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.

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.

Native Instruments introduces Abbey Road Vintage Drummer

Abbey Road Vintage Drummer

Native Instruments has announced the release of Abbey Road Vintage Drummer, a new Kontakt instrument that features the sound of two vintage drum kits from the 1940s.

Both kits were recorded with a combination of state-of-the-art equipment and period microphones at Abbey Road Studios in London, providing a natural, open sound suitable for contemporary productions. For the first time in Native Instruments’ successful ABBEY ROAD Series, VINTAGE DRUMMER includes brush articulations especially recorded to provide the authentic sound and style of the swing/big band era.

ABBEY ROAD VINTAGE DRUMMER features extremely rare instruments from the earliest period of trap kit recording. The first kit consists of a 1940 Leedy 26″ bass drum, and two late-1930s tom toms once owned and used by the legendary percussionist James Blades. This combination delivers an earthy, wide open sound that lends itself to recordings where bigger, but less focused, low end is desired. A classic 1940s Slingerland Radio King was also sampled for this release. The Slingerland’s smaller 22″ bass drum and 13″ and 16″ toms provide more focus than the James Blades kit, but still deliver a warm, chunky timbre to any producer seeking a unique, natural drum sound. To add to the authenticity of this KONTAKT instrument, both kits were recorded with original calfskin heads, period snare drums dating back to the 1920s and original Trans Stamp and First Stamp Zildjian cymbals.

Native Instruments Abbey Road Vintage Drummer
The drums, the studio, the drummer: Ultra-rare drums with the authentic sound and feel of a golden era. Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London.

VINTAGE DRUMMER was recorded at London’s Abbey Road Studios in legendary Studio Two, originally constructed in the 1930s for big band recording. Alongside traditional microphone techniques, two extremely rare vintage microphones manufactured by EMI in the 1930s were used to add unique tonal color to VINTAGE DRUMMER. Users can mix in these ‘vintage channels’ with the modern state of the art equipment for a wide variety of unique tones not found with modern kits and equipment alone. Any combination of modern and vintage equipment can be dialed in, allowing users to customize the sound in unique and powerful ways.

VINTAGE DRUMMER also features brush articulations – a first for an ABBEY ROAD Series release. Users get inspiring brush techniques, alongside traditional snare sounds played with sticks. All articulations also come as grooves in the included groove library, which contains patterns from ragtime, swing, and jazz as well as a wealth of modern soul, funk, and indie styles. Regardless of genre, producers looking to add original flavor to their productions will find unique textures in ABBEY ROAD VINTAGE DRUMMER.

Abbey Road Vintage Drummer is available to purchase for $119 USD / 99 EUR.
