DFH EZdrummer Due Out This Month!!
dfh EZdrummer is a multi-microphone drum sampler designed for musicians and producers in need of a compact, affordable, easy to handle plug-in without compromising sound quality or control.
The visualized drums in the interface combines auditioning of sounds and drumkit construction. The extensive drag and drop midi-library (featuring 8000+ midifiles) enables users to create a great drumtrack in just a few clicks. For more advanced handling, users can control microphone bleeding and levels between drums using the internal mixer. The mixer also allows stereo and multitrack routing into the host through one single plug-in, and thanks to the second generation Toontrack Percussive Compression (TPC), system requirements are kept to a minimum.
The drums for dfh EZdrummer were recorded, produced and played with the best in the business. From our pro SUPERIOR line we’ve adopted the humanizing features that are instrumental in making our drum samplers the pinnacle in digital drum production.
With dfh EZdrummer, Toontrack have stepped into the next generation of acoustic drum-samplers.
