Thanks so much.
I am curious to how you sequenced the bass in Smoked Glass and Chrome.
Is it a sequence on an analog sequencer? I wouldn't have come up with that by playing it on a keyboard. Sounds "programmed". Is it?
I can't remember what I did it on but it was almost certainly played and then edited in the sequencer. I always play bass parts in by hand.
I'm not yet fully happy about the basses in my tracks.
In a fully digital environment - softsynths/samplers and plugins, do you have some tips? I am looking for some characteristic bass sound that I can call "my" bass.
A lot of the times I use the basses in Trilian.Do you think that is going to make my basses sound banal, as it's what "everybody" uses?What should I go for...the MS20 plugin, or any softsynth?I have the Alchemy synth, but I don't like it much for bass.
I make my basses go through the default bass amp of Logic.I have Guitar Rig but the little I have used it I haven't seen a significant advantage over the Logic bass amp. Some other plugin that could be good for that?
As for EQ, I have the default Logic one and the Waves SSL one.The latter seems to be of much higher quality for everything, but if you have more tips on EQing bass...I guess you use your mixing console for that.Do you ever EQ your bass with plugins, and do you do that at a mixing stage or while composing?
Just bought a pair of Yamaha HS80M monitors. They are connected to my Macbook Pro via a small Behringer Xenyx 302 usb mixer. Does the interface they're connected to matter? What changes if I connect them through an Apogee Duet? Of course the purpose is to make music and make decent mixes of my tracks.Ott responded on 09/08/2013
