Best of all, you don't need to be a MIDI-programing guru to put EZdrummer to work. With a couple of mouse clicks, you can audition drums, drag and drop loops in to your DAW, and construct complete drum tracks. Keep reading to find out more reasons why Sweetwater Sales Engineers love Toontrack's EZdrummer rhythm software.
Toontrack EZdrummer Multi-microphone Drum Sampler Software at a Glance:
Freakishly easy-to-use software interface
True to its name, Toontrack's EZdrummer is one of the easiest-to-use programs of its kind. EZdrummer's user interface is extremely visually oriented, with virtually all of the important functions available right on the surface. It's incredibly intuitive. That means you don't have to dig through menus to find the sounds you want. If you want to hear what a drum sounds like, just click on the drum in the graphic layout. Want to load a groove? EZdrummer's simple groove browser lets you quickly find the rhythm you're looking for, and you can drag and drop grooves right into your DAW for sequencing. There's nothing to it!
Incredibly detailed drum sounds and MIDI grooves
Under the hood, EZdrummer is anything but simple. Each drum sound is made of up hundreds of samples that automatically switch, change volume, and blend together to provide you with perfectly realistic results. What's more, the sounds that come with EZdrummer were recorded at Avatar Studios in New York by an amazing team that included producer Pat Thrall (Glenn Hughes, Black Crowes), engineer Neil Dorfsman (Kiss, Bruce Springsteen, Dire Straits, Sting), and drummer Nir Z, whose credits include Genesis and Joss Stone. In addition to recording the drum sounds, this team also laid down over 8,000 MIDI grooves - and that's just the basic EZdrummer content! There's a huge selection of EZX expansion packs to choose from, so no matter the style, finding the right drums for your music is easy.
Easily integrates into your system
Let's face it, not all music technology seems to get along. One of things we at Sweetwater love about EZdrummer is how incredibly stable and compatible it is. That may be because Toontrack didn't design EZdrummer to require loads and loads of RAM or the latest and greatest processors, but that's just part of it. What's also great about EZdrummer is how easy it is to play with MIDI controllers, including electronic drums that use advanced MIDI to regulate the hi-hat's open and closed position (e.g. Roland's V Drums). This makes EZdrummer an obvious choice, especially if you know you'll want to use it with any kind of advanced MIDI setup.

by Chris Horton from Savannah, GAThis thing is amazing. It loaded into my DAW easily, and I programmed a professional sounding song the next week. It takes some time to program a fully custom pattern/song, but once you get the hang o... read more [+]f it, its really easy.

The drum kit that comes as the default can be used for rock, metal or anything else. It has a really neutral sound. Theres plenty of options to change the sound, as well. It has its on mixer, mic bleed control, EVERYTHING!
If you are looking for an easy to use virtual drum machine, then this is it. close [-]
Yikes! THIS is Aptly-Named!

I play a lot of instruments, but not drums. Over the years, I've tried many - far too many - ways to get drums into my songs. That includes Battery, Guru, many drumbos (Rol... read more [+]and, Yamaha, Alesis, etc.), Ableton, and Sonar's Session Drummer... and with the sole exception of my old TR-707 with its grid programming, nothing worked for me. The drumbo boxes were too time-rigid, took a long time to program, and weren't terribly inspiring. The software was too fussy and clinical, and sucked up even more of my life - hours and hours squinting at a frigging Piano Roll. My Kronos has great sounds, but no easy way to program them (I've configured BGP in Cisco routers that were easier to navigate!).
I spoke with my SE, Delvin Wolf, who suggested EZdrummer, and for a hundred backs, I figured it was worth a try.
All I can say is "Wow!". :)
Of course it sounds great, and all the good stuff every reviewer says is true... but to me, the greatest thing this software does, is that IT GIVES ME MY LIFE BACK. In less than 3 hours (including the time spent to load the software!) I had fully-realized drum tracks for two songs, of such Quality and humanity that my musician friends thought I had contracted a drummer.
I could go on, but why bother? EZdrummer is GREAT. It reduces the time spent getting credible drum tracks from cira 20-40 hours per-song to ABOUT AN HOUR. A product that does what it is advertised to do, with expandability, flexibility, killer sound, superb ease-of-use, and a very reasonable price. I love it - I just LOVE it! close [-]
by Chris K from Denver, COEasy to use, sounds great. It's exactly what I was looking for - i can work on making music, not screwing around with the software.

Inexpensive, excellent sound quality, and expandable. This is a great addition to any DAW production station. If you want something simple to use then EZdrummer is it.
