Good day to all!

I see this is on sale for USD$70. Anyone have experience with this? Is it really 'easy' to use? I don't need cutting edge software, I justwant to mess around on garageband with some riffs I've made up.

I’ve been using it since 2007 as a plug-in with Logic Pro. Started out with the first version and have been on the updated second version since it was released.

I create a drum track in Logic Pro, load the plug-in and import midi files of drum tracks of songs that I want to learn.

If you want to do originals, it’s real easy to drag and drop loops and fills into a drum track of your DAW.

NGG I love EZ Drummer. There is a bit of a learning curve, and it can be frustrating at times. As a teacher I think you would like this guy's videos, which cover everything you'd want to know. There's a lot of videos but you only need to watch the ones that apply to you.

Ez drummer isn’t called EZ for nothing. Definitely ez to use. You’re fortunate YouTube is in full swing. I bought EZD when it was brand new and spent many nights awake learning how to program and record.

I have it, Pretty impressive drum sounds. Personally i hate a machine play9ng with me but if i had to id use it more, you can design your own beat to the Core or use a generic beat and switch up the fills and such. I hate that you only get to download and activate it a certain amount of times though, 5 i think... which means if you upgrade your desktop amd laptop you only have one more, thay part is bs

Cheaper and equally as cool sounds in my opinion are Steve Slate drums. Similar user experience.

I love EZ drummer for cutting demos and writing. Intuitive, sounds good, pretty simple. Highly recommended.

I also dig EZ keys for the odd keyboard part, though I certainly use it a lot less.

I've been using Superior Drummer 2. The drum sounds are more detailed than in EZ Drummer IMO. I do think Superior Drummer requires more mixing than EZ to get them to sound great.

This track uses Superior Drummer. This isn't my song... I mixed it for someone else. He sent me the drum MIDI, which I dumped into SD2. I tried using EZ Drummer for this track, but SD2 sounds better to me.
