Great sounds from Futureman!

Note: This product requires EZdrummer version 1.3 and up, EZdrummer 2, or Superior Drummer 2.3 or above.

With the Jazz EZX, you can tap into the sound and abilities of drum and percussion virtuoso Roy "Futureman" Wooten. Futureman is widely known as the percussive force behind Bela Fleck and the Flecktones among others, and his innovative drumming crests well beyond simply keeping time. The recordings for the Jazz EZX were handled at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, and raises the bar for sound quality in sampled libraries. Roy Wooten has a unique approach to providing grooving beats, and Jazz EZX gives your tracks a touch of this magic. Highly recommended by Sweetwater!

Toontrack Jazz EZX Features:
  • Product delivered by download
  • Jazz and groove sample library for EZdrummer
  • Features sounds of Roy "Futureman" Wooten
  • Recorded at Blackbird Studios in Nashville
  • Requires a working EZdrummer or Superior Drummer 2.0 installation
Fat grooves from a true master with Toontrack's Jazz EZX!

Excellent sounds for a variety of music

Like all of the EZXs, the samples are uniformly fantastic and work great with the EZDrummer's sound engine. You'd have to put some work in to perfectly mimic a live performer for jazz but even with the quick-compose tools you can get pretty close. Good variety in the included MIDI (not always the case in some EZXs) and there are three available separate MIDI packs with a jazz focus that expand it.A couple of reviews mentioned lacking a sizzle cymbal; the Americana EZX has a 19" Zildjian Armand “Beautiful Baby" Sizzle Ride that sounds great. The other drums in that EZX go very well with the jazz MIDI.I just spent most of a day on the Toontrack website compiling a spreadsheet matrix of every EZX sample and kit combo to plan out my next buy and avoid duplicating (good news, out of over 1650 samples Toontrack only reused about 70 pieces among their whole EZX range). There is an 18" Pearl Reference kick included in the Jazz EZX, but none of the EZXs have a Gretsch Catalina or any kind of Flat ride (my best drummer 25 years ago had one I loved and have been chasing a digital version of).

Actually sounds like a real drummer

You can't beat this in terms of bang for your buck. I got this as my first expansion after purchasing EZ Drummer, and I was blown away in terms of sample sound quality and the included midi library. I remember my friends commenting how my drums no longer sounded like a drum machine. The original EZ Drummer midi files were too bland and just didn't have the subtle variations that a real drummer would have even after humanizing, etc. That's not the case here. It's so easy to get up and running on a new song, and the mixer presets for this expansion are very useful. Useful for more than just jazz. If you play coffee-shop style pop/rock/jazz you will find this invaluable!

Way better than the original

I thought the original EZ Drummer samples and grooves were good, but I was blown away by the Jazz EZX expansion. The samples are so much better and have a lot more variation in response to the MIDI note velocities. And the grooves are just simply outstanding! They've got a nice realistic quality that makes it sound less like a high-quality drum machine and more like a real drummer. The grooves are organized a bit differently than I was used to in the original - with similar/complimentary beats grouped into songs.
