A sneak preview – an unmixed, rough recording of Yes’ “Machine Messiah” with my bass into the NeuralDSP Darkglass plugins covering Chris Squire’s bass.

Don’t tell anyone I left this here…

More on the tone when I finish the video in a few days.

Now if you compare this rough track with the finished and final track recorded a week later, you can hear several improvements in the later track. The intro is less staccato in the later track, the bass run at 1:22 is better (I was adding an “A” in the earlier version, it shouldn’t have been there), stuff like that:

It’s amazing what a difference a little more practice and listening can do.
