Times are tough. Job growth is microscopic. Kirk Hammet can’t live on royalties alone. It’s starting to seem like your financials will be renting a room on dire street until the end of your days. So what little money you do have must be spent wisely, lest your meals consist of stale bread buttered with tears.
It’s in this grim dystopian future that Toontrack has released a new demo version of their still pretty damn recent EZ Drummer 2 software. For 10 days you can program drums like some high-rolling record producer, sniffing baking soda through monopoly money while you pretend to call an imaginary suck-up from your nonexistent entourage on an expired burner phone. This way, if you decide to commit to spending the $179 to own EZ Drummer 2 forever-ever, or $99 to upgrade from OG EZ Drummer, you can do so with the knowledge of one who has tasted from the bitter tree of experience, and grown wiser for it.
To try out the demo of EZ Drummer head to Toontrack’s product page. Knowledge is power, and when you default on your electric bill and the lines have been cut, it may be the only power you have left.
