This brings us to Day 3 of live tracking for our new record. Today I recorded bass for the batch of songs that I’ve been working on the last two days. I used a Fender American Highway One Precision Bass into an Ampeg SVT4 Tube Bass Head. I ran the head straight into the MBox. As I mentioned before I worked on some of the more upbeat, loud songs first to take advantage of that nice bright, springy “new string” tone. I went with XL Medium Gauge Nickelwound strings.
I also added a couple of keyboard parts with our Alesis Micron Synthesizer. Check out the specifics below. Tomorrow will be more bass.
