In big band land swing is king and this new collection of Toontrack EZkeys MIDI has plenty of it to go around!
The unsung hero of the big band melodic rhythm section is undoubtedly the piano. From the frail harmonics of a subtly struck open chord at the top of the octaves to the thunderous impact of a percussive pattern at the low bass range, the piano has a voice like no other. It literally covers the entire dynamic and expressive scope – melody, harmony and rhythm.
This Big Band EZkeys MIDI pack was inspired by the timeless musical legacy left by the likes of Count Basie, Nat King Cole, Duke Ellington and the many other players and band leaders who immortalised the piano as an unquestionable component in the big band format.
