bass into m-audio?

Discussion in 'Recording Gear and Equipment [BG]' started by dees, Aug 10, 2005.

  1. hey, I want to build my own 'studio', to record some stuff I wrote. I'm planning on buying an m-audio mobilepre USB, to record everything on my laptop. But does anyone uses this thing? Main question is: wil my bass sound good when plugged in directly to the m-audio (and then to my laptop)? I have a line6 POD for guitar, but don't have anything like that for bass (I don't use effects and stuff like that on bass).
    Thanks in advance

    Just go directly into the M-Audio, using the mic input (no boost) and do the EQing and FX in the software.

    I think it will sound ok going direct, I would certainly give that approach a try since it won't cost anything. For myself personally I like the sound of a mic'ed cabinet better but that's much harder to do. You might want to give the Pod a try as well, on a clean setting it might sound very very good for bass, I would certainly experiment with that thing and see how you like it.
