Session bassist, great sound.

Martin Lucas Nastri on SoundBetter

My specialty is recording basses for Indie/Pop/Rock songs, I may be new here but believe me I'm not new to recording it's already been 20 years doing this, and I participated in more than 60 published albums. I am going to show you a great commitment to your songs or productions, feel free to write me on the contact button and chat about music.

I have 3 epic bass guitars:
Vintage Fender Musicmaster 78 for pop or indie sounds.
Fender P-Bass Standard 95 w/great modern sound and rock vibes and a Fender Jazz Bass Ri62 classis sounding bass for any style.
Recording w/ Crimsom 3 by SPL with awesome sound, plus an Aguilar ToneHammer 500.
If you are looking for someone to give you solutions and quality sound for recording your bass, I think I am the right person for the job.
Bass lines are very important, and having versatility with finger, slap or pick style is important when it comes to providing different sounds to your songs. All that I have worked very hard and it is my passion to record that style of songs.

Feel free to ask me any questions, it will be a pleasure to work together

Interview with Martin Lucas Nastri

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

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

  14. A: -do you like my musical style? -If it is made with love and neat, I like it.

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

  16. A: To think that it is easy to play the bass and not see that it is a frequency of the most fundamental in a track.

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

  18. A: What is the objective of the project, what music inspires them, and if they have bass player references how they would like their album to sound.

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

  20. A: Always be open and trust the fresh ear of those who are going to record an instrument as important as the bass. Have good proposals and defined, but never closed.

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

  22. A: 1-Laptop 2-Fender P-Bass 3-My audio interface 4-One cable 5-Headphones

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

  24. A: My destiny with the bass was thanks to some friends who started a band in 1999. Thanks to them I was able to start my way in a teen band that played punk music (green day, blink 182), then my interest grew and I took more than 10 years of bass classes with different teachers and there came my leap as a musician and the decision to be a professional player.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: My style would be the rhythmic versatility and the constant search to innovate with the songs.

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

  28. A: John Mayer or Jon Brion. I think their music is the one that reaches me the most and sharing with them would give me a great lesson as well as an unforgettable experience.

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

  30. A: The songs are always first, listen to it many times and only then will you take the instrument considering the artistic search.

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

  32. A: Indie/Rock/Pop

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: Musicality.

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

  36. A: I think I give him criteria when choosing a good mix between sound and musicality, usually the song improves a lot thanks to the experience with the instrument.

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

  38. A: I always listen to the songs several times, having asked some prior questions about the artistic search that the producer or artist wants to reach. Then I follow up with a couple takes of the songs to get into the mood and the experience almost always gets me on the right track when it comes to choosing the right audio.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I have 3 basses that represent my sound. 1-Fender Musicmaster 78 'with flat strings. 2-Fender P-Bass American Standard 95 which gives me a classic but modern sound, I usually use it to record Rock with a pick. 3-Fender Jazz Bass Ri62 MIJ, which I usually use for a standard sound with which we feel familiar. 4-I use an SPL Crimson 3 as an audio interface, and an Aguilar Tone Hammer 500 as a pre amp. 5-I usually work with Ableton live 10 to record.
