Eventide GTR-4000

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by bassvirtuoso13, Apr 17, 2001.

  1. I love my Eventide who else has one and would
    you like to share patches.
  2. Whats up wit that. Nobody uses effects. Come on.
  3. Does anybody have an effects processor?
  4. Dude, Eventide stuff is expensive. Most TBers would probably rather spend $3000 on a badass bass than on an effects processor, no matter how cool.
  5. Hey I go to Berklee dude music is my life. Im a bassist and a composer. I find whatever means to get a crazy bass sound nobody has ever heard. I'm an experimentalist and I use effects tastefully. I'm also fond writing music without having to play guitar. With the Eventide I can create guitar lines using my bass. I know it's expensive but it is a valuable tool in the composition process.

    wow, cool. why don't you post some of your compositions for us to hear it in use.
  8. I don't have any means of taking the files from my recording computer and putting them on my personal computer. I can tell you a little bit about it. One of my songs is me playing a solo funk line. I add a "3 bassists" effect where it sounds as if more than one bass is playing. One is the normal sound another is a perfect fifth above the root and another is a perfect octave above the major 3rd. It sounds a bit wacky but it makes for some very impresses classmates. There are also a bunch of muted and left hand slaps in it and the ghost notes sound odd when processed.

    My curiousity is piqued by these claims of never before heard bass sounds.

    Granted, this is pretty low-tech but...

    Send you Mac sound files to a cassette recorder. Take that tape, put it in a portable cassette player and send it into the mic or line inputs on a PC. Create a .wav file or .mp3 ...simple. Then we can all revel in the bright new sound that is you.

    Not that I don't know exactly what you're talking about from your description.
  10. Do you have access to a CD burner for the Mac? You could encode everything as a standard WAV or AIFF, or (even better) as redbook CD audio.
  11. No, my guitarist who lives across from me has the Mac and I have a PC. It doesn't have a burner. Yeah I know, instead of buying the damn Eventide I should have bought a good computer, but hey atleast I have insane effects now. By the way, Victor Wooten has one of these things too, but I've never heard him use it.

    Now now, listen to Brad's advice. Do the cassette recorder-thingy - it may not sound great, but at least it will sound. We really would like to hear your bass mastery, oh great virtuoso.
  13. Alright when Josh (my guitarist) returns from his bar hopping escapade I will drop by with a Tascam 4 track (all I got) and record it with that.

    Hey ASSVIRTUOSO, (oops, typo, sorry moderator), you're my hero. I've been trying to get into Berklee for awhile, but from your posts it looks like my spelling and grammar are too strong. Bummer.

    Do you go to Berklee? You haven't mentioned yet.

    Berklee must be really easy because I notice that you are averaging 120 posts per day. Wow! I wish I had the talent to post on this website all day. Even our resident heavy poster, JT, is only at about 8.? a day, and he's doing all that moderating. You're definitely my hero.

    But seriously, is Whit Appleman still teaching at Berklee?
  15. yup the old bearded man still teaches there. hes really great
  16. i think you're referring to Rich Appleman who teaches bass correct
  17. By the way, I do have roommates who share this nick with me. I'm not the only bassvirtuoso13.

    so he claims, but he is unable to back that information up with any accurate info about the school surroundings, or even just a simple mp3 of his "virtuoso" metal stylings.

    so my guess is no, he's just a troll.
