Our friends at Toontrack have just released a brand new expansion pack for EZ Drummer 2 - Alt-Rock EZX.
What Is Alt-Rock EZX?
Toontrack state that the Alt-Rock EZX pack is a crude, genuine and raw palette of drum sounds inspired by the style of classic 1990's alternative rock and grunge. Having had a quick play with Alt-Rock EZX I feel that Alt-Rock EZX is fairly similar in vibe and aggression to Toontrack's brilliant Seventies Rock Drums EZX pack that sounds equally as raw and distinctive. What makes Alt-Rock EZX unique is that it features two massive sounding timpani drums alongside a four tom kit setup.
Alt-Rock was recorded by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio. Steve has worked on albums by the Pixies, PJ Harvey and, perhaps most notably, Nirvana’s “In Utero.”
Alt-Rock EZX includes two full kits and cymbal setups as well as several additional instruments and percussion pieces. Video review of Toontrack Alt-Rock EZX to follow on Pro Tools Expert in the coming weeks.
