ADDING BASS TO YOUR SONGS HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER.


The concept of our EZ Line products has been clear since day one: to give you, the songwriter, not only products that make your music sound great, but also the tools you need in order to create music. Creativity is the hallmark at the front and center of the EZ Line design. EZbass, of course, is no different.

THE BASSICS.


The ‘Bass’ view is the default screen that launches when you start the program. It gives you the visual representation of your selected instrument, a real-time display of the bass notes being played in your performance as well as access to the ‘Effects’ and ‘Tuning’ controls.

The ’Song Track’ is static regardless of which view you’re currently in but can of course be collapsed and hidden away completely. This is your MIDI hub for anything related to organizing the layout of your song or bass performance. From here, you can also access several fundamental features.



YOUR PERSONAL BASS PLAYER.


At the heart of EZbass is the MIDI. It includes a wealth of different playing styles for all common genres and was designed to give you the broadest possible palette of options. Ultimately, you decide how the bass performs on your song. Of course, all included MIDI can be infinitely customized – without you having to leave the program.



REFINE YOUR BASSLINE.


Simply double-click a MIDI block in the ‘Song Track’ to enter the ‘Grid Editor.’ From there, you can alter articulations, adjust timing, fine-tune velocities, manually write parts and much more.



DRUMS & KEYS LIKE MAGIC.


Have a drum or keyboard MIDI file that you need a matching bassline for? Just drag and drop it in EZbass and it will automatically create a matching performance. This is extremely powerful for getting a good starting point, quick and easy.



TURN ANYTHING INTO A BASS.


The ‘Audio Tracker’ was designed to mainly handle monophonic guitar or bass audio, but it also has a deep understanding for rhythmic material. This means that you can use an already recorded guitar, bass or percussive performance, import it to EZbass and have it seamlessly ‘translate’ it to MIDI. You can even record your own audio, right inside EZbass!



THE SOUNDS.


EZbass includes two fundamentally different instruments, both picked to complement one another and paint the broadest possible sonic scope. Each bass was sampled with the same attention to detail and quality that has made Toontrack spearhead the drum sampling industry for 20 years and counting.

THE MODERN BASS.


The ‘Modern’ sound library features an Alembic* bass, a high-end American brand endorsed by many top players around the world. It was captured with both fingers, pick and slap options.

“When we started the EZbass project, we were looking for an instrument that could produce the most versatile and well-rounded tone possible,” comments Magnus Melkersson, EZbass lead R&D technician. “We scoured the market and tried dozens of basses before we finally landed on this one. I have played bass all my life and I have personally never come across an instrument more dynamic, expressive or full of life than this one. It truly is a beautiful instrument that embodies the entire frequency range you need in a bass. It was the perfect choice for the ‘Modern’ library.”

One thing that particularly sets this instrument apart from other basses is the pickups – single-coils with an active hum-cancelling coil mounted in between. This gives the instrument the tonal single-coil characteristics but leaves out any inherent noise. Both the bridge and neck pickups were sampled separately, allowing you to use each pickup separately or seamlessly blend between them. In other words, it’s literally like having two basses in one.

THE VINTAGE BASS.


The ‘Vintage’ library features a classic Fender* Jazz bass, an instrument used across all genres since the 1960s and one that still to this day remains one of the world’s most iconic bass guitars.

“As a contrast to the ‘Modern’ bass, we wanted an instrument that was fundamentally different in all aspects – from tone, frequency range and pickups to overall feel,” says Ulf Edlund, one of the lead EZbass sound designers. “This bass has a completely different set of harmonics compared to the ‘Modern.’ Although it sits perfectly in any pop, rock or even metal track, it truly shines in any context that calls for something more mellow. I would pick this bass over anything else for a jazz, blues or country song.”

This bass was hot-wired to offer the same type of flexibility with the pickup options as the ‘Modern’ bass, meaning you can use each pickup separately or seamlessly blend between them.

ARTICULATIONS.
PICK, THUMP, SLAP, POP!


EZbass delivers the most all-encompassing set of articulations you need in order to produce stunningly real performances for anything from subtle jazz to extreme metal. The main tools of the ‘Modern’ bass include fingers, pick and slap while the ‘Vintage’ bass includes fingers and pick.

PRESETS.


With EZbass, a great tone is merely a mouse slap away. The presets in EZbass cover a broad range of expertly crafted tones based on amp and cab simulation as well as on the same complex network of effects used behind the scenes in all EZ Line products.

TAKE CONTROL.
Fine-tune your bass tone with intuitive controls.

SUB-BASS
Two synthesized sine tones for each preset.

DIRECT IN.
Use the DI preset option to process externally.
