Experiment with different chords and progressions? Simple! No matter what genre your project falls into, EZKeys has you covered, with professionally played samples that fit all kinds of different musical styles.

Highly Detailed Östlind & Almquist Piano Samples Give You World-class Sound

Toontrack's EZkeys Upright Piano comes loaded with a top-quality Östlind & Almquist upright piano virtual instrument. This Swedish brand has been making legendary upright pianos since the 1800s, and Toontrack did an amazing job sampling the one you get in EZkeys Upright Piano. What's more, Toontrack loaded their piano with a wide range of presets, including customizable effects chains for an even greater variety of sounds. EZkeys Upright Piano is by far one of the most complete piano virtual instruments you'll ever play.

  • Accurate and responsive samples of an Östlind & Almquist upright piano
  • 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!

Use and Record in Your Favorite DAW

Using EZKeys as a plug-in inside your DAW of choice, you can record audio directly to an audio track. Or, when your chord progression or song is complete, simply drag and drop the MIDI from the Arranger timeline onto a MIDI track for routing through any other virtual instrument you choose!

Toontrack EZkeys Upright Piano

one of the things I've been missing in my songs is tyne versatility on keys I've already written two songs and used EZkeys The cord wheel is excellent for making the cord sounds you want . the randomize function is really cool to give you song and music new ideas and new directions. and sometimes helps in creating new music for other songs Toontrack has done a great job.

Toontrack EZkeys Upright Piano Songwriting Software and Virtual Piano

YUP... Blown away... I have minimal keyboard experience and I was able to load this into my DAW (Sonar X2) and flush out a fairly involved song in minutes. Sounds wonderful, easy to use and a great song writing companion. Watched a few You Tube clips and can't wait to get "in to " this VI. I was not aware of all the editing and options packed in this plug. Helped get me out of a writers block rut. Keyboard compromised???? Check this out.

Greetings, this program is fabulous.The only thing is that the new Garage Band does not recognize it as a plug-inThanks for your support.

Really a guitarist/songwriter/producer and this allows me to create piano parts that end up sounding like a session player played to my in the same way their drum line works..

Surprisingly amazing

One of my favorite upright piano sounds. Reminds me of the piano from my old neighbors house. And they got the pedal noise just right.I bought it just for the sounds. But the included patterns are probably nice for people that need songwriting help. But for me that was just a plus. Try the demo first and see if it's your cup of tea. But it was the piano sound I was looking for.

Sweetwater Advice

Mitch Gallagher

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!
