Three Incredible Piano Libraries

The centerpiece of EZKeys is an exquisitely sampled, perfectly tuned Steinway and Sons Model D grand piano. Toontrack meticulously recorded every note, nuance, and element of this industry-standard piano and turned it into an expressive, beautiful instrument inside EZKeys. If you're a keyboard player, you'll love this sound library as both a creative tool and as a standalone virtual instrument. But, even if you're not, you can easily put this amazing piano into your tracks, thanks to great tools from EZKeys.

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 the classic electric piano sound in your mix or onstage, you can trust EZkeys Classic Electrics to do the job.

Toontrack's EZkeys Upright Piano comes loaded with a top-quality Ostlind & 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.

  • Grand Piano — samples of the Steinway and Sons Model D
  • Classic Electrics — samples of the Rhodes MK I and Wurlitzer 200A
  • Upright Piano — samples of an Ostlind & Almquist upright piano
  • Standalone functionality makes all of these instruments 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!

The Chord Wheel makes experimentation simple!
MIDI import is as simple as drag and drop!

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!

This is ...as good as it gets.

What can I say that most of you don't already know about Toontrack.This software is unbelievable. The Classical Piano is gorgeous, the Upright is beautiful, and the Electric's are spot on. What you can actually do with this software would take much more space to tell you about than this review space allows. If you don't have it, get it. Don't even think twice about it. Once you work with it for a day or two, you will be creating piano tracks that only the highest paid top dollar session player could even attempt to play. And the pianos? are well beyond what most of us could ever afford to actually own. Do you have 10,000 dollars laying around for a Steinway and Sons Model D concert classical piano? I don't. But I own one now!!!This isn't some fake sounding simulated piano sound software.This is a serious game changer when you add it to a song.It will turn your everyday recordings into very expensive sounding top notch studio recordings. Here is a trick that I learned the first day that absolutly blew me away with the classical piano sound. 1-Lay out your piano track In EZ keys, something with flowing seperate notes, not chords, more Elton like( many to choose from)2- Drop the piano track from EZ keys onto a midi track in your DAW.3- Once its on a track in your DAW, keep the EZ Keys software open so that you can see it when you hit play in your DAW.4- You can then push down the sustain pedal on the EZ Keys classical piano, and it will stay down for the entire song. The only person that I have ever heard play like that is George Winston, with the sustain just swirling around everywhere. It is absolutly beautiful. It sounds like you paid a 3000 dollar a day session man to come in and play. The sustain pedal will only stay down all the way AFTER you transfer the track into your DAW software, and then push the pedal down and it will stay down. And if you freeze the track like that, which turns it into an audio track, it will record it to audio just like that. Amazing software to say the least.For 299 dollars, it wil turn your music, or your clients music, into a 1st class professional studio recording. Buy it, and be prepared to take your recordings to another level second to none. And thats a fact.Its a jaw dropper to anyone within an earshot of hearing it.

Great

There is no better way to get song structure on the plate than using ezkeys! You can use the midi files as they are and it is great, but you can also take some parts from the midi files and change them quickly to your own ideas and it is the best time saver you can imagine... I am a guitar player and in my case I can't ask for more. When I'm using the ezkeys in my song I've got always compliments on my nice piano parts. Nobody knows and realize that I've not played with a real player together.

EZ Keys Piano? Session Player on Call!

Like having a great session pianist on call! EZ as you want it to be. Create a quick piano background track for your project or use your musical knowledge to create a sophisticated accompaniment.Great midi file libraries also available. Import third party midi file tracks as well! Set up your chords and have them played in the style of your choice.4.5 because nothing is perfect...Would really like to see the midi file library expand quickly with some of the A List Nashville and LA session players.Great job Toontrack!
