I recently asked which TesseracT song our fans would most like me to do a play through video for. The result was "April". This is a very straight forward track that focuses mainly upon the feel and the groove. I honestly don't think I play this track precisely the same twice, as the intensity and emotion will change each performance depending upon my mood, the environment and the sound I'm hearing.

Seeing as we're about to release an new version soon, I decided to film myself recording that one. So, I filmed and recorded three separate takes for three different angles, and then created a comp track for the final bounce. This is just a rough mix by me at my home studio, that is slightly bass heavy so you can more clearly define whats going on. I hope to soon have enough time to transcribe the whole album, at which point I will also publish tabs and manuscripts for our debut album 'One'.

In this recording I chose to use a Warwick Thumb BO BN for the deep dark sound it produces. This then went into an Electro Harmonix Black Finger Tube Compressor, and then straight into Pro Tools. The only plug in used was the Waves' G series EQ/Compressor Channel strip.

The new EP will be a collection of songs from One that have been approached at from a different point of view. All of this was inspired by an acoustic session we filmed whilst on tour in New York during our 2011 tour with Protest The Hero.

I am currently taking questions and teaching both Bass guitar and Sound Recording at http://www.bandhappy.com/profile/amos...
