Toontrack Releases 'Drums of Destruction EZX' by Josh Wilbur and Chris Adler
Toontrack recently released the 'Drums of Destruction EZX,' an expansion for EZdrummer 2 and Superior Drummer 3. Featuring two kits, three kicks and five snares, it was produced by Grammy Award-winning engineer Josh Wilbur with legendary Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler at Hybrid Studios in Santa Ana.
A description of the new expansion on Toontrack's product site reads: "The 'Drums of Destruction EZX' comes with two full kits, one of which is Chris' personal Mapex set while the other is a Pearl Reference kit that was handpicked by Josh and used on several of his productions. In addition, it includes five snares, one extra kick as well as Chris' trademark abundance of cymbals. It was recorded through an SSL4064G+, various chains of analogue outboard and captured with carefully selected microphones at Josh's studio of choice, Hybrid Studios in Orange Country, CA. With its perfectly treated one-thousand-square-foot live room, it has proved time and time again in countless sessions to be an ideal location for ambient but still tight and defined drums that have a transparent character."
A behind-the-scenes video filmed at Hybrid Studios titled "'Drums of Destruction EZX' - The making of" was released on November 1, and features commentary from both Wilbur and Adler. The video is linked below:
