EZKEYS MIDI PACKS !!TOP!!
Thought I might try a few. I can get midi packs for $10.00 each. Is this a decent value or too much? How limited are they & how many tunes can you get out of one pack before you start repeating ideas?
EZKEYS MIDI PACKS
The EZKeys midi is actually very useful and you don't have to use the style they come with. There's a lot of variations/styles/genres that can be generated from a midi pack (don't let the title fool you).
That is a very good price for those. Thay are not limited at all. Most of the packs (the good ones at least) are not genre specific enough to cause a problem. Latin and Boogie would be, but most of the others, no. My favorite is still Gospel and you can use it anywhere. You dont have to only use 1 pack with any one song you're doing. Being a guitar player I am a "one hand wonder" and I use EZ Keys to build the song. Often take out the right hand with midi editing in the DAW and play some right hand into it. You can copy the left hand onto another track and use it for bass guitar. There are some very good tutorials at Groove3 with Luke Oswald building songs with EZ Keys and EZ Drummer. It would be worth 1 months subscription to study those. You can use change the voicing for chords, change notes in the chords. I would not be afraid it would sound like someone else's song. The jazz are pretty much jazz but most the others could be used for anything no matter what genre you are in. Most are just rock and pop. Listen to the demos see what sounds usable to you.
Me not being a piano player, after I finish adjusting the midi like I want/need in my DAW, I bring it back into EZ Keys and that's when it really comes alive. It's like having an accomplished player at your disposal.
Time+Space announced 2 new Toontrack MIDI Packs: Acoustic Soungwriter EZbass and Acoustic Songwriter EZkeys. Both MIDI packs were created in tandem with their drum counterpart, Acoustic Songwriter Drum Grooves MIDI. Until September 30th, both packs are available for $23 each (regular price $29). More details from Time+Space below.
Keys & Strings EZkeys MIDI was created with the Mellotoon, its rich palette of sounds and music history in mind. However, it works just as well with any instrument in the EZkeys Line. What sets it apart from some of the other packs in the line is that it comes with two separate but related sections in each song, one for keys and one for strings. The keys section is much like any traditional EZkeys MIDI, meaning classic chord progressions and playing styles in increasing intensity. The strings section, on the other hand, has a more open tonal landscape, longer notes and is meant to complement the keys MIDI.
