Sorry if this is in the wrong forum. I looked at the options and it seemed to be a little of each. My goal is to be able to play a little from all my influences. Five Finger Death punch, Disturbed, Type o Neg, throw in some blues... My tastes are kind of eclectic mix of rock, metal, blues and some techno lol. I would like a bass that can be used to play my full range of interests. Im looking for a deep clear punchy sound. I would also like to add other instrument tracks, drum tracks and mix my own sounds electronically. Then just plug in my bass and jam. I have no idea where to start... Can I do this with one bass or does a person need different basses for different sounds ? What electronic gadgets are used for all the mixing and adding of sounds and other instruments ? Ive head of pedals, mixing boards, mixing software. I read all the different products available and cant figure out whats what... Do they all do the same thing ? Where do I start ?
