Toontrack has announced the release of an all-new EZbass expansion featuring an acoustic bass as well as MIDI and a broad range of mix-ready presets.

Ideal for use in singer-songwriter, acoustic pop and folk songs, the Acoustic EBX features the sounds of a meticulously captured traditional four-string fretted acoustic bass guitar.

Captured with both an external condenser microphone as well as an onboard piezo pickup, it offers the absolute best of both worlds in terms of tone. On the one hand, you have the natural, deep and inherent timbre of the acoustic instrument itself and, on the other, a direct and almost electric bass-like flavor. This gives you an EZbass expansion with a sonic breadth that spans the entire range – from timeless acoustic resonance to blunt electric precision.

In addition to the instrument itself, the Acoustic EBX also includes a custom MIDI library as well as a collection of presets covering mix-ready tones tailored for both amped and acoustic scenarios.

If you’re a broad-scope songwriter looking to boost your EZbass with an instrument that can handle anything from backing up just a single acoustic guitar and a voice to holding its ground in a dense full band instrumentation, this one’s your winning bet. Simply put: an acoustic bass never sounded so vibrant and electrifyingly good – until now.

Priced $89 USD, the Acoustic EBX for EZbass is available from the Toontrack store and at distributor PluginFox.
