    Salut all, I wanted to use almost all of my basses in my album Gazillian Project (just because I can). Everything was done by me on this album, 100% amateur homemade . Too bad I am not as good as I wanted with clean rythm bass playing, I will have to practice !

    The bass is the main instrument driving the songs, but not as a lead one like in fusion or what.

    Will you recognize the distinctive tone of them ?

    00:00 The Cloud : NO BASS
    01:12 The Broken (I) : Flatwound Jazz bass (DI).
    04:30 The Smile (II) : Modulus Funk Unlimited (through my rig). + EMG P equiped Precision Bass (DI) + Squier Bass VI (DI) for the western vibe bridge
    08:54 The Sand (III) : EMG P equiped Precision Bass (DI)+ overdriven EMG P equiped Precision Bass (through my rig).
    19:00 The Need (IV) : Ernie Ball Stingray (through rig), with hard 2nd order filter on the DAW
    24:33 The Fact (V) : Rickenbacker 4003 (through rig with YYZ pedal)
    28:33 The Line (VI) : Flatwound Muted Precision (DI) + Modulus Funk Unlimited (through my rig) for slap
    32:14 The Eyes (VII) : Squier Bass VI (through guitar rig) + Rickenbacker 4003 (through rig with flanger)
    34:15 The Fall (VIII) : Flatwound Jazz bass (DI) + Flatwound Muted Precision (DI) for the grand final

    The recording from my rig was done with LOTS of pedals, Gallien Krueger MB-500 head and MOOER RADAR CAB SIM, with my own IR ( Gallien Krueger NEO 410 with two SM-57 )

    Lots of efforts into that album, particularly mixing ! But mixing is way easier when you are the only guy in the band, no more ego fight about which frequency bandwidth for what instrument !

    Plus you fluent english speaking guys and girls can laugh about my accent, I give you that haha !

    wow! what an undertaking! :thumbsup: it's all good to my ears, although i immediately gravitate to a few of those --- e.g., i appreciate the little funky twist on the line (VI). and i don't hear anything but english in the singing...i doubt an accent would hurt the effort, anyway. pretty cool stuff, clement.

    i commend you for your hard work, your great playing, and your talent/skills bringing it all together with your studio chops! nice job! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: thanks for sharing your music!

    I really enjoyed this bass forward project. I say bass forward rather than bass centric.

    It’s great to hear bass in the context of the songs.
