Synthesized Bass guitar

This is a recording of a MIDI Bass Guitar. This instrument has very strong, low-end frequency response (hence the name) and very little high-end frequency response. This is probably one of the instrument's greatest "weaknesses," but it is an acceptable one since the Bass is not intended for high-frequency output. It is also difficult to play Bass guitar on a keyboard, which is a weakness of the MIDI controller that I used.

When I composed with this instrument, I had to focus on the rhythm aspect of studio production. I did not produce complex chords using counterpoint (because this would be too tedious). Instead I recorded an initial bass line to establish the roots of the chords I used. After this, I added an additional bass line to create a melody and add musicality to this rhythm-based track.
