Questions on using Ezdrummer 2 as a VST on Cubase
I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction on this. I have Cubase version 5 (32 bit version) and am looking for a drum program. My friend has lent me a laptop with Cubase and EZ Drummer 2, and I have been playing around with that, with a view to maybe getting it myself. I wonder if anyone knows of any FAQ or video tutorial on how to use a Cubase / Ez Drummer 2 setup? I found a video on Youtube featuring Cubase and the original EZ Drummer, but that version looks quite different and the video did not have what I wanted anyway.
I like the song builder function in Ez Drummer, and the fact that you can tap to find a midi section that is near to what you like, but it is annoying that it does not allow for MIDI editing as my tapped sections are usually way off (as well as my less than precision timing, there seems to be quite a lag when tapping whether using the mouse or a MIDI keyboard, and this is true whether I use EZ Drummer standalone or within Cubase). Although I can drag the section from EzDrummer into Cubase to edit individual beats that I have tapped, this is nearly useless as it won?t let me drag the edited section back into EZ Drummer to find a match or use the song builder. Is there any way of accomplishing this, without going through some laborious export / import process? Someone suggested I look at Superior Drummer instead, but that is too expensive and more than I need, and the console does not look as friendly.
While I am on the subject is there anything I can do to sort the lag issue?
Hope someone can advise. Thanks
