Toontrack has released the Heavy Metal EBX, the seventh title in the company's quickly growing family of EBX expansions for EZbass. It also marks the second release in Toontrack's ongoing Metal Month campaign, which now is in its eleventh consecutive year. Here's what they say:
Any heavy metal arsenal needs a proper power tool for when things are about to get rough – that lead-heavy, wrecking ball-like piece you wheel in when your mix calls for a tone that's straight-out-of-the-furnace molten hot. This is it.
The Heavy Metal EBX comes with a modern-day bass, handpicked for its ability to muster tones to span the entire gamut of heavy metal – from its formative 1970s, through the new wave of British heavy metal and up until today. In addition to the sounds, the Heavy Metal EBX also includes a custom MIDI library as well as a collection of presets offering tones tailored for anything from classically muffled, warm and round to modernly bright, edgy and distorted.
If you're looking for an instrument that offers extreme heavy metal firepower, you've got it.
