A marimba, a xylophone, MIDI and presets – all in one expansion for EZkeys 2

As evident in soundtracks and classical arrangements, as well as in genres ranging from pop and rock to hip-hop and all conceivable branches of electronic dance music, the marimba and the xylophone stand as the undisputed leaders among wooden melodic percussive instruments. The marimba's dark, rich, full, earthy, and resonant sound is equally suited for arpeggios and leads in an EDM track as it is for providing a dramatic segue in a film. Similarly, the xylophone's more pronounced, bright, and dry tone serves as an astonishingly effective and piercingly clear melodic voice in any context in which it is employed.

Recorded to cater to anything from full-scale classical compositions to any general songwriting needs, both instruments were captured at the famed 330 square meter main hall at Galaxy Studios using an array of different microphones. In addition to a generous selection of close mics positioned to pick up the immediate attack and body of each instrument, several mics were positioned around them for complete surround sound compatibility in up to 5.0 systems. In addition, the marimba was also recorded in the smaller Studio 1 room to offer an even more intimate take on the same instrument.

Aside from the instruments, this EKX also includes a basic library of MIDI unique to the product as well as a broad collection of presets showcasing the sounds and microphone options in anything from the scaled-down to the monumentally big.
