Toontrack Eighties Ballads EZbass MIDI
Toontrack Eighties Ballads EZkeys MIDI
By acting a locomotive for blockbuster films, being a rotation staple on the commercial airwaves and a constant in the then-new phenomenon of music television, the ballad became the indisputable soundtrack of the 1980s. At the heart of these many now-immortal pieces of music was of course the piano, the synth or the keyboard.
While this collection of EZkeys MIDI dives headfirst into the infinite 1980s musical treasure and ticks off all the givens that defined the era, it also steers slightly off the grid to explore the somewhat more synth- and modern pop-oriented facet of the decade. Expect anything from the slightly quirky to the modest, emotional and glaringly majestic.
If you’re looking for a broad repertoire of inspiration for ballads that hit dead center 1980s-style, this MIDI pack is your first stop.
Toontrack Eighties Pop EZbass MIDI
The eighties is more than a decade – it’s the soundtrack of a generation.

Fast forward to now and there is no denying that we’ve gone full circle. The eighties are back – in fashion, culture and, above all, the music of today.
For this MIDI pack, we returned to its sibling for EZkeys and used it as a foundation to create the perfect complement for EZbass. Expect a mural of basslines that draws inspiration from straightforward pop as well as soaring power ballads and synth-infused new wave.

“As a drummer, both gospel and fusion have had a big impact on my own style of playing. With this collection, I wanted to pay tribute to gospel drumming on a whole while maintaining all the aesthetics of fusion. I also sought to deliver something that is useful beyond any genre labels or etiquettes,” he comments.
