    Hello,
    My playing style consists of a djent/metalcore/deathcore and I was wondering how I could make my ghost notes more prevalent. I use a pick and I have my TREB up all the way, is there anyway I could make the percussive-ness easier too hear? I know After The Burial does a lot of ghost-note action and I want to know how to make those ghost-notes stick-out like they do.

    Would distorting my signal help at all? What specific frequency ranges should I boost?

    Your thoughts appreciated

    A compressor with the attack set between maybe 5 a 20 ms and a hefty ratio should do the trick!

    The Mxr bass comp is a a good choice for under 200 dollars. Empress makes a great one, but it's a bit more costly and perhaps a bit more complicated to use, but sounds really great IMO.
