I strongly feel that a custom MIDI mapping option and velocity curve feature should be added for EZDrummer 2. This is not much to ask, as all of Toontrack’s competing drum libraries sport this feature. It is a matter of workflow and play-ability and should be addressed very soon – a company as successful as Toontrack should have had this covered as soon as EZDrummer 2 released to be honest.
As an avid user of both EZDrummer 2, Superior Drummer and many other drum libraries, I implore you guys to add this simple but powerful feature to EZDrummer 2, rather than limiting the library’s scope of use-ability!
Keep it strong – Cory
not that I am saying it will not happen (I’m just a technical advisor here) but isn’t that why Superior 2 is the more advanced product and EZdrummer 2 is, well EZier?
You can always load the EZdrummer 2 EZX:s in Superior 2 and apply your Custom MIDI mapping and Velocity curves there + save those as Projects or Combined Presets.
The risk of introducing advanced features like that in the EZdrummer 2 product, is that it is either intimidating the broad EZdrummer 2 user base or seriously increasing help requests in the Support channels.

Okay, fair call about using the EZX in Superior Drummer. But I still think that adding this feature as an option will not deter the wide range of users, and it is not exactly an “advanced” feature. MIDI mapping comes as standard in nearly every drum library release to date, such as – BFD, NI Drummer, Steven Slate Drums, Drumasonic, The Grange, Zeus, Battery, Addictive Drums, etc.
I personally think it an oversight by a company that has high standards.
