Welcome To The Superior HSC Access Page On Accessibility Training

This page contains information for purchasing the HSC sets, as well as links to Superior Drummer 2 tutorials. You may also be interested in listening to some Superior Drummer 2 comparisons with the original DFH. Feel free to use the headings on this page to quickly navigate the page.

You can purchase the sets using Pay Pal or, if you’re inside the UK then, you can send a check or, purchase the sets using electronic transfer. Use the contact details above to obtain the information required to do this. Note: if you don't have a Pay Pal account then, you can still purchase the sets through Pay Pal, by using a debit or, credit card.


Pricing

The set for the original EZ Drummer also works with EZ Drummer Lite and costs £20.00 And is a separate purchase and cannot be used on the same system where EZ Drummer 2 is installed as upgrading from EZ Drummer Lite, upgrades the installed EZ Drummer Lite installation to an EZ Drummer 2 1. The standard set for Superior Drummer 2 costs £50.00 and the Electronic set, costs £20.00. Note: the Electronic Set for Superior Drummer is on a separate page from the Superior Drummer 2 Standard set and is a separate purchase. That's because, not everyone will require that set. You can if you wish, just purchase the set for EZ Drummer then, upgrade to the Standard Superior Drummer 2 set at a later date then, add the Electronic set for Superior Drummer 2. Important note: Due to accessibility issues with the EZ Drummer Lite and EZ Drummer 2 interfaces, there won't ever be an Electronic set for EZ Drummer 2. The good news is that upgrading to the Superior Drummer 2 Standard set at a later date, won't cost you any more. Meaning that, if you purchase the EZ Drummer set, and you want to upgrade then, you just pay the difference which is £30.00. Finally, you will have to' purchase the Superior Drummer standard set before purchasing the Electronic set. That's because, the Electronic set, is an add-on to the standard set. The Electronic set is only required if you are planning on purchassing the Electronic EZX. That's because the Electronic set has 41 pads, rather than the standard 34. The sets will be E-mailed to you after you have purchased them. Note: in order to do this, you will have to type your Jaws serial number into the appropriate form. Choose the appropriate link below for the Pay Pal purchase you want to make.

Free EZ Drummer And EZ Drummer Lite

You can register EZ Drummer on the

ToonTrack website

Extremely important notes: EZDrummer 2 is not supported by this set. Also, it's only possible to change drums on the pads an alter controls in the mixer in the drum set that ships with EZDrummer and EZ Drummer Lite. This set will only give you access to EZ Drummer Lite. If you can find a boxed copy of EZ Drummer then, this set will also give you access to that. However, even then there are issues. In other words, it's not possible to access any pads and the mixer in other EZX's such as the EZX_Cocktail. This is due to pads being placed randomly on screen and the mixer being in a different position. If you want full access to all pads in EZX'S other than the EZ Drummer Pop/Rock set then, you should instead purchase Superior Drummer 2. It is possible to access the following with this set:

  • Access Sonar's Preset List,
  • Authorise EZ Drummer and other ToonTrack libraries,
  • Access the 9 pads,  where you can choose which type of kick, snare, tom cymbals etc that you want to use in your kit,

Note: if you are using this set with EZ Drummer then, EZ Drummer 1.2.1 is required when using the HSC sets. This is a free update for EZ Drummer users, and can be obtained from the:

If you are using EZ Drummer Lite then, no update is required.

Superior Drummer 2.2 Introduction

An introduction to new features in Superior Drummer 2.2.

Note: most of this is not accessible however; it's still an interesting watch. Also, the groove browser is not accessible for us in Superior Drummer 2.2 however, you can use the Loop Explorer in Sonar to achieve the same thing instead. Also, the mapping Window is currently not accessible but you can get to it with the HSC set.
