    I'm going to play the song Cantina Band from the soundtrack of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope on a tribute concert to composer John Williams on his birthday in february, and I've transcribed everything to play but I can't figure out how to create the sound to whatever the bass instrument is on the original recording

    I'm using a multieffect board where I can create and mash together basically any sound I want but I have no idea what is required to get this sound. Any ideas?
  2. It is a keyboard on the recording but I've always just used a regular bass tone for that tune.
  3. If you wanted to get close I'd recommend using an envelope filter or perhaps even an EHX Bass Micro-Synth. Either one of those should get you in the ballpark for a live performance in my opinion.
