Master Class on electric bass sound design by Gabriele Cannarozzo at Saint Louis on Wednesday, May 8, 2024.

The sound of the electric bass is a key element in any production, and knowing how to “draw” it is a very important skill that every bassist should be able to cope with. It is the work of producers of their instrument, rather than instrumentalists, who aim to give the bass its proper place within the mix and render its creative value through its timbral characterization.

To do this you need a good knowledge of all what we can call the “tools” of the trade: starting with the different instruments, to the various types of strings and techniques, and then to the amplifiers and finally to the effects. Therefore, it is important to know how to disentangle this vast array of products and combine them together effectively.

Gabriele Cannarozzo, during the masterclass at Saint Louis, will address all these aspects, to give the idea of how a professional can exploit all these possibilities in order to bring his own idea of sound within a production, thus characterizing it with his own creativity and leaving a recognizable mark.

Workshop program:

  • Instruments and strings
  • Techniques and their influences on “playstyle”
  • Amplifiers
  • The Pre-Eq-Comp Signal Chain
  • Effects
  • Setup
  • Synth Bass
