Inspired by the "Ok Computer" thread, I see that a number of people have favoured tracks with pronounced bass that they use to evaluate equipment and set up. I thought it might be interesting to have a thread where people could offer suggestions.

Perhaps these tracks could be itemised according to whether they:

1. Reveal bass clarity and articulation

2. Present bass slam and impact

3. Present very deep bass

Obviously these are not mutually exclusive categories.

And perhaps this thread should be in one of the other forums. But it is intended to help evaluate Meridian equipment and setup.

Eminem - The Eminem Show - Without Me

Very heavy bass.

Edit: I think this is a great idea and something for the Wiki once we've agreed the categories and "scoring system".

"The Sad Bag Of Shakey Jake" by "Humble Pie". Before I had Meridian Kit, this track was unplayable ref bass. Of course, now its no problem and a great track from Steve Marriott.

Bran Van 3000 - Everywhere (album version)

20 seconds in, 30hz bass at -24dB.

A good test of in room bass resolution/response.

Patricia Barber's "Mourning Grace" off the Cafe Blue album has some great natural percussive bass. Not super deep, but good for assessing bass dynamics and accuracy.

Also, on blu-ray, Jeff Beck at Ronnie Scott's is a fantastic concert and great bass test for electric bass and drum.

I see that I just hit 300 posts, so 300!

Hans Zimmer. Almost everything he does has powerful, deep bass. The Dark Knight Rises soundtrack has some sub 20hz content in there and loud. Try track 3.

The bass quality is quite reverberant but very pleasant.

Off of the "Grosse Point Blank" soundtrack, Let My Love Open The Door. This track offers long bass tones. If your system is set up properly, you hear deep bass but you also easily hear the higher parts of the song. If your bass is not correct, the bass muddies up the whole track.

Tron Legacy Soundtrack has a wealth of low tones as well.

The first track on Koyaanisqatsi by Philip Glass has some awesome organ notes that cover (1) and (3). Its one of my standard test disks.

For deep bass try Unfinished Sympathy by Massive Attack on the Blue Lines album. I didn't realise it had any bass until I heard it through a sub!

Although nice, transient bass is a great test of a speaker, I listen to a lot of organ music. It's not just the range, it's the rapid response to a changed pedal or stop, and just keeping that background note. Lots of systems run out of puff after a few seconds.

Obviously lots of stuff out there, but if you have SACD then Albrecht's transcription of bits of Wagner's Ring for organ is a doozy. So is the last movement of Mahler's Second (again, if you have SACD the Fischer is a cracker) with its basso profundo.

If you have a Meridian processor and have ever wondered what Ambisonics sounds like, any of the York Minster recordings from York Ambisonics will give your system a run for its money. All the organ works are excellent.

Hi

Some nice records with good bass.

Julienne Taylor, Live at the Lyric-Ever Fallen In Love With Someone You Shouldntve two minutes in there is a nice drum solo. Both weight and speed.

India Arie, Acoustic Soul - Video. Lots of bass.

Claire Martin, He never mentioned love - He never mentioned love. Soft and nice bass, very subtle.

Alison Krauss, Raising Sand - Rich Woman.

The Chemical brothers, Dig your own hole - Block rocking beats. Deep powerful and lasts all the song.

Chris Jones, Moonstruck - Long after you gone. Very nice, very deep, very good.

Daniel Lanois, Shine - I love you. Deep, smooth, like a bass blanket.

Eagles, Hell freezes over - Hotel California. Really nice drums.

Kari Bremnes, Reise - Sangen om Ka Ho Anna Drmte om. Bass in plenty.

Terry Eavans, Blues Masters - Down in Mississippi. Speed and weight, a classic in my collection.

Peder af Ugglas, Autum Shuffle - Harvest song. Very well recorded, but hey, its OPUS 3.

Portishead, Dummy - Its a fire. The sweet and near recorded voice with that deep bass under...its almost magic.

Rammstein, Reise, Reise - Los dark punchy kick drum and more.

Richard Thompson, Mock Tudor - Sibella, Cooksferry Queen, Bathseba smiles. Very much and very good.

Stevie Ray Vaughan, Couldnt stand the weather - Tin Pan Alley. Deep, punchy and heavy. A very good song.

