Amazing Classic Grooves!

Note: This product requires EZdrummer version 1.3 and up, EZdrummer 2, or Superior Drummer 2.3 or above.

Looking for classic grooves for your tunes? Sweetwater recommends The Classic EZX Drum Expansion Library for EZdrummer. Purpose built for one of the most popular drum programs ever made, EZdrummer, The Classic EZX puts the sound of two amazing studio drummers in your EZdrummer rig, Peter Fredlander and Chris Whitten. In addition to using some of the best Yamaha, Noble & Cooley, and Craviotto drum kits available, the crew behind The Classic EZX used a genuine Helios console, known for its incredibly dynamic sound. Even better, they used a classic 4-mic recording technique, which treats the kits as a whole as an instrument. If you want truly musical drums, you want this expansion!

Toontrack The Classic EZX Drum Expansion Library for EZdrummer Features at a Glance:
  • Two MIDI and groove libraries in one, featuring performances by Peter Fredlander and Chris Whitten
  • Produced by Peter Henderson (Paul McCartney, Rush, Frank Zappa, Jeff Beck, Tina Turner, Ringo Starr) and Chris Whitten (Edie Brickell, The Waterboys, Paul McCartney)
  • Instruments include Yamaha, Noble & Cooley, and Craviotto drum kits
  • Recorded by a top-of-the-line Helios console
No drum library quite competes with the sound of Toontrack's The Classic EZX drum expansion library for EZdrummer!

The classic

It's a "Must Have"

Simple, yet effective!

Although I have all the EZXs and SDXs, I find myself using The Classics EZX for most things I do. It doesn't have those shrill higher pitched snares you find in today's music. This EZX is the drum library you are constantly searching for when you can't find "that sound" in the other libraries. It comes in 2 configurations - 4 Mic setup and complete Mic setup... both of which bring new dimensions to your tracks. I just wish they would have made an SDX out of it!

By far the best EZX out there for acoustic drum sounds...I would even be so bold to say that these sound better than all the SDX's I have...It's REALLY nice to have a great sound ready to go without having to tweak like crazy. Killer midi patterns too.

Truly A Classic Library

Comprising superb mixer options, grooves, and drum kits, "The Classic" is probably the best EZX. This expansion offers two different micing set-ups, and it is the 4-mic component that I use most often. The 4-mic system is simple to use and mix, with a natural sound which blends seamlessly into funk, jazz, or classic rock. The snares and cymbals in particular are full of character and realism. The samples from this EZX sound great with no extra processing, and can add a professional polish to songs. The kits on offer are all unique and suited to different purposes, my favorite of which is the default Noble and Cooley. The groove library includes extensive selections from two ace drummers, Chris Whitten and Peter Fredlander, and offers 22 full song drum arrangements with each song broken into verse, chorus, bridge, and fill sections. The grooves are very useful and often weave themselves into my arrangements. One caveat: although it should be evident from the library's title, don't expect modern sounds from these drums.
