    High-fidelity samples of the legendary Ludwig Keystone drum set!

    Toontrack's Vintage Rock Brushes and Sticks EZX Sample Library is a set of recordings to give your dfh system a retro flavor. The Ludwig Drum Company had little idea what was about to hit them in the months following February 9, 1964, The Beatles debut U.S. television appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. The band were a sensation and almost overnight everyone wanted to own a set of Ludwig drums just like Ringo's. In fact, Ludwig were still struggling to keep up with demand when along came another drumming icon John Bonham. As well as his use of the Supraphonic snare drum, Bonham popularized larger sizes, including the 24" bass drum similar to the one sampled for the Vintage Brushes and Sticks EZX. This 60's era Ludwig set belongs to 2khz Studio owner Nick Yeatman, who lent it to Toontrack so they could capture that phat and funky Ludwig sound. The Vintage Rock EZX uses TPC, Toontrack Percussive Compression.

    The Ludwig Keystone Kit was played by Chris Whitten and mixed by producer Peter Henderson and Mattias Eklund from Toontrack Music. To it they've added the classic Ludwig Black Beauty and Slingerland Radio King snares and a number of cool complimentary cymbals. The Vintage Rock - Brushes and Sticks EZX is topped up with customized midi played by top-notch drummer Morgan Ågren (Frank Zappa).

          Comments about Toontrack Vintage Rock Brushes and Sticks EZX Sample Library:

          This EZX is made up of sounds originally recorded for the "Custom and Vintage" Superior Drummer expansion. All of the drums and mixer channels are available in "Custom and Vintage, but the sounds in "Vintage Rock" were remixed and layered by Mattias Eklund of Toontrack to create a new product. The sounds in this EZX are well suited to blues, classic rock, and jazz. Although the library includes only one complete kit, additional snare and cymbal options, as well as brushed articulations, are available. This EZX also comes with a large groove library with variations on beats by famous artists, and grooves in rock, ethnic, fusion, and funk styles. The groove library also contains a section devoted to odd meters with beats in 3/4, 6/8, 5/8, 7/8, and 9/8, as well as brushed snare swirls. Overall this is a useful offering from Toontrack with a unique groove library.

          Great Expansion

          Comments about Toontrack Vintage Rock Brushes and Sticks EZX Sample Library:

          I own many of Toontracks expansions for EZDrummer. I've been very happy with most of them. This one is great. The snares have a really nice pop to them. I'd recommend this.

          Good sounds, great cymbals

          By T.M.M.

          from L.A., CA

          Comments about Toontrack Vintage Rock Brushes and Sticks EZX Sample Library:

          Okay I have Superior Drummer 2.0 and I was incredibly disappointed with the cymbals in it. Except for one of the hats, I pretty much hated everything else. High pitched peircing Sabians (not a fan). This has mostly K and A Customs and Paiste's, now thats more like it! I love the new Kick. The snares are pretty much the same, not much difference there. The toms... well they arent the greatest but they arent the worst eiher. The major downside to this is that you've got to choose all or nothing. You can't mix sets on Superior Drummer. So what this means is that I have to bounce two seperate drum kits, which is fine except I never really get to hear how everything sounds together until I've converted everything to real audio. Talk about time consuming and just a flat out pain in the neck! Oh well. The brushes sound alright, but the snares are limited a bit in this area. But its okay, cause I mostly wanted the cymbals, and boy do they sound infinately better than SP2.0's! So all in all, its worth the money! Next set will be... Nashville, then Lost Studios, then Custom/Classic. And I'll be complete!
