I'm entranced by the interaction of the wonderful sax(?) part at 0:24 with the rhythm parts. It seems to have been added by Rob but he doesn't mention it in his mix...odd! I wanted to give a feeling of breathing to this, or maybe heavy surf. "Ommmmmmmm......"


I think you're referring to the guitar sound. Like this a lot sax to eventually come?+2

Wade I'm notoriously slow at getting tracks back, so I'm afraid the wait could be a long time. +1

GrooveEnth Yes I think you're right that it is guitar though a combination of the phrasing, timbre, and processing (with low attack) makes it sound a lot like a soprano sax to me even when I -try_ to hear it as guitar! :) Anyway, if you can add _real_ sax at your leisure, even better :) +1
Liking this alot. The slide it cool, but that tone is intriguing, how'd you get that sound, its very cool ! :)+1

GrooveEnth Thanks Rob. It's patch on my Zoom 506 that says "PAD type synth bass sound". It's got some overdrive to it (I dialled this back a bit from the default settings but you can hear it on the first low F) as well as a touch of flange/chorus and that 'defretter' effect to my ears. The main part is just the sound straight out of the boxm, uncompressed with a slight bump at 125Hz. Then there's a lower volume copy of the same part _very_ heavily compressed (8:1) to keep the low 'drone' going in the background. And of course there's the slides and slurs and I put a *lot* of vibrato on the final note after the slide! Blimey, you would think I put of lot of thought into this but really it's just finding a sound and tweaking it and the line until I get a result I like :) Still intrigued by your lead 'sax' line. <3 +1

GrooveEnth Wow -thanks for listening so closely WD - wasn't sure I could even hear the slide on the main riff after I eq'd it or maybe you mean the little 'sighs' like at 1:10 and 1:40 (they're my favourite parts of the bass line!) +2

WhiteDrum55 The main riff slides come through in my monitors and headphones. Nice! +2

GrooveEnth Thanks Bud :-) Just went to listen to your party-remix of "Aisle Dance" - I think this is one you need for the morning after hangover! +1

GrooveEnth Thanks Slin - definitely pleased with this one. Had a feeling I wanted to re-use the 'groans' from the "The Awakening" and it ended up fitting pretty well after a bit of tweaking :) +1

GrooveEnth Thanks mate :) +0
GrooveEnth, you always do something original or unexpected - and always fits the track! It does have this other worldly peaceful vibe...perhaps a Yogi on the beach meditating?? A classic add. :)+1

GrooveEnth Thanks Paul - that's a really great thing to hear. I always _try_ to find something that's a bit 'me' but bass in some ways is quiet a challenging instrument to do that on (at least, if you're also trying to pay lip-service to fulfilling the functional role of the instrument). Very happy with this one though. Only just realised listening back to it that the synth at the end does sound like the surf running back across a pebble beach so perfect! +1

pconey Yes the synth sounds like surf and pebbles, but did you notice my scraping sound on the drums to mimic feet walking on sand @ 1:02? ;) +1
October 10 2017 17:45:48
GrooveEnth Ah - I'd put it down to some kind of gated reverb/distortion but yes, it is cool! :) +1

pconey I have plenty tricks up my sleeve Mr Groove.... ;) +0
