I never tried EZ drummer, but I walked into DV to buy the steignberg LM9 (I think) one day & they persuaded me to buy battery instead. I did, and although I was a few quid poorer than expected that day, it was one of the best things I ever allowed myself to be talked into. Got to grips with with it pretty much straight away.
I got Battery 3 now which is all the drum machine I could ever want.

How about Toontrack Superior 2? Any opinions on that?

Many years ago, when Battery 1 came out (we're talking 2002 here) I had a Yamaha kit sample pack for it - not sure whether it came supplied or what - and it was amazing. Really, really good. About 100mb as well!

I really like Superior 2, but iy works very differently from EZ Drummer... it works in 2 seperate parts, the drum library (which can load the S2 kit and all EZDrummer and Superior 1 kits) plus the MIDI library player that has all the drum patterns and handle mapping of the patterns to many different drum hosts including the likes of BFD.

this is a monster of a drum machine..the way you can mass up beats puts other software too shame check out the demos on the above site then buy the beasty from Spectrasonics Stylus RMX at DV247.COM i promise you wont be disapointed also theres a few sites doing free add ons for this software just check them out on google.
Another vote for RMX here. Edit Groups in RMX really take things to another level. It has 10,000 sounds and at least 200 drum kits. Great fun, and a very deep yet easily accessible product.


Here are a nice set of tutorials for RMX

Ezdrummer is very easy to use.

I'd say it partly depends on your type of music too

Go on heavy rock/death metal forums and they are not using Ezdrummer

Also, it's what you want your drums to be?

If you're just a 4/4 beat type person then no point overspending.

Best sounds are the loops in my opinion and you can get a great set from free legal downloads - but they are less flexible - but they outdo these midi drums. If you're just a beat man then they are the business, but not midi.

I use loops, drum machines and ezdrummer and session drummer. It's pretty much covered and avoids having a mad person walloping some skinned bins in the same room.

I have just bought BFD2 because I wanted a more realistic sound and I am not disappointed. I also use EZdrummer which is great if your after something simple to use, the drag and drop midi files into your host is great for building songs.
Make sure you have a couple of gig of spare memory on you machine though because BFD2 is one hungry beast.
