Check out Toontrack’s EZkeys promo today !


All awesome EZkeys products are on sale from Toontrack today. Check ‘em out !

Here are some select highlighted EZkeys products, be sure to see all promos at the link above…

EZkeys Electric Grand

EZkeys Electric Grand comes with a carefully sampled Yamaha CP-80. This groundbreaking instrument was first introduced on the market in the late 1970s as a compact, electric option to the regular grand piano and has since become a modern classic, immortalized in chart-topping songs by a wide range of artists spanning across the genres.

EZkeys Mellotoon

EZkeys Mellotoon is based on the Mellotron keyboard introduced in the early 1960s. This unique instrument was the first of its kind to include samples of real instruments, but as opposed to the modern-day digital sampler, the Mellotron pulled them off a magnetic tape loop that ran inside the keyboard.

EZkeys Pipe Organ

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.

EZkeys String Machine

EZkeys String Machine sound library is based around a meticulously sampled mid-seventies Solina String Ensemble synthesizer, but also comes with a collection of sounds sampled from several other machines of the same era. Combined with the rich selection of presets and instrument blends, EZkeys String Machine paints a sonic landscape of never-before-heard hybrids of sounds sure to become a staple in your arsenal of creative tools.

Now that we’ve entered the second decade of the new millennium, we’re very much back – right smack in the ’80s again.

This EZkeys MIDI pack was inspired by the wealth of artists from the scene’s budding ’80s through to the second wave of today’s resurgence. It especially hones in on the darker side of things and aims to deliver all the tasty hooks, gritty feels and punkish undertones you need for the ultimate battery of synth-pop ideas.

Melda Production’s MTurboEQ on promo for 50% off


MTurboEQ is a unique vintage-style equalizer. It’s not one of them, it’s all of them !

About MTurboEQ :

MTurboEQ is a unique vintage-style equalizer inspired by most of the well-known classic hardware. It’s not one of them, it’s all of them! For quick and easy equalization with pristine results.

Equalization reinvented for easier and faster workflow

MTurboEQ speeds up the workflow tremendously by providing access to so many classic equalizers in a single click. But it doesn’t stop there. The controls in each hardware were very different, and very weird in many cases, so one had to take a lot of time learning to work with such a clumsy interface. All models in MTurboEQ have pretty much the same user interface and features.

Today is Dynamic Range Day


Dynamic Range is perhaps the most important subject for any sound engineer these days ! Join the webcast, Check it out now !

About Dynamic Range Day

The so-called “Loudness Wars” is entirely based on a modern myth – a fairytale full of nonsense that has somehow hypnotized the entire music industry for the last ten years – and is permanently damaging the music we listen to as a result. Learn more at the dRD website.

You may also want to learn more about compression by viewing Ian Shepherd’s Q&A and live streams from his YouTube channel.

There are many compressor / limiter plug-ins on the market that can help you stay in the perfect (LUFS) zone for your mixing and mastering projects.

But, keep in mind that these great compressors / limiters have not been designed to make your music sound LOUDER, to the contrary. They are amazing tools, ONLY if you use them to “control” the dynamic range of the audio signal…

Check out all the Compressors/Limiters on the DontCrack store many are at Special pricing for the Dynamic Range Day and the following weekend.
