    Personally I couldn't care less because i don't really need new samples atm. But I think it's kinda annoying, if you bought Rock Solid last year (like I did) just so you'd have to pay for the same samples (but raw of course) again one year later. But I can understand the business perspective of course so we'll just have to move on I guess. ;)

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Can anyone give me an idea of the CPU load comparison between EZmix 2, and POD Farm. just running a basic rhythm chain?

    Btw all the Metal relevant EZXs seem to be €29.00 at Thomann right now. Wasn't everyone raving about the Sneap one? Maybe I do need new samples after all. :D

    Never wanted them since I (unfortunately by GAS) bought rock solid EZX.
    Maybe next year we could see some Metal Machine SDX

    i usually buy them from audio deluxe, pretty much always a great deal on something there.

    the sdx sounds kind of cool, I'm not in a hurry to buy it with what I already have. pretty nuts that there are now libraries by CLA, terry date and randy staub and people still moan. you don't have to buy it if you dont want to. I'd actually kind of like something quirkier like indie folk SDX or C&V 2 or something. dry sounds, weirder drums. some 60's and soul drum loops would be great, don't think toontrack have really delved into that yet. think they have way more scope with indie genres still to explore.

    They did the worst thing by putting the James LaBrie song up on the sdx's main page. You can clearly hear that the drums are weak when you compare it with the original song.

    Metal! is definitely more useful than Rock Warehouse from what I can tell (not that RW is that bad, it's just not impressive).
    I presume it's Mark Lewis kit in you example. Sounds a bit more polished than Metal Machine.
    I've made some cool hybrid kits with Sneap's Toms/cymbals and Mark Lewis Kicks and Snares.

    A good question. Who will be the first co to answer that? If they dare.

    For anyone interested... I literally just checked out the Metal! EZX after getting it cheap on sale for maybe 5 minutes. I was immediately shocked at how horrible the hi hat sounded on the default kit, (Mark's). The hi hat is one of the worst sounding samples I've ever heard. I switched between Metal Machine and back again and it was the difference between night and day how much better MM sounds to me. I kinda wish I didn't buy it but the midi is hopefully worth the price I payed alone.

    Really disappointed in the majority of the drum sounds in this EZX.
