Drum sampler company Toontrack on Friday announced
two new expansion packs
for the company’s sampler application, EZdrummer.
The first expansion pack is called Claustrophobic EZX, a collection of RnB, Hip Hop and Pop drum samples. Toontrack said the audio team paid particular attention to drumhead selection, room and microphone configurations when recording the drums for this package.
The second collection, Twisted Kit EZX, was made in collaboration with Michael Blair, Tom Waits drummer in the mid-80s. In addition to his regular drum kit, Blair was known for adding odd bits and pieces like trashcans, bedroom furniture and rusty bicycle frames to his drum sound.
Both expansion packs will be available in July and cost $99.
