Looks cool. Like a pumped up EZDrummer but with a lot of genre presets and no need to buy expansions. Anyone try it out yet?

i had "something to do with" one of the demo tracks on the site. obviously i can't write my opinion here. i'm curious to hear your candid opinion of the demos and wonder if you get anything out of them

Demos? Where can these be found?

it'll start playing the first one.
if you roll over the screen you'll see a thing that looks like a timeline that actually shows the start of each successive demo. bizarre nav in my opinion :)

I picked up NI Komplete 8 (http://www.amazon.com/mn/search?_encoding=UTF8&x=0&y=0&field-keywords=komplete%208&url=search-alias%3Daps&_encoding=UTF8&tag=erzmu-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=390957) a few weeks ago and it includes Studio Drummer in the package (along with GuitarRig, Kontakt, Massive, all the pianos, Abbey Road drums, synth's, etc).
Pretty sweet actually. I'm still playing with it, but the drums sound reallllllly good. Obviously since it's in Kontakt you can tweak how each drum sounds, so I've only really scratched the surface, but so far it's far better than the drum machine I'd been using for the past 10 years. :-) I'm never going back.

Demos sound great (assuming you played something on them, Good job!)
What I'm liing it that you can tweak everything (eq, pan, comp, saturate) them send it to channel in your DAW as to EZDRummer I have to make 8 tracks for 8 drums to customize each drum part.

I listened to the demos. . .you're right. . .they sound great. . .Now, how do you use the drum sounds. . .Are they played by a trigger device like a keyboard or Zendrum or did you use some preset/premade grooves? If so, how are they transported into ProTools?
