Yes Music Podcast

I asked our friend Miguel Falcão to tell me a bit about how Chris Squire achieved such a remarkable bass sound for Tormato. Instead of sending me a few bullet points, Miguel was kind enough to record a complete audio description of the technical minutiae of the master's solution. Mark and I listen to this amazing in-depth piece and discuss a few of the points Miguel makes.

Many thanks to Miguel and if you haven't heard his staggeringly accurate Yes bass covers, then you are missing out a great deal. See the links in the show notes at to remedy that immediately.

  • How did Chris Squire achieve 'that' sound for Tormato?
  • What technology did he employ?
  • Was the approach the same on every song on Tormato?

Listen to the episode and let us know what you think!
