Toontrack has announced the release of an all-new EZbass expansion inspired by the Americana genre and tailored for anything from subtle to loud, full-on electric rock band instrumentations.

Americana EBX brings the sounds of a meticulously captured late-’60s electric bass guitar, including finger and muted thumb options as well as a broad set of articulations for both.

Although it’s had its foothold deeply rooted in the folk, gospel, blues, soul, country, jazz and rock songwriting tradition, Americana music has kept evolving and become a huge umbrella under which anything that doesn’t quite fit the commercial country music mold can thrive. This EBX was tailored to bring you a workhorse-type expansion that functions in all these scenarios – for anything from small and acoustic setups to full-on electric rock instrumentations.

The expansion includes a broad collection of presets as well as a custom MIDI library of basslines.

The Americana EBX is available from the Toontrack store and at distributors PluginFox and Time+Space, priced $79 USD.
