Product Description

EZdrummer was designed to give you optimum drum-sample quality presented in a compact, affordable plug-in format that's as easy to use as it is to mix. With Toontrack's EZdrummer, musicians and producers can simply drag-and-drop audition sounds and construct drumkits recorded with multi-microphone setups. 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 kit worthy of high-end studios, but available for the home studio too. EZdrummer 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.EZdrummer is now Windows Vista compatible.

I'm a bit baffled by some of the reviews here. I got EZDrummer recently and I'm very happy with it so far. Let me clear up a few things:

1) It's a virtual instrument (says so right on the name). Apparently some people don't understand what that means. What that means is that you plug it into your favorite "main" sequencer program (FL Studio, Cubase, Mixcraft, whatever) and use it from there. Actually, EZ Drummer *does* come with a stand-alone program as well, but it's mainly a virtual instrument. Complaining that you need to buy a sequencer to use it is like complaining that you need to have a computer or an operating system, or a disk drive, or a power outlet. Duh! That's it's nature, and it's well understood.

2) The licensing is not *that* bad. Here's what it is: you install the program from the disk, you login to their website and fill in some info including the "license key" that comes with your disk, Toontrack generates an automated email containing an authcode that is specific to your computer and your serial number, you type that in on your computer, and you are done. The bottom line is that you can set two machines up to run with a single copy of EZDrummer. Then if you want to install it on a 3rd machine you have to de-activate one of the licenses that you had previously activated.

I'm not real thrilled about the licensing. It is certainly a bit confusing, and I wish it were either a little more flexible or let you license it via a dongle but I've seen much much worse, and I had things running 15-20min after inserting the disk into my machine. It's actually pretty similar to how Adobe does licensing for example.

Ok, so how is it at helping you create drum beats? Seems pretty darn good to me. The "default" drum beats are great.

I have several drum programs (Session Drummer Three, Studio Drummer, and Stylus RMX among others) and EZDrummer is pretty decent. It is not great because you get nowhere near the control you get with something like Stylus. The base package has a reasonable but not very robust number of kits and midi patterns. I think it is more an entry point to get you to buy expansion packs. That is fine as far as it goes. It is at least easy to get things going once you install and start to use the package, especially if you have used this type of software before. Now....the intallation issues. If you follow the instructions I am going to give you you will not have any problems. Otherwise, your mileage may vary! For the record, I am on Windows 7 64 bit Professional. Here goes....

1) Get onto and immediately create an account for yourself. Use your account to register your copy of the software. Note that I said to do this FIRST, BEFORE you even try to install anything. Stay on this web site because you have to be on it to activate the software. Registration and activation are two separate things. Activation is a PER COMPUTER thing.

2) Now that you have an account and have registered your product, you can go to the download section for support and get the latest patches for EZDrummer, the Cocktail Lounge kits package, and the standalone application. It is very important to get BOTH the 32 bit AND 64 bit update patches for EZDrummer. You do NOT have to get the downloadable copy of the EZDrummer software. It won't help you. It is actually at least as out of date as the 2 year old software on the DVD it ships with. Yes....this is a complete disgrace and should not be this way! It will want to put this program in the Program Files (x86) directory.

Hands down the best drummer I've worked with. Shows up on time, has no ego, and has no psycho girlfriend to deal with. Oh and did I mention that it sounds amazing?

I love this software. I've had it for two weeks and fell so in love with how easy it is to use that I just ordered all the expansion packs.

I was trying to use Session Drummer2 that came bundled with Sonar 7. It was awful. Took me two recording sessions to figure out that it would be forever useless. I now use EZdrummer exclusivley.

There is no end to what you can do with this software. Drag and drop and then edit the clip if needed. Just go to toontracks website and check out the video. If your not sold then get a real drummer.

But if your like me and you live in an apartment and you are tired of using drum machines that sound, well machine like. Then this is for you.

As for the whole registering it thing,it ain't that bad. In fact it was no harder then when I loaded up Sonar and had to go thru registering that.

Let me start by saying that I've only been working with EZdrummer for a day, but I still would like to share my experience so far. I ordered the physical DVD software package, so those of you considering this path, take note.

First, after reading online about how miserable the installation, registration, and authentication process could be, I decided to read all of the installation instructions that Toontrack made available through the product manual and their online support, hoping to avoid others' missteps. They don't provide very thorough instructions from either resource. The majority of the information I found was from reading online reviews. Registration is easy. They made authentication more complicated than it should've been. By using some fancy overzealous security measures they overrode my MacBook Pro's ability to copy and paste the authentication code so I had to type it in manually. I don't see how this improves their product security but it does make it more difficult for someone who legitimately bought their product. Annoying, yes, but not a big deal.

Now, between those two steps I was instructed to download and install the software updates. Two of the patches installed successfully but the largest file, and what appeared to be the primary update, would not install, regardless of what I tried. So, I contacted their support and explained the problem. And this was the email response I received (yes, copy and pasted):

"Certain older versions of EZdrummer that were printed on a DVD are not able to be updated to the latest version 1.3.1."

Umm, so why did you send Amazon, which then sent me, an obsolete product that can't be updated?
