EZplayer Pro (http://www.toontrack.com/ezplayer_pro.asp#)is a plug-in MIDI engine that lets you collect and organize all the MIDI on your hard drive. You can combine, put together and fuse drum and percussion MIDI clips from individual kit pieces to entire arrangements and audition them with your favorite drum sampler in EZplayer Pro before dragging them into your sequencer. EZplayer Pro includes map-wrappers between different drum sampler formats. These allow you to use the MIDI from one brand of drum sampler with a sampler from another brand as a sound source on the fly. The map-wrapper encompass all common brands in the market.
EZplayer Pro is organized as a multi track arranger where every track can be connected to a virtual instrument in the main sequencer and EZplayer Pro be utilized to audition different instruments in combination before you adjust them in detail. The tracks and the sub tracks with fills and variations can also be aligned to a hardware controller such as a keyboard or percussive controller to trigger MIDI sequences live. EZplayer Pro is, together with the Toontrack Music sampler lines and Toontracks own host application Toontrack Solo, part of a modular work environment designed and developed by Toontrack Music to cater to musicians, players and producers. Now and in the future.
The MIDI for EZplayer Pro are played by David "Fingers" Haynes and Per Mikaelsson.
