The Battles: Hi/Lo

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by mostpplrnotok, Mar 2, 2006.

  1. hey guys
    just lately been listening to a band from NY on Warp, Battles. Just wondering if anyone had any ideas on recreating that bass sound (wicked tone) on 'Hi/Lo' esp the live recording (assuming it was made by a bass guitar and not a synth in the first place??)

  2. If I'm not mistaken there is no electric bass in Battles. Ian Williams does pretty much everything through synth. Do a search on youtube.com for Battles videos, I think there are a couple on there.
    That will give you a pretty good idea.

    yeah, that's a synth-- but seems like you could probably wonk it our relatively easily with a bass guitfiddle, mebbe a fuzz and a synth or something?
