Say hello to Brian "TheHook" Williams, our Featured Neuro Artist for the month of June, 2021. Truth be told, this Master of Tone/Synth Bass Guru was shrouded in mystery prior to this article. The only thing we knew about "TheHook" is that his C4 Synth presets sounded divine. Of course the question on everyone's mind has to be, why do they call him "The Hook?" Well, as Brian puts it, "the bass is always THE HOOK!"
For the past two years, nary a Source Audio bass or guitar pedalboard, constructed for trade shows and demo videos, is without a number of C4 Synth presets created by TheHook. And we are not the only ones who love what Brian does with the our pedals - his presets consistently rack up significant downloads and Likes from C4 Synth owners around the globe. Brian is also beginning to build quite an impressive library of Ultrwave Multiband Bass Processor presets. We highly encourage everyone reading to scroll down and check out some of the sound clips of Brian's preset, or better yet, connect your C4 Synth or Ultrawave Multiband Processor (either the standard or bass versions) to the Neuro Editor and try his presets yourself.
Of course, all of our Featured Neuro Artists get a free Source Audio pedal. If you want to learn more about our Neuro Artist Program, follow this link - we are always on the lookout for the next Featured Artist. Brian chose for his free pedal, the EQ2 Programmable Equalizer - we hope it brings him many thumping lows and sparkling highs.
Below you will find a magnificent collection of Brian's most popular presets as well as some of his personal favorites. We hope everyone finds some inspiration in these sounds, either as Brain created them or as jump-off points for creating your own custom presets. Brian remarked, "I always wonder how presets sound to others with different equipment, technique, etc. Keep in mind these were created on bass guitars with active preamps, and typically with compression at the beginning of the signal chain. Although results may vary, the basic building blocks are there to be tweaked for each person's particulars. Good Luck!"
