Ambient, strong, and honest… just like this site. Grab you vinyl and put on your skinny jeans because we’re going vintage. Proving that old things are hip and better than new things, ToonTrack releases the Indie Folk EZX package. I bet you could probably even buy it with a Whole Foods reward card. (you can’t) My big question here is Indie folk types always believe in analog, so this would make you a sellout if you use this or Pro Tools or anything that’s not free range or ironic right?
Today Toontrack Music released a new EZX expansion focusing on capturing the organic, warm, intimate and ambient sound characteristic of the indie folk genre. The EZX, aptly titled the Indie Folk EZX, was recorded at the Avast! Recording Co. in Seattle, home to bands such as Fleet Foxes, The Shins and Band Of Horses. It comes with three complete vintage kits: a 1960s Gretsch Round Badge sampled with both sticks and mallets, a Ludwig from the 1950s as well as a Slingerland Rolling Bomber kit dating back to the 1940s. Also included are two tambourines, a hi-hat mounted tambourine jingle, an extra kick and snare as well as a 28″ floor tom.
• Three (3) complete kits
• Two EZXs in one! Each kit is available in two variations: a standard multi-mic mix and a classic four-mic mix
• Custom drums from the 1940s to the 1960s
• Default kit sampled with both drumsticks and mallets
• Recorded at Avast! Recording Co. in Seattle, WA
• Included MIDI performed by sampling drummer Stephen Belans
So arm your vocal track with an ungodly amount of reverb and put on the Indie Folk Drums.
