Designed to work with EZdrummer, EZdrummer 2 and Superior Drummer 2, it is optimized for kits including 1 kick, 1 snare, 1 tom, 1 floor tom, 2 crash cymbals, 1 ride cymbal.
As for AOR EZkeys MIDI, it is describes as a comprehensive collection of playing variations ranging all the way from big ballads and syncopated shuffles to beat-driven uptempo material. It offers (an unspecified number of) 4/4, 6/8 and 12/8 variations in straight and/or swing feel, including various structure sections (intro, verse, pre-chorus, chorus and bridge).
Whether you're looking for a virtual drummer or piano player, each of theses banks is available for €25. More details at www.toontrack.com.
