Toontrack wanted to capture the essence of the Americana genre; the raw, untamed and no frills sound that rose out of the rebellion against the mainstream country and rock establishment in the 1990s. Where better to do this than in its very stronghold, Austin, TX, and through the guidance of seasoned engineer Mark Hallman (Carole King, Dan Fogelberg)?

Recorded in great detail at renowned The Congress House Studio, Toontrack is proud to present one of the most genre defining products in the history of the company: Americana EZX.

Press Quotes

"Toontrack describe the sounds as raw, unrefined and without frills, which they are, but to my ears they also sound musically 'right', which is what really matters. If you're after class without gloss, this one is for you." - Sound on Sound
