Toontrack Release Information About 2016 Launches

Disco

Toontrack have recently shared details of their planned releases throughout August and September. The releases kick off with the launch of the disco based MIDI pack EZ Keys and EZ drummer which are available now.

Disco was once a global phenomenon that took the world by storm. Paving the path for much of today's modern music, Disco has left a distinctive imprint on the contemporary scene as evident through its unmistakable grooves and undeniably catchy melodies.

The Disco groove collection provides timeless rhythms that laid the foundations for Disco, whilst also incorporating more modern styles that shape the modern sound of the genre today. Disco Grooves features beats and fills inspired by the classic funk of the 60's and 70's right up until modern day. The user can expect a wide variety of beats that can be utilised to achieve classic old school vibes, or the slick rhythmic passages of new era artists such as Justin Timberlake or Daft Punk. Disco Grooves features tempos that range from 72BMP to 182 BPM giving the user the flexibility to decide upon how fast or slow their composition is going to be. With over 500 individually played files, the user can expect ultimate versatility and a solid building block to start building their funky disco grooves.

Whilst percussion may act as an integral component of any Disco song, one cannot forget the importance and overall necessity of melody which has been an essential driving force to any given track over the last century. Much like before, EZkeys MIDI takes the player on a journey from the 1970's funk movement right up until modern day, allowing the player to exercise uncompromised creativity. All the samples are provided by a professional session player and are able to be implemented within 4/4 straight or swing variations.

For those who are keen to rediscover a golden era or explore a modern soundscape, the Disco based MIDI packs are the definitive bundle to get you started.
