Hi

Drum maps confuse me! I can't find a drum map for EZ Drummer 2 which will let me import midi drums from Band in a Box without drum voices being changed. My DAW is Cubase Pro 8.5

I mainly use the EZ Drummer Modern kit but a map for the Reggae kit would be very useful too.

Can anyone help please?
Andy

Don't use EZ Drummer but check if it has a GM Mode or GM kits.

Thanks Bob. EZ uses several different "pitches" for eg kick & snare etc so it doesn't always match GM. That's why (I think) I need a drum map but maybe I'm wrong. I've googled a lot for EZ maps but nothing's come up. So maybe my problem's something else...

Hmmm, I have Sampletank 3 and Jamstix and both have a few GM kits but I've never tried to convert a non GM kit to use GM. I would think it can be done, a script maybe? Many times the reason for non GM kits is how they lay out on a controller keyboard so a skilled pianist can play them quite well.

Hi Andy,

You will need EZPlayer Pro to convert GM drums to EZDrums:

https://www.toontrack.com/product/ezplayer-pro/

You can purchase it for around $40 USD.

Be sure to view the video at the above site.

I have it and it is a little difficult to use at first but once you understand it it isn't bad. Its an old program but it does work and will convert many drum maps. It can also be used to audition MIDI loops for any instrument.

Thanks guys. I have EZplayer Pro but I didn't know it did this. (Can't even remember why I had to get it in the 1st place but I've enver thought to use it since) I'm sure my problems will be fixed
Thanks again

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?
