Like Having a Session Drummer in Your DAW
Toontrack Superior Drummer 2 drum software gives you incredible drum control while maintaining an intuitive interface that's reminiscent of EZdrummer. They've completely overhauled the dfh-Superior engine so it's optimized for use with electronic drum kits. There is also even more effective use of sample layers and much faster loading times than before. Plus, the sounds are top-notch. So good, in fact, that Toontrack updated the Superior Drummer 2 engine expressly to showcase them, instead of just releasing them as an expansion pack. Whether you're stepping up from EZdrummer, or you're craving a professional, and ultra-flexible virtual drummer for your sessions, Sweetwater knows you won't want to miss Toontrack Superior Drummer 2.
Top-notch drum sounds
The Toontrack production team went to work at Avatar Studios originally slating the recordings as an expansion pack for dfh Superior. Yet, after hearing them, they all decided that the sounds were too important and too special to be just another expansion pack — so they went to work creating Superior Drummer 2 so that musicians and engineers the world over could creatively take advantage of them. Superior Drummer 2 has since been dubbed: "The New York Studio Legacy Series."
Enhanced features, intuitive user interface
Toontrack wanted to make sure that Superior Drummer 2 was not only appealing for the most demanding, deep-function-seeking users, but that it also maintained an intuitive user interface to save you creative time and energy. Such new enhancements include an updated MIDI engine and arranger, as well as "X-pads" that let you load instruments from any Toontrack library to add positions or to double instruments on the position of your choice. Improved loading times, more effective use of sample layers, and seamless use with electronic drums are all enhanced features — plus, you'll enjoy the ability to read and combine all Superior and EZdrummer sound libraries.
Not only does Superior Drummer 2 give you top-notch sounds, you also have an all-new internal mixer that boasts bussing capabilities, as well as built-in effects made by premium UK software developer, Sonalksis. Such effects include a 5-band EQ, highpass, lowpass, gate, compressor, and transient filters. With Superior Drummer 2, you have all the tools you need to create incredible, fully-realized drum tracks.
