Help on nailing a specific delay tone...
I'm trying to figure out how to achieve the delay tones in this particular song:
The intro is a bass line, and it's run through some sort of delay. There's also another part beginning at 2:57 where I think his bass line relies heavily on delay.
I've been playing bass for 20 years, but am brand new to using delay on it.
Can anyone figure out what he's doing??
If you look at this live version, you can see he's simply doing quarter notes:
So, my question is what kind of delay would that be (analog or digital)? And then, what kind of settings should I be looking at to get that particular sound?
I've never seen a picture of his pedalboard. I do know that the guitarist uses an Empress Superdelay... but that doesn't really help, now does it? LOL!
I'd like to cover this song as an exercise is using delay, but mainly because I just love the song and the band.
sounds like a digital delay with a clean repeat at about 450ms. And I dig their sound so thanks for introducing me to another cool band!
I discovered these guys about 6-7 years ago, and since that time, I've been heavily into the Aussie melodic/prog rock scene.
Defintely a digital and not analog delay sound. Sillyfabe has it about right as far as a estimate on time. Since you mentioned the "Aussie melodic/prog rock" scene I hope you've heard of KARNIVOOL. One of the best bands I've heard in the last 5 years
Have you heard Asymmetry yet? What do you think of it?
Nice...I didn't know of this band...Great bass intro!
Agreed, thanks for a new band! :D
I'm also a huge fan of delay on bass. I love my TC Repeater.
I've had a go and I can't really get it right :(
The first notes of each part yes but not when there's more repeats..Any ideas?
I think I got it last night. I recorded a quick and dirty version of it. Maybe I'm playing it wrong, but I find the last sequence difficult to pull off cleanly because it's up at the 22nd fret on both the D and G strings.
I'll redo it tonight and post a sample.
Thanks for the help guys... that 450ms tip was pretty much bang on!
