Hands On Review: Toontrack EZkeys

EZkeys

For many musicians, the piano is the ultimate instrument for writing songs and composing. But what if you don’t have the keyboard chops to really play the parts you want to hear? Toontrack has the answer with EZkeys! Designed for the piano-challenged among us, EZkeys contains a gorgeous sampled grand piano and a huge assortment of MIDI files, played by a real pianist. These are organized into intros, verses, choruses, bridges, endings, and so on, in many musical styles. You pull MIDI parts into the built-in song track. Now you can manipulate them to your heart’s content. Try different tempos, new keys, new chords. Rearrange the progression…write a song! When you’re done, simply drag the song track out and it becomes a MIDI file you can load into any DAW. Your song is written and your keyboard part is done. This is the piano/songwriting tool we’ve all been waiting for!
