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 Indie Folk EZX & Indie Folk MIDI

Toontrack Indie Folk EZX

Toontrack has announced the release of the Indie Folk EZX EZdrummer expansion library, focusing on capturing the organic, warm, intimate and ambient sound characteristic of the indie folk genre.

The EZX, aptly titled the Indie Folk EZX, was recorded at the Avast! Recording Co. in Seattle, home to bands such as Fleet Foxes, The Shins and Band Of Horses. It comes with three complete vintage kits: a 1960s Gretsch Round Badge sampled with both sticks and mallets, a Ludwig from the 1950s as well as a Slingerland Rolling Bomber kit dating back to the 1940s. Also included are two tambourines, a hi-hat mounted tambourine jingle, an extra kick and snare as well as a 28″ floor tom.

Indie Folk EZX features

  • Three (3) complete kits.
  • Two EZXs in one! Each kit is available in two variations: a standard multi-mic mix and a classic four-mic mix.
  • Custom drums from the 1940s to the 1960s.
  • Default kit sampled with both drumsticks and mallets.
  • Recorded at Avast! Recording Co. in Seattle, WA.
  • Included MIDI performed by sampling drummer Stephen Belans.

The EZX is available to purchase for $89 USD / 69 EUR.

Toontrack has also launched the Indie Folk MIDI, a collection of grooves and fills.

Toontrack Indie Folk MIDI

With the Indie Folk MIDI pack, Stephen Belans delivers a wide and useful range of grooves and fills for songwriters that are looking to expand their horizon, go outside their comfort zone or rethink what role the drums can play in a composition.

“Sometimes just a simple heartbeat/backbeat feel is all that’s needed. Other times, the drums find their place at far ends of the spectrum. Some grooves stick to a smooth ebb and flow with a natural evolution of intensities while other ones use more dramatic transitions that don’t rely on traditional rock defaults”, says Stephen.

The Indie Folk MIDI pack cost $29 USD / 25 EUR.
