Inmate Checks In With Bass Recording Update

Slovenian metallers Inmate have issued the following update about recording bass parts for an upcoming release:

"It has been a while since we first posted our report about how things are developing in studio. Well, so far so good. After the rhythm and lead guitars had been recorded it was time for me to lay down bass tracks. Tat Purusha and I started on the 31st January 2011 at 5pm. We usually started at that time and work for like five to six hours. On the first day we checked the tuning on bass and set the preamp and the compressor that we used. Actually these were the only two things we used for record bass because for now, these tracks are only 'clean' tracks. And then we hit the red button.

"Recording went really well for me if I think that this was my first time in a professional studio and working with a professional producer. A good producer knows that bass is like a red thin line between guitars and drums, so if the bass sucks, everything sucks. We did quite good tuning on bass tracks so it fits in even more perfect than I could have imagined at the first time. Ohhh and I didn't even know that slapping and popping would fit in. Tat Purusha somehow took me to the limits and we did it. We used everything in every song, from standard picking with the guitars we went to some harmonic scales and to some slapping parts. Like I have said… sounds perfect.

"Now when all the songs are finished, we can only wait for re-amping to be done. We are going to use my live rig which is all tube power amp, sansamp RBI preamp, BBE maximizer, compressor and David Eden 410XLT bass cabinet. But what will happen and how… I'll let you know next time, mates!"
