I can understand issuing updates for something like EZDrummer2, it’s a software program that sometimes has bugs or doesn’t play right with various host applications, but what I can’t understand is why there are constantly so many updates available for things like MIDI packs. I’m just curious, a MIDI pack is just a series of note triggers for their respective instruments, so what could possibly need updating in all of these MIDI packs?
I’m not a programmer, so I’m sure there’s a reason, but I was just looking at my Toontrack Product Manager, and saw that almost half of all my EZKeys MIDI packs require updating, and some of these packs are relatively new. Just wondering?
Most likely new installers that support new operating systems so, a new version is required.

EZkeys MIDI packs contain more than just raw MIDI, they contain chord definitions, so they can be transposed to different keys without creating musical aberrations, either in playback or in respect to their notation. In this instance though – we uncovered a bug in the software, addressed in EZkeys 1.2.4, that affected quite a few older packs, and that’s (mostly) what those updates are about. Not updating those could lead to mishandling the sustain pedal in select grooves.
