The Modern Bass
The ‘Modern’ sound library features an Alembic* bass, a high-end American brand endorsed by many top players around the world. It was captured with both fingers, pick and slap options.
“When we started the EZbass project, we were looking for an instrument that could produce the most versatile and well- rounded tone possible,” comments Magnus Melkersson, EZbass lead R&D technician. “We scoured the market and tried dozens of basses before we finally landed on this one. I have played bass all my life and I have personally never come across an instrument more dynamic, expressive or full of life than this one. It truly is a beautiful instrument that embodies the entire frequency range you need in a bass. It was the perfect choice for the ‘Modern’ library.”
One thing that particularly sets this instrument apart from other basses is the pickups – single-coils with an active hum-cancelling coil mounted in between. This gives the instrument the tonal single-coil characteristics but leaves out any inherent noise. Both the bridge and neck pickups were sampled separately, allowing you to use each pickup separately or seamlessly blend between them. In other words, it’s literally like having two basses in one.
The Vintage Bass
The ‘Vintage’ library features a classic Fender* Jazz bass, an instrument used across all genres since the 1960s and one that still to this day remains one of the world’s most iconic bass guitars.
“As a contrast to the ‘Modern’ bass, we wanted an instrument that was fundamentally different in all aspects – from tone, frequency range and pickups to overall feel,” says Ulf Edlund, one of the lead EZbass sound designers. “This bass has a completely different set of harmonics compared to the ‘Modern.’ Although it sits perfectly in any pop, rock or even metal track, it truly shines in any context that calls for something more mellow. I would pick this bass over anything else for a jazz, blues or country song.”
This bass was hot-wired to offer the same type of flexibility with the pickup options as the ‘Modern’ bass, meaning you can use each pickup separately or seamlessly blend between them.
