MEET YOUR NEW BASS PLAYER.

On May 19, we complete the rhythm section. Say hello
to the latest member of the EZ Line band: EZbass.
Stay tooned for more in the coming weeks.

TWO BASSES.
Two carefully sampled bass guitars
– one vintage and one modern.

SONGWRITING.
Arrange, compose, change and rearrange – without leaving the software.

MIDI.
Comes with bass MIDI for a broad
range of styles.

A BASS PLAYER.
Use drum or keyboard MIDI and have EZbass automatically create matching bass lines.

GRID EDITOR.
Alter the performance or the subtler details of the MIDI using the built-in Grid Editor.

AUDIO TRACKER.
Audio to MIDI conversion based on the same technology found in Superior Drummer 3.

AND MUCH,
MUCH MORE…

No mention of pricing yet, but I would guess it'll be nearer EZkeys than Superior Drummer (that's just a guess though)

Edit: Pricing update
EZbass list pricing: 179 USD / 159 EUR / 1,295 SEK / 135 GBP / 16,500 JPY

Pretty impressive from the demo video.

I hope that MIDI from Audio or MIDI workflow finds its way into EZ Keys, simplifies things a lot.

Put a message on their forum about whether the prices listed are final and whether there would be an intro price or crossgrade price from Ez keys / mix / drums. Was told that there is NO intor or crossgrade pricing. So full retail price for all.

Shame they don't sell on Audio deluxe or Everyplugin, else there would be at least some discount.

I love loyalty me!

Seems a little expensive, hopefully they have a special price for the release

It's cheaper than I was expecting when you look at the RRP of MODO Bass and Trilian.

Yeah, I was surprised to see the pricing. I have purchased it mentally already and hope everyday I wake up is the 19th of May...are we there yet? :)

I do wonder why they didn't call it Superior Bass or something, because I think the feature set looks more rich than the EZ series.

I get paid on the 23rd so those four days after it comes out will be painful. Though maybe I just live off dried pasta for 3 weeks and that'd leave me enough to buy it on release day.

After watching that intro video, I must admit that I'm rather impressed.
It might not have the flexibility of Modo but it does have some rather neat features of its own.
Looking forward to the release.

Was thinking of using this to generate the midi and MODO to render. Might need to write a midi map between the different key switches. We shall see.

So...just one more day now. I am grabbing this on launch day for sure. This is the plugin I've been waiting for for years. :party:

While this is possible, you still need to re-map midi notes telling the MODO what to slap, what to pick and so on. I'm not sure slides are interpreted the same either. Even though I own MODO already (as well as a couple of Ample Sound basses) I think I will mostly use EZbass from no on.
