Toontrack Music announced on Thursday the upcoming release of a new expansion pack for the company’s drum sampling software.
Dubbed Funkmasters, Toontrack worked with Clyde Stubblefield and John “Jab’o” Starks, the two drummers for the legendary James Brown. “Their breaks gave birth to countless genres reaching deep into the realms of underground, experimental and popular music,” said Toontrack of the drummers.
The Funkmasters expansion pack features two kit interfaces, one for Clyde and one for Starks. The pack also features 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.
Funkmasters EZX will be available at the end of November. Pricing was not immediately available.
