The Rock Solid EZX features a collection of modern drums perfectly suited for anything from classic rock to modern metal. It was recorded at the renowned Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, Canada by one of the most prolific engineers of the last two decades, Randy Staub. Randy has worked with A-list clients back to back for the past plus 20 years, mixed groundbreaking works like Metallica's "Black Album", Mštley CrŸe's "Dr Feelgood" and honed the sound for artists like Nickelback, Bon Jovi and Alice in Chains. Randy is beyond just an award-winning mix engineer, he's helped define the sound of a generation.
With its three complete kits, the extra snares, bass drums and its large collection of cymbals, it's painfully obvious how the Rock Solid EZX is every bit as leveled, in your face and bold as its title sets it out to be. When you hear the almost unreal sonic qualities in this recording, you will know why there's no understatement in saying that these drums add a new dimension to the word heavy. Now, let there be rock.

The major downside for me are the grooves, they are laid out in song format (which I CANNNOT STAND!) but they seem useable if you’re willing to cut sections from the grooves to make your own songs. This is my constant beef with Toontrack, they nailed it with the groove patterns on DFH, but they keep using the song format. I’m sure if you just want to use the song format to put quick ideas down, or if you’re using an electronic kit it’d be great, but if you’re trying to create your own original pieces of work, then it makes it more difficult than it needs to be.
So far, I’m really impressed with the sounds. I’m not sure how much I’ll use them because I prefer things to be a little dirtier, but I think I’ll use some of the tom work, and build up patterns. Way better than having to create them myself. The snare sounds are great and there’s enough room to find a snare to fit just about anything heavy. All the kick drums sound great, not a bad one in the bunch. The china’s are a little weak, but you can just turn them off. There’s another cymbal that wasn’t my favorite, but I just selected another. Overall, great sounds but still not as good as my standard for almost all my music, DFH.
One other beef: If you go to the Toontrack website and listen to the samples, there a few songs for this kit that feature double kick, which is most likely played with an electronic kit using MIDI. But it’s misleading to most people who are just checking these kits out, and they buy it, thinking they’re getting one thing, and getting something else. The samples sound should just be what you get in the package, or at least have some kind of notice letting people know that they aren’t getting those grooves.
Regardless of my disdain for ToonTracks customer service and product history retention;
kudos to ToonTrack and "Rock Solid" I've waited a long time for this cymbal set alone.
