Sonic Reality and Toontrack Music announce EZplayer pro bundled with Ocean Way Drums and Drum Masters

Sonic Reality

Sonic Reality and Toontrack Music have announced a new "power bundle" of Toontrack Music's MIDI arranger plug-in, EZplayer pro, with Sonic Reality's Kontakt Player-based drum products. With the addition of EZplayer pro, Ocean Way Drums and Drum Masters will now have the powerful MIDI features found in Toontrack Music's popular drum products such as EZDrummer and Superior Drummer 2.0 plus more.

Andreas Sundgren, CEO, Toontrack Music: "We are pleased and excited to be working together with a brand like Sonic Reality. This bundle agreement adds value to both companies product lines and profiles and it also shows Toontrack Music as a provider of solutions for both developers and end users."

Dave Kerzner, CEO, Sonic Reality: "Now that we have lower priced versions of our high end products like Ocean Way Drums DL Edition, we're now able to also offer instant ready-to-go MIDI grooves that make our products more accessible to every musician. We're excited to be working with Toontrack to provide EZplayer Pro for our users".

EZplayer pro
EZplayer pro is a multi track MIDI organizer, arranger and format conversion tool between mapping formats that allows you to gather all your MIDI clips in one browser. You can use EZplayer pro to preview those MIDI clips and drag and drop them directly into your host. The multi track arranger in EZplayer pro also makes it possible to arrange MIDI clips into fused sequences to either be saved back into the EZplayer pro browser for later use or be dragged into your usual sequencer as part of a composition.

Ocean Way Drums Silver & DL Editions
Following the Gold and Platinum Editions, Sonic Reality now offers drastically reduced prices with the new Ocean Way Drums DL- and Silver-Editions:

  • Ocean Way Drums Silver Edition at $399 street price has the same features of the Gold Edition with simply 9 multichannel kits instead of the 19 of Gold (Half the kits, half the price). This 30 gigabyte drum plug-in features over 6 "album ready" mixes per kit, discrete mic mixing control and "stunning 'audiophile' fidelity".
  • Ocean Way Drums DL Edition for $199 street price has over 10 gigabytes of samples and features 5 DL kits each with 3 "album ready" mixes plus a Download Card which allows users to add their choice of 2 additional DL kits or 1 Multichannel kit exclusively from DownloadableSoundz.com.

Drum Masters
Drum Masters is an Infinite Player virtual instrument powered by Native Instruments' Kontakt that offers kits and audio grooves from some of the world's top studio drummers. It has multitrack and stereo Rex loops combined with MIDI playable drum kits for realistic simulation of a live studio drum session. Recorded in many studios around the world, Drum Masters features legendary drummers Steve Gadd (Paul Simon, Steely Dan), Bill Bruford (Yes, King Crimson), Jerry Marotta (Peter Gabriel), Danny Gottlieb (Pat Metheny Group), Ed Greene (Donald Fagen, Barry White), Nick D'Virgilio (Tears for Fears, Genesis) and Bun E. Carlos (Cheap Trick) as well as iconic drumming styles from Classic Rock to Motown Soul. It comes in a variety of different sized and priced versions such as Silver, Gold, Platinum and Complete Editions.
