Toontrack, the creators of EZ Drummer no longer supply PreSonus with product keys for their software due to a change in business relationship between the two companies. Without a product key, the software cannot be activated, and therefore used. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to substitute this plugin for another comparable piece of software. In Studio One 2, there are three options for making drum backing tracks which replace the EZ Dummer Lite software:
1. Native Instruments Komplete Players (Komplete Elements in the Producer and Professional versions). The Kontakt player features realistic drum samples which can be played with varying degrees of velocity and style.
2. PreSonus Impact is a pad-style drum player which can be used to program a variety of percussion sequences, ranging from electronic, dance, and acoustic drums. Check out section 14.2 of the latest Studio One 2 Manual. You can access this by clicking Help > Contents from within Studio One.
3. Studio One Musicloops are a varied set of drum loops that can satisfy multiple genres of music. Make sure you have the Studio One Musicloops Sound Set installed; then, these loops can simply be dragged from the browser into a new audio or instrument track.
