Yeah, I bought EZ Drummer thinking it would make things easier as well. I don't really see that much of a difference between that and the loops that are included with Garageband and the Jam Packs. Maybe I just haven't figured it out yet.
PS Did you see that Superdrag is recording a new record with the original lineup?
ACID 6 is a recording software. no? this version of ez drummer is supposed to come with an interface that allows you to audition drums samples via a picture of a drumset, and also is supposed to include midi tracks of various patterns...unless other posters are correct and its not the full version, although nothing on the package says "expansion".I think the OP is confused about how to load a softsynth plugin.
You have to have Sonar, Logic, Tracktion, Ableton Live... Some lomd of recording software.
Then you load ezd up as a software instrument and control in via a midi track..
