Toontrack launches Metal Month with Metal Machine EZX and MIDI

Toontrack Metal Machine EZX

Toontrack has announced the release of the Metal Machine EZX and Metal Machine MIDI, the first two products in the Toontrack Metal Month.

Testament, Megadeth, Arch Enemy, Exodus, Killswitch Engage and Devildriver all call the same man to lay the final hand on their albums: Britain’s Andy Sneap. This highly in-demand producer/engineer has worked on numerous Grammy® Award-nominated albums, is known worldwide for having produced some of the heaviest releases this last decade and has had an instrumental role in shaping the sound of metal music as we know it in the new millennium. Now Toontrack is proud to present the first ever drum sample library to bear his unmistakable seal; Metal Machine EZX®.

Recorded by powerhouse drummer John Tempesta (White Zombie, Testament, Helmet) in Los Angeles’ Henson Recording Studios, formerly known as the A&M Studios, the Metal Machine EZX® lacks none of the metal traits you’d expect: the thunderous bass-drums, the ferocious in-your-face snares and the toms that will cut through your mixes with a crystal clear tone to die for.

Metal Machine EZX features

  • Three kits (2 x Tama Starclassic Bubinga, Ludwig Stainless Steel) as well as a large selection of snare drums and cymbals.
  • Produced and engineered by one of the most successful and in-demand metal producers of the decade: Andy Sneap.
  • Recorded at Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles, USA.
  • Mixed at Andy Sneap’s own Backstage Studios, Derbyshire, UK.
  • Included MIDI played by John Tempesta.
Toontrack Metal Machine MIDI

Also available is Metal Machine MIDI.

Derived from the Metal Machine EZX, this massive MIDI pack takes a headfirst plunge into the archives of drummer John Tempesta’s impressive recording career. Played with killing vigor, it goes to show that John skillfully masters the trashier styles from his roots (Testament, Exodus) through to the more straight forward portion of his catalogue (White Zombie, Helmet), leading up to his more recent and more rock based endeavors (The Cult).

This all makes for a very diverse and highly useful collection of MIDI grooves and fills.

Metal Machine EZX is available to purchase for 69 EUR / $89 USD. The MIDI pack is 25 EUR / $29 USD.

Toontrack releases Americana EZX & MIDI

Toontrack Americana EZX

Toontrack has released the Americana EZX, an expansion for EZdrummer and Superior Drummer.

Toontrack wanted to capture the essence of the Americana genre; the raw, untamed and no frills sound that defined the music that rose out of rebelling the mainstream country and rock establishment in the 1990s. Where better to do this than in its very stronghold, Austin, TX, and through the guidance of seasoned engineer Mark Hallman (Carole King, Dan Fogelberg)?

Recorded in great detail at renowned The Congress House Studio, Toontrack is proud to present one of the most genre defining products in the history of the company: Americana EZX.

Americana EZX features

  • Intimate and natural sounding Fibes Maple and 1960s Ludwig kits.
  • Featuring specials like the wood hoop “snare off” snare drum, sizzle strip and Cross Crasherz FX cymbals, Zildjian sizzle ride and more.
  • Included MIDI.

The Americana EZX is available to purchase for €69 EUR / $89 USD.

Toontrack has also released Americana MIDI, the MIDI for the Americana EZX as a separate product, available to purchase for €25 EUR / $29 USD.

Toontrack releases The Classic EZX drum library

Toontrack The Classic EZX

Toontrack has announced the release of The Classic EZX, a new drum library for EZdrummer and Superior Drummer.

With The Classic EZX®, Toontrack® Music is merging the best of the past and the present to bring your music to the forefront of today.

The Classic EZX® is a contemporary sounding drum library, bringing together all that is good about modern recording techniques with the sound of a classic Helios recording console, as known to have shaped the production on albums by bands like The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Who and many others.

Be it the slamming 70s rock song or the slim and tight contemporary pop that tops the charts of today, the sounds of The Classic EZX® will sit right in any mix.

The Classic EZX features

  • The Kits – The Classic EZX® features instruments from three fantastic drum brands: Yamaha, Noble & Cooley and Craviotto.
  • The Console – The Helios has aptly been dubbed the “Musicians Choice” of recording consoles and is still after almost 40 years in existence considered one of the best sounding of all time.
  • The People – The Classic EZX® was produced by Peter Henderson (Paul McCartney, Rush, Frank Zappa, Jeff Beck, Tina Turner, Ringo Starr) and Chris Whitten (Edie Brickell, The Waterboys, Paul McCartney)
  • The Unique Mic Setup – Two interfaces and two EZXs in one! The Classic was recorded using two different setups; one contemporary multi microphone and one with only four microphones, a so called “4 mic setup”. This setup is what helped shape the unique and organic production on many big albums of the 70s – a sound that is making an evident resurgence in the music at the top of the charts of today.
  • The MIDI – The Classic EZX® comes with two extensive libraries, played by Peter Fredlander as well as Chris Whitten himself. Peters library is organized as different songs with variations of 4-8 bar building blocks. Each song also features a Jamtrack of the full song from start to finish. In Chriss library, hes laying down his patented groove by revisiting some of the greatest hits of his stunning recording and touring history.
