I know there's lots of time and I'm definately not rushing anyone but I'm curious how everyone is doing with BassIAB II?
I've got a bass line recorded. I'm happy with the overall feel but I'm still experimenting with the tone, level and placement. I'm also trying to get an outro that I like. I think a little something on bass would go well with the drum solo but I haven't found anything that works yet. Also, my intro is a little plain so I'm going to play around with a few other ideas there as well.
I tried recording a dry signal as well as an effected signal and mixing the two so I could change the amount of FX during the song. It didn't work though. My articulation isn't accurate enough so the two signals got muddy. : (
Here's a tip. For bass placement in the mix try 10 to 20% right of center. I left room for the bass opposite the brass. Centered will work too but if you want to pan a little that's where i'd suggest.
BTW, I'm assuming we are going to put up our versions as we produce them rather than wait until everyone is finished right? Is everyone Ok with that? I realize as versions are posted we run the risk of being influenced by other lines. I guess you can just not listen if you are worried about it. Comments?
