dfh EZdrummer is a multi-microphone drum sampler designed for musicians and producers in need of a compact, affordable, easy to handle plug-in without compromising sound quality or control.
The visualized drums in the interface combines auditioning of sounds and drumkit construction. The extensive drag and drop midi-library (featuring 2000+ midifiles) enables users to create a great drumtrack in just a few clicks. For more advanced handling, users can control microphone bleeding and levels between drums using the internal mixer. The mixer also allows stereo and multitrack routing into the host through one single plug-in, and thanks to the second generation Toontrack Percussive Compression (TPC), system requirements are kept to a minimum.
The drums for dfh EZD were recorded, produced and played with the best in the business. From our pro Superior line we’ve adopted a humanizing feature that is instrumental in making our drum samplers the pinnacle in digital drum production.
With dfh EZdrummer, Toontrack have stepped into the next generation of acoustic drum-samplers.

Drumkit for Hell
Expansion pack for EZdrummer...
Drumkit From Hell aka DFH, originally came about to address our own needs for better and more natural drums for the production work we were doing and decided to record and release a library of our own with the best musicians and producers available to us, our good friends Tomas Haake and Fredrik Thordendal from Meshuggah and Daniel Bergstrand from Dug-Out studios.
Little did we know what we had started. Drumkit From Hell was awarded 5 of 5 in Sound on Sound and an EQ Magazine Exceptional Quality award and launched Toontrack Music and the DFH brand in a major way into the sample business enabling the development the Superior and EZ drum samplers. To celebrate and signify the importance for us of Drumkit From Hell we´ve decided to re-release it as an EZX expansion pack for EZdrummer.
The DFH EZX contains the essence of what Toontrack is originally all about. The commitment to excellence through collaboration with the best players and producers aimed at helping you to make better, more inspired music. This version of DFH includes both the original DFH release and the Add-On pack that was released subsequently. All sounds have been re-mixed and we´ve added custom midifiles from the diabolically gifted musician and guitar player of Meshuggah, Fredrik Thordendal plus midi played by one of the other great Metal Drummers we know, Ove Lingvall from Nocturnal Rites. Metal at its best.
