    Wondering if anyone has used it with their music and how they liked it? Our drummer from our old band is now in prison and we would rather use something like ezdrummer for our new cd we are doing.

    I use EZdrummer. Lot's of people use EZdrummer. It's probably the most popular program out there for drums aside from BFD. Expansion packs often go on sale. Right now they have them for 50% off. Get used to working with piano roll editors because the midi loops aren't perfect and doing a bit of hands on editing will always be better than just going with what they give you. Buy the expansions for the sounds, not the loops. If you have a keyboard around, you can tap out drums. Superior drummer is supposed to be better quality and it is. Better resolution samples but, my bro test drove the metal kit and it sounded horrible. DFH for EZD is so much better sounding IMHO.

    At any rate, yes, EZDrummer is a great program.

    I might just do loops for now and adjust em but ultimate goal is a electronic set for recording with it, I'm not a drummer what so ever and I've heard my friend say loops would be perfect for me. And it's so make beats so my friend and I can record tracks to then go back and find someone to out drums to for us!

    EZDrummer is really... uh, well, easy to use. Not as configurable as Superior Drums, but you can get up and going quickly with EZD.

    EZDrummer is a good start point for people who are new to recording. It has humanize features but there's no midi bank so you need to create your own midi tracks.

    Addictive drums start at the same price, you can buy ADpacks later on to get more drums sounds. You can drag well writen midi parts to your DAW. + more controls and mix features.. And yeah, It sounds better !

    (I'm not working for them btw) ;)

    The thing with advance drum samplers like Superior drummer and BFD is that you need to have mixing skills to get great sound out of them.
    Out of the box, the samples are crude and you get the sound you would with a non processed track (specially BFD). It's not mixed at all. The beauty is that you get to create your unique sound each time. The sad part is you need to work as hard as if you worked on an acoustic drum. (well recorded that is).
    To me I rather setup my Ayotte acoustic drum and record it. But if I need to put up a demo song quick, for a customer with no budget. I'll go with addictive drums (a clean kit patch)
    I don't really like EZD, I find it a bit overprocessed and a bit un-natural

    This ^^^ is a better idea than EZDrummer. Addictive Drums have great sounds, some decent loops, and you can use the pre-set sound, or turn off the internal processing and dial-in the drum sounds yourself. More configuration features than EZD, and when I bought mine a few months ago AudioDeluxe was offering the basic AD program for well under $100. I own both of them, and AD is a much better choice than EZD, IMO.
