    About the Salsa EZbass MIDI pack
    A Latin rhythm section is like a steam engine where every piece has a pivotal role and equally important part to play. If you remove one, it shuts down. For example, the bassline, or tumbao, as it’s called, is the invisible bridge between the piano and the groove – filling in the blanks and adding vital syncopation, weight and body.

    Performed alongside its siblings for drums and EZkeys, this EZbass MIDI pack provides the missing piece and further cements the crucial role the bass plays in a rhythm section. From the basic tresillo patterns and repetitive ostinatos to the wild and funk-infused timbas, this essential collection of tumbaos will provide you with a burst of melodic, syncopated and playfully percussive colors. If you’re looking to brighten up your songwriting palette and make sure your bass always hits the bombo and the ponche in just that right way, this EZbass MIDI pack is it.

    About the Salsa EZkeys MIDI pack
    If the groove and the bass are the heart and the body of a salsa, the piano is the melodic and harmonic soul. Guided by Grammy Award-nominated Cuban piano player Manuel Valera, this EZkeys MIDI pack will give you an unforgettable fireworks display of styles, patterns, chords and melodic motifs. Ready to be swept away?

    Based around a wealth of different percussive and repetitive patterns – montunos – piano in traditional Latin music is just as much a cornerstone of the groove as the drums, the percussion or the bass is. In addition to adding that unmistakable Latin harmonic voice, how it interacts, bounces off and plays in circles with the rhythm – clave – is where it truly stands out. Simply put, traditional Latin piano isn’t just piano, it’s a complex musical language that covers anything from delicate note choice and precise rhythmic structures to glaring confettis of wild and colorful improvisation.

    Get ready for the mambo, rumba yambú, comparsa, timba, guaracha, bembé, cha-cha-cha and more – all masterfully performed with the inimitable touch, feel and nuance that only a true master at the craft can provide.
