    Hey fellas, just a short quick demo of this funk group I'm gonna be playing with. Nothing special, we threw this together real quick like. So be nice ;)
    It's just for our promo pack, some day (when I get off my lazy behind) I'll put something of my own doing up.

    For reference, I used my Sadowsky 5 straight into my Yamaha 01V thru a MOTU 2408, into Digital Performer 4 (DP4 running on a Mac G4 dual).
    Slight compression going in with a 4db boost at 125 Hz (kinda wide Q) and around a 3-4 db cut (narrow Q) at 1.2Khz. No other processing on the bass at all.
    Everything was cut pretty much live except some guitar stuff and a few keyboard parts.
    I have a feeling this may be in the wrong forum :meh:

    Gee, thanks guys!!
    Yeah, it's a real fun band. Pretty much just cut live. Played a verse and chorus of each tune, the longest was maybe 2 1/2 min. tops.
    Lemme see, there is Lakeside, Dazz, Gap Band, Prince, Freekbass and Rick James in there. But we run the whole range of funk and R&B.
    The biggest thing is we try not to take our selves to seriously. We just play the tunes good and make people wanna shake their behinds and bounce.

    Plus, it's funk the way it was intended to be played, by five white guys from the suburbs!!!

    Here is the longer version that we worked up:

    This link may not be up for much longer.
    It's a little too long IMO, and the other gets the point across a little better when a bar owner/booking agent is trying to make a decision.

    But man is it a blast to play and see people make an effort to dance to you. We may not be the best, but we have a TON of fun :D
     
  9. nice!
