Strangelove bass sound
Does anybody know how to get the Strangelove by Depeche Mode bass sound?
I can hear two bass synths on there, playing mostly the same line, then there's a bass playing a guitar-like part in the verses.
There's a simple percussive analogy synth, then a sample based synth, using a sample of a bass played with a pick, that plays the same thing with a few extra notes here and there.
The bass guitar is played with a pick, using lots of front pickup. Sounds like a Wal.
If you are doing the song live, I would just use a jazz bass, both pickups on, treble up, played with a pick, and go for a warm, compressed tone. In the studio, double the above with a short percussive synth sound. Ask your guitarist to play the bass guitar part.
Wow. That's pretty thorough.
