Music software producer Toontrack recently released the first library expansion for its compact, affordable drum sample plug-in, EZdrummer 2, called Reggae EZX.
“A reggae sound library has been at the top of our users’ wish list for years,” said Mattias Eklund, Toontrack’s head of sound design. “We are extremely proud and happy for this to be the first and much anticipated expansion we release for EZdrummer 2.”
The Reggae EZX was recorded at Rub-a-Dub Studios in Stockholm, Sweden and comes with a unique and genuine collection of instruments, all handpicked for this session. It includes two full, single-headed custom drumkits, a selection of snares, percussion, and traditional Binghi and clay hand drums. Everything was recorded using vintage microphones, the miking techniques of the genre, and through a 1970s Soundcraft Series II console.
Features include customized Yamaha Stage Custom and 1970s Premier drums. Two full kits (with alternative tuning/damping on two sets of toms), traditional percussion pieces and hand drums, and effects presets for a wide range of sounds.
A MIDI pack is also available, called Reggae Beats MIDI.
