I purchased this EZ Drummer software a few days ago in store (Guitar Center). I got the download link and downloaded software. Installed it to my computer,clicked icon and cant see anything except a promt to install. I ve had confirmation and authorization code sent to me. I ve been to toontrack site countless times to remedy this but have had no luck. There is no known phone number to contact anyone. I called Guitar Center and they were to call me back and help but never heard from them again. I m hoping this software is worth it for all the trouble so far. I would ve been much happier with a CD to install with.
if you think this product will give you amazing drum recordings think again. it sounds great, but the process of building great drum tracks has nothing to do with this software. you will still be working in the piano roll window either way. i was really bummed to see how few drum samples you actually get with EZdrummer. from what i can tell, this is just another drum kit. yes it sounds better than the ones that came with your DAW and has more volume and velocity control but thats it. its a 5 piece kit with expanded sounds..no double bass, limited kits, limited sounds. you can achieve the same sound quality with reverb and compression and tweeking the sound of your DAW factory plug ins. the install was a total joke as well, the security measures are way over the top and quite confusing at that.
