DKFH is an EZD plug in. EZD cannot handle time signature changes.
ToonTrack blames MIDI for that. Well, first toontrack tried instructing me on how to get EZD to follow time signature changes:
Please use Follow Host at the bottom of EZD2 so EZD2 can follow tempo and time signature changes in your Logic session.
After many weeks of extremely friendly and futile support messages, they concluded with:
The samples in EZD2 will trigger correctly based off the MIDI in Logic (with the tempo and meter changes), but the meter changes cannot be followed or displayed by the EZD2 software inserted in the session. Follow Host is designed for the MIDI in EZD2 to follow the tempo in the DAW during playback.
They wrote “cannot be followed” but is that correct?
If it is impossible, then no software will be able to do it. However, they also wrote that the samples in EZD2 will trigger correctly based off the MIDI in Logic (with the tempo and meter changes) during playback.
But actually, that’s false; EZD does not follow meter changes during playback regardless of the state of the “follow host” button. EZD seems to ignore meter change data from the host.
So I tried to recruit Jim to play drums on the tune. But Jim is always busy. So now I don’t know what to do.
As much as I wanted to get this done, it looks like it will not happen. And I have just accepted a job offer. I’m really not happy about having to do that.
