East West have announced the availability of Toontrackâ€™s EZDrummer, a multiple microphone drum sample playback engine that they tell us is designed for musicians in need of a compact, affordable, and easy to handle plug-in without compromising any sound quality or control.
Jeff Bova - Grammy winning producer/musician (Luther Vandross, Celine Dion, Meat Loaf, Iron Maiden, Blondie, R. Kelly, Nick Lachey) spoke up on behalf of the new product, â€œThe missing link for me in multitrack drum libraries has been true world class recorded drums. Add to that my favorite drum room on the planet -- Studio A at Avatar. No room brings drums to life quite like this legendary space. EzDrummer combines this with their great new interface and in so doing brings me back to creating with a new passion and energy.â€�
