The EZX line from Toontrack is expanding once again; this time they bring you FunkMasters, an expansion kit based on the drumming styles of Clyde Stubblefield and John “Jab’o” Starks. If you’re wondering who these guys are, they were the primary backbeat for the “King of Funk” himself, the late Mr. James Brown. Now that you are drooling all over the page, let’s get to the good stuff before the ink starts to run.

Each of these legendary drummers has their own drum kit interface within EZDrummer, so essentially, this EZX is a two-for-one deal as far as drum kits goes and with each one comes a wide variety of MIDI loops based on each drummer. Unfortunately, you don’t get multiple audio sample sets with each drum kit like in some of the other EZX’s, but honestly, when you’ve got MIDI loops created by these two legends of the drumming world, do you really need to worry about having more sample options? Toontrack also incorporated the iZotope plug-in “Vinyl” and their own plate reverb into the mixer to further enhance the drums to your liking.

If you are looking to expand your EZDrummer collection with some serious funk style or you’re one of those beat-junkies that’s been sampling and looping what these guys have played for years, now is the perfect time to check out the FunkMasters EZX from Toontrack. Bet you never guessed funk legends like this could be playing on your next song did you?
