Toontrack has announced the release of its new Basic Rock EZkeys MIDI pack, a collection that was inspired by the music of the iconic rock artists that master the art of making basic songs sound far from simple – instead smart, to-the-point and blatantly effective.

But it’s not just about a great chord progression, what makes or breaks an idea are of course the endless combinations of the notes of the scale that make up the melody to go on top. The Basic Rock EZkeys MIDI pack gives you bundles of just that. Expect variations that twist and turn basic chord progressions and melodies inside out, resulting in all kinds of combinations that you can hone and mold to sound like you.

Keeping it simple is hard. Let’s make it easy. Start writing!
