Overview

EZdrummer was designed to give you optimum drum-sample quality presented in a compact, affordable plug-in format that's as easy to use as it is to mix. With Toontrack's EZdrummer, musicians and producers can simply drag-and-drop audition sounds and construct drumkits recorded with multi-microphone setups. You also get a mixer that allows stereo and multitrack routing into the host via a single plug-in and has presets for quick mix modes quick sound changing. With the second-generation Toontrack Percussive Compression (TPC), system requirements are low, meaning this is a very accessible virtual kit worthy of high-end studios, but available for the home studio too.

EZdrummer sampler features the recording and producing expertise of Pat Thrall (Pat Travers, Black Crowes) and Neil Dorfsman (Dire Straits, Paul McCartney), the drumming skills of Nir Z (Genesis, Joss Stone, John Mayer), and the engineering help of Toontrack's own Mattias Eklund and Henrik Kjellberg. Their combined efforts have produced an extensive collection of more than 8000 MIDI files captured at Avatar Studios, a 50-year old venue that has been the place where a veritable who's who of award-winning musicians have bottled their magic.

EZdrummer is now Windows Vista compatible.

Awesome plugin... and yes, unfortunately it's only a plug in so you have to use it within a host program. I use it in protools and it's amazing. I'm really bad with figuring out new programs and this one took 15 mins to figure out how to use within protools and assign individual drum parts to individual tracks. I think the hardest part was figuring how to authorize the program. You MUST register the program before you can authorize it...so install it somewhere you have an internet connection. It comes with this add in software called Toontreack Solo which is supposed to allow you to run the program as a standalone unit but it never finds your audio drivers and basically doesn't work. Use it in a host program and you'll be fine. Samples sound GREAT, the program gives a lot of control over the virtual "mics", the pre-programmed drum patterns are good enough for most things. Great product for the money! But it could use better installation directions!

This really IS a great program, but unless you have a fair amount of computer know-how behind you, it is a pain in the backside to get it to work correctly. I go online with my studio computer ONLY to update or purchase software for my studio. ToonTracks (EzDrummer) will assign a computer ID for your authorization code while you're online and registering. Once you disable your internet connection to protect your computer, the authorization code that they give you doesn't work "offline" You have to be online for it to work. I've hit the help forum for Toon Track and lots of folks have tried to help me, but there has been no solution to this issue. I bought the program several weeks ago, and have a few hundred $$ invested into upgrades, different kits, midi packs etc, and I STILL have to re-authorize evertime I use it. I haven't given up yet because it really IS a cool program, but I'm close to writing it off and getting something else. I don't wanna have a degree in computer science to get a drum program to work....I just wanna write some tunes.

Great buy!

By Christopher Mcginnis

from Livonia, MI

Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

Compared to the other ToonTrack titles, this is a very large-scale demo. But it's very well done, easy to use, and very cheap. I ended up boxing up the studio drums and used the software because nobody can tell the difference!

Great tool

By marcio lopes

from Charleston, SC

Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

The only reason why I did not give this one a 5-star rating is because for the price of the program, I think it should include the expansion packages. Included with the basic package is a wide variety of loops and fills that literally enable you to drag and drop into a recording software and there you'll have a drum track set in no time. The best feature for me is that each drum kit is premixed with the right tone and volume per each piece, and if you are using any recording software, you can make your own beats by clicking on a recording grid with your mouse, and in no time you will have a customized loop that will sound great. I have the basic package and the Drumkit Fromk Hell expansion package, and recommend them both.

So easy to use even I can figure it out!

By Wayne Glaser

from Rush, NY

Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

I loaded up the software and it linked right up with Sonar wit h no issues. I had it up in running within a couple minutes after loading the software. The drag and drop interface works with ease, you can drag and drop or drag on sample over and copy and paste the sample to make it even quicker to build a basic drum track. Buy it! You'll like it!

Great product

By Ed Fensholt

from Olathe, Kansas

Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

This is a terrific product for the price. I've been playing guitar for two years and do a little recording in my home. This software supplies an almost endless variety of percussion tracks to record or simply play along with. You can select the baseline beat, add or delete percussion instruments, increase or decrease the BPM, insert fills between verses. Not only great for recording, but makes practicing a heck of a lot more fun that playing along with a metronome. Was easy to install.

EZ Drummer Lite Upgrade and Presonus Studio Artist One Pro are compatible

By Pete Wyndham

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

I recently purchased the EZ Drummer Lite upgrade and installed on my Presonus Studio Artist One Pro with out excessive hassle. I noted that I did have to save the download files to my computer instead of running them from Toontracks website. This allowed me then to go into the downloaded files and click on the install file. After I did this, I went into Studio Artist Pro, opened a new song, dragged EZ Drummer to a empty track and got a prompt to enter auth code that I received via email from Toontracks previously when I had completed the online registration process of the EZ Drummer Lite upgrade. Hopefully this helps out the guy that posted about his SAP issue.

Great bargain!

By Gregg

from Marysville, OH

Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

I got a deal from Guitar Center on this one (half price!) which was fantastic considering that I was serious looking to purchase this program anyway. The sale sealed the deal for me. I am just beginning to explore the capabilities of Logic and, along with that of course, virtual instruments. EZdrummer appealed to me because of the ease of use and expansion pack availability. My only concern was whether it could "randomize" hits within repeating patterns so that it sounds more like a human drummer. After waiting a week for shipping, I installed the program with no problems. The first time I launched EZdrummer within Logic I had to register and receive a passcode/computer code in order for it to be activitated. Again, this was no hassle for me. Using the program is very intuitive. You can learn all of the functions from the intro Flash video (available at any time from the program). Loading into Logic is simple drag and drop for the loops and the variations help with the human-like factor. There is a "humanize" button, but it is very subtle. I need to study more about what it is doing. This version comes with plenty of patterns for straight ahead rock or ballad type music as well as a Cocktail set that includes Samba type patterns. You can set either kit to play any pattern. The internal mixer with different mic options is a nice feature and lets you mix the drum sounds before they go into Logic. Overall I am very satisfied and will most likely get more expansion sets.

BOOM!

Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

This program is to good to be true. It's so easy it seems like cheating.The only bad thing is you have to by differnt kits that cost more than the origonal program but its cool cause its worth it. The sounds are really real and actualy sound better than some real drums you would here in death metal bands today (cough, dethklok, cough). Over all this program is real versitial and worth every penny!

TERRIBLE SUPPORT

By Upset User

from Middletown, OH

Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

Purchased Presonus Studio One Pro (which by the way is amazing) and it came with EZdrummer Lite and it worked fine. Tried to upgrade and it wont upgrade and I wasted money on an upgrade and drumkit package. Now the support is telling me it is my own fault and that they wont do anything. TERRIBLE!

It's OK for Rock

By Charlie

from san francisco, ca

Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

I can see it would work well for musicians used to working with drums samples for Rock. I'm looking for more acoustic sounding, less processed drum samples and being able to add the processing myself - according to the project I'm working on. These days I make my living playing piano/kbds, used to be full time drummer back in the day. I would've liked to see the standard drum midi set up for the keyboard in which latin percussion instruments are available.
