Touch Sensitive, the producer of possibly the most omni-present bassline on Australian airwaves in the past 12 months, happens to be a real bass-player …and a damn good one at that. Anyone who’s seen his one-man shows of live disco bass will certainly know this already. So, we thought who better to get some bassline tips from?

This video excerpt, filmed at our music producers conference INPUT, sees Michael showing techniques for sampling, working with samples, writing bass-lines (for bass players and non-bass players alike) and the somewhat tricky art of combining live bass guitar and synth basses.
