Popular drum sounds with contemporary programming.
With the Number 1 Hits EZX project, Toontracks sought to create a fusion between organic, electronic, high-tech and vintage drum sounds that lend themselves to production schemes of today’s number one hits. The result is a sound library that covers classic sounds but carries them into the new decade, a collection of drums that would reside perfectly in any contemporary pop, dance, house or hip hop mix.
Number 1 Hits is not only an EZX expansion for EZdrummer, it's a bonafide hit-machine in itself. Sound designer Niklas Flyckt created and oversaw the programming and arranging of this collection, and created an organic, groove-laden finished product that lends itself to the production styles in modern radio hit songs.
No wonder, Niklas has 30 years of experience recording and mixing artists like Britney Spears, Robyn, Kylie Minogue, Girls Aloud, Rachel Stevens, just to name a few, and obviously knows how to get that million dollar sound.
Number 1 Hits is a one-stop-shop for instant drum production when it comes to contemporary pop, dance, house and hip hop music. It has all the timeless Linn, TR 909, TR 808, DR 55 sounds heard in the modern production that tops the charts of today. Additionally it comes with a large collection of unique and custom designed acoustic sounds, all of which were run through Niklas Flyckt's amazing signal chain of SSL, tube vintage compressors and hard-to-find outboard gear.
