    This song was pretty easy but i want to know how to get Dirks tone. Is it his warwicks tone and i can't emulate it? Or what Eq etc does he use?
     
  2. I don't know how he configures his bass eq, but I know that is his classic (if you will) slap sound that he has had since the "Enjoy Incubus" and "S.C.I.E.N.C.E." disks. Sounds like he moves the pan to emphasize the rear pickup, and turns the mids up. I'm not a big Warwick fan myself, but his bass tone and lines are what got me into Incubus in the first place - and Brandon's voice.
