I recorded this track as a play-along practice piece, for critique by my fellow members at http://www.scottsbasslessons.com It is not intended for publication, or wider circulation. It is not for profit.
Joyce composed all the songs on this Album, in conjunction with her long-time friend Jay Wagner, who was also involved in producing it.
I chose to play along on my very new to me (2019) Ken Smith BSR 5TN “Black Tiger”, through neck, 5 string fretted Bass. I only bought it a month ago. I’m still working hard on getting used to playing it.
It is fitted with a new set of Ken Smith’s own brand tapered core round wound Stainless Steel strings, with a diameter of 0.130 on the low B string.
I played this song in ‘Active’ mode via its onboard preamp. I set the onboard three-band, Mid and Bass controls at around 65%. I left the Mid- range control at 50%. The Pan between the Neck and Bridge Pickups was also set mid-way between the Neck and Bridge PUs.
I routed it via my Bergantino B|AMP, which I used as an inline preamp, I set the tone controls on my Bergantino B|AMP flat.
This was, yet again, a one shot ‘take’. I am pleased with the tone and quality of the sound. That was what I wanted to hear myself and demonstrate to my friends. The only sound effect is driven by my fingers.
I sent the signal from my Bergantino B|AMP direct through an XLR cable, to my Focusrite Clarett 4 Pre USB Audio Interface, which is connected to my Intel i7 powered, Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64 bit PC. The Audio track was recorded direct on Ableton Live 10 Lite recording software
From there, it was It was imported direct to Corel Pinnacle Studio Video Software, version 21.5. I turned off the Audio track on the original video, captured via the microphone in my camera. The higher quality Audio track was subsequently added and synchronised with the video footage.
Although this camera can record HD video files up to 4k resolution, the files become far too large and unwieldy for general upload use, so I uploaded the completed composite video as a SD MPEG-4 format file, to save delay when replayed over the Internet.
