This pack is perfect for the songwriter looking for a wide variety of basic drums for a broad spectrum of playing styles. It covers anything from mellow ballads to funky midtempo swing and straight uptempo rock, all categorized in different songs and full 4-8 bar song part blocks.

Toontrack Twisted Kit EZX over 70% off at Time+Space

Time+Space has announced a limited time promotion for the Twisted Kit EZX, offering over 70% the regular price.

Toontrack Twisted Kit EZX
Got Toontrack EZdrummer or Superior Drummer? Get the Twisted Kit EZX for only £15!

Users of Toontrack’s multi award winning EZdrummer or Superior Drummer software are in for a treat this weekend as Time+Space are giving them the chance to buy the Twisted EZX for just £15 – that’s over 70% off the normal RRP!

Throughout his career, drummer and percussionist Michael Blair has created a rich and useful range of musical textures through a combination of his timing, expression, and junkyard sounds.

The Twisted Kit EZX is a reflection of Michael’s skill with a collection of weird and wonderful drums and percussion that crosses over boundaries of industrial, blues, ethnic, orchestral, and replacement percussion to form a unique sound.

So, two rototom frames form a tonal hi-hat, a duck call suggests an alternative cowbell, tack drums from China become rack toms and putting the hubcap of your very first car on top of your snare seems like the right thing to do.

The Twisted Kit EZX is available to purchase for £15 GBP until midnight Sunday 29th April, 2012 (regular £54.95 GBP).

Toontrack launches Metal Month with Metal Machine EZX and MIDI

Toontrack Metal Machine EZX

Toontrack has announced the release of the Metal Machine EZX and Metal Machine MIDI, the first two products in the Toontrack Metal Month.

Testament, Megadeth, Arch Enemy, Exodus, Killswitch Engage and Devildriver all call the same man to lay the final hand on their albums: Britain’s Andy Sneap. This highly in-demand producer/engineer has worked on numerous Grammy® Award-nominated albums, is known worldwide for having produced some of the heaviest releases this last decade and has had an instrumental role in shaping the sound of metal music as we know it in the new millennium. Now Toontrack is proud to present the first ever drum sample library to bear his unmistakable seal; Metal Machine EZX®.

Recorded by powerhouse drummer John Tempesta (White Zombie, Testament, Helmet) in Los Angeles’ Henson Recording Studios, formerly known as the A&M Studios, the Metal Machine EZX® lacks none of the metal traits you’d expect: the thunderous bass-drums, the ferocious in-your-face snares and the toms that will cut through your mixes with a crystal clear tone to die for.

Metal Machine EZX features

  • Three kits (2 x Tama Starclassic Bubinga, Ludwig Stainless Steel) as well as a large selection of snare drums and cymbals.
  • Produced and engineered by one of the most successful and in-demand metal producers of the decade: Andy Sneap.
  • Recorded at Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles, USA.
  • Mixed at Andy Sneap’s own Backstage Studios, Derbyshire, UK.
  • Included MIDI played by John Tempesta.
Toontrack Metal Machine MIDI

Also available is Metal Machine MIDI.

Derived from the Metal Machine EZX, this massive MIDI pack takes a headfirst plunge into the archives of drummer John Tempesta’s impressive recording career. Played with killing vigor, it goes to show that John skillfully masters the trashier styles from his roots (Testament, Exodus) through to the more straight forward portion of his catalogue (White Zombie, Helmet), leading up to his more recent and more rock based endeavors (The Cult).

This all makes for a very diverse and highly useful collection of MIDI grooves and fills.

Metal Machine EZX is available to purchase for 69 EUR / $89 USD. The MIDI pack is 25 EUR / $29 USD.

Toontrack Americana EZX

Toontrack has released the Americana EZX, an expansion for EZdrummer and Superior Drummer.

Toontrack wanted to capture the essence of the Americana genre; the raw, untamed and no frills sound that defined the music that rose out of rebelling the mainstream country and rock establishment in the 1990s. Where better to do this than in its very stronghold, Austin, TX, and through the guidance of seasoned engineer Mark Hallman (Carole King, Dan Fogelberg)?

Recorded in great detail at renowned The Congress House Studio, Toontrack is proud to present one of the most genre defining products in the history of the company: Americana EZX.

Americana EZX features

  • Intimate and natural sounding Fibes Maple and 1960s Ludwig kits.
  • Featuring specials like the wood hoop “snare off” snare drum, sizzle strip and Cross Crasherz FX cymbals, Zildjian sizzle ride and more.
  • Included MIDI.

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

Toontrack has also released Americana MIDI, the MIDI for the Americana EZX as a separate product, available to purchase for €25 EUR / $29 USD.
