The Steinway & Sons B-211, widely considered the “perfect piano” by professionals.
The Studio Grand sound library features a carefully sampled Steinway & Sons B-211 grand piano. With its balanced timbre and versatile range of use, this specific instrument is commonly referred to as the “perfect piano” and often the premier choice for professional studio work. All this combined with the creative framework of EZkeys will give you not only the sound of one of the world’s finest pianos – it even comes with tools to help you create and write great music.
EZkeys Studio Grand contains the same software, functionality and extensive MIDI library as the other EZkeys titles.
EZkeys includes a host of revolutionary and creative songwriting features, ensuring that YOU write the songs, not the program. Transpose full MIDI tracks on the fly, add playing styles from other MIDI or use the groundbreaking EZkeys Chord Wheel to customize chord voicing and harmonic color – and much, much more.
EZkeys comes with an extensive MIDI library performed by a professional session pianist. Played with increasing complexity in full song sections and covering all major genres, this library is not only a creative boost, it’s an untapped source of inspiration for your yet unwritten songs. Drag, drop and lay down the foundation to a track in no time – right inside EZkeys.
We asked longtime Toontrack collaborator Rikard From to play whatever came to mind after hearing the sounds of the EZkeys Studio Grand.

The included signal chain presets are based on high quality effects from Overloud. Effects used range from reverb to tape simulation and distortion. You can adjust each preset by using a set of controls that will affect the individual parameters.
A nice allround setting that is usable for ballads, rock or solo performances.
Warm and Saturated
A deep, warm sounding setting with a tape feed knob that lets you adjust the amount of tape saturation. The reverb used in this preset is a plate.
A brighter mid-scooped setting with a pronounced attack. You’ll be able to tweak the amount of EQ, reverb and chorus.
Clear and distinct. Works equally well for solo performances as for cutting through in a mix.
In this setting, the shaping is done by blending in an octave effect. Together with the big reverb and the stereo enhancer, you can shape this sound way beyond the original tone of the piano.
A delay and an inverse reverb are the corner stone of this preset. Controls for delay amount, delay time, reverb and EQ can create spacey and surreal sounds.
The user interface of EZkeys provides an unprecedented workflow for quick and easy songwriting. Go from sketching out your initial melodic idea to writing complete and customized piano pieces without leaving the program. In EZkeys YOU are in total creative control.
