Toontrack has announced the release of the Classic Amps EZmix Pack, an expansion pack for the EZmix 2 multi-effect mix tool.
The Classic Amps EZmix Pack presents 50 complete signal chain presets including amps, stomp boxes, speakers and various effects. The speakers were modeled using custom impulse responses, capturing the essence of several premium vintage cabinets and combos. The settings express a wide variety and cover anything from clean and muffled rhythm sounds to rich and saturated leads.
“We wanted to model the most influential amps of the past 50 years and put together a collection of tones that could work for any kind of guitar oriented music. We ended up with settings spanning anything from blues to British Invasion, punk, grunge and pop”, says Toontrack sound designer Ulf Edlund.
This collection is a testament and homage to the amps that managed to survive and seep through several decades of musical progression. The inspiration to your next riff is just a mouse-click away. Make sure it sounds great – add some of that warm tube sizzle, subtle speaker rattle or warm fuzz to it!
Some say the tone is in your fingers. We beg to differ.
The pack is available for purchase for $49 USD / 39 EUR.

This sound bank shows the true capabilities of intense X/Y patch modulation mixed with outworldly textures, fluid pads and raging basses. This soundset is your key for sounds that sit well in a wide range of electronic music generes, especially if you are searching for fresh signature sounds.

Of course, we didn’t forgot to include great bass sounds for many different generes. Ranging from Prog Rock to Progressive House, in this package you’ll find enough to please even to the most discerning ears. Crafted with care, by synthesiser programmer Louis Green, a Drummer/Synthesist since 1983, has taken a selection of his favorite patches to formulate a combination of useful and very tweakable sounds for your enjoyment.
