I am a bit confused regarding what drum selections I have in S1 Artist. The packaging states there is EZDrummer Lite and some NI software. How do I activate said EZDrummer Lite or is the NI stuff the way to go?

Reading some threads, some say i can be used and some threads say it can't.... Never the less, I am looking for a quick and dirty way of putting drums down for song ideas. If any one can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

EZ Drummer is no longer part of Presonus. they just have not changed the packaging. if you run a search here on the forum you will find many instances of this being answered over and over. a year ago i was confused and asked also. understand that a lot of the the stuff like my audiobox has been out for a while and people STILL have this stuff in stock with the old info.

do a search on it here for more info or someone else will chime in to help.

Yeah, I thought so... I was look at some of the threads and thought there was a work around.

May I ask for your opinion for an option to ezdrummer that I can use in S1 Artist?

Thanks!

You can use Studio One's Impact plug-in for Drums.
There are some free Soundsets available for it on the Exchange Server.

And there are also commercial packs available.
For electronic drums take a look at the Goldbaby Add-On from PreSonus (http://www.presonus.com/products/studio-one/buy) and for acoustic drums there are some from Drumdrops:
http://www.drumdrops.com/drum-samples (see the Multi-Velocity Packs)

S1 Artist does not support 3rd party plugins, so either you upgrade to Producer or you use Impact for the drums
System: Mac i7, 16 GB ram, 2 x SSD Samsung 840 Pro 256 GB + 1 x SSD Samsung 840 Pro 512 GB + 2 X 2TB HDD (backup), OSX 10.8.4

Hardware: 2xMr816X, 2x896mk3, Ultralite, Adam A7X, CC121, MCU

Hello ,

This is something that we have addressed sometime ago. A Knowledge Base Document was put up on our website back in July of 2012.

http://support.presonus.com/entries/21786026-Toontrack-EZ-Drummer-Lite

Anyone who has submitted a support request with us from July 2012 onward, inquiring about this issue would have been sent this response informing them of the changes. It is very clear, to the point and explains that we have actually addressed this issue and unfortunate change with additional supplemented sounds.

Toontrack, the creators of EZ Drummer, no longer supply PreSonus with product keys for their software. 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.

I hope that this clarifies everything for you guys.
