Available for download and designed to augment the sounds already found with EZdrummer 2 or Superior Drummer 3, Toontrack Hard Rock EZX is an expansion pack comprised of samples, presets, and grooves recorded at The Warehouse in Vancouver, British Columbia. All the samples were recorded and mixed by Bob Rock, a world-renowned engineer who’s worked with Metallica, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, Michael Buble, and other artists with long and/or great hair.
The Hard Rock EZX is separated into two separate offerings: a Gretsch kit with a piercing, direct attack, and a three-ply Ludwig kit, which provides darker, more complex timbres. Additional kicks, snares, and cymbals abound, for a total of five kicks, four snares, seven toms, two hi-hats, and eight cymbals in total.
The sounds have been mixed into a selection of presets by Bob Rock for quick implementation. You’ll also note the selection of custom and MIDI drum grooves, which can be implemented in your sessions similarly to any groove pattern available within EZdrummer 2 or Superior Drummer 3. Please note, you will need a registered, purchased copy of either EZdrummer 2 or Superior Drummer 3 to utilize this expansion pack.
