EZkeys Classic Electrics from Toontrack is a plug-in and stand alone instrument that combines a piano player, songwriting partner, arranger and a sampled instrument and features two well beloved sampled classic electric pianos. The software features an extensive MIDI library performed by a professional session pianist with full song sections and covering all major genres such as rock, pop, country, gospel, blues and funk. Quickly laying down the foundations of a track is easy with drag-and-drop functionality.

Captured in painstaking detail, the Classic Electrics libraries combine playability with top-class sounds, perfect for the stage or studio. Creative songwriting features include being able to transpose full MIDI tracks on the fly, using any MIDI file and transforming it with playing styles found in other MIDI files, using the EZkeys Chord Wheel to customize chord voicing and harmonic color with just one mouse click, and much more.
