According to Toontrack, EZbass is not just another bass sample library, but something more and more convenient. The instrument promises the same level of convenience and flexibility, as well as quality sound 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 – modern and vintage bass. The developers do not name specific models of guitars, asserting 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, consisting of bass amp and cabinet emulations, as well as effects pedals and rack treatments.
