AudioMIDI also had NI Studio Drummer for $75.00 right now. That plug in is real good too....
Never heard of it.
Amazon is selling EZ Drummer for $69 today...
EZ Drummer is fantastic sounding
I liked the Black Friday sale price of $29.99 better!
Yup, this is what I recently bought it for!
I bought it at Amazon 2 weeks ago for 64.99. The other drumpacks were also 39.99 until last Sunday, when they jumped up to 49.99 on Amazon.
EZ drummer is very nice, but if you can afford Superior drummer, its worth the added cost.
I used Ez drummer on my first album. solid program
Yeah, I have it too. This series really gets you an acoustic vibe, that "space" around the drums that convinces you it's real. Excellent samples and loops/midi sets as well. And the price is ridiculous. Guys today have no idea what us vets had to do back in the day to either record drums live (Ack!) or use the crapazoid samples of the day--they were beyond sucko. I had one of these...
Good grief. Barely better than a Roland TR beat machine. 12-bit and duller than dishwater. And time-consuming to program, and no midi sync. Just some kind of weird sync tone that I never used anyways. You just laid down the drum track to tape and everybody overdubbed over it. But of course, you had no mixing capability at that point. Sweet. A few guys actually recorded hits with this! But we all would have KILLED for EZ drummer!
I read somewhere that EZ Drummer has the effects essentially incorporated, making it pretty much plug and play, and Superior Drummer has dry drums more suited to professional tweaking?
I have yet to settle on a plan for final drum parts for my projects. I bought EZ Drummer, but so far it's still not easy enough for me.
I've still got to figure out how to use it in an efficient work flow sort of way.
I also have a maschine and battery 3, as well as a couple other drum programs. Too many choices. But I still am thinking that EZ drummer is going to be the fastest and easiest one to learn first.
What's the easiest way to learn to use it? Any good tutorials?
There are good Youtube vids on the basics, and yes it is very easy to learn. Superior drummer has much more functionality if you need it, but I've gotten some HUGE drum sounds out of EZ just by mixing the stock samples well and using plugins (Comp, EQ, Verb) on the snare and kick to really make them pop.
All my drummer friends are seriously blown away by the sound.
No love for addictive drums???
I liked the demo for AD way better than EZ drummer, but that's just me.
Why oh why do they waste our time with these idiotic protection schemes. I'm sure that it is trivially downloaded for someone that doesn't buy it but they punish a legitimate purchaser.
I was really excited about picking it up on the discount until I read people talking about having to activate it and all that crap. no thanks.
I paid $50 for mine and a week later it was $35 on sale...
I prefer superior much more than addictive. A friend got addictive and I found superior was easier to get things to sit in the mix easier.
The 'Metal Foundry' expansion for superior is AMAZING.
Its not just metal drums, it covers quite a few different sounds.
Superior can sound polished with very little effort if you desire (it comes with presets) but you have really amazing capacity to tweak the sound to your hearts content. Alot of the EZ-drummer kits are small snapshots of the superior kits.
EZDrummer changed my life. True story.
I have the TD3 v-drums. Having them trigger AD was a revelation.
Addictive drums made me want to actually get better at drumming. I'm a guitar player usually.
Would love to try Superior.
