Toontrack has announced the release of two new expansion packs for the EZmix mixing plugin.

Toontrack Cinematic Guitars & Cinematic FX for EZmix 2

Cinematic Guitars offers 50 epic guitar tones for ambient soundscapes, scores and creative sound design.

In popular music, guitars are often typecast in a repeating pattern. They’re either loud and distorted in-your-face walls of sound, pummeling rhythms, shrieking leads or percussive strums – typically performed with variations of tones you’ve heard before. We claim that they can be more than that. With this collection of tones, we rewrite the role of the guitar in a composition.

We’ve run our amps through modulated effects, reversed echoes, delays, fuzz boxes, ambient reverbs, rotary effects…and come out on the other end with the most diverse and vibrant take on modern guitar to date. In this collection, a single chord can sound like an ocean, an ensemble of layered textures or a sombre, synth-like pad.

Cinematic FX offers 50 creative effect chains for atmospheric scores, abstract sound design and ambient music.

Cinematic. Surrealistic, epic, visual, theatrical, filmic, poetic, artistic. The synonyms are many and all equally descriptive of the end goal with this collection of presets for EZmix 2.

The Cinematic FX EZmix Pack pushes the complex network of effects in EZmix 2 to its limit to deliver the broadest possible creative canvas for atmospheric, ambient, abstract and visceral mixing. Expect phased filters, ambient reverbs, surging echoes, and the most outrageous textures thereof, intertwined in this collection of 50 one-of-a-kind presets for any instrument, application or style imaginable.

The packs are available for $49 USD / 39 EUR each.
