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.

The Classic EZX is now available to purchase for 69 EUR / $89 USD.

Toontrack Metalheads EZX, new drum library for EZdrummer & Superior Drummer

Toontrack Metalheads EZX

Toontrack has released the Metalheads EZX, the next step in the evolution of Metal drum production tools.

Over a decade ago, we introduced you to the Drumkit From Hell, or “DFH” as it is affectionately known to musicians and producers around the world. This masterfully recorded, multi sampled drum instrument has since then become the industry standard in drum production tools for metal artists all across the globe. So, we decided it was time to head back into the depths hell and see what other drum kits we could find. Just as we suspected, hell indeed had yet another rhythmic beast waiting or us to unleash upon the metal music production world – only this beast is two-headed!

One world-renowned drummer, Tomas Haake, member of the extreme metal band Meshuggah.

One in demand producer, Daniel Bergstrand, whose mixing and producing credits include the likes of In Flames, Strapping Young Lad, Soilwork and Meshuggah, just to name a few.

Two incredible drum sets, assembled and recorded to metal perfection, ready to bring your metal productions to the next level. And, for the first time in Toontrack history, we’ve included Separate mix channels in the EZdrummer mixer, containing kick and snare drum samples designed by Daniel Bergstrand, that augment these already amazingly recorded drums.

Twelve classic Meshuggah songs, captured flawlessly via MIDI by Tomas Haake himself, organized both as full songs as well as song parts so you can customize, dissect and use his grooves and drumming brilliance to inspire or create your next grand metal composition.

Metalheads EZX for EZdrummer 1.2.0 and Superior Drummer 2.1 or above is available to purchase for 69 EUR.