U2, POP - If you wear that velvet dress. Insane amounts...best sounding U2 record IMHO.

Charpentier, Te Deum - March of Kettledrums. My recording is from Hamonia Mundi.

Charpentier, Te Deum - Te Deum, motet for 8 voices, chorus & orchestra, H. 146: Prlude. We who live in Europe have never heard this track beore...

Aaron Copland, Billy the Kid - Gun Battle. I own two recordings of this ballet. One with Michael Tilson Thomas and the other wit Antal Dorati. The recording with Dorati is more bombastic, more violent. Tilson recording is smoother, nicer. But listen to both and judge for yourself.

This is a few tips from Sweden.

Happy listening and take it careful.

Best regards, Per Nilsson, Sweden

If anyone wants more info about the records please just send me a PM.

The last few tracks of that movement are my standard test for any system. It has such a range of volumes, frequency extremes, and complex textures. I use Rattle's CD simply because I have been listening to it for more than 20 years and think I know how it sounds.

I shivered just thinking about it. I now want to hear it through 8Ks! I have a boxed set of lovely late 1960s Copland recordings, which be conducted himself and were recorded at Walthamstow Town Hall of all places!

Actually, neither. Good point. I only own the soundtrack CD. Tho i saw the film in the cambridge Arts Cinema in the late 80s

Do you have either DVD or Bluray? I take it the latter is a shoo-in if i wanted a video version?

Have always used Erykah Badu, "Baduism", track 1, 'Rimshot'. Fantastic track with hugely testing bass!

Bluray is shoo-in for both video and new 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. Region 1 only mind.


Sooloos, Roon, G series (with LPS upgrade), 800 series (with LPS upgrade), HD621, AC200, Prime and PS, DSPs old and new.

Purdeys, Moke, Leica, 'Blad. Only the best.

I'll be the first to suggest the obvious:
Bass Test by the Chemical Brothers.

Also good are:
Seasick Steve: You Can't Teach an Old Dog New Tricks - pretty much the whole album with bass guitar and drums

For more electronic bass:
Propellerheads: Decksdrumsandrockandroll
Phlash and friends: Deep Electronic Sounds

Oh and any of the Fabric Albums - all 130 of them smile

Current favourite Fabric 30: Rub-N-Tug.


This is my personal account. My dealer account (Clever & Simple - Peter) is now up and running smile

Good point. I find that a good test for that sort of thing is Saint-Saens, "Symphony No. 3 (Organ)", 'Maestoso'. Can the orchestra start on time and be heard with weight and authority after the stupendous crash of the organ chord and its follow-up?

Hello Guys,
Some killer bass tracks for you to try,

Arab Strap - Here We Go (from Philophobia album)

The cooper temple Clause - Music Box (from Kick up the Fire)

Idaho - Gone (from Year After Year) not massively bassy but one reviewer once said this was the heaviest song he had ever heard, Heavy as in weight, it feels like it could crush you!!

Portrait of Mr Boogie ( from Sinister soundtrack) great track but from about 2 minutes in...wow

And just incase anyone wants to feel blood drip from their ears!! try this for sheer guitar power,
Grinderman - No Pussy Blues

Happy painful listening

Nick

I would think the 1812 Overture should suffice.
Another old school favorite is Bela' Fleck - Flight of the Cosmic Hippo. Just listened to it this weekend. Maybe the first Phil Collins solo album.

Some left field suggestions.

Yes Talk. State of Play (Track 4) - there is one note that steps down in a sequence and really drives very very low or Endless Dream a) Silent Spring (Track 7) - which just has the most epic full range attack start. Generally sounds great on DSP kit.

Lenny Kravitz Are You Going To Go My Way Sister. Very warm, very low in parts, very tricky to remain discrete and differentiated from the rest. Exactly the opposite of attack or slam, but really differentiates systems on the bass response and tone. On the same album Are You Going To Go My Way the title track has a great bass guitar fill/solo half way through thats very difficult for systems to keep up with with everything else going on.

