    Alright I believe all Toontrack users already seen the video. We take it back to the roots in a Savage rythm and then that pic of that creature. Any ideas of what to expect? I hope not another Tomas Haake drums EZ or SDX.

    I don't know what to expect but I'm lurking on the Post-Rock EZX!

    I didn't know what to make of the video. It is definitely interesting. It looks like some sort of 70's drum EZX in the name of Sabbath or Deep Purple with Midi available in the same vain. The Guitar Gods 4 EZMix looks like it will feature Gus G, but I couldn't figure out the other guys. There also appears to be a Bass EZMix, which will be fucking killer. The last thing looks to be either an EZKeys Halloween/spooky thing or a black metal/death metal/grindcore EZMix or EZX.

    I'm calling:

    - '70s prog drums, the sample sounds like Rush.

    - The weird picture one... I don't know Tool very well, but it sounds like Tool to me.

    - No idea about the guitar pack.

    - A metal Bass EZMix

    - Definitely an EZKeys pack for the last one, either haunted house organs or black metal keys. Or both, really.

    I think the painting is from Mario Duplantier. I'm thinking they meant "sauvage" in the video. Maybe a Gojira midi pack?

    Looks like Wes Hauch is one of the gods too.

    Wow....The Big Rock Drums EZX sounds killer. Awesome work from Michael Miley of Rival Sons. This is a great way to start off Metal Month \m/

    The Opeth song with the EZX instead of the real drums, sounds awful. Is it supposed to sound like a muddy mess? Not impressed. Will wait for others who buy it to hear their feedback.

    I agree. Their recent EZX packs have been lackluster. I did like Southern Soul, however.

    Looks like the Toontrack dudes also had a merchandise re-structuring midway through rolling it out too. That initial video suggests that the Big Rock drums are part of metal month, yet now it's under the Rocktober theme. Okay, so what's coming for our month then? I don't mean to be so pedantic about it, but it seems like it might end up being a bit misleading.

    Still holding out for some Gojira midi though (the video hints at it).

    It's obviously not for modern metal or fast double runs. It's more of a vintage hard rock kit. Doesn't mean it's poor sounding. I think it sounds great.

    I'm with ~BURNY~ It sounds great, but it is vintage flavored. Huge, huge kick and snare though. The Mayer Brothers and Ludwig sets are fucking awesome \m/

    I thought it sounded amazing but I definitely wouldn't be using that on anything heavy

    Compared to their other vintage rock EZX's like Seventies Rock and Southern Soul, it sounds inferior. IMHO, the kicks have way too much muddy content in the 100 to 200Hz, the room tone is wonky, and they're uninspiring. Hell, even Post Rock and Progressive EZX sound better than Big Rock for 70's type vintage rock. You guys go ahead. This one's not for me. I'll stick with what I have.

    Toontrack and Gear Gods are running a contest where you jam to Mario Duplantier's drum track and the winner gets a whole bunch of gear. Here's mine. What do you think?

    You may regret asking that question after reading what I'm about to type.

    You're guitar tones are shrill and straight up annoying. And those note bends sound out of tune. I'd delete the track and submit a different version because you aren't going to win anything with that mix and playing. #SorryNotSorry :whistle:
