I wanted to ask what drum VST folks mostly use? It's bee my experience that most folks have EZ drummer and maybe one or two other packages but mostly EZ, so here's a poll! smile.gif

EZ Drummer would be it, but if I want to record some really high quality beats (that sound almost as real and good as a drummer), Acoustica Beatcraft is my way to go. Its not a VST, its a standalone application, but its pretty neat! smile.gif

I had tried a couple of the freebie drum vst's but eventually went for EZDrummer. Its cool, I like it smile.gif
Im using the reaper / ezdrummer combo as well so I know that if / when I break something there's a good chance someone here will know how to fix it!

I have EZdrummer. It sounds much better than my retired Alesis drum machine. smile.gif

I mostly use EZ drummer. I was a bit tired of its sound but I found a new dimension experimenting with some new Waves plugins processors. You can note some of this improvement in my newer lessons but even more improvements would be noted in the lessons that are coming!

I have both EZD and Superior 2.0. I use Superior for rock and metal, and I use EZD for pop/folk kind of stuff. Both are fantastic pieces of software.

Well folks that pretty much settles it. I"m going to keep this link handy as this question comes up quite a bit, especially with folks new to Home Recording. The short answer is, "GET EZ DRUMMER!!!!!!!" smile.gif

I also find Ezdrummer very handy and useful!

What I have noticed in last few years is that all this popularity of that specific drums VST has made it a bit boring sounding to my ears... Its just that its a bit overused and I can recognize its character too easily. I kinda always preferred the Addictive Drums (I think they are in the same price range) for the sound - but Ez has the coolest grooves and its easiest to use.

I'm currently experimenting with more hi end drum VSTs like Battery, Superior (which I use often) and others out there.

On a side note - its amazing how this technology has evolved. Hi end drum VST + quality midi programming (especially if live drummer plays it on the electronic set!) can really replace the often expensive and complicated live drums recording.

Indeed on the EZDrummer!

Best invention since distortion.



And check out Groove Monkey for thousands more midi beats for EZDrummer to play over. That and an Akai drum pad.

I use EZdrummer for 'real' sounding drums. But I also love Stylus RMX for electronic beats, it's got some amazing grooves on it for backing tracks and the likes!

I have EZDrummer at the moment (with several of the expansion packs) and am thinking of upgrading to Superior Drummer.
