The original is pretty far away from my version (this is a pop 80’s song )
For the guitar and bass track, I used for the first time GXCabinet and Notch Bank plugins, I think this help a lot for both
And yes, this is a real bass, recorded directly without pedal, with added plugins. This is real guitar with pedal effects and then plugins, and drums are sequenced, with plugins.
“If you already play the guitar in your rock music track, you should try playing the real bass too” : that’s what Unfa told me when I was trying to simulate bass with octave-1 guitar
So my brother lend me one and I used it : it’s ok for me as long as bass melodies are simple enough
Well if unfa said it - I’m looking for a new bass
I have the ultimate respect for that bloke - he showed me that doing it this way was not only feasible but … well you’re here so you already know
I had a Chinese bass I got off ebay for $80 but the neck cracked a while back. Yeah I tried the “Bass” preset on Rakarrack but the latency is a killer.
