The "Producer" kits are the same sampled kits in RDK2, but with added effects to make them sound different?

Yeah I guess all the companies would have their proprietary mappings so you can't interchange them. Somewhere in my internet travels, I picked up a boatload of EZ files, but they are for EZ only -- well,maybe they are for something different altogether.(!) They seemed to somewhat work in the freebie GSCW drumkit, but didn't seem as expressive as they were missing the subtle things from the weird mappings.

Life is what you make of it I suppose.
Yeah, Pete always manages to get things to sound good...
