Toontrack has released two new MIDI packs for the EZkeys and EZbass virtual instruments, inspired by acoustic pop, Americana, folk and more.
Performed by a professional session player, the Acoustic Songwriter EZkeys MIDI pack was inspired by the facet of the Americana, indie, folk and pop scene where acoustic instruments are predominantly favored.
It’s an homage to the likes of Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Marc Cohn, Bob Dylan, Ryan Adams, Nora Jones, Tori Amos, John Legend, Fiona Apple, Billy Joel, Regina Spector and the rest of the world’s amazing collective of singer-songwriters that have perfected the art of scaling down but still managed to make music that sounds larger than life.
Expect a broad brushstroke that fearlessly skids right across the entire palette of song colors. Prepare for a collection of candid, melancholic, intimate, subtle and toned-down EZkeys MIDI, ready for you to mold into your own. Just fire up your favorite EZkeys piano and off you go.
Remember: Even the most subtle of songs can move mountains. Time to plug out and hone in on your next idea.
The Acoustic Songwriter EZbass MIDI pack was created in tandem with its counterparts for drums and EZkeys.
It offers a broad collection of fundamental basslines for use in any intimate, organic-sounding and acoustic song scenario where the bass isn’t supposed to eat away at what matters the most in the end: the song.
Expect a wide variety of basic basslines for your train beats, basic backbeats and subtle shuffles – ideal for use with the Upright EBX, the Fretless EBX or, frankly, any source of sound in the EZbass universe. Welcome to the thumping pulse of many of your next acoustic pop, Americana, indie and folk songs.
