Free Sample Friday: Ring Mod Bass

We have a guest Free Sample Friday today courtesy of reader Darren Halm.  Take it away, Darren!

"I recorded these abrasive samples playing my fretless Fender bass through a bevy of pedals including a Catalinbread Heliotrope "Analog Bit Crusher", an Electro-Harmonix Ring Thing and a Devi Ever Soda Might. Put into a cranked Ampeg bass amp and recorded with a Zoom H4 about 6 inches from the cone. The combination of Ring Mod and fretless slides produced a lot of useful(?) wobbling. These could easily be used to create basslines on their own, could supplement synth bass, or could be used for bass "fills". 20 samples at 24 bit 44.1 Wav.  [Approximately 22 MB]"
