Bowed Bass

Bowed electric bass with special tuning....

The story

I’m currently in the process of moving from Connecticut to California and whilst packing this new chapter in my life I decided to sample some instruments that I’ll be parting with. Having an old bow and bass I decided to tune each string to the same pitch, run it through a grimey distortion and then bow the livin’ heck out of it. After some post processing using Paulstretch, EQ and other bits-n-bobs, I’ve created a nice atmospheric drone. Have fun!

  • Lovely pad derived from a bass

    This is a lovely pad sound derived from a bass. It has a certain flanger-esque quality to it. Having access to ADSR envelope controls on the GUI would have been a nice touch, but it is useful and inspiring as it is!
