Bass Looping Techniques

Endorsing artist Chris Hargreaves walks through the bass looping techniques he uses with Submotion Orchestra, demonstrating how even non-virtuosos can achieve atmospheric soundscapes and percussive effects with a blend of echo, reverb, delay, EQ and panning. 

You got a lot of punch, brightness and weight when you dig in with Elixir® Bass Strings. I can play super heavy and they respond perfectly. In the studio that means you get a great signal right from the source, which is fantastic. Chris Hargreaves
