    Morgan Delt Mixing Technique

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I've been wondering how Morgan Delt makes his music sound the way it does. It sounds like he does some heavy compression on his songs, or maybe he's just using automation a lot. Does anyone have an idea?

    Example of this can be heard on Morgan Delt's song, Barbarian Kings.

    I just recently got turned on to Morgan Delt. He has become a favorite of mine over the last couple months.

    I don’t know if the OP is him or not....don’t think so...but regardless, I’d be curious to hear how to get some of the sounds he’s using.

    Check out Barbarian Kings....specifically the Bass sound.



    Anyone have any advice? I really love that tone. Kinda Beatles or early Floyd.

    Push everything to the brink of distortion, and then saturate it with gobs of reverb.

    Interesting. Not something that I find personally good though... Tons of saturation and a wash of verb and delay would be the basics if you were to try to emulate.

    I am sure there is much more to how he gets there and not knocking him. Just not my style. I quit doing mushrooms and LSD many years ago....

    Well...different strokes, for sure. I’m really digging a lot of the newer psych bands *shrug*

    Ok maybe it’s not your style, but any tips on that bass sound? I know it’s quite saturated but there’s something else going on with it. I think it has to do with the recording technique and some EQ/comp in the mix, but I have no idea how to get there.

    The bass has a unique attack....it’s very 60’s and awesome.

    The damage was obviously already done.
