DL vM5 tracking bass for a Moba Jones tune – 8-2815
This a video of Carey playing a tune that he and his song writing/music partner (aka Moba Jones) are working on. (This tune is in a rough mix state.) Carey is using a Nordy DL vM5 (Dan Lutz Signature) bass. The pickups are a BigMan and a NP5 – both located right up on each other in their “proper” locations. For this particular track, Carey used the BigMan only in parallel mode with the controls all flat. Carey tracked directly into a UAD Apollo Quad using the Neve 1073 Unison plugin only. He added a dbx 160 plug for compression on the bass. (Carey comments that the mix had plenty of UAD plugs to make it sound the way he likes it!)

Both Dan and Carey were extremely stoked at the wide array of tones the new DL VM5 can cover.
