Toontrack has introduced its latest EZBass MIDI pack West Coast Rock, a new MIDI expansion featuring basslines inspired the AOR and West Coast sound.
Pioneered by acts like Toto, Christopher Cross, Foreigner and Journey, a new breed of slick and radio-friendly rock emerged out of the West Coast of America in the ’70s. It’s since been labeled yacht rock, soft rock, the West Coast Sound, adult-oriented rock or simply AOR, but regardless of what it may or may not have been called, it started a new chapter in music history.
For this MIDI pack, we returned to its sibling for EZkeys and used it as a foundation to create the perfect complement for EZbass. Expect perfectly crafted bass grooves full of creative chord runs, twists, turns and all the other signifying traits that made this new wave of rock top the charts and fill arenas to the brim.
If you’re looking to write some slick-sounding rock songs where the bass plays a key role, this one’s for you.
