“Bass players need to be treated with more respect and also I think that more time should be spent on finding a good bass player.” – Eyal Levi
If you’re a musician looking to get your home studio off the ground, this show is for you! Eyal Levi and Ryan “Fluff” Bruce sit down to talk shop about all the things they wish they knew when they were getting started.
In this episode they focus on an incredibly important but often overlooked part of any metal mix: the bass guitar. Some of what they cover: why bass is the secret ingredient to great metal guitar tone, some tricks for recording bass (it’s not quite the same as guitar), and how to use synth and MIDI bass guitars for reference.
