I'm often told that ToonTrack make the best drum sampled instruments, but this is the first time I've had the opportunity to check them out. The new Superior Drummer 2.0 engine is due to be released next week and so this was an early demo of the final version. With all the usual mic mixing and effects built in to the mixer engine, MIDI sequencing and song building, to my ears it had great realism (as much as one can hear in this environment). The result of 4 years sampling at some of the top New York studios with world class drummer Nir Z (Genesis, Joss Stone, John Mayer etc etc), it has a lot of detail and hit variations for each velocity level - this makes it sound much less uniform and pretty realistic. Check it for yourselves... Pricing £166 out on 24th June.

    Just a quick correction, the RRP for Superior Drummer is £189 not £166.

    Even in the exhibit hall you can tell it sounds amazing. I truly believe this is going to revolutionize the way we record.

    In case I dont get the chance in the NAMM madness, it's Mattias Eklund - sorry about that Mattias!

    I love my EZ Drummer. 2.0 looks amazing. Nir, you're my drum hero! All the best.
