A Revolutionary Songwriting Tool and Virtual Piano

With Toontrack's EZKeys software, you don't have to be a piano player to put together a professional-sounding piano part!

Experiment with different chords and progressions? Simple! No matter what genre your project falls into, EZKeys has you covered, with professionally played parts that fit all kinds of different musical styles. Perfect for songwriters, arrangers, and performers alike, EZKeys works inside your DAW or in standalone mode.

Toontrack EZKeys Classic Electrics Features:

  • Powerful yet incredibly easy to use songwriting tool
  • Works as a standalone application or as an RTAS, AU, or VST plug-in
  • Cut, add, move, analyze, and randomize your chords and song structure

  • Customizable velocity curve to match your individual playing style
  • Includes Music Theory Basics, with playable examples in EZKeys

Two Legendary Electric Pianos

EZkeys Classic Electrics starts with samples of two legendary and characteristic electric pianos: the Rhodes MK I and the Wurlitzer 200A. These instruments are modern music icons and have been integral parts of rock, soul, funk, and jazz performances worldwide. These meticulously recorded samples were captured by top-of-the-line microphones and preamps, and edited by Toontrack's veteran engineers. Whether you need classic electric piano sound in your mix or onstage, you can trust EZkeys Classic Electrics to do the job.

  • Accurate and responsive samples of the Rhodes MK I and Wurlitzer 200A
  • Standalone functionality makes classic tones easily accessible for live performance

Customizable Presets

To give you tons of flexibility, Toontrack has included 14 mix-ready presets in EZKeys. From pure to gritty, dirty to dreamy, there is a piano sound for any project you're working on. Want to tweak the tone further? Each preset has four variable settings to change everything from space, drive, echo, tone, loudness, body, detune, and more!

Super-powerful and Simple for Songwriters

The heart and soul of EZKeys is its songwriting function. Whether you're starting from scratch, bringing in an existing MIDI file, or using the Song Browser to piece together some of the included ready-made parts, you'll find that EZKeys is both intuitive and feature-rich. Even if you've never played a keyboard before, it's easy to start playing and making files in EZKeys! Pick the style you want to work in and immediately start working with intros, verses, choruses, and other song components — all real piano parts that are played by real session pianists!

Slice, Dice, Change, and Rearrange

Thanks to Toontrack's innovatively designed Chord Wheel and key transposition tools, you can quickly pick your song's key, add chords (majors, minors, and all the "flavors" within them), and then experiment with different chord progressions, song part arrangements, change the dynamics, add color to chords... nearly anything at all!

MIDI File Import

Need to bring in a project you've already started? Or maybe you'd like to start with another song and make it your own? Simply drag and drop a MIDI file onto the Arranger timeline, and EZKeys will not only import it but also analyze the chord progression and even change the key to fit your current project, if you choose!

MIDI File Export

Once you've created the song or chord progression you want, exporting a MIDI file from EZKeys is a snap. Just select the chords in your song track, drag them over to your computer's desktop, and your MIDI file is automatically created for you! Now, you're ready to use that progression inside your DAW or with your favorite virtual instrument! It doesn't get any easier than this!

Fun and Easy with Plenty of Character

I love the sound and feel of this software as well as the ease of use.The stand alone version with song recorder is handy.The sounds are quite flexible and authentic.The Wurly is perfect and the Rhodes a bit on the edgy side but in a beautiful way.

Amazing Software

Haven't dived into it fully yet, but so far it is incredible. Touch and feel of a real musician with the ease of midi editing. Great tool for writing and recording. The Rhodes and Wurlitzer samples sound amazing! Very intuitive and easy to work with.

Perfect samples and a songwriter's dream

The sound samples are so true to the legendary electric piano sounds! Sounds way better than my synth samples for the Rhodes and Whirlitzer. Making chord progressions, time signatures, tempo is so easy. Choose from different styles and you will get some really nice foundations for great songs. It gives me that Donald Fagen keyboard sound and since I am primarily a guitar player, it gives me great sounding arrangements. With a very reasonable price too! Way to go, Toontrack!

Great sound

The sounds are better than I expected. Quite playable right out of the box. I would offer 5 stars, but I wish there were a few more effects options. However, I am completely happy with the included presets and quality of the samples. I play keys as a secondary instrument in my project studio, so I don't use the songwriter / drag & drop keys option much (yet), but may get into it later. It seems to be a very well laid-out setup for songwriting. I'm probably upgrading my EZ-Drummer to EZ-Drummer 2 very soon for the songwriting / phrase generator.

EzKeys Missing Suspended 2nd.

My first review was higher. But seriously. Missing Suspended 2nd. This is a major problem! A Big Hole! A Flaw! Also it Took Toontrack over 3 months to ACKNOWLEDGE the problem!(many e-mails to them no response)You play a Sus2nd for Feeling and Accent. It is not something You go in and Edit in MIDI. What a Job ! And Very hard to Get the Feeling of it.Their answer? Play it in or Edit in DAW.No reason to use their tool If you are going to have to do that.Their Customer Service is BAD! And I mean Bad attitude! Also there are Timing and Velocity issues when Transferring Song to DAW or Midi Editors(I have PT, Live 9 And Sonar x3)Sweetwater. You need to publish this review. Your customers need to know this products limitations. I could write pages of Review about this program. But I do not really have time. Just Know It is not all it is cracked up to be. and the Company is Rude and Moneygrubbing.
