Testament, Megadeth, Arch Enemy, Exodus, Killswitch Engage and Devildriver all call the same man to lay the final hand on their albums: Britain’s Andy Sneap. This highly in demand producer/engineer has worked on numerous Grammy® Award-nominated albums, is known worldwide for having produced some of the heaviest releases this last decade and has had an instrumental role in shaping the sound of metal music as we know it in the new millennium. Now Toontrack is proud to present the first ever drum sample library to bear his unmistakable seal; Metal Machine EZX. Recorded by powerhouse drummer John Tempesta (White Zombie, Testament, Helmet) in Los Angeles’ Henson Recording Studios, formerly known as the A&M Studios, the Metal Machine EZX lacks none of the metal traits you’d expect: the thunderous bass-drums, the ferocious in-your-face snares and the toms that will cut through your mixes with a crystal clear tone to die for.
The Funkmasters EZX was recorded in Nashville’s renowned Sound Kitchen Studios and captures the legacy of two of the most innovative, inspiring and influential instrumentalists of our time. Meet the principal drummers in James Brown’s band: Clyde Stubblefield and John “Jabo” Starks. Fans and critics cite the collective era of these two drummers, who often played in tandem, as the pinnacle of funk music. Samples and looped audio of their original beats would go on to become the foundation of hip hop, their grooves gave birth to countless genres and the use of their breaks inspired innovation within the techniques of DJ-ing. This product doesn’t only unveil the audio legacy of these two remarkable artists, it captures their touch, feel and timing in a MIDI library with signature grooves, played by the masters themselves.
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 kits, 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.
