Description: You can install from scratch or roll on top of the previous version from V.REZkeys 2, latest version + EZK2-SessionOrgan. Download other libraries separately if you need them.
There is a MIDI library – it is built into the installer and will be installed automatically in the specified directory in the Sound destination line.

Changes in version 2.0.5 :
EZkeys 2.0.5 is now available to download using the Product Manager or from the ‘My Products’ area in your Toontrack account. Please note that version 2.0.5 is required for the support of EZkeys sound expansions (EKXs) released from this point forward (Q2 2024).

Session Organ EKX
Bandmate and the Grooves tab now have an “Adjust for Organ” button/function, which can make non-organ MIDI sound better with the organ.
The Velocity controls in Edit Play Style, Bandmate and the Grooves tab are replaced by Expression controls when Session Organ is loaded.
In Session Organ, starting Song Track playback in the middle of long notes will start playing those notes.
Pedals Drawbar 2 (Fundamental) has changed CC mapping from CC34 to CC35.
Tooltips for drawbar preset keys in the Grid Editor now say the preset name.

Song Track
The Import MIDI dialog now has an option to apply current MIDI Input settings.
Visual feedback is shown on MIDI blocks when CC is recorded.

Grooves Tab
Some rearrangement at the top of the Grooves tab: “Song Key” was moved next to “Tempo” and “Show Web Shop MIDI” was moved to the right.

Grid Editor
In the context menu, “Select All Notes” was renamed to “Select All” and got an icon.
“Merge” has been added to the context menu.
Merge can now be used when notes on different rows are selected, to merge notes that are on the same rows.

CC Editor
For MIDI blocks with no active CC nodes, the latent CC value is now shown with a horizontal line in the CC editor.
When CC curves are edited, EZkeys now avoids merging blocks, if possible, so that no ramp is created between the last node of the a block and the first node of the following block.
Double-clicking with the Pencil Tool no longer inserts two nodes, and a click on an existing node now removes it.

Grooves in the Riffs folders in the Session Organ MIDI will always pass through the tempo filter.

Fixed several cases of notes getting stuck ringing.
Trying to import an EZkeys 1 project when Session Organ EKX was loaded would cause a crash.
Now also for Session Organ: a green dot is shown on the MIDI In/Out menu in the bottom right corner if the MIDI Input settings are not in the default state.

Song Track
“Automatically Loop Selection” made the Loop button not work when no block was selected.
When “Automatically Loop Selection” is on and a block becomes selected, the playhead will now jump to the beginning of that block, as intended.
When “Restrict Recording to Loop Area” is on, the red recording area will only appear where recording is really being done, i.e., inside the loop area.
Recording CC over blocks that already contain such CC has been fixed/improved.
Wrong initial state could be recorded for Rotary Speed (in Session Organ).
Recording over existing blocks now sets the Song Part Type to that of the first old block instead of always to Verse.
When playback would reach a new MIDI block (where playback did not start), CC values to the left of the first nodes were not applied.
Adding MIDI blocks with the Pencil Tool did not properly update the Grid Editor to show all the new notes (unless Session Organ was being used).

Edit Play Style
Using Amount on a block without any notes would cause a crash.

Grid Editor
Merged notes could get unmerged if a chord over the block was changed.
It was not possible to merge notes in different MIDI blocks. The blocks now become merged.
“Paste Timing Settings” would apply an incorrect swing value (unless it was 0).
Turning on Solo for a Session Organ manual no longer mutes the notes that are currently playing in the soloed channel(s).
In Session Organ, changing channels for a note (through the Organ Part submenu in the context menu) no longer changes which channel is active for editing. Also, the Organ Part submenu is now disabled if no notes are selected.
