In Stock!

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.

Note: This is a special offer for users of EZdrummer to crossgrade to Superior 2.0 at a reduced cost. Call your Sales Engineer for more details.

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.

Built-in Effects

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.

ABSOLUTE BEST OF THE BEST

okay i have a hybrid electronic drum set (roland/alesis) and after carefully testing 1) Addictive Drums 2) BFD2 3) Steve Slate Drums 4) EZ Drummer (toontrack) 5) The drum sets in Logic 6) Finally Toontrack's Superior Drummer. You can make whatever you want for your triggers. You want 3 rides instead of 1? go right ahead and the gain settings allow for the drum/cymbal to sound loud and clear. After you get the hang of mapping the darn thing, then you will for sure love this software. I really thought SSD was the answer but the truth is SD is SO much better you have SO many more options. Listen I've spent tons of money on all these virtual drum software programs, and now I know for SURE SD is the BEST way to go unless you can get an acoustic drum set and know HOW TO MIC IT.

Superior Drummer Crossgrade

I went from EZ Drummer to Superior. My drum sounds and options have gotten much better and I still keep the expansion packs from EZ Drummer! Also the drum mixing is much easier, it's all done in Superior drummer.

Awesome Sound - Easy To Use

This software is great! Not only is it easy to use, it sounds awesome. The expansion packs are getting better and better. It's really opening things up for me being a solo recording musician. It's like having a pro drummer at your disposal.....without him hitting on your girlfriend!!!

Aaron Rom

I rely on Toontrack Superior Drummer 2 for all of my in-the-box work, whether I'm writing demos for my band or programming drums for other people. As a drummer, the ability to shape the sounds, and come up with a kit that "sounds like me" is absolutely crucial. This is simply a must-have product.
