  1. Would love to know what the bass player was using at around 2:00 to make his bass sound kind of like a bowed bass. It was synthy, kind of a slow attack, perhaps with distortion or triggering a wave form of some kind. I can kind of get something similar, but like the result he got very much, and would be curious to know the signal path.

    1. Ah! Thank you! I’ll see what I can achieve with my Pod 500HD. Sometimes I play music theatre shows and was thinking it would be nice to simulate the “arco” sections.

  2. Super Awesome. I’d love to know what happened behind the scenes to make that happen and the arrangement so solid?