Inspired by this thread, I just found this from the album NHOP (Niels- Henning Orsted Pederson) "This Is All I Ask". Thanks to Steve H.
Track 10 "Fantasy in D Minor".
The album is great with many individual great contributions, but in the context of this thread this track hits the sweet spot.
Give it a listen 4:01 of wonderful, sublime double base, but make sure everything is tied down.

I didn't have time to read the whole thread so forgive any repeats! OK ones which spring to mind-

John Williams - Jurassic Park Theme on John Williams Greatest Hits 1969-1999 - very deep bass and quite plentiful, a good, balanced system will reveal texture and weight but not overwhelm the rest of the piece.

Aaron Copland - Fanfare for the Common Man on Copland 100 (Reference Recordings) Eiji Oue, Minnesota Orchestra. The opening bass drum shots are immense and should have impact and 'shake' and a looooot of decay.

TLC 'No Scrubs' and 'Waterfalls', very deep (almost sub) bass. Some systems I've heard (and owned, although not for long!) actually miss the deeper notes completely.

Madonna - Substitute For Love, again very deep bass, not plentiful, but a very low note some systems can't reproduce.

Madonna - Hey Mr DJ, ridiculous amount of well over the top bass.

Bjork - Hyperballad, on Post, also Army of Me. In fact a lot of her music has good bass.

Blackalicious - Blazing Arrow, Paragraph President (whole disc really).

Sky Cries Mary - Fresh Fruits for the Liberation, Moonbathing (great imaging song in general and some very low extension in this track).

David Gray - White Ladder, Sail Away (still the one track, where my sub level needs downward adjustment even when all other tracks play well, this thing works the sub).

Yes, this is one of the few tracks that my preferred MRC decay time doesn't sort out the boominess; but I live with it.

Or you could do, as we did tonight, and watch John Carpenter's 1982 The Thing & revel in the two note bass riff that runs through the film.

The following tracks will seriously test the quality of your bass,

Bass I love you - bassotronics
Alors on danse - solo dub remix - stromae
Saltwater - chicane
Beasts in the basement - original mix - reso - dubstep onslaught (a real test)
Swagger on a million - original mix - durty phresh - dubstep onslaught (as above)

The last two tracks may not be your cup of tea (they are on my sons playlist) but they are amazing tracks for testing bass output, depth and quality.

Start with your volume low!!!!!!!!

I also love this track [David Gray - White Ladder, Sail Away]but it's so boomy.

I have tried many different versions and they all sound the same and I just assumed it was a poor recording.

Not a "killer" bass track, but if you can get the piano from John Lennon's Imagine in control, you're on the right lines! A truly ghastly recording for such a seminal song (IMHO).

World Without Rules by Paul Haslinger (ex Tangerine Dream)

Has deep abundant synth bass running through most of the tracks. You'll need to throw MRC and room treatments at this one to properly follow the bass lines (and I haven't quite got there yet) but it's definitely a testing disc for your system.

Musically it's rather soundtrack-like (he went on to work in film) so it was probably designed as a showreel, and it can be a bit relentless over the whole album (even if you are a TD aficionado) but one or two tracks at a time can be fun for you and your system alike!

Cheers

George

Only tests pure low end, not slam or authority. But Bass Mekanik puts out pure tone frequency CDs. Great for testing exactly how low your system goes, any rattles in furniture, or distortion points. Also, their test sweeps find any room nodes.

Nelly Furtado. (Honest!). The Folklore Album, final track: Childhood Dreams. Pipe organ is used in parts of this track and there is plenty of use of the lower registers, 21hz and 16hz notes a plenty laugh

CalenW,
Did you know that the Meridian processors have a built-in sine wave sweep to help find room resonances?
I notice you don't have one in your sig, so this might be of limited use to yourself.

Hi EllisDJ
Thanks for the recommendation Lindsey Stirling. As always just under the free postage price from Amazon so had to buy Christy Moore album as well.
Win Win I suppose.

Not so much "Killer" but "Class", however very much worth a mention here.

Good point. I find that a good test for that sort of thing is Saint-Saens, "Symphony No. 3 (Organ)", 'Maestoso'. Can the orchestra start on time and be heard with weight and authority after the stupendous crash of the organ chord and its follow-up?


