Toontrack Electric Grand is the fifth title in the popular EZkeys product line and comes with a carefully sampled Yamaha CP-80. This ground-breaking instrument was introduced on the market in the late 1970s as a compact, electric option to the regular grand piano.
Since then, the CP-80 has become a modern classic, immortalized in chart-topping sounds from the likes of Peter Gabriel and also Abba, U2, Simple Minds, George Duke, Bruce Hornsby, Genesis/Tony Banks and countless others.
Even today, 30 years after its inception and since long out of production, the analogue, electric and amplified hybrid sound of the CP-80 continues to play a key role in modern music.
With the included broad genre mixer presets, the classic, crisp sound will expand beyond the conventions and, combined with the revolutionary features of the EZKeys engine, make this instrument a must in every versatile songwriterå«s palette of audio tools.
If you already own an EZkeys piano, donå«t forget to buy the Sound Expansion to get Electric Grand for less!

Bit crusher, filter, phaser, delay and plate reverb – all boiled down to a preset that takes this instrument to a completely new level. Suitable for anything from modern pop to classic funk or rock.
A bright, in-your-face sound that wonå«t go unnoticed in any mix. Chorus, hall reverb, tape delay, compression – this is a creative preset with an unmistakable modern edge but still timeless and applicable in any song context.
Slightly less bright and with a more vintage feel, this combo of vibrato, filter and filter delay will surely find its way to many funky ballads and songs with a retro feel.
