Machine Messiah (HD Remaster)

Around six years ago I was experimenting with video effects and recorded this cover of Machine Messiah. Since then, YouTube’s audio and video compression capabilities improved a lot so I figured that this one could be sort of remastered both sonic and visually. As I had the green screen behind me, and although the lighting put a big shadow on it, I decided to make some different video effects, not as flashy as the first version. Most of all, I hope now the sound is better and you enjoy this cover of one of my favourite Yes compositions and basslines!

Bass: Rickenbacker 4001 CS

Strings: Warwick Red Strings (45-105, stainless steel)

Preamp: Sansamp Bass Driver DI (BDDI)

Effects: Amplitube 3 – T-RackS CS Vintage Compressor 670

Signal path: Bass→BDDI→PC→T-RackS
