Yes, Im a newbie, please have some grace...
So, Im recording this old school bass player. His steady bass is a 69 jazz Fender it sounds great , he plays it great, has good technique, I plug his bass into a universal audio 710 -sounds great.I trust this mans taste , hes also a good writer. yadda yadda But........one day
He comes in with this Bass HE CHERISHES its an acoustic fretless bass with a pick up. We plug it into the UA preampi into my apogee ensemble.. and buzz . buzz, mumble mumble, and He doesn't seem to mind, because" thats part of the sound "He says...The songs is a latin ballad type and the Buzz I find unflattering, but I dont know what it supposed to sound like eithe
r. It def doesnt sound close to a upright bass and its weak as an electric.
Im baffle thinking is it something on my end ? Im trying compression, bass simulators in Logic. Eq trying to find that ugly buzz and cut it,y a know.. find some kind of middle ground.. Im just not digging it at all. I trying to research and find some kind of comparison or maybe some kind of suggestion to give to the player to make it work. He seems pretty close to this buzzing bass sound.But I want to try other resources before I tell him to pick up the Jazz fender.
So does anyone have any experiences with Acoustic bass fretless bass or a go to artist or song I can wrap my ears around. Im pretty much into all music.
Or maybe i need to help along with the techinique of the instrument.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
