    I play a lot of reggae abd I have heard a lot of very digitally synthesized sounding effects before, especially in the modern dancehall. I was wondering what Eric of Sublime was using in the sing Caress Me Down off of their self-titled album. I have heard that same sound in other of their recordings and I would like to know what is used and how it operates.Please let me know if anyone can give me some info.Peace.......
  2. ummm he uses a bass... i am pretty sure that is about it...

    unless hes using the keyboard on that song... he did that once in a while but im pretty sure that caress me down is just aaaalllll bass.

    I agree, all bass on that song. I think it sounds wierd because his tone is so bassy.

    i'm pretty sure he uses a ton of effects actually. His setup is posted on guitar geek i think and he uses sum pretty strange stuff. Check it out i could be wrong but thats how i remeber it.

    the only thing other than clean bass is a SH101 synth.... but that's separate... he doesn't use effects on the bass
