    Ezdrummer 2 can’t be resized, Superior Drummer 3 hower has that option. This is because Superior Drummer 3 was built from scratch using a technology that can handle resizing, scaling, etc., which EZdrummer 2 isn’t built upon, e.g. it’s not possible for us to just add scaling/resizing into EZdrummer 2.

    Thats a bummer, really liked EZDrummer but I am not going to purchase since I cannot make it large enough to be usable. Will try superior drummer 3.

    Thanks Henrik for finally explaining what the issue is. Means I won’t be spending any money, but I’m less grumpy at the company in general. I wish people would think through the ‘help’ they give out on here – people keep linking a thread which people can’t see (I presume it’s a customers only forum?), although even when copied over it’s clearly missing information. The post refers to there being multiple lines of code but there are only about 4.

    You know what would *really* help? Including this in the FAQ. That said, making the FAQ have any information other than how to use Product Manager would be helpful…

    What! I purchased EZ Mix and had no idea that skin is not resizable. I’m sorry but in today’s big screen scene, this is unacceptable. The least you can do is have a “WARNING” statement that the skin is one size only. With my screen setup, this just does not work. Real bummer after spending the money. Toontrack, this is a big disappointment for such a great product. What were you thinking?

    100% agreed. Allowing resizing in SP3 only is simply just a scam as they are forcing people to pay twice for both. Was really excited about my purchase today but now really upset. Evening and songwriting prospects completely ruined.

    So you can come out with a whole new product in EZBass but you can’t fix the resizing in EZdrummer! I see where your priorities are. I think the real reason you have not fixed it is because you just don’t give a damn. Wake up it is 2020!

    Why not simply change your screen resolution while working in EZDrummer?
    There are even apps created for the explicit purpose of quickly changing screen resolutions.
    For what other reason would such apps be written if not to facilitate program-biased screen resolution changes?

    At the studio where I work, we utilize multiple screens and multiple screen resolutions in both of our rooms
    due to a number of applications that require specific screen resolutions.
    Some of those applications will never be updated for the current larger screen resolutions
    (or for newer operating systems). Others are requiring a paid update or maintenance contract.

    Sorry for the rant, but…feeling a little defensive for my friends at Toontrack.
    Unless you have programmed a virtual instrument standalone program (that also works as a plugin),
    maybe, just maybe you presume a lot about the amount of work that may or may not be required to (re)write one
    and what Toontrack may or may not be doing in that regard.

    What resolution changers would you recommend?

    Scott EshlemanScott Eshleman

    As I stated earlier in this thread,
    we utilize multiple screens and multiple screen resolutions
    and typically those screens are set to a resolution appropriate to the tasks done at that workstation.
    You might say, ‘Set & Forget‘ either in the operating system or the screen’s utility.
    As such, I have no personal or professional experience with any particular ‘quick-change’ app.
    I have seen them mentioned, recommended or advertised numerous places.

    screen resolution quick change Windows

    screen resolution quick change Mac

    I am sorry but that is a pretty poor defence. The explanation shows a complete lack of professionalism on the part of the developer. Superior Drummer, we are constantly told, uses the same engine as EZDrummer 2, hence upgrading is possible without any issues. So, as an IT engineer, I find this a totally inadequate response from both the developer and you. If you create a product then you should make it something that works on all platforms with all natural functions of the operating system available. It is nothing more than poor programming as Windows has allowed this function and even the most basic programs have had this ability since 95 and right through to 10. This is supposed to be a modern program that allows users to create rythms to a very high standard. Well, if that is the case then why skimp on the programming? If superior drummer can do it as an upgrade, then why can’t ezdrummer have a patch. I am afraid this is just excuses and pretty poor ones at that. The workspace is way too small. The writing is too small. The window is crowded and it is not user friendly. Why should any user have to play with settings just to (sort of) do what the developer should have done. Too lazy to do it and greedy to be bothered about fixing it. End of rant!!
