Categorized as both Modern and Vintage, the various pieces may be easily mixed n’ matched for “custom” kit configurations. These new kits are samplings of DW, Yamaha, Gretsch, Sonor, Tama, and of course, Ludwig. Taking a cue from vying drum VI contenders, EZD2 now hosts great-sounding percussion components as well: tambourine, cowbell, maracas, shakers and handclaps.
EZD2 is not merely a pretty face with fancy-schmancy bells n’ whistles slapped on top – its audio engine has been completely overhauled and is now refitted with a much greater degree of AI and expressiveness. The new “Tap2Find” feature enables a user to quickly beat out a groove via a midi-controller or mouse; the software then takes off on a gallop to retrieve appropriately matched patterns.
ToonTrack have proven themselves to be leaders in their field – ease of use, audio excellence, and innovation are but a few of the ToonTrack product-line attributes. Their well-established EZ Drummer product has broken even more barriers with this ponderous, 2nd generation version. EZD2 still rings the till at a comfortable $179 for new customers, while existing supporters can upgrade for a reasonable toll fee of $99.
However, the question remains: "What can EZ Drummer 2 do for you?"
