A Slice of Americana

Note: This product requires EZdrummer version 1.3 and up, EZdrummer 2, or Superior Drummer 2.3 or above.

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. Engineers at Sweetwater know that your drum sounds can make or break a sound - you'll love what Toontrack Americana EZX can do for your tracks.

Toontrack Americana EZX at a Glance:
  • State of the art
  • Small is beautiful
  • Attention to detail
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.

Toontrack Americana EZX Expansion Pack Features:
  • Intimate and natural-sounding Fibes Maple and 1960s Ludwig kits
  • Wood hoop "snare off" snare drum
  • Sizzle strip and Cross Crasherz FX cymbals
  • Zildjian sizzle ride and more
  • Recorded with both brushes and sticks
  • Included MIDI
Americana EZX gives you natural-sounding, organic drums for your rootsy tracks!

Fantastic Sounding

I've been using the Nashville Kit for several years, which in itself is nice. We used the Nashville kit on our last album, but for our next album I was looking for something different, and I found it with the Americana kit. The kit has a fantastic natural sound. Our genre is Country/Americana and this kit without question fits the bill. The kicks aren't over bearing. The extras (celtic bell, and sizzle strip) are great. The brushes sound really nice also. If you're looking for a natural, intimate sound this is the kit.

Sounds great, easy to use

I use the EZ Drummer samples triggered via an M-Audio Axiom 25. Or I drag and drop loops into a track in Reaper. Either way I'm pleased with the product, both ease of use and quality of samples. See also Nashville EZ for even better sounding samples.

Simply Complex

Americana EZX is my favorite expansion for EZ drummer I own. Love the stripped down sound.

Amazing Quality!

This app is nothing short of AMAZING! I first discovered EZ Drummer as a low cost drumming solution that I could use in my very modest project studio. However after hearing the first expansion pack I’ve been hooked ever since (currently I have six). 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 I’ve seen no better price for this app except at Sweetwater.
