The Twisted Kit was designed and sampled by Michael Blair, a percussionist with a highly personal instrument set-up, most known for his work with Tom Waits, Lou Reed and Elvis Costello. It was recorded at the Toontrack Studio and comes with a massive collection of percussive elements. This EZX crosses over boundaries of genres like industrial, blues, ethnic and orchestral to form a unique collection of replacement percussion that will add a new flavor in any songwriter's creative palette. With Twisted Kit, there is nothing remotely odd about having a duck call as an alternative cowbell, mounting the hubcap of a car on top of your snare, or having rototom frames form a tonal hi-hat. It includes an extensive MIDI library that not only boosts creativity but also provides an untapped source of inspiration for unwritten songs. It includes everything you need to produce high-quality off-the-wall drum lines, right at your fingertips. With a full range of customizable channels and wildly varying styles of presets, Twisted Kit EZX is a great addition to any drummer's collection. At Toontrack, we're all songwriters and musicians, and it's a privilege for us to develop tools that we use alongside our customers.
