PRESS EVENT AT BRITISH GROVE

In February 2014, we invited the music industry press for a private demonstration of EZdrummer 2 and all its new features. On location, where the sound libraries were recorded, at the British Grove Studios in London, England.



THE PRESETS.

EZdrummer 2 has a completely new mixer and collection of effect chain presets, both for the modern and the vintage setup. The effect engine is based around the numerous quality effects in Toontrack’s widely acclaimed EZmix 2. Each setting includes a back-end of various effect chains including the likes of compressors, reverbs, delays and EQs. With settings covering anything from classic rock to disco and modern metal, you can instantly call up a starting point for your song and, if you so choose, continue to customize it into something completely new with each setting’s unique set of parameters.

THE STUDIO SOUND.

The drums for EZdrummer 2 were recorded at one of the most meticulously built recording facilities in the world; Mark Knopfler’s British Grove Studios in London, England. Combining some of the most sought-after and rare vintage consoles, outboard effects and microphones with the best of the best in state of the art recording technology, the studio serves as a perfect combination of how old and new can come together in perfect harmony.

THE ROOM.

The main recording room at the British Grove Studios is large, ambient and perfectly crafted for drum production. The high ceiling, the dense walls and carefully designed diffusers produce a natural and sonically balanced reverb that allow the drums to be loud and present in your mix without ever taking over.

THE ENGINEER.

The sounds were recorded by a true industry great; the multi award-winning Chuck Ainlay. Having engineered in excess of 200 albums, worked with some of the world’s biggest recording artists of all time and been involved in numerous gold or multi-platinum releases, his track record speaks for itself. Some of the most notable collaborations in Chuck’s impressive career include Willie Nelson, Dixie Chicks, Dire Straits and Travis Tritt. To name a few.
