Quin McAdam – September 27 – Add Bass and Fix Drums

Saturday mornings before things really get going is a good time for me to work on tracks that I can track with headphones only like Bass. This morning I first fixed up the drum loops a bit taking the kick out of the track during the breakdown section. I used some different “real drummer” loops and fills. I added a bass track rolling off the top end on my MusicMan StingRay Bass. The Bass has an active battery powered EQ on it that really delivers punch. In this case I wanted to emulate older records P-Bass sound. I tracked the Bass part. I then EQ’ed the kick drum down a little bit in the loop by dropping 60Hz.
