    Cool coincidence. I've been digging the crates of a lot of Japanese underground hip hop these last few months.
    Very cool stuff over there.

    The mastery works great. It doesn't move. Sets up and intonates perfectly. I don't know if it'll drop in to either of those Eastwoods but it's any easy and worthwhile replacement on a Fender or Squire VI.

    That was pretty cool. Not only did I enjoy the music, but that's the first time in a very long while that I've found myself genuinely engaged by a band's video.

    In my brief time with a Bass VI, I installed a different bridge and it made a big difference. But I still think fixed-tail bridges are better for sustain on low strings with short scale lengths. Then again, I'm not happy with the E on my Silhouette, so maybe it's not the bridge.

    here's another. 4-string on the first tune, 6-string on second.

    What the heck. I didn’t need to hear/see this.
    Chainsaw

    New skiff is on the way. Maybe I’ll have some room for this little guy.

    The chainsaw is cool (as is the demon core) but in the end I decided I’d rather not try to do poly in Eurorack. I’m awaiting delivery on a new analog frequency shifter, though. That’s something that doesn’t come along every day.

    I don’t try for polyphony in the ‘rack either. It’s be tempting if you could modulate each individual note separately, but my modular stuff is mostly for atmospheric weirdness these days, when I even bother to fire it up. The EssenceFM/Octatrack combo still has me pretty hooked for the time being. I do kinda miss having a couple granular choppy/glitchy modules to play bass through though

    I doubt anyone would be interested (nor should you be!), but I’m being interviewed later today for a live stream thing, mostly slap upright bass related

    Interesting project:



    404.zero was formed back in 2016 as an outlet for the ambitious audiovisual projects of Russian artists Kristina Karpysheva and Alexander Letsius. Approaching light, sound and space with a singular vision, understanding them as essential parts of a monolithic whole, the duo create awe-inspiring works of grand scale which are defined by an esoteric aesthetic sensibility and a distinctly cinematic quality.

    You previously mentioned that you did a mix session with the MOOD and said that you where never going to do one without it again.

    I'm interested as to how you used it.
