Toontrack has introduced the Drums Toolbox EZmix Pack, a new expansion for their widely popular multi-effect mix tool EZmix 2.
The Drums Toolbox EZmix Pack features a wide variety of one-click settings specifically tailored to enhance drum recordings of any type, all designed by a dream team of engineers: Randy Staub (Metallica, Alice in Chains), Neil Dorfsman (Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan), Pelle Henricsson (Refused) and the sound design team at Toontrack.
Be it straight out of your favorite sampler, a studio multitrack recording or right off an on-stage live performance, the Drums Toolbox EZmix Pack will offer complex chains and various amounts of EQ, compression, transient shaping and tape simulation to take your drum audio to the next level. You will find inserts dedicated to each kit piece as well as aux and group bus settings for the entire drum mix. Time to make drums that rock – and pop in your mix!
Toontrack has announced the release of Rock Solid EZX, a collection of modern drums perfectly suited for anything from classic rock to modern metal.
It was recorded at the renowned Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, Canada by one of the most prolific engineers of the last two decades, Randy Staub.
Randy has worked with A-list clients back to back for the past plus 20 years, mixed groundbreaking works like Metallica’s “Black Album”, Mötley Crüe’s “Dr Feelgood” and honed the sound for artists like Nickelback, Bon Jovi and Alice in Chains. Randy is beyond just an award-winning mix engineer, he’s helped define the sound of a generation.
With its three complete kits, the extra snares, bass drums and its large collection of cymbals, it’s painfully obvious how the Rock Solid EZX is every bit as leveled, in your face and bold as its title sets it out to be. When you hear the almost unreal sonic qualities in this recording, you will know why there’s no understatement in saying that these drums add a new dimension to the word heavy. Now, let there be rock.

Toontrack has launched the Randy Staub EZmix Pack, a new collection of presets for the EZmix effect.
Having worked with A-list clients back to back for the past plus 20 years, mixed groundbreaking works like Metallica’s “Black Album” and Mötley Crüe’s “Dr. Feelgood”, shaped the sound for artists like Nickelback, Michael Bublé and Bryan Adams, Randy Staub is beyond just a mix engineer.
He’s an institution in the music production community and perhaps the most prolific engineer of the last two decades. With Staub’s profound impact on the craft of mixing and with his collected work being a virtual who’s who flip chart of the past 20 years of rock, we are needless to say extremely proud to add the man who defined the sound of a generation to the EZmix roster.

Be it guitar, bass, vocals or drums, with this pack you are one click away from assigning Randy’s effect chains to your own tracks.
