Hard Rock EZX

Expansion Packs by Toontrack

Drums. By Bob Rock.

Want Bob Rock’s drum mix on your next song? Here you go.

What do you get if you take one of the world’s most noted and sought-after metal and rock producers to his choice studio, bring a handpicked selection of drums, round up the best gear and outboard money can buy and hit ‘record’? You get drums, tailored and tweaked for their proper context. Period. Welcome to the Hard Rock EZX by Bob Rock.

The Hard Rock EZX was recorded at The Warehouse in Vancouver, BC, and comes with two kits, fundamentally different in their individual tones. The custom Gretsch, with its brittle and direct attack, is ideal for use in more modern productions while the classic three-ply Ludwig, with its complex, dark and warm timbre, is the perfect choice in mixes of a more vintage and ambient nature. In addition, the EZX includes a broad selection of extra kicks, snares and cymbals, allowing you to mix, match and design your own hybrid kits as you go.

To top off, the Hard Rock EZX features a collection of mix-ready presets encompassing a wide tonal range and mix of styles. Two of the presets were personally engineered and mixed by Bob Rock himself using his own custom samples to layer, saturate and augment the already awesome power in the raw drum tones.

Want the drums on your next track to come straight from the creative mind behind the sound of Metallica, Mötley Crüe, Aerosmith and many, many more? Here you go.
