Toontrack announces Funkmasters EZX
Toontrack Music has announced the Funkmasters EZX, a unique and exclusive recording of two of the most important drummers in popular music. Clyde Stubblefield and John “Jab’o” Starks.
On their own or in tandem, Starks and Stubblefield were the principal drummers for the Godfather of Soul and Funk, Mr. James Brown. Fans and critics alike cite their collective era in Brown’s band as the pinnacle of Funk. Their combined drumming on the classic double-album “Sex Machine” is some of the most innovative, inspired and funky playing ever recorded.
Funkmasters EZX features
- Two kit interfaces, one for Clyde and one for Jab’o.
- Effects sliders in the EZmixer, a Vinyl effect created with the use of iZotopes Vinyl plug-in and a large Plate reverb resampled at Toontrack® Music Studios, Umea, delivering all that you need to create those real sounding Funk tracks.
The Funkmasters EZX will be available through Toontrack Music distributors and retailers at the end of November.
