Oh the Cost and Sansamp
Monday, March 2, 2009

This is something I got the inspiration for and recorded over a year ago.
I decided that from now on- untill I run out of stuff- that with each post I make here, I will upload some audio clip/demo/track/song that I haven't put up anywhere for one reason or another. Mostly because there wasn't really a place to do so, as most of what I'll post as "unreleased tracks" aren't really "tracks" at all, as you'll see with this first example. So if you want snippets of audio for powerpoints, or are interested in some of the demo "versions" of the songs you already know, or just want a laugh, make sure you keep checking back!
This song if for all the cheese lovers around the world. (If you really want to, you can download the song from my random files page on soundclick.
















In other news, Taka from our...uh....Band(s) ordered this (Image below) last week. I also picked up a cheap new toy and 3 new drum skins since the bass drum skin finally broke through.
Bass players have probably all heard of sansamp. This unit is cool because even though it has 3 digitally controlled channels, the circuit is totally analog which you don't get with most multi channel pedals. We got it because we only get warmness plugging the Bass direct into the Mixer for busking (even though it is a Hi-Z input). This thing Is made for running into a PA with an analog circuit simulating a speaker cabinet type sound, or as a Preamp/tone control Made to be fed Directly into the power amp input on a Bass amp. (lucky for Taka His Trace Elliot combo has several routing options) First impressions both into a Head and direct (IMHO) are that It has a tad too much mud around 200-250 htz, and could use a tiny kick at 60 htz. (which Taka's Graphic Eq on the amp helped with) It's still totally in the ballpark though, and I know a lot of bass players like their tone a little fatter then sounds good to me. Used it a couple days ago for a short commercial recording project, and I didn't need a preamp as this thing IS the preamp. after some really slight EQ, (of course for a different song maybe it would have sounded great as is) It sounded real nice with a touch of that light bass distortion we like to hear on a pop rock song. Taka's got the 3 channels set for Clean/Warm, Mild distortion/aggressive, and Slap.
pretty cool all in one Bass player's dream!
