Alright, so I wasn't totally sure where to put this thread or if a similar one had been previously made. Now before I get going here I want to state first and foremost that I AM A BASS PLAYER - IT WILL ALWAYS BE MY PRIMARY INSTRUMENT. So i play in an electro-rock band and we have a pretty basic set up - bass, drums, 2 guitars, vocals. However one of our guitarists incorporates alot of synths (totally gay for the prophet and the sounds that come out of that thing) and our drummer uses lots of e-drums and samples. I'm also a fairly effects heavy bass player - have a killer go to tone but I do use effects in the process of writing certain songs. Anyways - THE POINT. Wondering if any of you guys also use a bass synth keyboard: whether its a bass synth or midi keyboard and run it through a computer. If so, what do you use - any suggestions in terms of equipment and software? Also what are you're feelings on this technique. Seems to be a fad lately and I'm sure many of you are in a traditionalist camp in terms of just sticking to bass (its been my perspective for a long time now) but I could totally see where this setup could be AWESOME. Discuss.
