Submission for the competition starts today and will run through the better part of July. The voting phase will commence in late July and the competition will conclude in September.

“There is an incredible amount of unheard talent out there and we hope this competition will help shine some light on not only the craft of songwriting but give voice and inspiration to aspiring, creative people around the world,” said Peter Knutsson, Toontrack’s CEO”

Toontrack has announced the release of the Pop/Rock EZX expansion.

Toontrack Pop/Rock EZX

The audio and MIDI content is derived from the original version EZdrummer, but now converted into an expansion for EZdrummer 2. The sound and MIDI groove library from the original EZdrummer has been a staple in the creative toolboxes of top songwriters and heard daily in countless major label productions, TV shows and commercials ever since it was first released in 2006.

The Pop/Rock EZX is based around a classic GMS kit including several options for snares, bass drums and cymbals. The sounds were recorded in New York’s legendary Avatar Studios by engineer duo Neil Dorfsman (Bruce Springsteen, Dire Straits) and Pat Thrall (Beyoncé, Katy Perry) together with renowned session drummer Nir Z (Chris Cornell, Genesis). Avatar Studios is known for having one of the world’s finest acoustic environments and has won several industry awards. Since its inception in the 1970s, it has hosted bands and artists like Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Journey, Kings of Leon and The Clash.

Timeless drums spanning the whole range of pop and rock – captured in perfect sonic detail in one of the world’s top studios.

Pop/Rock EZX features

  • The classic EZdrummer sounds, optimized for EZdrummer 2.
  • Includes custom effect chain presets.
  • GMS drums with optional snares and kicks.
  • Large selection of cymbals.
  • More than 8,000 MIDI drum grooves and fills.

The expansion is available for purchase for 69 EUR.

Toontrack EZdrummer 2

Toontrack has announced EZdrummer 2, the second generation of the world’s most successful drum production software.

“This is not just an update or a new digit added to the logo, it’s a completely new program, overhauled down to the tiniest detail”, said Peter Knutsson, Toontrack’s CEO. “The release of EZdrummer 2 will not only be a milestone in the history of our company, it will be the day we add a new meaning to what the music industry commonly refers to as a ‘drum sampler’.”

EZdrummer 2 introduces a host of revolutionary songwriting features, the market’s most intuitive user interface, a completely remodeled audio engine, a new mixer with easy-to-use effect chains, two all-new mas- sive sound libraries as well as a selection of percussion. “The whole design approach behind EZdrummer 2 was to erase any technical barrier standing between song- writer and creativity,” said Erik Phersson, Toontrack’s head of development. “Looking back, it’s amazing how many extremely powerful features we managed to incorporate and still retain the overall ease of use. EZdrummer 2 is truly a marvel of how interaction design, smart functionality and cutting-edge sounds can work in perfect symbiosis.”

Toontrack also reported that coinciding with the release of EZdrummer 2, the entire line of sound library expan- sions (EZXs) will be modernized with completely new effect chains and graphics optimized for EZdrummer 2. With the 20 currently available titles spanning anything from jazz to extreme metal, the EZdrummer user base has access to by far the most extensive and versatile catalogue of drum sounds on the market.

“We are extremely proud to not only introduce a breakthrough in drum production software, but at the same time renew the whole EZdrummer Line. This is without a doubt the most massive launch we have ever undertaken”, said Peter Knutsson, Toontrack’s CEO.

EZdrummer 2 will be available May 6th, 2014, for a list price of $179 USD / 139 EUR. Upgrade from EZdrummer will be $99 USD / 79 EUR.

From March 13 2014 through May 6 2014, anyone who purchases EZdrummer will automatically be eligible for a free upgrade to EZdrummer 2 (digital delivery only, available for download on release day from each regis- tered user’s personal Toontrack account).

Toontrack releases Metal! EZX

Toontrack Metal! EZX

Toontrack has launched the first release of November’s annual Metal Month: Metal!, a new EZX expansion library for EZdrummer and Superior Drummer.

What happens when you put a massive, all-new drum recording in the hands of three of the most in demand producers in modern metal, let them bring it to their own studio environments and equip them with an unparalleled set of audio shaping tools? You not only get a collection of nine custom drum kits – you get a rampant battery armed for complete audio destruction. A nine-headed behemoth that leaves nothing but rubble behind. Nothing.

The Metal! EZX is based on a new drum recording engineered by Daniel Bergstrand in Norway’s highly unique Tanken Studio. The raw material was then individually remixed by Mark Lewis, Jason Suecof and Daniel Bergstrand himself into nine drum kits tailor-made for metal. Between them, these three producers have worked with some of modern metal’s most influential acts as well as those pioneering today’s multifaceted scene: Meshuggah, In Flames, Trivium, Whitechapel, DevilDriver, The Black Dahlia Murder, God Forbid and Dimmu Borgir, to name a few. The Metal! EZX also comes with a versatile collection of grooves and fills performed by Soilwork and metal drummer extraordinaire Dirk Verbeuren.

Sometimes the word metal just isn’t enough, it needs an exclamation mark!

Metal! EZX features

  • All-new recording featuring DW Collector X-shell and Ludwig Quadra Plus drums.
  • A total of nine (9) custom kits, remixed and layered with additional as well as personal samples by Mark Lewis, Jason Suecof and Daniel Bergstrand.
  • Included MIDI library performed by Dirk Verbeuren.

The Metal! EZX costs $89 USD / 69 EUR.
