Superior Drummer 2.0 makes drumming easy
Recording drums is not as easy as recording guitars, bass and vocals. Thankfully, Toontrack released EZ Drummer about one and a half years ago. It proved to be great software, especially because of its ease of use and the preprogrammed MIDI drum grooves that allow users to nail a certain drumgroove quick and easy to their harddisk.
EZ Drummer sounds kinda ok, but the new Superior Drummer 2.0 is much better, while retaining EZ Drummers user friendliness. The interface is basically the same, but has much more options. Individual drumsamples can be tweaked into every detail and the mixer has much more options. High quality built in FX and multiple mic positions allow for much more detailed mixing. If you like you can go from Jazz to Metal in a matter of seconds.
Recently I heard recordings that had been done with Superior 2.0 first, but had been recorded later with a real drummer. Obviously there were differences, but they had more to do with the real drums having more life to them whereas Superior was a bit on the clinical side of things. Toying with the humanize parameter made those differences even smaller.
For only 249 Euros you can buy yourself a software sessiondrummer that sounds very good. The sounds and the ability of making a real, breathing and living drumgroove in a variety of styles make Superior 2.0 one of the best software drumtools on the market today!
easy to use, fantastic sounds, preprogrammed MIDI grooves, flexibel and economically priced
