After you install EZDrummer, you have to tell Sonar where to find it before you can use EZDrummer. This tutorial explains how to set up EZDrummer as a VST Plugin in Sonar.
First, open the Options > Global menu in Sonar.
Open the Global Configuration
Navigate to the VST Plug-ins Tab.
Choose the VST Plug-ins Tab
Click the “Add” button to add a VST Scan Folder. The default installation folder for the EZDrummer plugin is C:\Program Files\VstPlugins. Select that folder in the dialog box and click OK. (If for some reason, EZDrummer is not installed in the default location, you can search your hard drive for ezdrummer.dll).
Find the folder where EZDrummer is installed
You should now see a new addition in the VST Scan Folder(s) box – the location you just selected.
The VST Scan Folder(s) box now shows the location you selected.
Click OK. Now you must exit Sonar and start it again. When you restart it, you should be able to add EZDrummer to your projects from the Insert > Soft Synths menu.
After EZ Drummer loads its samples, you should be ready to go. Next, you might want to consider Making an EZDrummer Template for Sonar.8 comments
