Release Date: May 7th, 2012

Equinox Sounds has released 'MIDI Keys: Piano Loops For Film & TV', a  downloadable collection from it's content partner Smash Up The Studio  designed specifically for producers making music for TV, Ads, Jingles  and Film. Performed to the highest standard, this collection contains not just piano loops, but also complete short piano  pieces perfect for TV ads and highly contemporary in style.

It seems whenever you turn on the TV at the moment and the commercial  break comes on, nine times out of ten you will probably hear acoustic  piano pieces, all of a similar style being used by many huge companies  to help sell their products. You cannot beat the sound of a nicely recorded piano played by a pro, with feeling and  expression. This is where this product comes into its own!

With the advent of multi-sampled pianos you no longer need to go to a  top studio with a session guy to record piano tracks on an enormous  budget. There are now some amazing sampled piano plug-ins out there on  the market, all you need is someone who can play!

Smash Up The Studio have once again employed the services of  keyboardist, composer and producer Steve Burton in the making of this  product. The brief was "Can you make it sound like all those piano ads  on TV?" The results were outstanding!

There are chilled loops, atmospheric loops, classical, easy listening,  jazzy, all with one thing in common, you can imagine hearing them on the  TV whether in an advert, show or movie. All loops range between four to  sixteen bars in length and are all key and tempo labelled.

This pack also moves one step further than just a loop pack and also  contains a stunning selection of complete short MIDI piano pieces. To  find work of this type and quality as MIDI is extremely rare and a  producer's dream.

Whilst this MIDI pack is designed and played in the style of acoustic  piano, we must not forget that the versatility of MIDI enables the user  to use any sound they wish and to edit any aspect of the part to their  own requirements, making this product a valuable resource for all producers and songwriters.

Product Contents:

• 51 MIDI piano loops

These loops are all original performances, un-quantised and exactly as  played by the artist, the perfect base on which to build your mix. Key  signature info and tempo is in the file name.

• 22 MIDI short piano pieces

These are complete short piano pieces that are not designed to loop. The  performances were played in real time and do not adhere to any strict  tempo, although there is a guide tempo included in the file name along  with the key signature info.

All content is royalty-free and comes in MIDI format.
