Toontrack In the Pocket EZX for EZdrummer 2 and Superior Drummer 3 presents organic drums for hyper-modern productions from one of the world's premier human beat machines: Ash Soan, recorded at his distinctive UK studio.

When the likes of Dua Lipa, Alicia Keys and Taylor Swift need organic-sounding but hyper-fresh beats for their songs, they call Ash Soan. But they don’t send him off to any fancy metropolitan studio to lay down his tracks, they have have him record a stone’s throw from his front door. Welcome to The Windmill, 18th century mill-turned-drum room and arguably the smallest studio that has made the biggest dent in modern music history.

Toontrack's In the Pocket EZX taps in on the trinity that has made the beats recorded at the Windmill the keystone of countless hits: the inherent magic swirling in the cylinder-shaped structure of its one-of-a-kind room, Ash’s ingenious ability to tune, alter and engineer unique-sounding make-shift kits as well as his inimitable bedrock-solid pocket groove.

In addition to the included MIDI library and wealth of preset content, this EZX includes five core kit variations engineered to cater to the broadest possible cross section of beat-driven, modern music across the genres. Whether you’re looking to write beats for hip-hop, soul, contemporary R&B or modern reggae, there’s a kit or preset at your reach.

Welcome to the ultimate canvas for limitless modern music production – and the perfect opportunity to lock in with the pocket of one of today’s most in-demand drummers.

Toontrack In The Pocket EZX Key Features:

  • A battery of heavily treated kits from top session drummer Ash Soan
  • Recorded and engineered by Ash at his own The Windmill Studios
  • Features several extra kicks, snares and percussion pieces
  • Ideal for organic hip-hop, R&B, soul, reggae and modern pop production
  • Includes a broad range of presets for a variety of sounds