May I mention the Eschenbach recording of the Saint-Saens with the Philadelphia Orchestra and Olivier Latry on Ondine SACD? A live recording in a natural acoustic and, although to my ears this does result in one or two balance problems, the dynamics on SACD are spectacular.

Daft Punk - Doin' it right
The notes at 29" and 38" demolish walls ! (MRC off)

Patrick O'Hearn - Patience my friend
(Bass guitar - good for tuning MRC)

will.i.am - Geekin ( Note this defeats the bass protection model in my DSP5200s so take it easy or you may smell the music )

Pendulum - Tarantula. All round mental track but with EBA on it stays surprisingly lucid... Try this on a lesser system and it's a mess.

Linkin Park - FRGT/10. Slam, depth. (Interesting for seeing how clear the vocal (rap) stays when the bass is thumping out) EBA cleans this up. (Hardly anyone I know likes this track so don't waste your money unless you like LP and rap)

David Arnold - On Her Majesty's Secret Service (fast bass guitar plus some deep plunge effects). Good for timing checks / gauging room reverb. Good changes of pace.

Enjoy ;-)

I'm about to recommend something I've never listened to!

Have just bought 2 Rel G2 subs & the owner's manual has a setup section & Rel specifically recommend Track 4 from the James Horner OST to Sneakers (Columbia records). Reasons given?.....

"This has a repetitive bass drum throughout that gives plenty of time to move the woofer around, but more importantly the venue was quite large for this recording and therefore it has a very deep and large-scale bass signature. This type of track is perfect for the setup process & should be played at the highest reasonable level expected for system playback".

The CD seems pretty rare but I managed to pick one up on eBay & look forward to putting it through its paces in a few days' time.


Audio: MC200, G61R SL, HD621, DSP5500, 5500HC, DSP3100. Subs: 2 x REL G2.
Video: JVC X70, Black Diamond Zero Edge screen 129"(2.35).

I did something I've never done before. I bought a CD on the recommendation of someone who has never heard the piece.

I received the "Sneakers" CD from Amazon yesterday and have played it complete 4 time and the recommended track 4 "Cosmo...Old Friend" numerous times. I am at a disadvantage at this time as I am in Los Angels and my signature system with its 4 subs is in Las Vegas. Therefore I'm listening on an analog system with Pioneer S1-ex speakers. These Andrew Jones designed speakers are quite good but their bass is -3dB at 28 Hz.

When you say this was recorded in a large facility, I believe you. I felt like I was two thirds of the way back at the Hollywood bowl on a night when the coyotes were sleeping. The drum beat is as advertised, repeating and resonant. I would not use the term "killer" with "Cosmo..." as the drum was beat softly. I would say the CD would be best loved by those who enjoy classical or perhaps soft Jazz. I look forward to playing it on the Home system in a few weeks when I return to sin city.

The one track I have heard that has a bass line very few system can pick up is a track by Rudimental called Spoons.

I tried this on various systems at my previous employment at a shop called Oxford Audio Consultants.

The best speakers I found for digging the bass levels we the Kef Blades and they were going down to 23Hz using a dual mono Devialet set up.

We couldn't hear this bass section on Wilson Sasha 2 speakers or any Sonus faber or Magico set-ups.

I haven't tried it on any Meridian systems as yet.

Hi Adam,

After listening to the track snippets; I've just ordered 'Home' the album that 'Spoons' is on from Amazon.

I thought it would be good to give it a spin.

I can report, as I have it now. I really like this album (Home by Rudimental), so does my wife which surprised me a little as garage is not really her style (she prefers shed LOL).

The Spoons track has a deep kick drum running all the way though, it's deep but that's not the 'killer' bass, about half way in there's a much lower bass line that really tests the 8ks. That deep bass emerges ever now and again and right at the end track descends into an even lower register.

It's good fun to play esp. with the volume cranked up for a while.

Regards,
Carl

Yes, this is one of the few tracks that my preferred MRC decay time doesn't sort out the boominess; but I live with it.
FYI, having now listened to this track through STAX SR-009s, the boominess / distortion on this track is, IMO, a recording error / artefact. I actually used this as a test track for MRC and realize now that this was a mistake: this boominess should not be corrected beyond normal MRC; a real shame as it's a lovely track.

