EZmix is a simple (EZ), yet powerful, mixing tool that gives you access to a huge array of mix presets for the whole gamut of mixing needs. Whether you need to mix drums, vocals, guitars, bass or keyboards this is your tool.
Simply connect EZmix to a channel strip in your sequencer like you would any plug-in, pick a preset for the instrument or sound on that strip. Done. For demo purposes or in full on production EZmix will cut your studio time, speed up and enhance your creative process from the initial hook to the final track.
The first thing I have to mention about this plugin is that it is meant as a set of simple presets that you can fine tune, you don’t get a separate effects rig where you can tweak the effects individually, that’s not the point. The point of Toontrack’s EZ range of software is to give you instant access to great sounds without over-complicating the process, Compressors, Limiters etc. are not an easy thing to set correctly especially if you are new to recording. The great thing about this plugin is that you aren’t limited to just mastering effects either, there are a whole host of presets for individual instruments such as guitar and vocals as well as drum presets for kick, snare, hats etc. In my demo above I also show you that you can experiment with using presets designed for a specific instrument on a different instrument with great results.
If you are looking for something to quickly and easily add polish to a mix or you want to add such as Reverb/Delay or EQ to a channel or track this plugin is fantastic value at 59 Euro, you get a whole load of core presets and then you can easily extend these by purchasing add-on packs such as the ‘Metal Essentials‘ that I was sent for just 25 Euros.
