EBX CLASSIC ROCK
The Toontrack Classic Rock EBX is an expansion for EZbass featuring a meticulously captured 1960s bass. Picked for its optimal qualities, this bass embodies all the wants and needs you’d be looking for in a workhorse of a rock instrument: the thick low end, the soaring harmonics and that bright and articulate sustain that cuts through in any mix without being overpowering. Simply put, this is a bass that oozes rock at the strike of a single note.
Aside from the actual instrument, the EBX also includes a broad selection of presets for all tools and striking options as well as a custom collection of MIDI, making this much more than just a bass sample library – it’s a well of ideas and a true toolbox of sound.
Can you imagine an earth-shattering groove without the raw power of the bass? Without that deafening rumble that perfectly interlocks with the drums and melds everything into the thunderous wonder that spells classic rock? Of course not. Welcome to your new go-to bass.

The presets in the Classic Rock EBX were engineered and customized for each striking tool and recorded option. Each collection of presets involves amp and cab simulation as well as various degrees of saturation and effects. In order to give you full flexibility to use any outside processing, DI options are available for each recorded configuration.
“Going in, our aim was to engineer presets that covered as much ground as possible without straying from what’s uniquely classic rock. I think we managed to create a very broad and telling picture of the genre, offering a library of anything from clean to heavily distorted tones,” comments Ulf Edlund, lead EZbass sound designer.
The MIDI covers playing variations, riffs, endings, song parts and fill options in various lengths and intensities. It was inspired by classic rock songs of the 1960s and 1970s and presents the perfect complement to the sounds.
The bass in the Classic Rock EBX was captured with the same scrutiny as the instruments included with the core EZbass library and covers all the subtle articulations you need in order to produce stunningly real performances.
In addition to the samples that were recorded using fingers, it also includes two separate striking options for pick – one captured near the bridge and one near the neck. This provides you with three fundamentally different tonal characteristics for the same instrument – from round and mellow to bright and pristinely distinct.
