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 drum set worthy of high-end studios, but available for computer-based home recording studios too.

This drum 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.

Ratta - ta -ta

By Wayne Carson

from Las Vegas, NV

Comments about Toontrack EZ Drummer Lite Upgrade to EZDrummer:

An exceptional source of a basic full drum kit sounds, tones and rhythmic styles, patterns and fills to choose from. Toontrack has since also added numerous expansion drum kits and midi patterns to fill a library. My favorite is Nashville, but the basic and Vintage have their place in my drum kit arsenal too. The basic kit sounds great to me. The midi patterns have been humanized and during playback you can not tell if a real drummer played them or not. The wave samples of each instrument (tom, snare, hat, etc) and velocity are exceptional. You need a host sequencer and EZ drummer becomes a plugin. After installation when you first open EZ drummer you will need to create an account and activate the plugin via Toontracks website, but it�ۡ���s simple and fast and updates are available. You can run the software on two computers if they are part of the same audio production suite. The mixer allows you to overall level and pan the kick, snare, hat, toms, ride and overheads individually. This is something you couldn�ۡ���t do on a single track in basic host sequencers until recently. So forget GM midi drums. Get real. Try it, you won�ۡ���t be disappointed.

Great Sounding Easy to Use Drum Generation program

By RJC Studios

from Hamburg, NJ

Comments about Toontrack EZ Drummer Lite Upgrade to EZDrummer:

I upgraded to EZDrummer from the Lite version that was included in my Presonus Artist Software. The Lite version was Extremely limited but the Full version is great. It's easy to use and I'm able to make some great loops with the software. I was torn between EZDrummer and Superior Drummer but I decided to save some money. Usually I regret buying the less expensive version, but not this time. EZDrummer does everything I need it to do at a great price. Get it!

Instant Great-Sounding Drum Parts

By Mel

from Tulsa, OK

Comments about Toontrack EZ Drummer Lite Upgrade to EZDrummer:

When trying to knock out a jingle or a song idea, I always stumbled when it came to drums. I'm not a drummer, so during the "idea stage", I relied on ACID-style drum loops to help me get started. The problem was, I usually had to settle for loops that were only CLOSE to the sounds and patterns I wanted, and my creations suffered. Then, a friend recommended Toontrack's EZ Drummer. The sounds are excellent, the program doesn't strain my computer, and the MIDI patterns that come with the basic system and the expansion packs are just what the doctor ordered. Most of the time, I can quickly find a pattern or two that very closely approximate what I'm hearing in my head...and I can get on to developing other areas on my songs. EZ Drummer has removed a huge stumbling block on my road to creativity. With it, I can quickly lay down ideas...and in many cases, the parts and sounds are so good that there is no need to have a drummer bring in a kit and replace parts later. Through some judicious MIDI editing, you can adjust hits to better suit the song you've written. A good set of real drums is expensive. Setting them up properly takes a lot of precious studio time. The amount of mics necessary to make a great drum recording is costly. EZ Drummer is not only easy, it's wildly inexpensive.

EZdrummer rocks

By Andrew T.

from Salt Lake City, Utah

Comments about Toontrack EZ Drummer Lite Upgrade to EZDrummer:

I purchased ezdrummer about 2 months ago and it is a great product. I use it with Padkontrol and it works flawless. The drums sound great on ez, but what is really cool are the expansion packs like the vintage and Jazz drum packs. If you've had a hard time finding drummers that aren't crazy then pick this up.

Ez Drummer Rocks

By Tom W.

from Mobile, Alabama

Comments about Toontrack EZ Drummer Lite Upgrade to EZDrummer:

I purchased EZ Drummer about 3 months ago and it has totally changed the way I lay out ideas on Sony Music Studio. I was using a Boss Drum machine to create drum tracks and now its collecting dust! I plan on buying the Drumkit from Hell expansion pack soon. This is definitely a great buy!
