjTechTools), but Andreas’ XpressPads Finger Drumming Course is on another level. His finger drumming technique is quite brilliant and a lot more ergonomic than the usual one-pad-per-sound approach.” –> complete feedback
  • Baran Kaypakoglu, Indonesia, via YouTube: “I am at intermediate level and still progressing. But thanks to this course I can already read rhythm in music sheets. Even my score writing in Guitar Pro has improved. This guy does not only teach you finger drumming as some other toyish software products do. He teaches you music and rhythm theory. It is worth it even if it was the double price.” –> complete feedback

  • Lance Miller, USA, via Email: “I am really impressed with your method.  I’m making very rapid progress and playing much more complicated beats than I expected with such little practice.

  • Ceyhan Peştimalcıoğlu, Turkey, via Email: “I played “The Breakbeat Bible” from beginning to end with the XpressPads technique.” –> complete feedback
  • Sam E. Loy, USA, via Email: “Thank you for figuring this out and making a system out of it. Coming off 20+ years of step programming robo-sounding drum patterns, and in less than 24 hours later from simply going thru the intro and step 1, playing a groovy’r groove on my Mikro – to a metronome – than I’ve ever been able to play. Very, very, cool.”
