Heart Of The Sunrise

Rest in Peace, Peter Banks!

Bass: Rickenbacker 4001CS

Strings: Rotosound Swing Bass RS66LD (45-105, stainless steel)

Preamp: Sansamp Bass Driver DI (BDDI)

Effects: Amplitube 3 – Fender Tremolo

Signal path: Bass→BDDI→PC→Amplitube

I used the Jammit version of the track without bass so for the first time I was able to put my bass only on the mix.

  1. Outstanding as usual Miguel! Love the arpeggio work. I know there has been much speculation whether Squi played those parts on a picolo bass, but you’ve quite adeptly demonstrated that he probably just overdubbed his Ric. Thanks for the most enjoyable performance. Keep up the great work and keep posting!

    All the best,

    1. Hello Mike! I hadn’t heard of that possibility (the piccolo). I used the treble pickup only for the chords and cut a bit of bass and a bit more of presence/treble on my sansamp. Thank you very much!

  2. Hi Miguel,
    i have often seen your work and I am always amazed that you make exactly Squiers sound.
    Also every single note’s exactly right.
    For that I admire you very much.
    I also read that you. use in a SansAmp BDDI
    For this sound I’ve been looking a long time ago.
    Could you please tell me the settings?
    It distorted so beautiful,with the Rick.

    Please make your great work keep it up.

    Greetings Michael

    1. Hi Michael,

      Thanks for the message and your interest!
      During the past months I have been trying to re-design my video-blog entries here and one of the things I am doing is updating the tags. That means that for the videos where I have used the BDDI, there will be a tag that you can click and hopefully it will show you all the videos which have the BDDI.

      On some videos, like Release Release, I have a picture of the BDDI with my usual basic settings. You can start from there and then adapt to your playing style, taste, amp and strings. Don’t forget that the BDDI does not have an input level control so the amount of overdrive will also depend of your bass output level. I hope this helps, let me know if you have more questions.

      Enjoy your playing!
