Toontrack is finally letting everyone add a little more acoustic to their tracks, thanks to the Upright EBX.

The Upright EBX is an upright bass (standup bass, contrabass, etc.) expansion of Toontrack’s popular EZbass software that features a Corsini Elite bass recorded using an onboard piezo pickup, as well as five different microphone configurations. The Upright EBX includes a collection of presets covering a broad range of tones for various genres, styles and microphone blends, as well as a custom MIDI library tailored for the instrument.

“Since we were after a plucked tone and a bass for a modern and ‘acoustic’ approach rather than a classical, a flatback seemed like the first logical step,” said Magnus Melkersson, EZbass lead R&D technician. “However, the quality of an upright’s tone is a product of all of its parts combined – from the machine heads down to the tailgut – and the Corsini just sounded and felt right through and through.”

The Upright EBX is available here for $79.
