Heya, ladies 'n fellers!

This isn't completely guitar-related, but I feel it's appropriate enough to ask fellow guitarists who may be in the same spot.

I've seen the Flash demo for the ToonTracks EZDrummer software, and I must say it looks very tempting. Sure, nothing beats (no pun intended) playing with other musicians and writing songs that way, but for the times when one needs to lay down drum tracks quickly while the songwriting inspiration hits, I think a drum machine software would be sweet. So, do any of you or anyone you know or anyone that anyone you know knows who may have used this have any input on it? I'm really tempted to save up the $179 (or $161.10 on Musicians Friend or Guitar Center) for it, but any user reviews would help.

Thanks!

EZDrummer is pretty good. If you have, or want, any experience with VST instruments, you'll like it. It sounds great, it's pretty easy to use... not much bad to say about it. If you want a more rock/metal sounding kit, get the Drumkit From Hell expansion for it. It's not the best drum VSTi plugin out there, but it's a damn good one. Just keep in mind that I think you'll need a host program like Reason, Sonar, or Fruity Loops to actually program the plugin.

Thanks. I actually have Pro Tools, which I know is compatible with the program. I hear Reason's pretty good too.

Anywho, thanks again.
