    I'm trying to find out what effect is used on kirk franklins brighter day. There's a breakdown in the song and when the bass comes back in the bass does a little bouncing on G and it sounds like a techno sound with some wah in it. Don't really know how to descrbe it.
  2. I can get a pretty good facsimile of that break with a DOD FX-25B envelope filter, although I suspect the recording may be keyboard. Go nuts & try to contact the musician(s?) responsible. I've emailed Ron Carter, Bob Dorough (Conjunction Junction) & others & always been impressed at how real & down-to-earth they were.

    Low end for The Most High!

    I'm not exactly sure which part you are talking about, but it always sounded to me like the bass was run through an octave doubler for most of the song (and then doubled on clavinet for a for a large portion too)...
