Toontrack Music

Toontrack has updated EZbass to v1.0.5.



  • Added support for authorizing and using EBXs (EZbass sound expansions).
  • The CCs for modulation, damping and sustain can no longer be used for MIDI Learn.
  • Tooltips for GUI elements, e.g. buttons, will no longer appear after you have clicked on the element (until you move the mouse away from it and back).

Song Track:

  • When exporting to audio, (2) /(3) /etc. is automatically appended to the file names if the files already exist.

Grooves Tab:

  • In Tap2Find, a new button lets you search while keeping the active filters. The main search button clears the filters.
  • Buttons and knobs in Tap2Find have been rearranged a bit.

Grid Editor:

  • "Smart Snap" has been changed into two separate options: "Magnet Snap" and "Snap to Notes.".
  • Added a header to the absolute/relative section of the "Snap to Grid" submenu of Options.
  • Added a "Timing" header to the Note menu.
  • The note pitch curve is now drawn in white instead of green.

Audio Tracker:

  • Added support for dragging audio from Cubase.
  • Added snap to grid/transient settings.
  • Slide note selection area has been adjusted so you need to click on the actual notes to select a slide.
  • Moving notes with keyboard shortcuts now triggers preview.
  • Added selection rectangle in the regions view (Amount of Notes) for selection of notes.
  • Pressing backspace/delete can no longer remove a region. A remove region button was added instead.
  • Shift-click in Amount of Notes, Articulations and the grid view now selects all notes in between the clicked one and the latest selected.
  • Added grid lines to the velocity and amount views.
  • The audio input signal in standalone can now be seen on the audio LED in the tracker (when recording or preparing to record).
  • Audio waveform drawing is faster now.
  • Selecting with rectangle in Articulations and Amount views is faster/smoother now.

Bug Fixes


  • The attack sounds are now also included in the palm mute.
  • The attack sounds now also follow the selected tuning.
  • After loading a preset, the cent tuning was reset, although the GUI value was correct.
  • The main tabs were put on top of the MIDI Learn text and shadow.
  • If the GUI is closed while a modal dialog is shown, the faded background no longer covers the interface when the GUI is opened again.
  • When a moved EZbass sound library folder is located by the user at startup, the current project (the loaded project or default project) is now applied to the found sound libraries.
  • Improved parsing of multi-track MIDI files.

Song Track:

  • Fixed some crashes on the song track when opening menus in certain scenarios.
  • Follow Host should no longer incorrectly get turned off with the claim that the same MIDI is coming from the DAW as is present on the Song Track – if such MIDI has been deleted from the DAW.
  • When exporting to audio, the cancel button did not work as intended when sounds were being loaded.
  • Dragging from the song track outside the plug-in window and back made a copy instead of just moving the dragged item(s).
  • Some minor adjustments/fixes to the GUI on the song track and the minimized song view.
  • On Mac, ctrl-click now works to open the song track context menu.
  • If a MIDI loop was added from the Audio Tracker, the notes would sometimes not be visible until the user did something to make the loops be redrawn, e.g. zoom.
  • Auto-transitions won't be applied if there is no following chord to transition to.
  • Adding a MIDI block with damping after one without would sometimes add damping to the preceding block as well.
  • Changing bass note on a chord could make the bass note end up in the wrong octave.
  • Correcting a chord to a different bass note could end up moving notes instead of just correcting.
  • The "–" does not show up on a chord if the current notes fit into the current chord (like D notes on a D chord in C major).
  • Importing a MIDI file to the song track now also creates chords and a song part.
  • The song track tempo text editor will no longer show the tracker tempo if the tracker is the player in focus.
  • The "Drag groove here" text could become visible when undoing stuff on the song track.
  • The menu item "Add Chords to Chord Track" is now disabled if no chords can be added to the chord panel.
  • Changing groove in Replace MIDI mode could cause a clicking sound.
  • When copying or inserting a new MIDI block on the track, the copied block could get the wrong damping values if no damping values existed on the track.
  • Time signatures, key signature and tempos were not copied when duplicating a song track.
  • Transitions were removed when a loop was moved or copy/pasted on the track.
  • Chords in recorded MIDI were always analyzed in the key of C.
  • Notes on the red record block were not always visible when jumping back in the timeline while recording.

Edit Play Style:

  • Changing Amount no longer causes a crash when a chord begins just before the end of a bar.
  • Adjusting Amount could lead to all CCs being duplicated on the selected MIDI blocks.

Drums & Keys Tab:

  • Replace MIDI mode now shows the selected card in orange.
  • The "Replace MIDI" and "Export to Current Song Track" menu entries are now disabled in Replace MIDI mode.
  • The "Recent MIDI Files from Project" list in the "Select MIDI File" menu was saved in projects but not loaded correctly if the paths contained special characters.

Grooves Tab:

  • Running a sync on the User MIDI folder could cause a crash.
  • The result view is now always scrolled to the top when new filters are selected.
  • After a search is complete, set keyboard focus on the result view so user can use keyboard arrows to navigate the results again.
  • Clicking/dragging/etc. in the result view while a search was in progress could cause a crash.
  • The "Search with Current Filters" button in Tap2Find was not enabled in "Record Melody" mode.

Grid Editor:

  • Inserting a CC value when no MIDI is available on the song track caused a crash.
  • Right-click-drag in the Pitch editor no longer causes a crash.
  • Editing one CC curve would remove all other CC curves.
  • The vertical insert lines when using pen tool didn't sync between grid and CC editor (with snap on).
  • Inserting CC nodes didn't always insert them where the vertical line suggested (with snap on).
  • The vertical line that follows the mouse when the Split Tool is selected didn't always show correctly where the split would happen if you'd click on a note (with snap on).
  • Extending a MIDI block in the grid is only done as far as necessary, not a bar extra.
  • On Mac, cmd-alt-click to split a note did not always work correctly.
  • Legato was sometimes incorrectly applied when polyphonic selections were copied.
  • Loading a project by double-clicking a project file and then browsing for missing libraries did not load the requested library in the project.

Audio Tracker:

  • Fix for user-added notes sometimes disappearing.
  • A tempo map is now included when dragging MIDI from the tracker.
  • The tempo text is now updated continuously.
  • Regions are no longer removed when recording over a previous recording.
  • Various graphics fixes to zooming, grid lines and numbers.
  • Various fixes to things not being updated when undoing.
  • The waveforms are now drawn on top of the supporting grid lines.
  • The tracker playhead and loop area now snap only to the time bar.
  • The play button in the tracker was enabled even though no audio input sender was connected.
  • The tracker insert/remove line was not drawn correctly in scales other than 100%.
  • The tracker grid could stay small if zoomed out and the window was resized.
  • The preview MIDI DnD block was not updated when loading a project or editing in the tracker grid.
  • Recording again in a tracker file that has sample rate other than 44100 Hz now works as intended.
  • Drag and drop of audio from Cubase should now work with any special characters in the file names.
  • Changing octave with shortcut now plays preview.
  • Preview note off times are now reset so that changing back to a note that was recently played does not cut off that note early.
  • Recording again and thereby making the audio longer did not create any notes after the original length.
  • The "Recent Files from Project" list in the "Select Audio File" menu was not cleared when a project was loaded, meaning it could grow very large and have duplicate entries.


  • Custom keyboard shortcut bindings that are displayed with non-ASCII characters (for example some language-specific characters) would not be correctly displayed after restarting EZbass. If you have such bindings from before, you can fix how they are displayed by rebinding them.
