Description : According to Toontrack, EZbass is not just another library of bass samples, but something more and more convenient. The instrument promises the same level of convenience and flexibility, sound quality and realism found throughout the EZline range. Like other libraries in the series, Virtual Bassist combines MIDI work with advanced bass writing skills for a variety of styles of music.
The library includes two instruments – a modern bass and a vintage bass. The developers do not name specific models of guitars, claiming that the sound of the library relies more on physical signal modeling, rather than samples. One way or another, the vintage model hints at the sound of Fender Precision Bass, and the modern one – at the Schecter bass. Both virtual basses are five-stringed.
The library supports various articulations, including legato, vibrato, slides, hummers and pools, harmonics and other sound production techniques. The EZbass has a built-in effects section, which consists of bass amp and cabinet emulations, as well as effects pedals and rack treatments.
There is also an extensive groove library. All MIDI parts are recorded with the utmost attention to the nuances of the performance. The grooves are divided by style, with the library engine adapting the grooves to the key of the project. The library of examples is large, but knowing the politics of Toontrack, you can expect an active bombardment of additions with MIDI grooves and new basses in the near future.
