In this EKX for EZkeys 2, the absolute contraries of the audio scope come head to head in a full-circle library of sounds covering the entire range from industrial rock and metal to dark electronic music and cinematic soundscapes. The sounds were based around a broad pool of electronic instruments and analog synths paired with an acoustic piano and an organ. The individual components were then processed using pitch modulation, granular effects, distortion, compression, amps and outboard to create sounds with an inherently dark, gritty and raw aura. Finally, these instruments were combined to create never-before-heard hybrids of sound represented in a total of 82 presets distributed over five distinct categories: Keys, Pads, Leads & Basses and Textures. Expect an all-encompassing collection of hauntingly bent, skewed, convulsing and phasing sounds covering anything from earthmoving drones and basses to ethereal pads and piercing leads.
In addition to the sounds and the presets, a MIDI library of material tailored for each preset category is included. By using several instances of EZkeys 2 and assigning different sounds from this EKX to their own layers of MIDI, you can create all-immersive landscapes of dark and multi-textured sound.
This is an EKX that hovers amidst an amalgam of styles, seamlessly reaching its tentacles into the different worlds of acoustic, organic and electronic. If you’re looking for a body of sound that offers the exact opposite of clean and pristine, this is it.
