An Upright Fits Where a Grand Does Not

Musicians at Sweetwater know that not every piano part calls for a huge grand piano sound, and that's why Toontrack created the EZkeys Small Upright software instrument. It starts with EZkeys, the acclaimed virtual piano and songwriting software with an extensive MIDI library. This edition of EZkeys focuses on a six-octave August Hoffman upright piano, a small instrument known as Bambino with a distinct, focused sound that holds its own in any mix. It's a piano tone that's perfect for classic rock, indie rock, pop, and any fast-paced arrangement, and you can add it to your software instrument collection with Toontrack's EZkeys Small Upright.

Toontrack EZkeys Small Upright Virtual Piano and Songwriting Software at a Glance:
  • A small upright piano for present, focused sound
  • Simple user interface makes finding the right piano sound and chord progression easy
  • Smart transposition adds unrivaled realism to your piano performances and tracks
A small upright piano for present, focused sound

EZkeys Small Upright is a great software instrument to turn to for a piano sound that will definitely cut through a mix. The specific instrument that was sampled for this library is known as Bambino, a petite piano made in the '70s by Swedish piano manufacturer August Hoffman. This piano has a distinct sound that resonates with a powerful voice while playing nicely with other instrumentation.

Simple user interface makes finding the right piano sound and chord progression easy

Toontrack loaded EZkeys Small Upright with a MIDI library that includes hundreds of professionally played loops and phrases. This extensive collection gives you access to every major style of piano performance, covering pop, rock, gospel, country, jazz - the list goes on and on! Each performance is arranged into song section blocks, including intro, verse, chorus, and other parts. With so much content to choose from, it's a good thing Toontrack gave EZkeys Small Upright such a simple user interface. A column browser lets you quickly find the right MIDI performance, and drag-and-drop export makes adding your piano parts to your DAW super easy.

Smart transposition adds unrivaled realism to your piano performances and tracks

EZkeys Small Upright's transposition method goes leaps and bounds beyond what your typical sequencer or DAW can do. On the surface, there's the easy-to-use Smart Transpose Wheel, which lets you choose both the key and the chord variation you want. Under the surface, however, EZkeys Small Upright actually analyzes every individual chord and progression to provide the perfect transposition for each note. The result is that you get totally realistic performances from the MIDI performance library, in any key, without having to be a MIDI guru. And there's no voodoo at work here - EZkeys Small Upright can even intelligently transpose imported MIDI files in the exact same way.

a great songwriting tool

i just got a great deal on this program, and am having lots of fun with it. i'm a pretty lousy keyboard player, but in the world of midi recording, one needs to be able to use a keyboard to a great extent. with ez keys small upright, i can map out chord progressions, tweek alternate voicings, inversions, styles of playing, and drop those parts onto a track. then, if i don't want to hear those parts played by the piano, i can substitute a multitude of alternate instruments to play the parts. horn sections, violins, harp, a full choir -- anything i want. sounds great, and a terrific tool to help create beautiful backing tracks performed by a real keyboard player.

Was disappointed with EZ Keys. I bought this as a entry into the ez keys line and am not thrilled with its interface or flexibility. Was looking for the midi and composition aspects not so much the virtual piano sound.
