Hi! I am currently recording / mixing my bands second album, which is a kinda blackened death metal style, though with more focus on the black part. I really want to get a tone close to the one that Orion has on the latest Behemoth album - The Satanist. I have been googling through a couple of threads from other forums but I couldn't really find much help, so please help me in how to get a similar tone! Particularly I am looking for something like this: There does not seem to be much 'making of' from the making of this album, but there is a bit from the previous album where he does go over some of the bass gear: The tone is different between the two albums, but I figured that the elements are somewhat the same? What I found so far with my own experimentation is that it envolves the following: - Humbucker bass pickups. Either both neck and bridge combined or just the neck PU - Overdrive, probably something like a sansamp or a darkglass - It seems to work well to both add some drive on the OD but also on whatever vst amp, so that you get a sort of staged OD. I cant really figure out the following: - what EQ moves to make? It is not the traditional mid scoop it seems to me? - should I use some IR of a bass or guitar cab to get this sound? - should I split the sound to also have a clean low part as is often seen? - should I do any of the 'run it through a guitar amp to get distortion' trick, or will the OD from a sansamp vst be enough? - how do i compress it in a way that it stays consistent without being totally squashed? Any help is greatly appreciated Thanks!
