The central parameter in the first rounds of sound clips is the RATIO. Since I am using a passive Fender Jazz bass, the INPUT setting begins at 50%. Then – for each RATIO variation – there are 3 different INPUT settings: 50%, 75% and 100%, each driving the compression circuit a little harder than the previous.
But first, take a quick listen to the DRY version, so you know what the bass sounds like on its own.
The next round builds on the same concept, demonstrating the RATIO 8 setting…
