    Coinciding with the release of EZkeys 2 in May of 2023, all available sound libraries for EZkeys were converted to EKXs. While all previously released titles work in both the legacy version as well as the current iteration of the program, EKXs produced beyond the EZkeys 2 release are uniquely for the new format.

    About the Session Organ EKX
    Few instruments have made marks in music history so indelible that they in the process have become just as famed as some of the songs that were created on them. The Hammond* organ is undoubtedly one of those. Since it was first introduced, it has fostered generations of new players and has had a profound impact on the development of anything from gospel, jazz and blues to funk, prog, rock and the many iterations of modern music of today. We are proud to add this icon of organs as an expansion for the EZkeys 2 format.

    For the sounds, the Toontrack team scoured the market for the most pristine, maintained and transparent organ from which all of its 91 spinning tonewheels were carefully sampled. In the final product, these recordings have been seamlessly merged with advanced modeling of both the organ’s tone and all its classic traits, like key clicks, percussion, vibrato and chorus. Add to that a flawless recreation of a quintessential rotary speaker and you have the utmost in extreme audio realism.

    In addition to the sounds and effects, this EKX also includes a wealth of mix-ready presets for all major styles, genres and sounds as well as a comprehensive collection of curated organ MIDI performances. Paired with the powerful framework of features in EZkeys 2, all this combined makes the Session Organ EKX much more than merely a source of sound – it’s just as much a tool for creative songwriting and a host for new ideas.
