    I have owned the product for over 2 years, using it extensively.The drum sounds are good and the product is best used at 44.1khz recording (which is what the samples are at). You can route kit into 8 different channels (if your host program allows), so you can get fine control over the 8 tracks. (e.g. if you want compression, reverb on the snare, eq the kick drum, adjust the panning on the toms, etc).Of course, you can just use the onboard mixer to adjust the levels of the drum mics and not get into the detail if you choose not to.The included midi-grooves are very good but not terribly useful if you get away from standard rock/pop. Fortunately, you can buy expansions that now cover a wide variety of styles that give you more grooves, fills and of course, more drum kits.This product will not take the place of a good drummer and if you want the drum track to fit your particular song perfectly, then you will still have to spend the time tweaking the tracks. There's no way around that. For throwing together a quick demo this is lightning fast, and making customized tracks doesn't take long either.

    Does not work properly on 64 bit

    Do NOT buy this if you have a 64 bit system. I have a lot of toontrack software I cannot use because of Windows 7.

    Great program!!

    Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

    EZ Drummer is a great plug in for recording because you can use it a more realistic click track as well as adding drum tracks to demos or projects you're working on. Also, a great use I've found is using the new Solo program for songwriting and while I teach guitar lessons. The students really like feeling like they're playing with a real drummer rather than a boring metronome. It may not have as many rhythmic variations as the more expensive options but for the price, it's a great tool.

    One of the Best

    By MetalGear21

    from Rexy, ID

    Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

    I currently have Cakewalks SI Drums, Session Drummer 2 and some free imitation 808 drums... I have heard samples and compared and contrasted BFD2, Steven Slate Drums (a close 2nd) session drummer 3, addictive drums, abbey roads drumms etc. but I still like EZ Drummers/superior 2,0's sounds the best. If you do your longtime homework you will find that EZDRUMMER has been used by big record companys and big names. I wish I had the money for it's big brother Superior Drummer 2.0 but I spread my cash in multiple plug-in directions. Feel free to review all you want but in the end you can't beat the price I got this for (79$) and It was money well spent. I love this plugin and it definitly delivers all that it promises and more.I have a large library of free midi drum files and a feature I found extremely useful in EZDRUMMER is that you can drop thos into it and sample them quickly and painlessly. You can seriously mix and match fills verses, choruses etc. with ease. You have enough control of the overall sound of the drums with having the ability to adjust two different mic settings on the drums and the volume/panning of each individual drum. It comes loaded with pre made patterns as well which was sweet to find. The drums have an authentic sound to them so rest assured. Don't take my word from it check out samples in various places and compare and contrast. Word to the wise... some video samples on Youtube do not do the drums justice... take in a count that it is the video quality not the drums. you will find some that sound great!!! Don't hesitate get EXDRUMMER for a more quality affordable sound!

    Left many drummers unemployed

    By Snarling Dogs Fan

    from Chicago,IL

    Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

    Amazing product for home recording!EZ to work with and sound quality is so professional.Many drummers left unemployed after EZ Drummer release,sad but true-what to do?Today it's not like in the 80's.You just go to the local music store and buy bunch of legal software or download not so legal ones and there you have it.Put pair of nice monitors,good audio interface and start recording.But now back to EZ drummer.It's really cool and if you buy the expansion packs you'll be OK..Plenty of samples,tempos and so on...It was the only missing link in my studio and now it's complete.One less musician to hire I guess.

    Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

    I use Cubase 5 and Windows Vista. I had no major issues loading this software. Works great, sounds great, and is pretty user friendly. With this program, and the midi drum editing in Cubase, I can now create some really nice drum tracks. Lovin it!

    Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

    This programmer kicks ass and sounds so real it's unbelievable. I use a Macbook Pro so it works fine for me, but I do see plenty of people having issues who use Windows. I feel bad for you guys, because this thing owns. I recommend expanding the software because the standard kits they give you get a little stale after a while. Drum Kit from Hell is a nice addition. Very awesome for metal.

    It's better than my real drummer.

    By Carnstein

    from Washington DC

    Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

    I got this on sale and it came with a free expansion, I got the Drum Kit from Hell one because I fancy myself a metalhead. I had no installation or compatibility issues, installed no problem. Unless your playing rock or pop rock you want to get the EZ drummer expansion for the genre of music you are playing so for me its really a two part deal.In terms of function though its great the sound is amazing, it really is high quality stuff. There is a good mixer with good "tweakability" to it and there are hundreds of midi patterns to use and you can always build your own or modify the existing ones to add variety, and if you modify or take the existing ones apart you really increase the potential by ten fold.It's basically replaced my drummer in the studio because it sounds so good and its easier than micing up his kit and sounds better than using an electronic set or triggers. So unless yuo got some sweet drum mics this is a good choice. I'd recommend it highly.

    Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

    Ok, it just came in the mail and wouldn't ya know. Compatibility issues right off the bat. I went to the website and installed every up date I could find to help but still, I cannot get this program to install on my windows vista! I sent them an inquiry about what's going on and hopefully they mail me back with a solution. Otherwise I've wasted some hard earned money. If I get a helpful solution I'll review again, but for the now I'm just pissed off.

    Toontrack EZdrummer!

    By Restrayned.com

    from Northern California

    Comments about Toontrack EZdrummer Multi Layer Drum Sampler:

    I purchased the software to replace an older drum software program that basically was a nightmare! Even though I was a little more than worried this product would be more of the same, I was VERY surprised. It loaded on my 2000 HP Athlon, with no problem and it was easy to get it up and running. I spent a little time transfering my old midi drum tracks to EZdrummer and it really sounded fantastic. Right out of the box, this product was great, but after a little tweaking of the velocity, and midi notes, along with good mixing, it really shines!! I ended up buying a few add on packs, and now I really have the music flowing! A must have for those guitarists/musicians that don't have a drummer or access to record one! Love it!
