    Um...why are you starting a new thread AND bumping your old thread? :meh:

    It doesn't really sound like a bowed bass to me. It sounds like an electric bass with a volume pedal. Which is a fine sound, but it's not a bow.

    Get a swell pedal.
    It'll save you a bunch of efforts for a better result.

    I'd recommend a Guyatone Slow Volume...it's a clone of the old Boss slow gear. Very cool little pedal.

    Then why double post? I'm merging this thread with the old one.

    I apologize, I didn't think to post in the effects section until about two days after I posted in the recordings section and there weren't any responses yet, I thought I might get better/more feedback in the effects are, thus the double post.

    Not at all bow like... but not bad. Want the bow sound? Get an Ebow... not sure how they sound on bass though...
  10. Hey muzique fann, how is the slow volume working with bass? I read it does not track very well. What do you think?
  11. i always wondered why people put such a slow attack on when emulating a bowed instrument. if you play correctly with a bow, that volume scoop should be almost negligable. just my .02
