EZDrummer isnt for everyone, but it is a pretty cool product. Depends on what you want/expect.
I use several methods for creating drum tracks, depending on my mood or what I am trying to do. Mixcraft Studio drums works well and has some good sounds. I sometimes use quality loops, several of which have in addition to conventional loops, single hit samples of various drum hits.
I also have EZDrummer and can tell you it has a lot of potential used in multiple ways. The midi sequence librarys are pretty good, but I dont consider that to be the biggest strength. For me, the biggest benefit is using it as a multi track drum instrument.
The samples are good and you can get a lot of variety. Very natural acoustic sounds are what I am after, and I like these!
If I was a better drummer, or even understood drumming better I could probably figure out how to do amazing things with it. Allow a little time to learn the program, there is a minor learning curve.
One point I would make is that the purchase of EZDrummer alone might not quite fill your needs, and some additional style packs might really be mandatory to get the most out of the program. That is because the add on packs not only add more sequences, but more drum sample varieties, giving you a broader potential pallet of sounds. It really depends on your tastes and desired styles.
Some of the packs have some heavily processed sounds, I found the Nashville pack to be too "wet" for my tastes and I have no interest at the moment in the way over the top metal stuff, but thats just me.
The Classic EZX has a bunch of additional sounds and sequences. I also have the Americana, Blues, and others. I like having stuff like brushes, and even the suitcase kick in the blues pack for jug-band/low-fi projects!
One feature I have yet to figure out is the personal library of midi sequences. I just havent had time yet, but it looks like a great feature as well.
Oh, and if you are looking into this, good news!
