The bass was recorded direct link out of the F1-X. Setting after SF-2 so it's colored.
Each instrument on his channel. Guitars miked. I don't think the guitar had a DI-box too.
It was recorded via a Mac-pro book to a external harddisk.
Afterwards mixed and I have to admit that I had a good sound with the "A" bass in the first place.

Graeme;

This probably isn't it, but I thought I would mention it just in case. On some boards there is a low frequency filter switch on each channel that rolls off starting at around 50Hz (especially useful on vocal mic channels). If the person running your PA has that switch turned on for the bass guitar channel, that might result in "bass-light" output. Just speculating.

Also, if you are micing the bass cabs, make sure you're using a mic with a flat low frequency response curve. Lots of mics roll off on the lower end of the band.

Brother Sam!

Slow ...slow ...what I presented here is 1 of the 12 tracks that made it to the CD.
I am gathering info for the website but my colleagues are not thÓt co÷perative now. NOT that they are lazy or so but it is the work/music/promotion combination that is a bit hard to do now!

I am glad that you like the track!

Paul TBO

Friends please listen because Moder Dave warned me: the ftp-space is limited in time!

Of course there will be occasions when the website will be finished

I couldn't believe it but the link is still working (see some posts more upwards)
Thank you Moder Dave!
So for you friends who want to hear a little something of us playing please do!
As you know: Bonnie couldn't make it that moment but this is "A" and she is half Alembic (chuckle)!

Wow, Brother Paul!! - I downloaded your track a few days ago and finally got around to listening to it on my computer that has decent speakers.

I love it!! Very tasty blues. I hope you don't mind, but it's going into the mix on my iPod. Let us know when a CD is available - I'll bang some beer bottles on the table, then get in line to buy it!

Peace
Tom

I love Blues. One of my top two favorites to play. Funk being the other.

Danno; it's an mp4. If you have Realplayer, try that. Also, if you have something that plays m4a files, you can change the extension to that.

Hi gang,

BTW we're going to do an experiment with this band by adding a horn-section! Just for 6 songs we have to play for a special occasion!

Now THAT will be fun!
