    Toontrack Metalheads EZX is out today

    Pretty sweet.

    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.

    This is the next step in the evolution of Metal drum production tools.

    Not to go too off topic but those demos are interesting. You get to hear Meshuggah's songs recorded with the new axefx tone.(I know that is sort of on the Alive dvd, but it's not quite the same) Sounds bad on the older stuff, but it's a drastic improvement on the 8 string stuff.

    On another note, I'm much more impressed by the default sound that comes with Ez drummer than this expansion.

    Sounds awfully nice, only listened to the meshuggah demo's but it looks like they did their best to get rid of that distinctive EZdrummer sound.

    Might check this out.

    I'd like to hear clips of how this actually sounds?

    I to am a fan of the default kit and wonder if I'll think the same with this as I did with the dfh expansion

    I'll stick with Superior 2.0 unless I can get a drumkit I actually like the sound of (Gavin Harrison plz).

    Have you guys heard of Joe Barresi's Evil Drums Expansion? He has a solid track record as a rock/metal producer/engineer/mixer. He did Tool's 10,000 Days album. Judging by the sound samples, it may be a little better suited for rock than metal, but the sound seems to have a more natural feel to it than the Avatar kit that comes with Superior Drummer 2.

    Hm. This deflates my Superior 2.0 GAS. I don't like that super clicky thin kick, but the other was fine.

    With an EDX in EZDrummer, can you combine the kick from this kit, the snare from that kit, etc and make your own?
