Hunter Process

By onezero on June 3, 2018 6:15 pm

Against the background of the rest of the week, this one's definitely a "keep the groove" going kind of piece, rather than something really new. I started with the drums (Drum Rack of acoustic trap kit single hits with Drum Buss), added some bass (EQ-8 to roll off lows), percussion (Drum Rack of assorted percussion and Drum Rack of tablas), a quick pass at some guitar (Epi Moderne through low- and high-pass Auto-Filter with drive into Cabinet plugin), and a little Electric on the classic Wurlitzer preset.  I put a bit of M4L Humanizer on the drums, percussion, and Electric, and used a lot of automation on sends to two different Echo returns.  There's also room sound from a convolution reverb, auto-pan everywhere, and everything gets Full-Chain Master.


Title from the name of an early process of isolating titanium (element 22) in quantity--a process that was first done at RPI, where I've been several times for Deep Listening events, so that's kind of a cool connection.

The delay on the drums (snare hits) is a great effect. Nice guitar and bass work. I could listen all day! Such a good laid back vibe.

Yeh, the delay really adds the right amount of seasoning. Melodic elements are spare but righteous.

Such a mellow groove.

Vanadium is next, so I reckon it's going to be industrial? Vanadium steel is used in lots of tools.

Your bass playing is too.....sexy.  It makes me feel too......sexy.

Thank you!  Glad you like it!

I ended up with a battery reference--I was thinking sea squirts, but batteries won out.

That's the goal!  I do love playing the bass.  (I might just tip into doing a bass upgrade, if there's good job news at the end of the month...)

Thank you, Emily!  I like those dancing amoebas!  And glad that Vlad there is digging it, too.

What kind of bass do you use?

Currently an 80s Japanese-era Epiphone Embassy II bass with retrofit EMG Selects; one P pickup and one J at the bridge. (Very hard to find a photo of this model of  bass online.)

Take a pic sometime if you can!  I am really interested in seeing it.  I just have a Fender Squire and always wonder how much more luscious a pricey-er bass would be.   

....or would it?

No problem!  I'll put up a photo this week. Years ago, when I bought it, I had the option of buying this or a different bass (the one I thought I wanted) for the same price.  The Epiphone felt better, but probably isn't worth anything compared to the other one that...didn't feel as nice.  So there's that.  Later on, the bridge of the Epi cracked (that happened with that era of three-point bridge) and I didn't play it for a while, but later got an Allparts replacement.  The stock pickups weren't great, so I found cheap EMGs, which were better.

The bass feels good and is fun to play...but I'm not quite happy about the tonal options--I roll off a lot under 110 Hz--and the balance of the string sounds.  I was toying with the idea of replacing the EMGs with better pickups (Lollars), but I also have a line on another one of those always-wanted-one basses which has much more adjustability in the balance, as well as a reputation for being super-deep.  So we'll see if that's still available when I get it together to buy.

I'd say the main thing to watch for is whether or not you like the feel of the bass.  You probably can't go wrong with your basic Precision bass, though.
