Getting a specific tone on bass from a recording

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by Jazz PLayer, Jan 11, 2014.

  1. Hi,
    I'm a newbie when it comes to eq and getting specific tones, but I love the overall tone of the bass in Rob Thomas & Carlos Santana's "Smooth" recording.

    Punchy mids with a massive sub like bottom end...

    Any pointers?

  3. See, I knew there'd be a brilliant response, thanks Stick_Player, I've contacted Benny and hope he responds.

    Cheers my friend.
