Just heard of this band while looking for how to get good direct bass tone.

Royal Blood

2 guys, a drummer and a bassist/vocalist.

The bass players splits his signal to a fuzz bass, then to a 2 distorted guitar amps. (Not sure if that's how he really does it, but found a breakdown on YouTube of how to emulate his tone).

Anyway, these guys are bad ass...

Thanks for sharing this - I didn't know about this band but I'll check them out.
We have a local band which plays in similar setup (no guitars), but this sounds absolutely amazing. The sound is so full and you are not missing either guitar or bass. Simply amazing! smile.gif

royal blood get a lot of radio play over here, they have some really cool riffs smile.gif
a lot of stoner bands use the bass in much the same way, its like their main focus of their sound.... and very cool it is as well! I do like a mega fuzzed out bass cool.gif

I'd like to know what Fuzz he's using. Maybe an Octave Fuzz (upper octave). Maybe really light strings for the thinner, guitar-like tone?
I wish the camera focused more on what/how he was playing. I play in the upper register quite a bit myself, but it sounds like a bass being played in the upper register whereas he sounds like a guitar huh.gif

Here's how you can achieve it in your bedroom using all Logic X (only $200 and WELL WORTH IT!!!)

Essentially...

Have a bass input channel.

Buss that out to a bass amp emulator with fuzz, compression and a dash of EQ.

Buss in out to a left guitar channel and a right guitar channel. Use separate guitar amp emulators on those channels.

Also the guitars channels are set to play an octave higher than the bass channel.

I'm going to attempt to dial it up this weekend.
