Best HZ setting for Bass Gtr
Speaking in only general terms----what specific bass HZ settings for Low, Lo MIds, Hi Mids and Hi are more likely to result is a fat, round jazz tone on DAW recording (have Cubase).
As an experiment, I set the HZ levels at
1.Lows: 62 Hz
2.Lo Mids: 530 Hz
3.Hi Mids: 1200 HZ
4.Hi: 1510 Hz
Presence was Stressed in the following order of importance
3 (very close to 2 on the curve)
4 (with sharp drop off)
It did sound pretty good, but man, I was guessing!
Anyone straighten me out, please?
"Fat" = saturated low frequencies
"Round" = gentle attack
I think I'd be looking at a "character" compressor (1176?) more than an EQ, probably after an amp simulator. Then maybe a multiband compressor or a transient designer to further soften the attack by clamping down on the top-end transients.
-For lows I tend to go a bit higher, like 90-100hz
-I do a very deep, narrow cut around 130-135 to get rid of the boomy, boxy sound.
-Low mids around 450-500
-I've known a few Jbass guys that really like to boost around 800 hz a bit. When I play with a pick to cut the hell out of it (well, most everything between 300-900hz actually) because I go for a grindy Pick tone, but when I play fingerstyle I find that a little 800-850 peak adds a certain punch.
-For highs I tend to tweak 1.2k, 1.5k, 2.9k, and 5k depending on the mix. The higher highs are more for a Pick tone, but 1-1.5k are definitely of concern for mixing a Fingerstyle tone.
Mostly I'm talking about doing Post-EQ stuff within the DAW itself, not the amp. I usually run the amp fairly transparent and flat. Maybe a little low-mid contouring, but that's about it. Depends on the source amp/DI.
