Toontrack announce EZplayer Pro at Frankfurt
EZplayer Pro is a much expanded version of Toontrack’s hugely popular EZplayer Free software that was released last year.
In EZplayer Pro you can collect and organize all the MIDI files on your hard drive. You can combine, put together and fuse drum and percussion MIDI clips from individual kit pieces to entire arrangements and audition them with your favourite drum sampler in EZplayer Pro before dragging them into your sequencer.
The application is organized as a multi track sequencer arranger where every track can be connected to a virtual instrument in the main sequencer and EZplayer Pro be utilized to audition different instruments in combination before you adjust them in detail.
The tracks and the sub tracks with fills and variations connected to them can also be aligned to a hardware controller such as a keyboard or percussive controller to trigger MIDI sequences live.
On top of all the new functionality the map-wrappers between different drum sampler formats (which allow users to use the MIDI from one brand of drum sampler with a sampler from another brand as a sound source on the fly) have been expanded to now encompass all common brands in the market.
EZplayer Pro will be delivered with all new MIDI content from David 'Fingers' Haynes - http://www.myspace.com/dhaynesakafingerrs and others.
EZplayer Pro will be included on disc together with Superior Drummer 2.0 as its MIDI engine but it is also available separately priced at £25/€35. Shipping is expected in late April 2008.
