Software Toontrack - Amps EZmix Pack



Amps EZmix Pack

For the Amps EZmix Pack, we dove headfirst into the vaults of the the last few decades of guitar inspired music and came back out with a complete songwriting tool box for anything from rock and blues to pop and country guitar. Need an 80s "Purple Rain"-esque sound? Call it up. Want a gritty twang guitar? Call it up. A soaring lead sound, a bluesy rhythm guitar or a fat rock bass? Call it up - it's all in there with the other 50 pro-designed signal chains based on guitar/bass amp/cab simulation including effects and stomp box processing.

• Classic sounds starting from the 50s Tweed amps leading up to the modern day hi-tech variations
• Emulations of some of the most recorded and recognized tube amps
• British and American tube amp modeling
• Sparkly clean and saturated hi-gain
• Classic retro and modern industry standard speakers and cabinets
• Emulations of some of the most renowned stomp boxes
• Complete studio setup signal chains run through outboard, FX and stomp box emulations

50 amps at your fingertips! Plug in. Rock out.

"... sounds inspired by the last 2 decades of guitar driven music..."

That's a pretty funny script typo. I don't think there are any guitar sounds that weren't created before 1985.

Sounds pretty good, though.

That's pretty awesome, especially because there aren't enough amp sims already!

Next thing they do is make their own sample piano series!

After seeing this it reminded me I had EZmix2..I'd almost forgotten about it and never really used it. Went back to some old mixes to see if it could tweak a few things and it actually wasn't bad. I really liked some of the vocal and guitar enhancements. I think I might give the amps a spin...it certainly is priced right...even better if you buy a 3 or 6 pack.

That's quite funny in a way, new SDX maybe... but it's old guys playing old drums in and old studio through old gear...back in 2006

TOONTRACK, please put some of your cool effects in the S2.0 engine!!

Having almost all of their drum stuff, I'm thinking it's gets redundant after awhile...with their whole library what more do you really need? I'm glad they are venturing into new territory. I"ve used EZkeys on a couple of songs and have been happy with the results. Just bought the EZamps to give it a spin.

It would be great if they did a drum sample library that wasn't sampled in a nice studio. Perhaps they can sample a set in a garage or an empty bedroom or something.

Anyone can sample drums themselves in a garage or bedroom.

Look at claustrophoic...small dry, kind of crappy sounding.

not to the extent that Toontrack samples drums. not to mention the intuitive interface they have.

and yea i have seen the claustrophobic library. thanks though.

im just saying, if there isnt much more for toontrack to do regarding new ideas in sampling drums, they could do something gimmicky like that.

It's only you guys who think they've given up on drum samples. Why, I don't know?
They continue to make and release EZX's and SDX's.
Gearslutz just seems to be a bitchfest these days. Half the people in this thread complaining about the Amp Ezmix pack haven't even tried it.

At least tell Nir-Z to his face he's 'an old man'.

Just picked up "Amps" and I have to say... It's damn good!

Not just for guitars too... Try running some drums/loops through these and you get some really cool sounds!

Well worth the cash!

And Chris is right... Toontrack has released some very cool EZX's & SDX's recently.

I just picked up the New York Studios Vol.3 SDX and it's an outstanding addition to the original Avatar library.

Hmm, I might just have to give it a go.

In the past I've found Izzi to be generally on the ball when it comes to what sounds good.

Would you say that it makes DI recorded guitars sound almost like miced guitars?. I say "almost" because I think there is no better recording method like micing.

Of course... Nothin' beats the intricacies of the "real thing"!

But yes, I would say it gets you in the ballpark!

And at 50 clams... Ya can't go wrong!

And just a reminder that EZmix isn't an amp sim plug-in.
It's like a multi-fx unit.
The core product has a multitude of varied fx. This amp sim pack is like an expansion pack.

It's called "Americana EZX". Check it out. It's quite cool.
