Reply To: Q/A with State of Mind..
I’m curious to your most common approaches to bassline arrangement and associated workflow.
When you’re brainstorming and trying to come up with ideas for interesting basslines/grooves (not single notes, multi-bar “phrases”)
Do you typically start with just a single bass sound and mangle it into many variations then try to arrange those variations to come up with something you like?
Or do you typically use multiple different bass sounds and processes them to fit together and build the arrangement that way?
Do you think one way is better than the other?
I’m asking because I personally find it difficult to get completely different bass sounds I like on their own to sound good together and arrange them into bass “phrases”.
Hopefully I’m making sense…
