Since then, they have released two new MIDI packs. Drum Beats (£17.56$29) is a collection for EZdrummer 2 and Superior Drummer 3 of four-bar MIDI grooves in 15 different styles, in 4/4 or 6/8 time and at tempos ranging from 51 to 210 bpm. Epic Themes (£17.56$29) is a cinema‑inspired collection for the EZkeys virtual piano (shown above), aimed at music-for-picture composers. Most recently, Toontrack released Mick Guzauski EZmix (£24.76$29), a pack of over 50 custom signal-chain presets for their intelligent mixing system EZmix2, assembled by the eponymous Grammy‑winning engineer.
