Toontrack Dark Industrial EZX (FIXED)
DARK INDUSTRIAL EZX – A BEAST-LIKE MACHINE
A massive EZX tailored for industrial rock and metal, dark electronic beats and cinematic sound design.
Inspired by anything from industrial metal to dark electronic beats and cinematic sound design, this EZX presents a fathomless fusion of warped, menacing and multi-layered textures of cutting-edge sound design. In total, more than 400 audio sources covering anything from acoustic drums and percussion to electronic drum machines, foley, ambience and effect noises are included. Using elaborate chains of effects and outboard, each individual sound was engineered, re-amped or remixed for a tangibly raw, gritty and distorted feel. With these sounds as a base, 31 mix-ready presets were created, each offering its own unique hybrid kit. Combined, the contents of this EZX will lend you a massive body of sound that melds the two worlds of acoustic and electronic into a sinister synthesis of skewed percussive go-tos for any track in need of a viscerally dark aura.
To add, the intuitively laid-out interface offers dedicated pads for subs, risers, atmosphere and more, enabling you to use this EZX as a one-stop shop for fully produced beat foundations as much as a source for special effects. Lastly, a basic collection of MIDI files composed to go with each kit preset is included. This means that you don’t only have the sounds, you also have a starting point for the groove – one you can take virtually anywhere using the framework of creative features in EZdrummer 3 or Superior Drummer 3.
Sometimes, complete darkness is the most vivid and creative color of them all. When painting blindly – void of context and contour – there are no dots to connect, lines to cross or outer bounds to shun. This is an EZX for just that: fearless audio exploration and utter experimentation.

GREAT FOR LAYERING!
While this EZX is amazing as is, it can also serve as a great resource for creating interesting percussive textures in combination with more acoustic-sounding drums. In this demo, The Rock Foundry SDX answers for all regular drums while the Dark Industrial EZX handles the top layer of gritty loops and effects. The menacing synths? Of course the Dark Industrial EKX.
THE KIT PRESETS
These audio demos show all Dark Industrial EZX kits with their accompanying MIDI grooves. The examples were recorded directly out of the EZX using the included kit presets and various amounts of automation of the preset knobs in the EZdrummer 3 mixer. No external instruments or post-processing effects other than master compression/limiter were used.
