    For you cheap bastards like myself, MOM EZX has now dropped in price. Snatched it up for 33.99 at audiodeluxe.com using code SPRING15.

    The wait is over!

    Ha, glad to help!

    Haven't had a chance to play with it yet, but I've heard great things about it.

    For those of you that have this, is there really only 4 midi "songs" or am I missing something? Most EZX's have like 10-12 included. I'm a little shocked if that is the case.

    yeah I wanna pull the trigger on this but as I am equally cheap, I don't have EZD2 yet. As far as I know this will work with SD2 won't it?

    Can I route every channel with EZ Drummer? Or do I need to buy Superior to do this?

    Yep, it does.

    re: the MIDI, it is a little sparse, but it's sort of a trade off for how awesome everything else about it is. Can't tell you how great it is to be able to manipulate the relative volume of individual mics so you don't wind up with a wooly, roomy kick. Unless you want one, anyway. The best MIDI pack so far was actually the Metal! EZX- lots of different styles, tempos, fills, blasts, carpet rolls, etc. The Dirk ones are good but it's basically the exact same three beats at 4-5 tempos.

    Your Daw should give you the option for either stereo output or multi output from EZ drummer, you don't need Superior to do this, if this is what you mean.

    Good to know, I'll pick up the Metal! then. Nice to have some well-played midi when you are in the initial stage of creating.

    Haven't had a chance to even check out the sounds yet...hope to play with it soon. I love Metal machine so if it is able to compete with that I'll be a very happy guy.

    I don't have EZ Drummer 2, but I do have Superior Drummer 2. The EZX's from EZD2 can be used in SD2, right?

    I think I remember reading that it's possible, but I wanted to make sure that I wasn't remembering a figment of my imagination.

    If I were you, I'd buy Made of Metal for the kit and just the Metal! MIDI- they sell the EZX midi packs separate from the kit as well. I'm recommending that because there's one amazing default kit in Metal! and the other ones are absolute garbage.

    I thought about that, but there isn't much difference in price between the midi and the whole package once the price drops to $39 and then you buy it at audiodeluxe.com for $33. Might as well get it just to play around with.

    thanks John. grabbed it this morning.

    one quick note for those yet to buy, don't expect a download link immediately after purchase. apparently Audiodeluxe handles all orders manually - so it took about an hour or so for me to get the email with license. after that a breeze. one other quick note, i noticed in the description for it that it required Superior Drummer 2.4.0. i was only at 2.3, so went out to my Toontrack account and grabbed the 2.4.3 update. i tend to forget Toontrack offers updates to everything you buy from time to time. i updated everything i got, including MetalMachine and related midi.
