Toontrack has introduced a new MIDI expansion featuring a broad collection of disco- and funk-inspired basslines for the EZbass virtual instrument.
Priced $29 USD, the Disco EZbass MIDI pack covers 4/4 playing variations in straight feel.
Although the bell bottom pants and jumpsuit days are long gone, disco is just as alive and well today as it was some 40 odd years ago – it just changed venues. Have a listen to Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake or Madonna – to name a few – and you’ll know. For this MIDI pack, we turned to its sibling for EZkeys and used it as a foundation to create the perfect complement for EZbass. Expect a groovy, funky, rhythmic and double-note-infused overload of octave-ridden basslines covering all the signifying traits of disco bass as we know it. If you’re looking to spice up your creative toolset with some feverishly infectious grooves, here you go!
Also available is the Mastering III EZmix Pack, an all-new expansion featuring 50 presets for EZmix 2 centered solely around settings for mastering.
The magic of mastering can’t be overstated. Done right, it’s that inexplicable alchemy that transforms a song from rough to broadcast-ready without infringing the slightest on the integrity or dynamics of its original mix. No easy feat and by all means an art and a craft in itself. That’s why this EZmix pack is a great starting point.
Organized in three different categories, each with a distinct end goal or workflow in mind, this pack will make it easy to find what you are looking for, creating your own mastering chains or fixing a potential issue that you’ve singled out as a problem in your mix. If you’re looking to make sure your mixes sound as good as possible to anyone and anywhere, this is your new secret recipe. Launch your EZmix 2 and get started mastering faster and compressing less – but all with better success!
The EZmix pack is priced $39 USD at the Toontrack store and from distributors PluginFox and Best Service.
