Toontrack EZX: Singer Songwriter
Expansion Pack for EZDrummer 2/3 and Superior Drummer 3
Touch, Tone and Timbre.
A broad collection of drums - tailored for acoustic pop, Americana, folk and more.
Some productions don't call for big reverbs, pumping side-chain compression or excessive amounts of saturation, just the bare, unscripted and acoustic truth. Presenting a collection of nuanced, sparse, mellow and mature-sounding kits, the Singer-Songwriter EZX is an homage to just that. Welcome to the epitome of a bespoke drum library for any selective songwriter who considers the raw, unbridled voice of a drum kit as much of a storyteller as the song itself.
The Singer-Songwriter EZX was recorded in a choice room, relatively small and transparent to ensure minimum ambient coloration. In total, it includes five full kits recorded with sticks as well as one configuration and several additional instruments sampled with brushes. To paint the broadest picture possible, each kit was handpicked for its contrasting qualities, character and tonal complexity. Seeking to deliver the most homogeneously composed kits, the selective process was scrutinized in extreme detail - from the matching of heads with tuning and cymbal sizes with drum timbres down to the delicacy of the drummer's stroke.
The result is the consummate collection of organic, full-bodied and warm-sounding drums for laid-back train beats, smooth, brushed pocket grooves or any steady backbeat. Welcome to let touch, tone and timbre define the backbone of the rhythm section on your next Americana, folk, acoustic pop or other track filed under the amazing width of the singer-songwriter genre.

The Mellow Backbeat Kit
Small in size, but big in character. This kit is the definition of how less definitely can be more.
The Soft Rock Kit
Soft and mellow but with still with tons of attitude. Also has probably the coolest finish I’ve ever laid eyes on.
The Acoustic Indie Kit
A superbly balanced and natural-sounding kit that just sits effortlessly in any mix.
The Small Pop Kit
We chose to sample this one in two in different sizes and with both sticks and brushes since it's one of those workhorse-type of kits you never can go wrong with.
The High and Low Kit
With an extremely deep kick and high-tuned toms, this is a kit of contrasts. It really stands out and has a great personality.
The preset library includes a collection of settings designed to bring out the raw, genuine and acoustic character of each kit. Don't expect heavily saturated or compressed drum mixes - rather a collection of delicately engineered but still colorful kit presets intended to seamlessly work in any acoustic or organic-sounding production.
