The Basics

iLok is a copy protection method used by many of our brands.

It has 3 types of activations, iLok USB, iLok Machine, and iLok Cloud.

Different brands/products will offer different iLok methods. iLok USB is always an option, but the availability of iLok Cloud and iLok Machine methods is at the discretion of the software developer.

iLok Account

For all iLok protected products, you will need an iLok account. You can create one for free here:!registration

iLok License Manager

To manage your iLok licenses, there is a dedicated app called iLok License Manager. This app is used to register, activate, and move your licenses between locations.

You can download the latest installers from the iLok website:!home

iLok USB Key

iLok USB

This activation is stored on an iLok 2 or 3 USB key.

It is the best option for portability, if you frequently move between multiple machines, and offline use.

iLok Machine ID

Machine ID

This activation is stored locally on your computer.

While this is a convenient way to work offline, and does not require the additional cost of an iLok USB, there is the risk of a license being lost in the case of a drive failure.

This option also requires extra care when you upgrade to a new computer, the license(s) must be deactivated on your old machine first to ensure you do not lose them.

iLok Cloud

iLok Cloud

This activation is based online, and requires a "cloud session" using the iLok License Manager.

It requires an active internet connection for the entire time you use the plugin(s).

Electric Acoustics

The absolute staple expansion for the singer-songwriter, folk, and acoustic pop.

The Acoustic EBX is an expansion for EZbass featuring a traditional four-string fretted acoustic bass guitar.

Captured with both an external condenser microphone as well as an onboard piezo pickup, it offers the absolute best of both worlds in terms of tone.

On the one hand, you have the natural, deep and inherent timbre of the acoustic instrument itself and, on the other, a direct and almost electric bass-like flavor.

This gives you an EZbass expansion with a sonic breadth that spans the entire range, from timeless acoustic resonance to blunt electric precision.

In addition to the instrument itself, the Acoustic EBX also includes a custom MIDI library as well as a collection of presets covering mix-ready tones tailored for both amped and acoustic scenarios.

If you’re a broad-scope songwriter looking to boost your EZbass with an instrument that can handle anything from backing up just a single acoustic guitar and a voice to holding its ground in a dense full band instrumentation, this one's your winning bet.

Simply put: an acoustic bass never sounded so vibrant and electrifyingly good, until now.


  • A meticulously captured acoustic bass
  • Ideal for use in singer-songwriter, acoustic pop, and folk songs
  • Recorded with both an onboard piezo pickup as well as an external condenser microphone
  • Includes a finger playing style option as well as a set of unique percussive articulations
  • Offering a range from D1 to E4
  • Includes a collection of presets covering a broad range of tones, from dark and earthy to vibrant, bright, and electric
  • Comes with a custom MIDI library tailored for the instrument

The Instrument

With its compact body and mere 23-1/2-inch scale length, the Taylor GS Mini Bass is undeniably small in stature.

But with its deep resonance, distinct attack, and dark, earthy timbre, this instrument is dauntingly huge in any and all respects when it comes to tone.

"When looking for bass for this project, we had our minds set on one that didn't just have great acoustic qualities, it also needed a solid electric tone. This bass really ticked all the boxes and outperformed the lot of basses we tried on every level. This is simply a remarkably versatile and great-sounding instrument." comments Ulf Edlund, EZbass lead sound designer.

The Sounds & Articulations

Seeing as the traditional 'finger' playing style is predominant for this type of instrument, the Acoustic EBX hones in solely on this as its main striking "tool."

In addition, it also includes a set of unique percussive options: striking with fingers on the top and with the thumb on the side of the body of the bass.

Using these classic "unplugged" and troubadour-like traits will allow you to add that extra bit of “acoustic” flair to your performances.

To offer minimal ambient saturation and to ensure the most genuine reproduction of the instrument’s resonance, it was recorded in a small room with carefully measured acoustic treatments.

This, in combination with the onboard pickup, will give you a genuinely warm and vivid sampled instrument that brings out the most of the acoustic and electronic aspects of this bass.

The Presets

The included presets primarily hone in on round, warm and mid-centric settings, giving you a perfect palette of tones that can be traced back to anything from the rocking sound of Tom Petty and Neil Young to the more bare bones-type approach heard in songs by the likes of Emmylou Harris and Gillian Welch.

To further give you the option of easy external processing, clean direct input (DI) presets for both the 'Finger' and 'Thumb Muted' options are of course included.


The included MIDI library covers a basic but broad collection of basslines offering anything from basic to more elaborate and busy variations.

With the onboard MIDI features in EZbass, you can easily customize the MIDI content to fit your already written songs or use it as a creative springboard for your yet-to-be-written pieces.
