Toontrack has announced the release of the a broad collection of guitar tones designed by renowned session player Steve Hunter (Alice Cooper, Lou Reed and many more).
The Guitar Tone Palette EZmix Pack features 50 guitar tones based on amp/cab simulation and the complex network of EZmix 2 effects, covering everything from clean and ambient to heavily distorted tones.
For the past five decades and counting, Steve Hunter’s iconic guitar chops have been tearing up the airwaves through PAs on some of the biggest stages around the world and heard on anything from era-defining records by Alice Cooper and Lou Reed to the soundtrack of Bette Midler’s “The Rose.” If there ever was a literal definition needed for what a broad guitar player is, Steve Hunter’s name should be in the headline.
Calling this EZmix pack a palette couldn’t be more fitting – it’s a virtual color swatch of essential guitar tones needed in any session scenario. Expect anything from the gritty, gnarly and growling go-to settings for rock rhythms to ambient and ethereal cleans, tones for soaring leads and the out-there effects you need for your spur-of-the-moment whims. Best of all, a lifetime-on-the-job worth of knowledge went into creating each and every setting, so as opposed to dialing in tones, you can safely lean back and focus all your energy on coming up with the big riffs, the great arrangements and the out-of-the-box ideas, knowing that Steve’s got your back sound-wise.
The Guitar Tone Palette EZmix Pack is available from Toontrack for 39 USD/EUR as part of the “Take it Easy” promotion through July 31, 2021 (regular 49 USD/EUR).
