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.
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.
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. You can control each preset by using a set of controls that will affect the individual parameters.
The default preset maintains the natural tone of this instrument. Shape further by using the controls for EQ and reverb.
A true bypass preset that represents what the piano sounded like from the raw recording.
Shaped to cut trough in your mix while still maintaining the natural piano character. Good for use in anything from big rock songs to subtle ballads. Controls for EQ, compression, reverb and detuning.
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.
Here we go back a few decades to a dusty blues or jazz club. The default setting is mono. A tape hiss knob completes the full vintage experience.
In the Big Hall
This preset features a hall reverb that is adjustable from subtle to huge. Sculpt the tone from big to small or bright to mellow by using the body and brightness controls.
This creative FX preset features vibrato and delay.
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.
