College Band Musical Decisions

With regards to our college band, along the way we made some recent musical decisions that would define our sound; the main one being using a synth. We decided on using a synth instead of a bass, as to have a more electronic and experimental sound. The synth also provides us with an array of sounds at our disposal, which we utilise well depending on the section of the song; for example a lighter sound with clean guitar and then a heavy distorted tone with distorted guitar in the breakdown. Our other musical decision was to include a sample pad, which will be activated during various sections of the songs. The samples will be of famous dictators/public figures and taken from various YouTube videos, and then ripped off using http://offliberty.com/
