  • [Video] EZDrummer 2 played via TD-12 kit on a pop/rock track



    I haven't posted here in a while, but recently I picked up a copy of EZDrummer 2 and I'm really impressed. The sounds are sooooo much better than the original EZDrummer. The sounds and playability rival Superior Drummer 2, albeit with less flexibility in mixing.

    For this video, I'm using the Modern library with the Original Kit preset. Then I changed a few kit pieces:

    Kick: 16x22" Yamaha 9000
    Snare: 6.5x14" Tama Artist Carbon Fiber, Semi-dampened
    Rack tom 1: 9x12" Gretsch USA Custom
    Rack tom 2: 9x13" Yamaha 9000
    Floor tom: 16x16" Gretsch USA Custom

    I ran the drum stereo mix through a drum bus preset from EZMix. That's all I did to the drum sound.

    I know it's been out a while, but I'm just really impressed with EZDrummer 2.

      I've been watching so many youtube vids on VSTs the past month. This is really good. The hi hat is what I'm always listening for because that seems to be the Achilles heal of many VSTs . This one sounds pretty damn good. How is when playing faster? Did you edit the midi at all? I just got SD2. I absolutely love it. There's a huge learning curve for me at least. I'm happy with it but sounds like I'd be happy with ezdrummer as well.

        Thanks for checking it out.

        For the hi-hat, I wasn't using any of the pedal correction settings that EZD2 offers. Just the stock setting. I plan on trying those out to see if it's easier to modulate the open/close feel more naturally. I had to really pay attention to the pressure of my left foot to try & achieve the amount of open/wash that I was after for various sections.

        I did edit the MIDI some, but mostly just the snare hits because I wanted that high velocity rimshot backbeat and it wasn't always triggering it correctly for me. Sometimes it was triggering the center head hit instead. And there were a few crash hits that triggered too hot, but I probably need to dial down the sensitivity on my TD-12 module for that. But not too much MIDI tweaking after the fact, no.

        I hear ya on the learning curve for SD2 vs. EZDrummer. I've been using SD2 for many years now and absolutely love it, but I was just really impressed with the sounds in EZD2. I'll probably play around with it some more and do a few more videos/recordings in different styles.

            Nice...really like the sound of those Toms.
            A little off topic I know but, I see in your sig that you are using a Roland CY-12C for your Hi Hat. Just wondering how you like it and if you find much difference between that and a CY-5? Obviously there is a difference in size, but was thinking about changing my CY-5 to something similar and was hoping for your input on it.
