Must Have!

I bought this for my Superior Drummer software, and I am very happy with it. The default drum kit sounds awesome on it's own for a good Heavy Metal sound. Highly recommend this one!

Metal EZX

I listened to many paks for metal, this one is simply awesome, thunderous really. I like all of the options I have and you can see my Ezdrummer2 posting. I am VERY happy with this selection and how it works, so many options to pick from, still learning. If you want something that sounds real, this is it. Metal EZX is simply a pulsating drum attack for your metal recording creations. I love it. Period.

Metal EZX Rocks

I use this inside Superior Drummer and I love it!!! It's easy (hence EZX) to get ideas down quickly using the included midi files. Most of the time I lay down a guitar part and then find a midi file that fits it. The sounds are great right from the get-go and are a great alternative to the SDX options in Superior Drummer.
5/5

Absolutely essential for ANY genre of modern rock!

I write rock/hard rock/pop punk/post hardcore and realized right away the stock kits in EZdrummer 2 were woefully inadequate Reluctantly, I got the Rock Solid EZX, hoping to find some more usable sounds & was very underwhelmed, so much so I almost gave up on the entire program. The kicks were still way too dark, boomy, & vintage sounding to even cut thru the mix, let alone sound genre appropriate. I wish I'd looked at the Metal EZX first but hindsight is always 20/20. The very first thing I noticed is it was about 1.24 Gb of content, as opposed to the Rock Solid pack which was well under a gig so that was a good sign. Once I got to try out the different kits & individual instruments, DAAAANNNG. The different kicks are PERFECT! The snares & toms, also very, very good. The cymbals are a bit too dark so I swapped them out in favor of brighter ones from my library. Now, my kick & snare sit nicely in the mix & they sound very much like they belong there. Like me, you may also be thinking 'metal' drums aren't for you if you're not actually recording 'metal' music but I can say with the utmost confidence, these sounds are ideal for rock, hard rock, punk, hardcore, djent, thrash, whatever version of modern rock you can possibly imagine. Perhaps most surprising of all, I found the loops to be extremely useful as well! This was a huge relief for me because I really wanted to be able to utilize them but found nothing interesting until I got the Metal pack. WOW!! Right away, I was able to find a TON of content that actually matched the stuff I had in my head. I thought I'd never use loops at all before now but I had an entire song's worth of drum loops strung together in less than an hour with pretty minimal tweaking. Did I mention there's a LOT of loop content?? Well, there is! Compared to the stock library & the other EZX I purchased, the amount of & variations of loops included in the Metal pack is just amazing. It ranges from basic, to groove-heavy, to complex, to blast beats with a very impressive amount of fills. I finally feel like I'm getting some real results from EZdrummer 2 now & I'm excited. Makes it that much more difficult to have to do other things besides record music now.

Totally kicks butt!

Since upgrading to EZD2 i guess i'm biased.....but seriously folks,if you can't grind out an absolutely killer heavy drum sound/groove from this library.....well,you should probably go and work in a library and forget music. Sounds,performances....so many options,can't ask for anything else. Toontrack= nailed it.
