Toontrack has expanded its EZkeys series of virtual instruments with EZkeys Cinematic Pads, an all-new instrument ideal for ambient soundscapes, scores and sound design.

Based on several analog and modular synths as well as a grand piano and an electric bowed guitar, the hybrid instrument delivers never-before-heard textures of sound.

For most of us, the anatomy of sound and its inner workings as a creative catalyst is a peculiar thing. The moment we hear something we can’t define – a new instrument – our minds inevitably open up to interpretations beyond the convention. Sound becomes visuals that in turn transform into tangible ideas. This library of sounds for EZkeys is a prime example of just that.

EZkeys Cinematic Pads is based around several analogue and modular synths as well as a vintage grand piano and an electric bowed guitar. Together, these components form a never-before-heard hybrid instrument of reverberant, peculiar, fluttering, ominous, visceral, fluid and literally out-of-this-world audio landscapes.

The instrument includes in excess of 70 mix-ready presets with a widely creative panorama of ambient sounds. EZkeys Cinematic Pads is ideal for anything from soundscapes, scores and sound design to modern pop and electronic.

Available from Toontrack, EZkeys Cinematic Pads is priced $179 USD / 149 EUR. Existing EZkeys users can get the library at a discounted price.
