Toontrack's Contemporary Soul Ballads EZkeys MIDI is just as much for the singer-songwriter looking to produce scaled-down and piano-based ballads as it is for the modern producer in search of song ideas and hooks.
Despite the many shapes, forms, twists and turns soul music has taken, since the ’50s and on, it’s never been out of style. However, one can’t deny its massive peak and resurgence of late.
Most of the worldwide hits are ballads. And admittedly, there is something about soul and ballads that go together – like a common thread in the fabric of both that makes the heartache, the traces of rhythm and blues and the subtle gospel references come full circle.
