  • any small app/host for Addictive drums?

    I have been using ezdrummer for a few months now as "stand alone" i.e. using the small ToonTrack SOLO program that you can download from the Toontrack site.

    I do not have, and do not want to buy Cubase or any other expensive sequencer just so i can play my e-drums. I never record or use synths etc so didnt see the need to buy yet another piece of software.

    What options do I have for a host - small, cheap, free, low RAM overhead, fast, you know the drill..... - that will run Addictive Drums well?

      I've been using VSTHost for about a month now, and love it. I was using Sonar 7, but found VSTHost to be so much more simple. It's free too. Though the gentleman who wrote it does except donations.

        i found a free download from Steinberg called "cubasis inwired" its only an 8mb download and it does the vsti thang so im gonna try that as well.

        Thanks for those suggestions.

          Dude, check out Cantabile, it is pretty simple and runs quickly. I used it all the time before Solo was out for Toontracks products, and I was bummed when I got my mac and couldn't find anything as good for free.

          Edrums- KD-120, PD-125 (3), PD-105 (3), Yamaha PCY155, PCY-135 (4)
          Module - Roland TD20X
          Software - Pro Tools and Toontrack Superior

            That cantabile looks well simple, just the ticket!

            so now all i need is
            TD8&TD3 outputs merged ---> chaoticbox ---> loopbe1 ---> cantabile ---> ADrums

            Don't they realise drummers just wanna hit things with sticks!
