EZX Dream Pop is a very welcome addition to my growing EZ Drummer library. I love the close mic sounds of the acoustic kits. The dry and upfront acoustic samples blend seamlessly with the electronic hits. Dream Pop doesn't feature drum "overhead" or "room" channels commonly found in drum VIs - instead, the internal mixer of EZ Drummer provides alternative ambient processes in the forms of reverbs and delays. In short EZX Dream Pop performs like a dry 70's kit with an 80's vibe and sparkle.