IIRC that album was a 4 track home recording. I forget on which track but you can hear odd house noises somewhere on it. Terrific considering he released it himself.

Some info is here. I think I remember the reviews at the time w.r.t. his recording. He had been trying to 'make it' as a performer for a long time.

I think it's a great album.

Just listened to 'Trust in you' by Paul Brady, 2nd track on Spirits Colliding. I'd forgotten how potent the intro bass is. Not often you hear a bass guitar growl like that. cool

I have a KEF demo disc entitled The KEF Uni-Q Demonstration: Various Artists, which was given to me by David Brown of Technosound (now no longer trading).
There is a track on it by Eddy Louis's, (French Jazz Hammond organist), called Blues for Klook. This track will test the bass on any system, depth, slam etc. It is not easy to get hold of but is well worth it. There is a version that can be heard on YouTube if you can endure the quality and certainly does not convey the scope to the track. smile

+1 Bjork 96/24

Dynamic range with both strings and huge bass synth tracks is excellent. In places more accessible than some of her material; others times just as weird wink I like it.

London Grammar - Hey Now

Massive Attack - Angel

Daft Punk - Give life back to music

Daft Punk - Lose yourself to dance

Deadmau5 - The Veldt

The daft punk bass lines on their Random Access Memories album have got some great texture and detail present, I have used it to show off the dynamic range of my 5k's to a few people who don't understand or believe what digital actives can do. All converted!

+2 for most Bjork albums, especially the DTS surround re-masters. Also, Rain by the Beatles is my go to for deep, but tight and melodic bass.

In my frustration with MQA / Roon / Squeezebox / Explorer2 and the state of the world in general, I've just treated my neighbours cool to a quick blast of :-

Pendulum : Granite (from the album In Silico). eek

I actually found out about the track from this video which was one of the things that piqued my interest in the big DSP's & finally led to my choice / purchase.
Not that massive SPL's were the reason, but the sense of control - and the sheer clarity + punch !
I've not regretted the decision for a minute, and very very occasionally, this is a great track with which to let the 8000's really fly.... smirk

I am just listening to Kaleidoscalp by Buckethead - you may find it similarly cathartic of frustrations. Only tried it through DSP33s so far eek

Precision deep bass with a kick.
Yello - junior b
Amazing intro and some very cool stereo imaging (in Trifield)


If you want to test bass chaos i would recommend the Tron Legacy soundtracks by Daft Punk. Brutal bass all over the low range!

PS: I love bass! So keep posting bass tracks laugh

I've got the Yello - Junior B ... totally agree.

I'll check them out when I'm at home (the office is not the place for bass wink

The deep bass on TRON Legacy will really put your system to the test...
In my "old" 3x5200HC setup all speakers displayed "HOT" on the display after 15 minutes at level 85 laugh It sounds smashing in Trifield as well.

The second track "Jogging" is doing wild things to my DSP33s and my office windows!

With the advent of Tidal MQA Streaming

Try this Kaleo "A/B" Track 2, "Way Down We Go". It certainly does go down, so does Track 4 "Glass House". In fact the whole album is great if you are in the right receptive mood.

MQA 44k, play loud but ensure valuables are tied down.

Hans Zimmer is really terrific. I often go back to the Gladiator OST. That was heavy in places but on an orchestral scale. The Bladerunner OST is awesome on an electronic scale.

Reminds me of the panel discussion between Zimmer, Numan, Jarre and Moby. Much respect between that group.

If you like the slightly “other-worldliness” of this sound track then try Arca’s track called Mutant. That is another extreme bass work out. MQA too which I think really helps with the visceral presentation.

Nick

+1 on Hans Zimmer. The Interstellar soundtrack is quite bass heavy with the use of the organ, but it wasn't until I went to see Interstellar Live at the Royal Albert Hall that I realised a domestic hifi system is hard pushed to reproduce a live organ.

Unless I've tried the wrong album - what a load of ****.
Multiple poor remixes of the same track ?!
https://listen.tidal.com/artist/3657500

Not what I recognise as a Soundtrack or Album really - I was looking forward to a decent selection from the window-shattering cacophony in the film - far preferable to the dross from Doug Laurent that I wasted 43 minutes on last night...
