EZkeys Electric Grand from Toontrack is a virtual instrument plug-in that features samples of the Yamaha CP-80 electric grand piano.
The plug-in combines a palette of functions designed to aid in songwriting and music production that includes a chord selector, an extensive MIDI library and more. The software is compatible with Mac and Windows and must be used within your Audio Unit, VST or RTAS host application.
The featured Yamaha CP-80 electric grand piano has been meticulously sampled at Studio 9 in Sweden while being played through a Music Man amp and a custom-built speaker cabinet using Avalon U5, Dimension D, SELA T25, Coles 4038, Telefunken U47 and Neumann SM69 microphones. Designed for an accurate dynamic response, EZkeys Electric Grand provides a realistic feel akin to its real-life vintage counterpart. Also, the selection of presets are designed to be mix-ready without extensive tweaking.
To aid in songwriting, the package comes with an extensive MIDI library performed by a professional session pianist. It features passages covering many genres including rock, pop, country, gospel, blues and funk. The MIDI passages can be dragged and dropped into EZkeys for playback, transposition and further manipulation. Also, the EZkeys Chord Wheel selector allows you to customize chord voicings and add harmonic color with the click of a mouse.

A carefully sampled Yamaha CP-80 electric grand piano
Recorded at Studio 9, Sveriges Radio, Sweden through a Music Man amp and a custom-built speaker cabinet using Avalon U5, Dimension D, SELA T25, Coles 4038, Telefunken U47 and Neumann SM69 microphones
All sounds are designed to be mix-ready
Uncompromising dynamic response for realistic playability
Default: An all-round sound brings out the best in the natural CP-80
Raw Tweaks: A true bypass preset that represents what the instrument sounds like raw, without effects and EQ
Ambient Ballad: A big sound for any ambient ballad. This sound involves EQ, compression, stereo enhancer, reverb, delay and more
Amped: The direct signal run through an amp and a 15" cabinet combined with compression, spring reverb and tremolo. A well-rounded sound with a slight edge, designed for anything from classic ballads to modern pop and rock
Chorus Grand: Reverb and chorus on top of the classic CP-80 produces a dense sound with subtle overtones. Tailored for ballads or mid tempo rock with an edge
Filtered: Bit crusher, filter, phaser, delay and plate reverb - all boiled down to a preset that takes this instrument to a completely new level. Suitable for anything from modern pop to classic funk or rock
Holdsworthy: A bright, in-your-face sound that won't go unnoticed in any mix. Chorus, hall reverb, tape delay, compression - this is a creative preset with an unmistakable modern edge but still timeless and applicable in any song context
Sweeped: Slightly less bright and with a more vintage feel, this combo of vibrato, filter and filter delay will surely find its way to many funky ballads and songs with a retro feel
Taped Phase: Tape simulation, compression, phaser and plate reverb - a playful sound with a distinct distorted edge and phaser effect
