Jeff Schmidt Solo Bass: Still Silhouette

I was trading emails with bassist Jeff Schmidt the other day, and realized it has been a long time since we featured him. Way too long.

This one goes way back to 2007, with Jeff performing his original tune, “Still Silhouette”. Jeff shared the tech behind his fretless’ synth-like sound, saying “it’s a long tail reverb into a harmonizer that createsdelayed pitch shifting effects and pans them across the spectrum. Then it goes into a distortion and eq and is added to the main signal. It’s a process I used quite a bit to varied degrees on my solo CD.”
