Toontrack has just released the first new expansion for its new EZdrummer 3 virtual instrument. While all previously released EZXs work in EZdrummer 3, Big Stage EZX the first title developed uniquely for the new format.

Recorded at the classic Gothenburg theater Stora Teatern and engineered by Jakob Herrmann at Top Floor Studios, the new EZX includes 4 complete kits, handpicked for maximum versatility.

The Big Stage EZX is an expansion for EZdrummer 3 captured in arguably the most unique and iconic setting in Toontrack EZX history: an empty stage facing a massive mid-1800s theater auditorium. Masterfully recorded by engineer/producer/mixer Jakob Herrmann and designed to provide the broadest possible sonic palette, it features four contrasting kits as well as ambience microphones positioned on the far ends of the stage, the balconies and other key positions in the breathtaking room of the theater.

Regardless of whether you’re looking to write a massive rock track, an ambient pop song or if you’re simply after a massive collection of genre-neutral drums with an audio-visual scope beyond the convention, this EZX is your new go-to. Ready to write some songs? The stage is yours.

Priced $89 USD / 79 EUR, Big Stage EZX features a set of concert toms as well as several extra kicks, snares and cymbals. The library includes mix-ready presets for a wide range of microphone setup variations and styles, and a collection of unique MIDI grooves and fills tailored for the kits.

The EXZ is available at the Toontrack store and from distributor Best Service.
