I've been working with some new musicians and I'm having a heck of a time trying to pin down this tone I'm trying to achieve. Basically, I want all the tone of my bass but WITHOUT the sound of the initial attack. To put it a little more clearly, I want the note that I play to sound like it starts with the "bloom," rather than the "click" or whatever that you normally get when you initially strike a string. I want it to sound like when I lock in with the kick, I don't define the hit but rather I'm simply adding a particular pitch to the sound... does that make sense? Almost synth like but not a synth. I hope this makes sense to at least a couple of you. lol. I'll try to dig up some samples of the sound I'm imagining. I've tried EQ but that doesn't really get me there, because it alters the whole of my tone. I use flats and a P, and the tweeter is off in my cab. I've thought about buying an envelope filter pedal and trying to set it such that the envelope opens up immediately AFTER I strike the note but I don't want to just start buying things willy nilly. Ideas?
