Product Description

The Toontrack DFH EZ Drummer is a multi-microphone drum sampler designed for musicians and producers in need of a compact, affordable, easy to handle plug-in without compromising sound quality or control. The visualized drums in the interface combine auditioning of sounds and drumkit construction. The extensive drag and drop midi-library (featuring 8000+ midifiles) enables users to create a great drumtrack in just a few clicks. For more advanced handling, users can control microphone bleeding and levels between drums using the internal mixer.

The mixer also allows stereo and multitrack routing into the host through one single plug-in, and thanks to the second generation Toontrack Percussive Compression (TPC), system requirements are kept to a minimum.

The drums for DFH EZ Drummer were recorded, produced and played with the best in the business. From Toontrack's pro Superior line they've adopted the humanizing features that are instrumental in making their drum samplers the pinnacle in digital drum production.

With DFH EZ Drummer, Toontrack have stepped into the next generation of acoustic drum-samplers. You're welcome to follow!

Features:

- 7000 sound files at 16-bit / 44.1kHz equivalent to 5Gb of uncompressed wav files.
- Instant access to more than 8000 midi drum patterns with prelistening, quick browsing and drag'n'drop functionality.
- Same extensive layer depth on all drums and cymbals as in EZdrummers big brother - dfh Superior.
- dfh EZD ranges from entry level usability to pro handling
- Features multiple microphone control
- TPC II reduces system requirements to a minimum
- Operates in General MIDI
- Internal mixer allows stereo and multitrack routing into the host through one single plug in
- Preset mix modes for quick sound changes
- Interface visualizes the drums loaded and combines auditioning and kit construction
- Drums recorded at Avatar Studios, New York by world-class drummers and producers
- The humanizer function combines drum hit randomizing and non-cycling
- Velocity sweep allows instant changes to Midi data, extending groove context relevance.
- Possibilities for the user to add their own midi files to the library

Recording Notes From Toontrack Music

"In 2005 Toontrack Music was contacted by Pat Thrall with a request to record drums for the Superior Drummer software engine at the New York studio where Pat had his professional home at the time. They all knew Pat's work (with Glenn Hughes, Black Crowes etc) and jumped at the opportunity to work with one of their heroes. Matters weren't made worse by the fact that Pat introduced another long time hero of theirs to add his talents, passion and experience to the recordings, Neil Dorfsman. Neil has been around since the 70s recording and producing artists like, Kiss (oh the stories...), Bruce Springsteen, Dire Straits, Sting etc. Enough said?

Pat also brought along renowned live and session drummer Nir Z whose credits include such diverse acts as Genesis and Joss Stone to play his GMS drums for the sessions.

The team was finalized with Mattias Eklund and Henrik Kjellberg from Toontrack Music and together they conducted a number of recordings during 2005. The sounds for EZdrummer were recorded and produced at Avatar Studios New York (formerly known as Power Station) on the 1st of October 2005 by Pat Thrall, Neil Dorfsman and Nir Z. Needless to say the recordings ended up every bit as great (and better) as expected. The timeless quality of the sound, the consistency of the playing and recording and the legendary atmosphere from a studio that has seen many of the greats create their masterpieces within its walls all make for a worthy start of the next generation of Toontrack Acoustic Drumsamplers."

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (12 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "EZ"
Sound: Drum samples sound great for rock or hardcore style music. Great for someone who likes heavy music but hates clicky bass drum sounds Feature: Includes a lot of great drum samples and a few different sounds for each drum. would be better if it included a china and more cymbal options would be nice. You can only have 3 cymbals at a time Ease of Use: Once you figure out how to open it in your DAW its very easy to use Quality: It comes in a box and it cant really be taken on the road so quality is pretty good. Drum sample Quality is great Value: Its great for the amount of money you spend. could use more sounds though Manufacturer Support: Havent had to call them Overall: Its a great product for someone who writes music and wants to lay down a demo
Style of Music: Rock, Hardcore, Blues

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Solid product, probably worth the low price - look for the next generation, though. ('superior drummer' or something)"
Sound: I could listen to the snare for hours. It doesn't compare to BFD, but neither does the price. It fits well in the mix pretty well without much trouble Feature: The MIDI patterns are nice, mostly, but it can be hard to get variety (or find variety; see below) Ease of Use: They claim the interface is the best - but who cares about the picture of a drumset? I would have rather had an interface that made it easy to find new MIDI patterns so I'm not searching in the dark for a loop. Quality: It takes a while to load the samples compared to other samplers I have; I don't really know why. Value: It is a low priced drum program with solid MIDI patterns and a good sound. Steinberg Virtual Drummer and BFD are better, probably, but also more $. Overall: Good for what it is - but it doesn't inspire quite the way some virtual instruments have for me.
Style of Music: Rock, Pop

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
