I love the deep sound of gongs and have bought some expensive plugins, virtual instruments, and vsts with gong sounds. This is one of the best and most accurate sample sets i have found, and a bargain at that.
EZbass sounds great but does not - in my opinion - live up to Toontrack's EZ line of applications.
I am a loyal and happy Toontrack customer. My Toontrack product manager tells me I own 93 Toontrack products. I have had nothing but great results with EZdrummer 2, EZkeys, and EZmix 2.
I do not find EZbass easy to use at all. I've watched the Groove3 course for it, and while I found the course informative, I never reached a point where EZbass was anything other than frustrating for me to use. My dream bass player is probably Adam Clayton, so it's not like my expectations are inordinately high, either.
I tried importing a chord progression from EZkeys and got puzzling and unusable results. I tried programming by hand and found it frustrating and unrewarding (and unusable). I tried playing in parts on the keyboard and concluded that if I had to do that, I'd rather be using something else.
I am aware of and happy for the MANY satisfied users of EZbass.
One final observation: The exclusion of a simple (or even complicated) way to create parts exclusively for a four string bass - as opposed to five string - is mind-bogglingly inexplicable. If I were to list my top seven thousand albums of all time, none of them would feature a five string bass.
I encourage other EZbass users - especially satisfied ones - to review this instrument.
Really good Jupiter emulation. Huge variety of analogue sounds from keys, to lead, to bass, and especially pads. Sounds very powerful using dual and unison modes! Audio demo: https://youtu.be/zWByaiNBRBM
Reminds me of the days when sga1566 and La Petite Excite was my gotto saturators. It have some similar characteristics of those 2 just mentioned but with much clearer sound and sharp digital fidelity. You can also create some crazy dynamics with the HP/LP filtering, it sounds to me like it starts self-oscillate or something.
Edit: oh wow I just read thats the same dev who made La Petite Excite made BPB Saturator.
It's basic, full of capabilities and quite simple as long as you use the presets.
It's much more complicated without but it's only because you have millions of possibilities. It's quite hard to meet the sound you have in mind but it's amazing to experiment new sounds and unusual vibes.
