Toontrack has announced the release of new MIDI packs inspired by traditional gospel music, one each for EZkeys and EZbass.
Traditional Gospel EZkeys MIDI hones in on the traditional side of gospel and provides a solid foundation for a broad approach to this monumental movement.
Through music history, gospel has continued to meld with the times and has become a kettle of styles. It’s literally a musical gumbo where the syncopated intricacy of jazz, the unmistakable stride of ragtime, the playful improvisation of the blues and the harmonic vocabulary of soul together form an irresistible powerhouse. At the center of this marvelous mix of musical expressions, the piano has always played a pivotal role.
The pack delivers intoxicating hooks, smart passages and an outright uplifting joy and spirit throughout.
Traditional Gospel EZbass MIDI brings a goldmine of fundamental basslines for traditional gospel.
In gospel, rhythm is one of the incontestable cornerstones. And what’s a sturdy beat without the thump of the bass? Without a roaring low end?
The Traditional Gospel EZbass MIDI pack was recorded alongside the EZkeys MIDI pack with the same name. It was designed to follow the piano but at the same time offer basslines that perfectly stand on their own, regardless of whether you own the EZkeys MIDI or not. Expect material colored by all of the components that make up the musical gumbo of gospel – the syncopated intricacy of jazz, the unmistakable stride of ragtime, the playful improvisation of the blues and the harmonic vocabulary of soul.
