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).
