The bass sound on Awake "Thanks! I played that part on a Fender Mark Hoppus bass through a UA 6176. Used a lot of plugins to further shape things but that initial input did most of the coloring. I'm also not a great bass player so I don't play the parts correctly and generally only play the top two strings so that always effects the sound (the live bass player plays with the top 3 strings and it never sounds the same to me). If I recall I used a pick. Also haven't changed the strings since I bought the bass new about 4 years ago. It's the same bass we use live, here's Zac playing it (the stripes are console tape): http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/p3zVjRS9qrE/hqdefault.jpg When I first got the bass I had the pickups angled so that the higher strings were more muted. the pickups are closer to the low strings than the high ones."more
