EW Pro Drummer


I appreciate people have had various problems with the PLAY engine in the past. It’s always been fine for me, however I do find the two Pro Drummer kits cause Cubase to slow down. Anyone else experience this?

They are hefty kits but the slow down is more centered around track selection and general sluggishness rather than performance spikes etc.

I have been using it’s ‘powerful system’ as well which is a hog I should point out.

Anyone got any input?

I also know Pro Drummer has had some bad press and it can sound terrible out the box, but actually I’ve found if you start turning down the various room mics, and distortion mics etc it sounds great. It also has a midi compression on by default which is a bad idea I feel.
