Today, Toontrack announced the release of EZkeys Small Upright and Indie Pop EZkeys MIDI. This marks the ninth sound library product and the sixteenth MIDI title in the company’s widely acclaimed line of piano and keyboard products.
About EZkeys Small Upright
The Small Upright sound library features a carefully sampled six-octave model 1001 piano by August Hoffman, a renowned Swedish brand with lineage tracing back to the late 1800s. This specific instrument is often referred to as the ”Bambino” and was built in the 1970s. Due to its small size, it produces a distinct, focused tone perfectly suited for edgy, modern music production. Still to this day, and despite the fact that it’s since long out of production, the inimitable timbre of of the six-octave piano can be heard cutting through in mixes by many top indie pop, rock and alternative bands from around the world.
