EZkeys Grand Piano comes with a Steinway & Sons* model D grand piano, sampled to perfection in a world-class recording studio using only the best of the best in vintage and modern recording gear. The model D grand piano is the undisputed industry standard among performers and producers worldwide and has over the past century and half had an overwhelming amount of musical history and heritage created on it. The sounds were mixed to sit perfectly in a production environment without any additional tweaking. There is also a selection of ready-made and user controllable presets available, making your sound options seem almost endless.
This is an expansion that works with both EZkeys 1 and EZkeys 2. Note: This product only comes with a sound library – no MIDI or software is included. See full system requirements at the bottom of this page.
The included signal chain presets are based on high quality effects from Overloud. You can control each preset by using a set of controls that will affect the individual parameters.
The default sound. A very rich and fresh tone that will work perfectly in any type of contemporary pop/rock, country or classical composition. Customize the level of room reverb and compression by tweaking the controls
A true bypass preset that represents what the piano sounded like from the raw recording. Also, in this preset, you can adjust the level of hammer, sustain pedal and releases as well as detune the piano
A stunning plate reverb subtly blended with that mellow tone that will give the sound that characteristic, warm feel used on a lot of the classic jazz records
Retro Space Ballad:
A nice spring reverb blended with a fast repeating tape delay gives this preset a great retro feel
A chorus based preset that also includes a spring reverb for that 70s Swedish pop sound
Old Time Boogie:
Distorted through a 15lPS tape machine and with the addition of a spring reverb as well as a tape slap delay, this preset represents the vintage sound reminiscent of the dirty recordings of the 60s
Optimized to add extra presence in a stage monitor
Drive In Cabinet:
In this preset, the piano is going through a speaker cabinet and hitting distortion on the way
Going through a guitar amplifier with a distortion pedal and a spring reverb, this preset is great as a solo sound or for long swelling chords

A classic piano tone blended with a pad-like sound for the typical dreamy, contemporary ballad sound
