EZkeys Studio Grand from Toontrack is both a plug-in and standalone virtual piano that combines a piano player, songwriting partner, arranger, and a sampled Steinway & Sons B-211 grand piano in a single package. The software ships with an extensive MIDI library performed by a professional session pianist. From simple to complex, full eight-bar song sections cover all the major genres such as Rock, Pop, Country, Gospel, Blues, and Funk.

Creating the foundation of a track is as simple as dragging and dropping sections. The software then immediately analyzes and separates all chords. Clicking any of the blocks opens an intuitive chord circle. This function allows for transposing or altering any chord or a full song on the fly, and works both with the included MIDI as well as user-imported files.

  • Excellent dynamic response for great playability
  • Includes Sympathetic Resonance based on real samples

Effect Chain Presets

  • Standard - default preset maintains the natural tone of the instrument – shape further by using the controls for EQ and reverb
  • Raw Tweaks - true bypass preset that represents what the piano sounded like from the raw recording
  • Grand Rock - shaped to cut through in your mix while maintaining the natural piano character, good for use in anything from big rock songs to subtle ballads – controls for EQ, compression, reverb, and detuning
  • Mellow Chorus - all-round setting that is usable for ballads, rock, or solo performances
  • Warm and Saturated - tape feed knob that allows for adjusting the amount of tape saturation – the reverb used is a plate
  • L.A. Studio - brighter mid-scooped setting with a pronounced attack – tweak the amount of EQ, reverb, and chorus
  • Boogie Room - clear and distinct and works equally well for solo performances as for cutting through in a mix
  • Dusty - the sound of a dusty blues or jazz club with a default setting of mono – tape hiss knob completes the full vintage experience
  • In the Big Hall - hall reverb that is adjustable from subtle to huge – sculpt the tone from big to small, or bright to mellow by using the body and brightness controls
  • Space Noir - creative FX preset featuring vibrato and delay
  • Atmos - shaping is done by blending in an octave effect
  • Wasteland - delay and an inverse reverb – controls for delay amount, delay time, reverb, and EQ
