Toontrack has announced availability of the latest version of its EZdrummer drum software for Windows and Mac.

Reinventing the role a piece of drum production software can play in a songwriting context, EZdrummer 3 gives you the creative reins to a comprehensive set of easy-to-use features that allow you to create full-fledged drum tracks without ever leaving the software.

“Even though EZdrummer 3 is new from top to bottom, we have continued to build on the strengths that have made its predecessors the indisputable go-tos for songwriters around the world: ease of use, creative features and, of course, great sounds,” comments Erik Phersson, Toontrack’s Head of Software Development.

Got a riff? Let the Bandmate come up with a drum groove on the fly. Hear a rhythm in your head? Use Tap2Find and let EZdrummer 3 list its best matches. Got your groove down? Turn it into a full song using the Song Creator. The options are endless.

Of course, at the heart of the program is the all-new sound library featuring seven kits recorded by Grammy Award-winning producer/engineer/mixer Michael Ilbert (Coldplay, Adele, The Weeknd) at the world-famous Hansa Studios in Berlin, Germany. The program also includes a new and massive collection MIDI drum grooves and fills for a wide range of styles.

EZdrummer 3 features

  • Fully resizable and scalable interface.
  • Onboard grid editor, step sequencer and more.
  • Find grooves using the Bandmate or Tap2Find.
  • Seven (7) kits as well as additional snares, kicks and cymbals.
  • Mix-ready presets for a wide range of styles and sounds.
  • Comprehensive MIDI library of grooves and fills.

Priced $179 USD, EZdrummer 3 (VST3, AU, AAX and standalone) is available at the Toontrack store and from distributors PluginFox and Best Service. EZdrummer 2 users can upgrade for $99 USD.
