I think I've nailed his tone..kinda
. idk how it sits in a mix but I can say for sure in a weekend or two. here's what I used..
Acoustic b600h into 2 Acoustic b410's
Gain 1:00/Vol. whatever it needs to be at/Freq. 2:00/40hz 2:00/120hz 2:00/350hz 1:00/800hz 2:00/2k 1:00/5k 3:00
Squier VM jazz bass w/Model J pickups
Rotosound Swing Jazz strings
Compressor setting 2/noise gate setting 5/modulation phaser setting 1/EQ flat
Sansamp BDDI Deluxe
drive full on/bass 11:00/treble 12:00/presence full off/blend 9:30/lvl. 11:30
There's a Boss OC3 in the fx chain which i wasn't using but if you were to add it to the sound I would go for Poly mode/Octave 2 full off/Octave 1 9:00/lvl. 3:00
Sooo there you have it. Nice and detailed, hope it helps. I imagine I'll probably come back to it tomorrow and think it needs tweeking. The sound itself reminds me of Ged's Moving Pictures tone. YYZ and The Camera Eye to be specific. Of course low action and right hand technique are also required to get his tone.
