The Classic EZX is a drum library with a modern sound that combines all the advantages of modern recording techniques with the legendary sound character of a Helios recording console, a mixing console that has significantly influenced the album productions of bands such as The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Who and many others.Whether it's a slamming 70's rock song or lean and compact pop from the latest charts, the drum sounds of The Classic EZX fit perfectly into any kind of mix.The Drum Kits:The Classic EZX makes instruments from three fantastic drum manufacturers digitally available: Yamaha, Noble & Cooley and Craviotto.The Recording Mixer:The Helios console is rightly called the "Musician's Choice" recording mixer and, after nearly 40 years, is still considered one of the best-sounding mixing boards of all time.The artists:The Classic EZX was produced by Peter Henderson (Paul McCartney, Rush, Frank Zappa, Jeff Beck, Tina Turner, Ringo Starr) and Chris Whitten (Edie Brickell, The Waterboys, Paul McCartney).The microphone setup:The Classic was recorded using two different setups. One consisting of a contemporary multi-microphone configuration, the other with only four microphones, a so-called "4 Mic Setup".
