Bruno Migliari, 8VB Studio on SoundBetter

Need bass? Look no further! Electric, fretless or upright. Bassist for The Four Brasil 2020, The Voice Brasil 2012, Frejat, Simone, Ivan Lins, Milton Nascimento, Marcos Valle, Ana Carolina, Maria Gadú, Paulinho Moska, Lobão, and many others. 30 years of studio and stage experience - and I'll put it to good use while recording bass tracks for you.

I will provide a top quality, groovy bass line for your song, regardless of genre. And I'll spice it with a "brazilian flavor", if the music calls for it. I will send you at least two bass line options for each song, so you can choose or edit them together to your taste. I will deliver a track within 24 hrs, but will conclude a bulk request (say 5 tracks) within 3 days.
Choose electric, fretless or acoustic basses, send me your song and have the bass tracks delivered to you with pristine quality within a day!
I have worked in this fashion for The Voice Brasil and The Four Brasil TV shows, as well as for artists from all over the globe, such as Avi Wisnia (Philadelphia, USA), Lokua Kansa (Kinshasa, Congo), Elsa Chapman (London, UK), Paul J. Riley (London, UK), Que Montana (Harare, Zimbabwe), Denise Reis (New York, USA) - to name a few.

    Another swift and easy interaction with Bruno! His upright bass added great texture and character to the existing synth bass and revived my interest in completing the track.

    How can one complain about Bruno?
    In the morning I had a track with no bass, and by the evening I was bopping away and nicely distracted from the external global pandemic.
    I spent a month messing around with the track when really I just needed a day of Bruno. Will be reaching out again.

    I have done a lot of work with Bruno. That should speak Volumes. He is a great arranger and my go to bass player. As we keep working together, I am becoming more impressed with his bass work. He seems to know what I want and to deliver stellar bas parts. Don't tell anybody, because I don't want him to become so in demand that he has no time to do my tracks

    I wrote what was what was supposed to be a samba several years ago. When I realized that Bruno was from Brazil’ I asked him if he could arrange to have a rhythm section, a keyboard and bass part done for it. He did two different takes with very different feels, both of which were excellent. The musicians he hired were top notch. The song sounds so much better than I ever expected it would and I am very very happy with Bruno and I think I have five or six more songs to do with him but will keep

Interview with Bruno Migliari, 8VB Studio

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: I'm the bass player on the TV show The Four Brasil, which keeps my studio chops in top gear, all the while touring with popular Brazilian singer/songwriter Frejat and singer Simone. I still manage to keep my weekly jazz and pop gigs, and I've been doing a lot of bass recordings on my studio too.

  3. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  4. A: Yes. Drummer Cássio Cunha. The guy is a true monster when it comes to Brazilian grooves! I also recommend checking out drummer/producer Tom Dupree III and guitarists Billy Brandão, Bernardo Bosisio and Pedro Silveira - all great Brazilian guitarists.

  5. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  6. A: Call me! Send your files my way and I'll make them groove (lol). Seriously, provide as much guidelines as you see fit - written parts are welcome, as well as midi-bass reference tracks (please send those as separate tracks, so I can mute them when recording my own bass). Provide the needed technical info: bpm and desires sample-rate.

  7. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  8. A: My 74' Fender Jazz Bass, my 75' Fender Precision Fretless Bass, my 1900' Czech Upright Bass (with french bow!), my Ampeg Micro VR amp/cab stack and my Fender Rhodes electric piano!

  9. Q: How would you describe your style?

  10. A: I groove hard, but elegantly! I guaranty people will move to my bass lines.

  11. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  12. A: My own writing is jazz-oriented with a strong groove to it (I call my music "atmospheric jazz"), but I work extensively with major Brazilian recording acts in the pop/rock vein, so I'm very used to laying down good old round and greasy lines that "glue" in with the drums.

  13. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  14. A: Recording system: Apple iMac w/2.93 GHz Intel Core i7 processor Logic PRO DAW software UA Apollo audio interface with tons of UA plug ins UA 4-710d Mic Pre-amp Assorted Audio Technica and AKG mics. Available Basses: 74' Fender Jazz Bass (rosewood neck) 77' Fender Jazz Bass (maple neck) 13' Fender Jazz Bass (rosewood neck) 76' Fender Precision Bass PJ (maple neck) 75' Fender Precision Bass PJ (fretless rosewood neck) 91' Music Man Sting Ray 5 (maple neck) circa 1900 Acoustic Bass of Czech origin (carved pine) 10' NS Design CRT4 electric upright bass Guasti-Bottoni french style bows Available Amplifiers: Ampeg Micro VR w/ Ampeg 2x10 cabinet Gallien-Krueger 800RB w/Mesa Boogie 1x15 and 2x10 cabinets Available DI/preamp boxes: EBS Micro bass II Radial Engineering Bass Bone Tech21 Sans Amp Bass DI Tech21 Character Series VT Bass Available effect pedals: EBS MultiComp Compressor EBS MultiDrive Overdrive EBS UniChorus Chorus/Flanger EBS OctaBass Octaver EBS BassIQ Envelope Filter EBS DynaVerb Reverb MXR M87 Bass Compressor MXR M182 El Grande Bass Fuzz MXR M288 Bass Octave Deluxe MXR M82 Bass Envelope Filter Electro-Harmonix Bass Balls Envelope Filter

