The Swedish kings of drum production – Toontrack – have released the Kicks & Snares EZX for their multi-award winning EZdrummer 2 and Superior Drummer 3 software tools.

Toontrack know that the two main ingredients in any mix regardless of style or genre are the kick and the snare and engineers and producers would undoubtedly agree. The Toontrack Kicks & Snares EZX will give you exactly that… kicks and snares. 

A massive amount of them in fact – in total, 74 multi sampled and never before released instruments recorded in eight of the finest studios across Australia and the UK. Factoring in the wide range of alternative tunings and recorded configurations, you’ll have around 130 unique kick and snare voices in your arsenal.

What differentiates this EZX from the rest is that each kick and snare position has four extra channels featuring individually processed versions: ‘Sub,’ ‘Skin Lo,’ ‘Skin Hi’ and ‘Club/Stick.’ This will enable you to infinitely tweak and find your personal blends for each instrument.

In addition, the Kicks & Snares EZX comes with nearly 100 unique kit presets covering anything from traditional/organic mixes to those involving elaborate sound design. In addition, one set of toms, two crashes, one ride and one set of hi-hats are included for easy kit construction.

Combined, this all makes this EZX a veritable monster of sound for broad use in anything from custom kit creation and sound replacement to acoustic/organic, modern pop, hip-hop, ambient and electronic.
