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.

  • Same extensive layer depth on all drums and cymbals as in EZdrummer's big brother - dfh SUPERIOR
  • Ranges from entry level usability to pro handling
  • Features multiple microphone control
  • TPC II reduces system requirements to a minimum
  • Operates in general MIDI
  • Internal mixer allows stereo and multitrack routing into the host through one single plug-in
  • Preset mix modes for quick sound changes

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 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.

EZDrummer

By David

from Weston, MA

Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

EZDrummer is really a fantastic product. It runs great as a stand alone instrument to practice to or as an integral part within a computer based system. I run it in MOTU Digital Performer 6.0 on an iMac and it works great. Excellent sounds and rhythms and very flexible and diverse with the built in internal mixing board to adjust the mix coming from the various "live" mics. Great job.

AWESOME

By EDOG

from Tennessee

Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

Great program! I have rust on my drum kit from this plug-in. Easy to use and it sounds great. Also you have control over everything. The clincher was when I had a session booked and the Drummer could'nt show up. So we picked a pattern looped it and played to the pattern and click so we could later add the drummer... my client loved the sound and payed me the same as having the drummer to mapout the whole pattern. Now I'm gonna get some add on kits to expand the sound.

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!

Ez Drummer is EZ!

By Verndog

from Weatherly, PA

Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

When I first received this product, I went through the install as usual. I was surprised when I was done, I was done!! Having the EZ Drummer open in it's own player is also a nice feature. You can get some pre-drum writing done before opening your preferred DAW. When you do, most of your work is done! The tones and the different kits that are available are just clear and great sounding. A very affordable and usable program.

Awesome Product!

By Josh Holthusen

from Wichita, KS.

Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

I have been looking for a program like this for a long time. EZ Drummer is full of great grooves, fills and realistic drum sounds. The Humanizer function gives this program that "real drummer" feel. The drag and drop option is awesome. It is called "EZ" for a reason. I highly recommend this product. 5 Stars all the way. As a side note, Guitar Center shipped immediately. I ordered online and received the procut the next day!
