I don't know if this is a setup or an electronics problem. Mods, if I guessed wrong, help! My primary bass is a MTD Kingston Heir with Bartolini pickups. Passive. D Addarrio XLs. Last weekend, I tracked in a well equipped studio. Used my Ashly SC-40 as a DI, (eq bypassed) into an Amek TAC Scorpion II into ProTools. The TAC is a real hot rod, it has all the right chips in it and sounds fantastic. On playback, it sounded like was running a chorus effect. Burned the session to CD, listened to it at my place where I have B&W monitoring. Sure enough, bass sounds like it has chorus added. Dang it. My live rig doesn't have the clarity to have shown me this. For a live rig, I use the Ashly + QSC + EBS 611 or a pair of EV TL606s. Is that how MTD basses sound or have I done something wildly wrong in setup? I also recorded a handful of track as alternates with my EMG-JV loaded SX, and they sounded big, fat and right.
