Toontrack EZbass is a bass guitar VST (Virtual Studio Technology) plugin for macOS. EZbass runs as an AU, and VST plugin. EZbass VST plugin can be used with all major digital audio workstations (DAW) including Ableton Live, Logic Pro, Cubase, Pro Tools, and others.
They say that no single software instrument is often all things to all or any people. What one person loves a few plugins, another hates. And the other way around. I feel EZbass does have something for everybody. For the beginner, it’ll hold your hand all the way. Drag and drop an audio or MIDI guitar or piano part, and EZbass will do the remainder. If you would like to customize it, you’ll quickly start with the knobs and menus if you’re uncomfortable editing the particular notes.
For experienced users, it is easy to access all the articulations when programming your parts. As a not inexperienced programmer, I even have to mention that with the right input, EZbass provided me with exciting parts I might not have thought abreast of my very own, replete with perfectly placed articulations. I will be able to not be ignoring this aspect of EZbass once I use it.
I think EZbass may be a big win for Toontrack. I really like using EZ Keys – except for all the incorrect reasons. I really like it just because I prefer the sample set, and it’s light on the CPU. Same thing with EZ Drummer – I really like it for all the incorrect reasons. It’s my goto drum instrument for an easy playable choice of great-sounding acoustic drum kits. Not for the pattern libraries. I can see now that, for me, additionally to the great-sounding basses, the EZbass grooves’ and customizability are going to be an enormous draw.
