No Problem

- The software works he correctly on this configuration?

- What performance? (If quantifiable)
10% use a kit with 18 parts (see photos of my E-drum in my profile) as MAXI and latency to 4ms!

- This software + hardware is stable?
Yes, but crashes in some menus BFD2 like the hi-hat pedal!


- How long have you use it?
15 days and it's not that easy to run it well with a e-drum

- What is so special that you like most and least?
most: the allocation of sounds and their setting (once you assimilate the workings of the beast!) The variety of samples. Quality and also the over-sampling performed. The snares that can roll and strike at will! The Toms and the amount of colors they emit. Cymblales the hi-hats are excellent and super accurate.

the least: the routing on the mixer (I really need to put me there!) The setting of the hi-hat for a game on a home VH11 Rolland. Not easy to settle as much as my own attribution of the note pedal closed not 100 or 105 but at 66, about half of the race! Other concerns about charley in the closed position, the game with 2 hands (equipped with sticks of course!) Tends to mute the sound after the second shot as if I closed with the foot. I think there is a setting, but I have not yet fully understood! I am looking for

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Yes and no. Former members of EZDrummer, I waited and still waiting for the new version, released in May, I think.

- How would you rate the quality / price?

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
We'll see after purchasing Toontrack Superior Drummer 2 ...
(Added 18/12/2009): I no longer use the Superior 2!
