Here's what they say:

Movie Scores – Action EZkeys MIDI
Imagine a menacing spacecraft ominously hovering over a metropolitan city. Or someone running terrified, falling and stumbling through a dark patch of the deep woods. Or a car chase on the freeway in rush hour traffic. Or a squeaky door, slowly opening... What do you hear?

This collection of EZkeys MIDI has captured every thinkable narrative suited for your action- and suspense-packed soundtracks or song ideas. Expect anything from the haunting, ghastly and deceptively calm to the pulsating, menacing and percussive. Inspired by the great composers of film and TV, like Michael Giacchino, Hans Zimmer and Ramin Djawadi, this is an EZkeys MIDI pack where harmony meets disharmony and where extremes on both ends come full circle – designed to let you scale the heights of your own creative self.

Feature Spotlight:

  • Piano/keyboard MIDI inspired by action movie scenes.
  • Keywords used for inspiration include: '80s action, suspense, psycho thriller, percussive action, odd meter action, modern action, crime action, car chase, alien invasion.
  • 4/4, 6/8 and 7/8 playing variations in straight feel with tempos ranging from 56 BPM to 154 BPM.
  • Intro, main theme, bridge and outro sections.
  • Performed by professional session player.

Action! EZX
The Action EZX presents a fusion of orchestral percussion, sound effects, custom foley and classic drum machine sounds, designed for use in any creative context where beat, groove and tone are allowed to transcend the traditional confines. In addition to classic orchestral instruments like timpani, tamtam and timbale, it also captures one-of-a-kind foley, risers, claps, snaps, drops and layered textures of sound never before heard – all intuitively blended, mixed, matched and saturated with various effects in creative hybrid kits. All in all, in excess of 250 individual percussive sounds are presented and used in the more than 21 mix-ready kit configurations included.

This is the perfect percussive montage for ambient soundscapes, creative sound design and any cutting-edge music production – an open landscape of sound, putting you in the director's chair with a seemingly endless sonic depth of field, enabling you to create literally any percussive motif you can imagine.

Feature Spotlight:

  • Orchestral and traditional percussion.
  • Acoustic drums and classic drum machine sounds.
  • Percussive foley sampled from a rich variety of elements.
  • Ideal for soundtracks and creative sound design.
  • More than 450 individual instruments/sounds in total.
  • 21 mix-ready presets with corresponding MIDI grooves.

Action Drums MIDI pack
The Action Drums MIDI pack presents a collection of unique and unconventional grooves designed for use in any dramatic or action-packed scene, soundtrack or songwriting context.

"My aim was to come up with slightly unconventional grooves and rhythmic structures that would serve as a foundation for high-intensity compositions. Having said that, the intention was to deliberately think out any other percussive elements, making each groove stand on its own. I wanted this to be a collection of full drum set grooves that could work as a starting point in a musical piece rather than a complement, " says drummer Norman Garschke.

This is the perfect palette of drum foundations for any broad scope writer for film, TV or energetic music in general. Be it grooves for an action sequence, an intense breakbeat-inspired theme, a throbbing electronic track or a raging rock riff, you'll strike a match.

"I think these grooves work great with close to any type of drum sound – from classic acoustic to modern electronic and from tight and small to big and ambient."

Feature Spotlight:

  • Drum MIDI grooves and fills inspired by action movie themes, scenes and soundtracks.
  • Classic drum beats as well as snare and tom grooves, rolls and runs.
  • Performed by professional session drummer.
  • In excess of 380 individually played files divided over ten separate songs/themes.
  • 4/4, 6/8 and 7/8 in straight and/or swing feel with tempos ranging from 55 BPM to 165 BPM (regular and half-time).
  • Intro, verse, pre-chorus, bridge and fills sections.
