Colin The Intern Records the 1966 Fender Precision Bass

It was Colin The Intern's first day today at the Lantern Sound Recording Rig today. One of the things we ran through was recording the electric bass, using a mic'd amplifier and a DI channel simultaneously. Colin played the bass, too. This is a snippet of his performance of "Suffer" by the Smashing Pumpkins.



1966 Fender P-Bass (flatwound strings)
Ampeg 1964 B-15N Portaflex bass amplifier
Heavy-gauge plectrum

Left channel - passive Radial JDI
Right channel - Shure SM7B microphone on Ampeg amp.
Preamp - ART MPA Gold, dual channel, Tung-Sol 12AX7 tubes.
I/O - Echo Audiofire12 Interface
DAW - Logic / Mac OS


We'd rarely mix bass with the DI panned to one side, and the mic channel panned to the other. It's usually a blend of both up the middle. But by panning these two tracks hard left and right, it's easy to hear the difference between the DI and the microphone. Stay tuned for more from Colin the Intern!

6:45 PM - Spoken Word performance by Mellissa Longo

7PM - ROBERT BRUEY grew up in rural New England and lives on Long Island’s North Fork. His roots and how they have helped to shape him are reflected in the original music on his recently released CD, 'Carousel', and are even more evident during a live performance. Robert Bruey’s music is honest and real, raw and meaningful, gritty and naturalistic. His deft, spare and unique finger-picking style -- with notes carefully left alone to be heard in the moment -- provides a perfect complement for his earthy and soulful voice and the meaningful, introspective lyrics of his songs. As a musical artist, he paints with words -- imbuing his songs with imagery that enables listeners to visualize his stories as he sings them.Although he cites such diverse artists as Dave Matthews, Van Morrison, Waylon Jennings, Jackson Browne and Damien Rice as influences, Robert Bruey is his own muse blazing his own musical path – one that should lead him into listening rooms and living rooms far and wide.
