Toontrack introduce the EZkeys West Coast Rock MIDI pack! West Coast Rock is a relatively new new sound where elaborate vocal arrangements, percussion and even horns jostle their way to the front of the mix in super-polished productions. But if there’s one instrument that’s really making a resurgence in rock during this era, it’s the piano. The number of anthem-like songs where it has the undisputed leading role is huge.
In this EZkeys MIDI pack, Toontrack move forward on the journey they started with their earlier AOR packs and continue to dig deeper through this massive chapter in their collective music history. Expect more of the creative chord runs, twists, turns and all the signifying traits that made this kind of rock not only conquer stadiums in every corner of America but that also all over the world.
The West Coast, late 1970s. The scene is buzzing with newcomers like Toto, Christopher Cross, Journey and Foreigner. A new breed of rock is on the rise. It’s slick, immaculately performed and has an easy-going, safe and carefree vibe – void of the all the common, rowdy traits of rock.
