Toontrack release blues kits for EZdrummer

New drum expansion samples kits from '40s and '70s

The Blues for EZdrummerToontrack's latest expansion for EZdrummer and Superior Drummer is aimed squarely at blues and rock genres, but here's more from the makers.

Press Release: The Blues EZX comes with two complete kits; a 1970s Gretsch and a calfskinned swedish Levin set from the 1940s.

On top of that, it features contemporary Paiste and Sabian crashes, vintage Zildjan A and K series cymbals as well as extras such as a suitcase and a set of calfskinned tambourines. All instruments were handpicked and in many cases road-worn by the sampling drummer himself, a blues musician with more than half a decade worth of experience behind the kit playing the blues.

The end result is a cross-pollination between new and old; warm and characteristic sounds that cover the whole range, from old school to modern, from dry to ambient. This is the sound of then, now and time to come.

The Blues EXZ also comes with a custom MIDI library called The Blues MIDI. The Blues MIDI comes with a large selection of drums suited for any type of blues or rock song. It was played by longtime blues drummer Hans Lindbäck, a phenomenal musician with decades worth of experience behind the blues kit and on the road. With all material categorized in different songs and organized in folders for hats closed, hats open, cymbals, breaks, fills or endings, finding what you need is quick and easy!

The Blues EZX is available on the Toontrack website for £51.95 / €62.95 / $88.95.
