Upright Experiment #1

I just got an upright bass. Yup. After 8 years from when I first lay my hands on one, I have one of my own. It’s pretty exciting and it is really difficult to express the emotional connection I have with this instrument…and it’s luck that the one that is now in my own hands feels right. Absolutely. And this is going to get the crap played out of it. Not damaging, just that I intend to realize as much potential as possible with this new addition to the family.  Beyond practice and possibly playing it in small group settings, experimentation is close to the top of the list of things to do.

So this video is the first documentation of some of that experimentation.  The Max patch is the #5 guitar processor from the tutorials on the cycling74 website.  It’s basically a series of overdrives and delays.  I’d like to be able to hook up a Wii Remote to control some of the variables and figure out a bypass so i can play along with the looping samples…anyway, this is a start.
