Toontrack has released a new MIDI expansion for EZkeys inspired by modern acoustic pop. Performed by professional session player, Acoustic Pop EZkeys MIDI pack delivers 4/4 and 6/8 playing variations in straight feel with tempos ranging from 62 bpm to 124 bpm.

Some of the world’s biggest hits of late go to show that a song doesn’t always need a bells-and-whistles-caboodle kind of production – if you strip it down to its bare bones, a great melody and performance are what ultimately matter the most. And, by all means, that’s nothing new – but the role of acoustic instruments in modern pop music surely has had a resurgence. Just give Ed Sheeran, Gavin James, Adele or Taylor Swift a listen and you’ll get the gist.

If you’re looking for a modern pop-inspired collection of ballad-esque material centered around great rhythmic foundations designed to stand perfectly fine on their own, this EZkeys MIDI pack should be your first stop. Songwriters at large, let’s plug out and zone in on some new ideas.

The MIDI pack is priced 29 USD/EUR.
