Cinematic Grand EKX - Unique sound textures, perfect for soundscapes, soundtracks and creative sound design

Simply put, the Cinematic Grand EKX could be described as a prepared piano - a traditional instrument that gets its modified sound from a variety of objects placed either on or between the strings. Only in this case this description is far from sufficient. The Cinematic Grand EKX is a completely new type of hybrid instrument that combines perfect sound quality, heavily modified overtone structures and complex sound combinations in an unprecedented piano instrument. Based on the high-quality basis of a classic Bösendorfer grand piano from 1891, this unique instrument was recorded in 4 individual configurations. Once each individual string was bowed with a real horsehair bow. Once again, each individual string was struck with the bare hand. Prepared once with various modifications in order to obtain unique dampening of the sound, and in contrast to this once more, so that the natural overtones were deliberately amplified in order to realize a very shimmering, airy sound.

These 4 basic sound configurations were then processed and enriched with a wide variety of complex effect chains in order to obtain fantastic and quite unusual sound textures. This is a piano far from its usual tonal range, perfectly suited to virtually any mood, atmosphere, story, and creative sound design idea you can think of.

The ideal instrument for previously "unheard" sounds, a great inspiration for soundscapes, soundtracks and creative sound design.

Please note : This EKX sound library extension for EZkeys 2 is a so-called "Legacy EKX" as it was originally recorded as a former EZkeys 1 sound library. In contrast to the sound library extensions produced exclusively for EZkeys 2, a "Legacy EKX" can be loaded and used both in the previous version EZkeys 1 and in the current version EZkeys 2. Users who still only use EZkeys 1 and do not want to switch to EZkeys 2 can still easily expand their existing EZkeys 1 with "Legacy EKXs".
