Musikmesse 2014Toontrack Announces EZdrummer 2

Toontrack Music

Toontrack has announced the second generation of its EZdrummer drum production software: EZdrummer 2.

"This is not just an update or a new digit added to the logo, it's a completely new program, overhauled down to the tiniest detail", said Peter Knutsson, Toontrack's CEO. "The release of EZdrummer 2 will not only be a milestone in the history of our company, it will be the day we add a new meaning to what the music industry commonly refers to as a 'drum sampler'."

EZdrummer 2 introduces a host of new songwriting features, an intuitive user interface, a completely remodeled audio engine, a new mixer with easy-to-use effect chains, two all-new massive sound libraries as well as a selection of percussion.

"The whole design approach behind EZdrummer 2 was to erase any technical barrier standing between song- writer and creativity," said Erik Phersson, Toontrack's head of development. "Looking back, it's amazing how many extremely powerful features we managed to incorporate and still retain the overall ease of use. EZdrummer 2 is truly a marvel of how interaction design, smart functionality and cutting-edge sounds can work in perfect symbiosis."

Toontrack also reported that coinciding with the release of EZdrummer 2, the entire line of sound library expansions (EZXs) will be modernized with completely new effect chains and graphics optimized for EZdrummer 2. With the 20 currently available titles spanning anything from jazz to extreme metal, the EZdrummer user base has access to an extensive and versatile catalogue of drum sounds.

"We are extremely proud to not only introduce a breakthrough in drum production software, but at the same time renew the whole EZdrummer Line. This is without a doubt the most massive launch we have ever undertaken", said Peter Knutsson, Toontrack's CEO.

Pricing, upgrade and availability information

  • Official world-wide release date: May 6, 2014.
  • List price: $179, €139.
  • Upgrade price: $99, €79.

From March 13 2014 through May 6 2014, anyone who purchases EZdrummer will automatically be eligible for a free upgrade to EZdrummer 2 (digital delivery only, available for download on release day from each registered user's personal Toontrack account).
