If they had Tap-to-Find in EZ Player Pro, it might just be the perfect drum MIDI mapping tool.  That interface, though...

Agree - trying to find the beat you want in EZ drummer is definitely not EZ.

Have you made use of the dynamics tool (transfrom). You can drag the midi track into the Transform players title bar (It's a bit of a secret, even XLNs tech guy didn't now). Then alter just the velocities of the high hats, or the accents of the sixteenths.
 
I'm partly asking, because i'm interested in how AD2 handles EZ drum map when you do this. BUt also because it's a cool feature of AD2, that's not knwon abaout. The one video I recently saw, had the demonstrator drop into a midi folder, but you can just drag it straight into the player's title bar.
 
 




Dragging an EZD clip out of EZ Player onto the AD2 GUI does in fact work well and the Transform tools work great.
 
OTOH, I can't figure out how to save a transformed clip.  The only drag option appears to be from the bottom preview player, but I don't think they have been transformed from there.  Maybe they have ... still dinking around with it.
 
UPDATE:  Works great!!
 
1.  Use EZPlayer to select/preview EZD MIDI with AD2 kit.
2.  Drag from EZ Player to AD2.  Preview/tweak via Transform
3.  Drag from AD2 to AD2 MIDI track, not EZ Player
 
Very cool!

Yeah, the saving is a bit a mess, but you can drag it back out to the track, and it keeps the edits. It's easier to ee when the original midi has equal velocities, and is dragged in and transormed, and dragged back out.
 
Also you can mute the drum type in transform.  Makes an easy way to mute every but the hats, drg them out to a track, then mute the hats and unmute the snares and drag them out to anoth track. Easy way to split the midi by instrument type.

I emailed XLN tech about naming the rhythms that I dragged into the player. I was told that what I was doing wasn't ossible, you can't drag midi intoit's player. When I replied that I was, he came back and apologiesed. Seems I was using a function that not all the tech support were aware of, his colleague had updated him . He said you can't name the rhythm, but you can do this.
1. Click the [?] button in the top right of Addictive Drums 2, then go to "Open External MIDI folder"
2. Drag a drum midi region from Sonar, or from Addictive Drums 2, directly to the "External MIDI Files" folder. A midi file should be created there.
3. Rename the midi file with the midi naming conventions
4. Go to the [?] menu and click "Refresh Library".
5. Now your beat should show up with categories, tempo etc. tags
 
Never bothered, when you should just be able to save it as its in the player already.

Yeah, I did the External MIDI Folder thing.  Too much trouble ;)
 
OTOH, tweaking via transform and dragging to a track is good enough for me.  If I built a library of tweaks I'd just end up using the same ones over and over.
