THAT Photek Bass Sound

8 Replies, 4353 Views

There was a bass sound, what Mr. Parks used in a lot of tunes, example the legendary Ni Ten Ichy Ryu.
That bass sound like a slowed down percussion sound, maybe conga.

Here is the bass sound, I've tried to create a "usable" version from it, but its still the original Photek bass.

I've spent a lot of time to sample from old, obscure and rare library records, and found a percussion loop, don't ask where, I can't access to my sample library right now, but I've attached the two percussion samples.

So.
The trick...

Sorry guys, but I can't remember everything, there was 1000 resamples and diff. eq-ing, reverbing, looping etc.

But.

You have to slow down one of these, add some reverb (make a bigger, longer sound), and the key is the EQ preset, there is a big peak in the original Photek bass around 200Hz, so boost the sample on 200Hz, I think you'll be surprised!

I've attache my result, use it if you want, but do not forget to credit me in the interviews if you became a big Virgin Science artist Grin

Yapp, I made tunes, have some sh*tty releases, but you know, I was just happy with my results.
Photeks basses and drums are the really standards for that smokey jazzy abstract stuff what I do these days.
Thats all man Grin
