Using a Sub Bass Synth In Worship

  • Written By 
  • David Curran

More and more worship music is including a bass synth in the mix of the song because it can create a new kind of bass tone that can’t be achieved with a bass guitar alone.

In this video, David Curran (Elevation Worship & Lauren Daigle) walks you through his approach to synth bass and shows you exactly how he uses it on stage and in the studio.

Adding a sub bass into your mix can add a new element of low end, that an electric bass has a hard time accomplishing. In this video, I give a full rundown of this Moog Sub Phatty. I go through all the panels and simply it for you so it’s not so overwhelming. Watch now!
