Toontrack launches Jazz EZkeys MIDI

Toontrack Jazz EZkeys MIDI

Toontrack has announced the release of Jazz EZkeys MIDI, a collection of MIDI files for the EZkeys virtual piano instrument.

When we asked jazz piano maestro Thiago Pinheiro (Stevie Wonder, Billy Cobham) to deliver a cross-section of jazz piano through the ages and boil that down into a songwriting-friendly EZkeys format, he took us on a jazz-fused ride starting with the standards through the sub-genres and ending up right where we are today.

For the songwriter looking for instant ideas, the guitarist wanting to jam or for someone who wants to learn more about the basics and essentials of jazz, this is the perfect tool!

Jazz EZkeys MIDI features

  • An extensive collection of chord progressions and playing styles for jazz inspired music.
  • Tempos and styles ranging from ballad to uptempo.
  • Covering straight or swing in 3/4, 4/4 and 5/8.
  • Played by professional session pianist Thiago Pinheiro.

The MIDI pack costs 25 EUR / $29 USD.

Roots Sticks Presets – Blues

Any Roots SDX owner can attest to the fact that the instruments in this recording sound flawless, that the signal chains used to record them would leave any engineer in utter awe and that the the sonic qualities of the Blackbird Studio A-room speak for themselves.

What some may have overlooked, however, is the creative power of the Superior Drummer mixer and built-in effects! These blues inspired presets will add multiple effects and take you, your music and the raw Roots SDX sounds on a sonic ride through the land of the blues, from big and roomy to ringy, damped or tight and small!

Take these presets as a shortcut to a finished sound or as a starting point to shaping your own mix!

Toontrack Roots BRM Jazz Presets

Roots BRM Presets – Jazz

The second you hear the first strike of a snare, a bass drum or the sonics in the Blackbird Studio A-room, you’ll know that the Roots SDX sounds speak for themselves.

What someone might have missed, however, is taking advantage of the large mixer and built-in effects to further hone and take this already sensational recording to some place utterly new. So, here is something to get you started: Jazz presets!

These settings will add compression, activate chambers, EQs and take the raw core sounds on a journey from small club-type jazz to far out and reverberant cinematic drums.

The presets packs are available to purchase for 12 EUR / $15 USD each.

Toontrack has released a MIDI update for its Roots SDX – Brushes Rods & Mallets sound library.

Don’t miss that all owners of the Roots SDX – Brushes, Rods & Mallets will find an extensive MIDI update in their user account.
