carrying on with the MIDI drum concept


Recommended Posts

Okay, I admit it.... I allowed myself to get carried along on a sea of people who were all gung-oh about Toontraks EZDrummer. I bought it, and installed it, and checked to see that it worked, then promptly forgot about it for a year or so.

 

Long sad story short, I tried to use it, it said I was not authorized to do so, their support sucks (well, doesn't exist) so I'm trashing it and looking for a replacement. Who is using what in drum software, and what do you like about it?

Go to http://www.toontrack.com Go to Support/Authorize (assuming you're logged in). You can manage your authorizations from there.

I did all of that. Two things:

1. the reauthorization umber did not work.

2. what caused it to decide that I wasn't authorized to start with? Right now I had just intended to fool around with some MIDI percussion, but you know how these things are...sooner or later they would wind up on a client project. And then, when the software decides again that I'm 'not authorized', and i can't get authorized, what do I tell my client? It is simply not worth the possible disaster.

 

Has to be the most unfriendly and convoluted support website I have ever been to, and I rate 'support' as an incredibly high priority with any piece of audio gear. If I cannot rely upon the software, I HAVE to be able to count on the support. Which of course, begs the question... why would I put my reputation on the line by using software that is unstable?

I use Acid & Stylus RMX, and for embellishments, Battery.

I used to program all my drums using an Alesis D4, but the ease in getting the groove down that Acid & Stylus provide can't be 'beat'. When Acid & Stylus are Rewired together, it's simply monstrous.
