Toontrack has launched a new collection of basslines for the EZbass virtual instrument. Modern Pop EZbass MIDI adds the missing element to the already available series of Modern Pop MIDI packs for EZkeys and drums.

It goes without saying that the bass has a standout role in contemporary pop. In any given track, a solid bassline is likely not only the backbone of the rhythm section, it’s also a melodic pivot around which the entire song revolves. After all, what’s a four-on-the-floor without a bass to back it up? Or a bass drop without a proper bass to begin with?

For this collection, we returned to the EZkeys MIDI pack with the same title to lay down the obvious missing element: basic rhythmic and hook-driven variations of basslines for EZbass. Expect a quintessential collection of funky, groovy and bedrock-solid bass chops for your yet-to-be-written modern pop-, dance- and EDM-inspired tracks.

The MIDI pack is available from the Toontrack store and at distributor PluginFox, priced $29 USD.