  15. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  16. A: Michael League, Dave Holland, Christian McBride, Marcus Miller, Meshell Ndege Ocello, Sting, Pino Palladino, Jaco Pastorius, Esperanza Spalding, Tony Levin, Peter Gabriel, Prince, Avishai Cohen, Tower of Power, Steely Dan, Banda Black Rio, Djavan, Milton Nascimento, Herbie Hancock, Joe Zawinul, Stevie Wonder, James Brown.

  17. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  18. A: I record bass tracks (normally two options) for artists from all over the globe. They send me an mp3 file with rhythm/harmony track providing the tempo and I record the bass of their choosing (acoustic, electric or fretless) over it, and send them finished WAV. files when I'm done. Quick and easy, top-notch quality.

  19. Q: What's your typical work process?

  20. A: When I first get a song from a client, a listen to it with full attention trying to grasp everything the song suggests me - be it rhythm/harmony/melody - related or lyrics-related - and build up a "draft baseline" in my head. Then I compare it with any reference the client might have provided (be it an audio track or a chart) and try to balance that reference with my own interpretation of the song. When I'm satisfied with what I created, I proceed to record the actual bass tracks. Usually the first version stays very close to the chart or reference (verbatim, if it's written part), whereas the second option is a more personal interpretation of the song. I encourage clients to combine both tracks on their final bass track, building a final result that meets their taste and still retains some unique flavor.

  21. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  22. A: I bring a Brazilian flavor to it, definitely. But I do it with "arranger's ears" - being an arranger myself - with lots of concern regarding instrumentation, dynamics, space and, first and foremost, the groove! If it doesn't groove, it ain't happening!

  23. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  24. A: Groove and feel. I'm well-versed in many different styles and I thrive on music that has african roots to it - be it Brazilian, North-American, Afro Cuban or African.

  25. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  26. A: Try to get the rhythm section playing together in the room. Magic is bound to happen!

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: Peter Gabriel. He's a man of the world, his music has the most basic, earthy elements as well as the ethereal, high tech contemporary elements. A true artist of his time.

  29. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  30. A: I started playing bass when I was 14 years old, and in three years I got my professional musician license. One year later I finished school and went straight to music University, where I graduated as an Acoustic Bass Major. I have never done anything else with my life but play my basses since then, and I've done it with many musicians from different parts of the world, for 30 years now - and counting…

  31. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  32. A: What the final instrumentation on the song will be (will you add more stuff to it after the bass is added? will there be other low-end instruments, like synth bass or heavy percussion? Will it have strings or horns added to the song afterwards?). This usually guides my approach in terms of how much space should I leave, in which spots should I step out a little bit, etc…

  33. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  34. A: That a track should be re-recorded ad infinitum… I shouldn't - although technology might suggest otherwise. If it's good, it will happen with two or three takes.

  35. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  36. A: Could you play something like what I heard on that song on your SoundCloud playlist? I get that a lot, and it's all good, since I put those songs there to showcase my abilities, therefore they are serving the purpose…

  37. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  38. A: I love everything about it. I get to be creative and to collaborate with other artists like myself, the music community knows no boundaries or frontiers.

  39. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  40. A: I'll make your song groove!

  41. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  42. A: Both. There's stuff that simply sounds better in "analog mode", while other stuff sound more "whole" in digital. For instance, I prefer to use analog pedals on my basses, but enjoy listening to CDs more than vinyls.

  43. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  44. A: I recently produced, arranged and played bass and Fender Rhodes on Avi Wisnia's new single, "Sky Blue Sky". It was a great "over-the-web" experience collaborating with him, he is a very talented songwriter and have some good arrangement ideas as well, and he asked me to produce de basic tracks for this Brazilian-inspired song, for which I called upon some very talented musicians: Marco Lobo (percussion) and Bernardo Bosisio (guitars and cavaquinho), handling myself the upright bass and the Fender Rhodes. Avi then added his voice, a melodica and a Fender Rhodes track of his own in Philly, and then sent me back his files so I could mix everything here at my own 8VB studio. Mastering was done in the US side of the production, and now the track is out in the wind. Fantastic!
