Hi guys! I just happened on your site from the link at the SWR site. What a great forum! Here's my problem: I play bass in a two-piece rock band (the other member is a drummer). We have been trying to record a CD for over a year now and the studios and producers we've tried to work with so far have not been able to grasp the concept of what we're trying to do. They balk at the idea that rock music can work without a guitar and try to come up with ways to fill out the sound with loops and samples. We feel that our sound is unique and full in its own way -- I split my bass signal 3 ways: one is clean, the second is distorted, and the third is effected differently depending on the song. I also do the singing, so the female vocals fill up the higher end of the sonic spectrum. When people hear our music over the internet they don't guess that there's no guitar, and our live shows (including one with Kings X) have gone over really well. So any thoughts on how to go about finding an engineer or producer who might find our unusual setup intriguing and not threatening?! Do you know of any studios that might be more "bass-friendly?" We look forward to hearing your thoughts on this!
