Antti Horttana on SoundBetter

Seasoned electric bassist with extremely broad experience in different genres of music with a pull towards metal music and rougher bass tones. Decent DSLR camera in possession for potential video recordings! Also a composer, audio engineer, arranger and a multi-instrumentalist (also singer) with no limits to make Your vision to become reality!

I'm a Finnish bassists, composer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist with over 10 years of recording, gigging and composing experience. As a bassist I specialize in technical metal music, but I appreciate all genres of music and have played and recorded a wide range of styles from Finnish folk music to death metal and from funk to pop music. I'm currently an active member of symphonic metal band Anthriel in which I play bass and sing backing vocals.

My compositions have been heard on Finnish television series, short films and commercials, and they range from modern disco to classic orchestral music. I have also made numerous arrangements and music productions for individual customers over the years.

I record all tracks through Focusrite Scarlett 18i20. Bass recordings are always delivered on two tracks; one with a clean DI and one with my personal tones I chose for the song. I have fretted, fretless and upright basses to choose from. I play mainly finger style, but I am proficient with a pick and slap.

This Musician-package comes with 8 years of studies in the art of professional musicianship and music pedagogy.

  1. Review by Samu Puuronen

    I know Antti as a great bassist. I've collaborated with him a few times and always been happy with what he comes up with. He is technically very skilled & knowledgeable in music theory. Great person to work with! I highly recommend him for all your bass needs.

  2. Review by Matias Lehtoranta

    I make metal, and Antti is wonderful to collaborate with - he communicates in excellent musical language and keeps things moving forward. He is dependable and fun-loving. Plays with conviction, pockets tightly and brings HUGE creative ideas. Highly recommended for progressive, djent, metalcore, any modern metal style.

    I was happy to use Antti's mix-ready tone in my recent release. He negotiates very respectfully about bass tone and its role in your mix, and communicates easily for tweaks. Also, want a totally nuts bass solo in your track? You better be ready!
