Majestic, Timeless, Epic
A breathtaking rendition of a true classic – the pipe organ.
EZkeys is more than a piano or keyboard instrument – it’s a powerful songwriting tool. It comes packed with intuitive functionality that will make it a breeze adding creative layers of music to your songs or writing custom pieces from scratch. Welcome to the next step in creative music software: EZkeys.
The EZkeys software includes an extensive and pro-played MIDI library, compatible with any EZkeys sound library. The MIDI covers all major styles from pop, rock and gospel to country and jazz. This coupled with EZkeys’ revolutionary SMART TRANSPOSE functionality, writing songs has never been easier. Drag and drop MIDI, add color and transpose included or you own imported MIDI on the fly – the sky is the limit!
The EZkeys Pipe Organ sound library features the majestic organ found at Sweden’s Täby Kyrka, an historic church dating back to the thirteenth century. It was designed to fit the songwriting-friendly format of EZkeys and includes the most characteristic pipe organ stops and instruments. On top of that, it comes with a generous selection of presets, allowing you to take this epic instrument from its most traditional use to painting completely new, creative musical landscapes.
