    The bass sound is overdriven valve bass amps. Happened in the 60's and 70's due to that was all there was and the bass player was trying to keep the volume up with the guitarist LOL

    Thanks for your snark-free answer. Yes clearly the overdriven amp is a big part, but there’s something about the attack that I find interesting. Maybe it’s a compression thing. I’m no mix engineer so I dunno...just trying to learn.

    I wonder what kind of bass/strings/pickups/amp combination gets you mostly there.

    If you use an old passive Fender Precision, I don't know about newer passive ones, if has a natural attack that sounds compressed when played hard. I know I have one. If sounds kind of fuzzy when soloed but sits in the mix fantastic.

    A lot of old recordings were done on the Precision.

    Good advice...thanks man!

    I don’t own a real one (and finding a vintage one is not really in the budget) but I think Modo Bass has a model....I’ll try it out.

    You could try a Cheaper Mexican Precision but make sure it has the old style pickup setup with the single split layout.

    Without criticizing or commenting on the overall quality, this guy is using a lot of bit reduction and stuff like tape and vinyl saturation to intentionally (I assume intentionally) muddy up the sound. The guitar riffs at 2:17 imply tape emulators - the Wow/Flutter settings are ramped up to the n-th degree here. The other thing that implies heavy tape emulation is the absence of sibilance throughout the entire track. You can distort and mangle sounds with plugins like Kings Mics by Waves, Izotope Trash 2, SoundToys decapitator etc... Also the guitar riffs are way hotter than the lead vocal which makes no sense to me, but its a 'unique' characteristic of this guys mix be it good or bad.

    I wouldn't model this guys mixing work. I hope that helps identify some of the key components in whats going on here, but honestly, if I commissioned a mix and someone sent me that as a deliverable (that's the term for a finished recording) I'd fire them. Look - I think the elements in that mix are appealing to you have to do with arrangement, composition, source, and feel. I think the music is what you're drawn to. The mix itself is terrible.

    Thanks for your *opinion*
    I hope you feel better.

    Something tells me if I looked at your music collection, I’d feel much the same way, but I have good manners so I’d keep it to myself, Sparky.
