Toontrack releases EZplayer Pro and updates Toontrack Solo
By Jim Dalrymple
After introducing it in March, Toontrack music on Wednesday released EZplayer Pro, a new plug-in MIDI engine designed for working with drum looks.
EZplayer Pro lets you collect and organize all the MIDI on your hard drive. You can combine, put together and fuse drum and percussion MIDI clips from individual kit pieces to entire arrangements and audition them with your favorite drum sampler in EZplayer Pro before dragging them into your sequencer.
Typically, using drum sample formats from one product together with another is difficult, if not impossible, but EZPlayer has made the process easier. Using map-wrappers, EZPlayer Pro can map the samples from all of the common brands in the market, according to Toontrack.
Toontrack Solo has also been updated. The purpose of Toontrack Solo is to provide a standalone environment for EZdrummer or Superior Drummer samples. The new version of Toontrack solo has improved support for Yamaha drum modules and Roland Virtual Hats.
Toontrack Solo is a free download and EZplayer Pro costs $49.
