Today, Toontrack announced the release of two new MIDI titles: AOR EZkeys MIDI and AOR Grooves. The EZkeys title features playing variations for Toontrack’s widely popular piano/keyboard software EZkeys while the other title comes with drum MIDI grooves for use with EZdrummer 2 or Superior Drummer 2.

AOR Grooves
This collection of EZkeys MIDI playing variations has a strong foothold in classic rock, but with that “session musician” quality that often signifies the genre. Expect sturdy, timeless grooves with edge, nuance and finesse. This MIDI pack gives you the perfect foundation to any rock track where you want the drums to have attitude – without being overpowering.

AOR EZkeys MIDI
With the slick, keys and vocal-driven AOR sound as a starting point, we travelled back to its heydays and worked our way through the massive vaults of inspiration. We ended up with a comprehensive collection of playing variations ranging all the way from big ballads and syncopated shuffles to beat-driven uptempo material.

Expect creative chord-runs, twists, turns and a world-class player behind the wheel – all the signifying traits of AOR as we know it. Start writing!

  • Performed by professional session player
