Description : EZbass is a virtual bass instrument with great sounding and fundamental features that make it easy to add bass to your tracks. The instrument promises the same level of convenience and flexibility, sound quality and realism found throughout the EZline range. The Virtual Bassist combines MIDI work with advanced bass writing skills for a variety of styles of music.
Sample libraries support a variety of 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.
EZbass 1.1.2 is now available to download using the Product Manager or from the “My Products” area in your Toontrack account. Please note that version 1.1.2 is required for the support of EZbass products released from this point forward (Q4 2021).
The window being made very large vertically should no longer cause a crash.
The VST3 did not work well in Cubase 7 – most output channels would be silent, or they would become silent if you changed presets, for example.
In the VST3 in Studio One, the parameters (effect knobs) would incorrectly become reset to their default values when a Studio One project / song was opened.
The VST3 would immediately crash when added in Bitwig Studio.
Some slide-outs could not be heard, if the end note was too long. Such notes are now fixed when a project is loaded. The length of slide-out end notes can no longer be changed in Edit Play Style or in the Grid Editor.
Exporting MIDI could in some rare cases skip certain ‘note off’ events.
Adding a MIDI file with a ‘note on’ exactly at the end would create a zero-length note. Interacting with that in the grid editor would cause a crash.
The song track would not play during “pre-roll” playback in Cubase.
The Tuning section being open or closed was not preserved in projects and it would always get closed by changing libraries or changing the GUI scale.
For some of the core EZbass MIDI, the chords became wrong when the grooves were dragged to the song track.
The piano roll is now allowed to be vertically smaller than the grid editor area, so the zoom level will no longer be increased if the window is made very large.
Making a note longer in a block that had been resized would sometimes cause a crash.
A few potential crashes related to chord positions / lengths have been fixed.
The piano roll is now allowed to be vertically smaller than the area it is in, so the zoom level will no longer be increased if the window is made very large.
Notes would in some cases disappear when quantize was used.
Making a non-legato slide between notes of the same note value in the tracker should no longer cause a crash.
The standalone can now use ASIO devices with a buffer size larger than 2048 samples.
