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.
