    Shaun you have to know what the frequency of the note is & go to audiosuite... Select a piece of time & generate a sine wav... I believe its in the "other" tab

    There's a midi pickup on that bass, that probably made the process a lot easier. Damn, I've never heard a jazz bass sound like that before, sounds clanky as fuck. Usually I associate clank with P basses.

    Possibly, there might be 0% natural bass in this. I'm pretty convinced that the tone I'm hearing isn't a Jazz tone. I'm hoping Joey can chime in on this.

    Do the UAD-1 Cards have Preflex on them, I remember you used it on a mix from a while ago, I dug the tone!

    I crashed my car recently so my gear list is the same old thing.
    Looking to start some shopping in april though!

    Watch the above video. That HAS TO BE the same bass... just cleaner and obviously only DI in the video sound..

    Maybe the low-end portion of it is 'programmed' but all of the grit and twang is from THAT particular J-Bass played by that dude...

    I was just listening to the raw DI of the bass for the last band we had in here. Had a mid-level Ibby BTB bass I believe, BUT the sound is IMMENSE. Tons of twang and as Ermz says, just the raw DI gave me a hard-on.

    Guess why?

    I realized this particular dude had changed his bass strings a DAY prior to recording... first time I've witnessed this in my studio but will now be MANDATORY... =D

    BTW, we've borrowed a 5-stringer J just like that one from work and it is FUCKING BRUTALLLLLLLLLLLLL.

    Bass from a session i created this thread on. Bassist bought brand new strings and put them on while i was setting up bass tracks, Those strings are the freshest. Give me your thoughts & opinions.

    Programming bass? God.. what has this world come too. hahaha

    Every "bass" thread that comes up are answered with the usual comments you can find here in this latest "bass" thread but this question has never been answered, which I also asked in one of the last "bass" threads. So once again...I would love to know the answer to this also?

    Answer to what?
    I think I have mentioned UAD about 3 times in this thread already.

    Someone else also said Preflex or Nigel (cant remember which) and thats the UAD plug that I am referring to about bass tones.
