RF-X Reflexion Filter

RF-X Reflexion Filter
RF-X Reflexion Filter
The RF-X is an instant vocal booth for any home studio.  Unwanted room sound interfering with your recordings? With the RF-X, anyone can capture a great-sounding recording anywhere.

New materials have been developed to make the RF-X lighter than its predecessors but also to maintain its durability – helping to position RF-X as a versatile product suited for any challenging working environment. It features a four-layer acoustic filter design comprised of the outer composite panel itself, a wool fabric layer, an air gap layer and an inner acoustic foam layer.


This multi-layer design differentiates the RF-X from its competitors by filtering frequencies evenly across the whole spectrum, helping to ensuring that recordings exhibit almost zero sound coloration when using the filter.

Hip-Hop! EZX for EZ Drummer


Finale 2014 UpgradeHave EZ Drummer?  Add the new Hip-Hop! EZX to your collection.  Don't have EZ Drummer, but need good Hip Hop drums?  Get the EZ Drummer Hip Hop bundle which also includes the Jazz EZX.


As a genre, hip-hop is the true definition of creativity, relentless in its urge to reinvent. From sampling the funky grooves of the 1970s, through the age of the classic drum machines to pioneering in fusing modern-day and vintage technology, it’s been a forerunner in rejuvenating our sonic landscape. This is the foundation on which the Hip-Hop! EZX for EZdrummer 2 stands. It’s firmly rooted in authentic, acoustic drums, but mixes, matches and merges them with timeless drum machine sounds, orchestral percussion and other creative elements to form unique hybrid kits. In total, you get 22 mix-ready drum sets and hundreds of percussive pieces – all in an uncompromising fusion of organic and electronic.
