My Bass 400 has a hot DI. It sounds awesome, but even at moderate amp volumes- less than what I'd use for rehearsal- it slams both of my recording interfaces, clip city. I have to run the interfaces at 0 on their input and I still have to run my amp lower than normal and cant slap without cutting my bass volume down to like 30-50%. Without driving my tubes the way I like 'em I get a shadow of my real tone. This is cramping my style basically. Anyone else have a similar problem? What's the best way to handle it on a budget? I can't even record with my D180 its DI blows stuff up. I was thinking some kind of mic pre may be able to control things.
