Toontrack EZKeys Upright Piano introduces a completely new stand-alone piano virtual instrument with the revolutionary songwriting features and core MIDI library of the EZkeys line.
The EZkeys Upright sound library is a carefully sampled ÌÐstlind & Almquist piano which dates back to the late 1800s. This classic and award winning Swedish brand delivers a characteristic, rich and warm tone unlike any other instrument of its kind. It was sampled in painstaking detail at a world-class studio using the best in modern and vintage recording equipment.
By combining a world-class piano player, songwriting partner, arranger with a meticulously sampled instrument, EZkeys marks the next step in creative music software.
The EZkeys software includes an extensive and pro-played MIDI library (over 700 MIDI files), compatible with any EZkeys sound library. The MIDI covers all major styles from pop, rock, and gospel to country and jazz. Performed by a session pianist and playedin full song section blocks (intro, verse, chorus etc), you simply just drag and drop your selections to the timeline to build the foundation to a professionally played piano track.
This combined with EZkeys’ revolutionary smart transpose functionality, writing songs has never been easier. When you drop a MIDI file on the timeline, EZkeys will analyze and separate all chords. The smart transpose wheel will allow you to change or alter single chords as well as transpose full songs on the fly while still keeping the rhythm and feel of the MIDI intact. Works on included as well as any imported third party MIDI
