Overview

Want a quick and effective way to get top quality; professional drum tracks in your music without the need to book expensive time in a recording studio that can accommodate a full drum set? Then EZdrummer 2 from Toontracks is the ideal solution for you. Already one of the top-selling, best-performing virtual drum studios, Toontrack has been completely overhauled to provide you with this current edition. EZdrummer 2 is a completely redesigned program, including a host of groundbreaking songwriting tools, new drum and percussion sounds, improved audio engine and much, much more.

FIND & GET YOUR GROOVE DOWN
EZdrummer 2 introduces several features when working with MIDI drum grooves. All new functionality is applicable on the new content as well as any previously installed Toontrack MIDI. Get the groove you are looking for - quick, easy and to the tee.

GROOVE LIBRARY: The EZdrummer 2 groove library is conveniently organized in a ballad, halftime, mid-tempo and up-tempo structure and covers swing and/or straight variations in a number of styles and time signatures.

TAP2FIND: Tap your desired rhythm directly in the interface or use a MIDI controller. EZdrummer 2 will auto-quantize your beat and list the all grooves in order of closest match.

FILTERS: Find your grooves manually but let EZdrummer 2 narrow your search down to a specific library, genre or play style - just to name a few options.

BROWSER: The traditional EZdrummer view, displaying all your previously installed Toontrack MIDI.

RECORD: Use an e-kit or any controller to record MIDI straight into EZdrummer 2.From there you'll have endless options to customize or refine your performance.


TURN IT INTO A SONG
When you have your basic idea down or found the groove you want to base your song around, EZdrummer 2 introduces several features that lets you finish your entire track without leaving the program. No more dragging and dropping to your DAW - it all happens in EZdrummer 2.

SONG CREATOR: Drop your groove into the MIDI drop zone and EZdrummer 2 will conveniently list all grooves and fills with a similar feel and style. From there, simply drag and drop to build your track or let EZdrummer 2 lay out a complete song from one of its templates.

SONG TRACK: Drag and drop any MIDI in the browser directly to the timeline to build your song. Cut blocks, copy and paste other MIDI, add fills, auto-quantize - just to name a few options.

EXPORT: Drag your entire song to your desktop or DAW. EZdrummer 2 also allows you to render any MIDI directly to audio.


TALK TO YOUR DRUMMER
EZdrummer 2 comes with a host of new, groundbreaking features centered on getting a personalized drum track quicker than ever before. In fact, for the first time ever in a drum software setting, the user can now "communicate" with the drummer - in real-time.

POWER HAND: Drag to any drum or cymbal to instantaneously change the leading instrument - while your groove is playing.

AMOUNT: Control the amount of hits on a single drum or the whole kit - live, in real-time. This feature is based on an algorithm that calculates the probabilities of where a real drummer would add or remove hits from the groove. This means that changing the amount knob does not arbitrarily add or subtract hits from the groove block, it uses information garnered from several thousand real drum performances. You can even add in instruments that aren't playing in your particular groove by highlighting them and turning the knob.

VELOCITY: Alter the velocity of a single drum or the entire kit. Also based on the same smart algorithm, meaning EZdrummer 2 doesn't just lower overall velocity on random.

PERCUSSION: Add a suitable percussion pattern to any groove on the fly - choose between instant rhythms custom-made for cowbell, snaps, claps, maracas and tambourine. Adjusting the amount knob will change the playing variation instantaneously.


EMBELLISH YOUR SOUND
Done with your drum track? With the sounds, features and much improved audio handling in EZdrummer 2, you'll have the creative freedom to customize your final output and have it sounding better than ever before.

NEW AUDIO ENGINE: EZdrummer 2 has a completely remodeled engine under the hood - faster, leaner and producing enhanced end-results in terms of realism and quality.

¢ Real-time sample rate conversion
¢ More individual hits per sample layer
¢ Improved hi-hat transmute
¢ Multiple Hits Emulation (MHE) for smoother sequenced hits

NEW SOUNDS: An all-new sound library featuring a modern and a vintage setup as well as a selection of percussion. In total, five new kits and an array of alternatives for snares, bass drums and cymbals. Recorded by Grammy award-winning engineer Chuck Ainlay (Dire Straits, Dixie Chicks) at Mark Knopfler's British Grove Studios in London, England.

MIX & MATCH: EZdrummer 2 doesn't restrict you to only the sounds available in its core content - it allows for seamless auditioning of any instrument in your previously installed EZdrummer expansion libraries (EZXs). This also of course means you can mix, match and build your own custom kits, directly in EZdrummer 2. All previously released EZX libraries will be optimized for EZdrummer 2 with new graphics and preset content, giving the user a fresh, new creative spin on already installed sounds.

NEW MIXER & EFFECTS: EZdrummer 2 has a completely new mixer and collection of presets, both for the modern and the vintage setup. The preset engine is based around the numerous quality effects in Toontrack's widely acclaimed EZmix 2. Each setting includes a back-end of various signal chains such as compressors, reverbs, delays and EQs. With settings covering anything from classic rock to disco and modern metal, you can instantly call up a starting point for your song and, if you so choose, continue to customize it into something completely new with each preset's unique set of parameters.

I have been using EZ Drummer for making quick and easy drums that sound real. The drums sound great the average person would have no idea that you didn't have someone play them for real. EZ Drummer is an affordable way to get your ideas down without having to spend thousands on mics and the time for a studio.

Bought this from the local GS and they gave me a receipt with a Lic# on it to use on the Toontrack web site.
After figuring out where to enter it the download began. When I opened it there were no files.
I have been emailing back and forth for a week now (no phone number for support) and tried to delete and re download it 3 times per their instruction and still nothing. Very frustrating!

        If you do not have a drummer do not worry there is EZDrummer! Perfect for beginner or advanced. Was able to produce a workable drum part in an hour. Exactly as described and much easier to deal with than a real drummer!

        Awesome! Very simple to get a drumbeat setup or an entire song. Just loop it and start playing guitar to it and coming up with ideas. No processing needed.

          Love it. Great for putting drums to your riffs or just jamming to drum and song ideas for inspiration. Great sounding drums that you can still EQ individually in your DAW.

          Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer 2:

          I wish I would have had this years ago. Expansion packs are somewhat pricey, but I guess that comes with the territory. The Jazz pack is impressive. I sculpted an entire tune in about an hour, and that was after only an hour of learning the plugin. They named it right...EZdrummer!

          Sound just like a real drummer because it is

          Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer 2:

          I have used it for a month now. The program has no limits but for user time to learn. I have out grown the basic tracks in the standard issue considering the song I have in my head, but there are as many new drum tracks to purchase. It just more money that's all. I do like it however.
