To record Toontrack Americana EZX, the drum software synth mavens went to Austin, TX and tapped the sonic expertise of session engineer Mark Hallman (Carole King, Dan Fogelberg) and the famed Congress House Studio. These are not gargantuan Bonham-bastic drums - Americana EZX gives you classic, great-sounding drum kits that fit perfectly into a variety of rootsy country, rock, and even jazz tracks without upsetting the apple cart. If you've been getting unsatisfactory results trying to kill a fly with a sledge hammer - check out what Toontrack Americana EZX can do for your tracks.
Toontrack Americana EZX at a Glance:
State of the art
Drum samples have come a long way. Years ago, each drum was recorded in isolation - sounding disembodied (and frankly, fake) when you attempted to combine them into a convincing kit in your DAW. With their successful virtual percussion products, the drum wizards at Toontrack have done much to advance the state of the art. Americana EZX captures the true, natural sound of drums in a room - played by a real session drummer.
Small is beautiful
For Americana EZX, Toontrack sought out the perfect room for rootsy, small-ensemble recordings. They found it in Austin, TX. Congress House Studio is a recording hub for this type of music for a very good reason. This smallish, woody room was exactly what they were seeking. The result is a library of virtual drums that you can effortlessly mix into your country and roots rock tracks - and have it sound "right." Forget about stuffing massive drum kits into your more intimate tracks. Americana EZX is what you need.
Attention to detail
Toontrack Americana EZX gives you the gold standard: a drummer in a studio. Fibes Maple and 1960s Ludwig kits are recorded with both brushes and sticks, and you get several versions of each drum at different velocities - plus some must-have extras - so your drums will always have organic, natural response and integrate beautifully into your tracks. When working with Americana EZX, you'll forget all about the technology behind it, and fall in love with your rich, warm-sounding drums.

Americana EZX gives you natural-sounding, organic drums for your rootsy tracks!

The American EZX expansion pack has not disappointed in its sonic quality and as with all of Toontrack products there is little to no learning curve to its use. The sounds and performances are REAL: Real drummers playing the samples, Real Drums being played, Real Sounds!!!
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product to all songwriters, producers, and enthusiasts at all levels to buy this product. And to top it all off Iíve seen no better price for this app except at Sweetwater. close [-]
by Billy Hell from NashvilleI love my Ray Wylie Hubbard and alt Texas music in general. I went for this one because it was supposed to sound tighter and not as big as rock drums and... I LOVE IT!
