How can I avoid the disturbing "noise" or "squeak"???
What "disturbing "noise" or "squeak"??? - I don't hear any!!
You probably mean the fret noise.
Try to minimize and optimize your finger movements, it's also important to place your fretting finger very close to the fret, e.g. you play the E on the A string (7th fret) you need to place your finger almost on top of that 7th fret.
Using a lighter touch in both hands will also help.
In other words, work on your technique -> practice.
Thanks for your advice!
Do you think that also the bass-model can influence the fret noise?
It's much more likely to be bad technique.
If I play the bass over the amp and the speakers(Ampeg SVT 4 Pro and Ampeg speakers) everthing sounds nice.
But when I record the sound on the computer over the balanced line out of my amp, the sound is terrible. (WHY?)
Although the sound is fine over the "normal" ampeg-speakers!!!
Pls help me
The sound is different because it is not coming out of a dedicated bass cab. To capture that sound you'd need to mic the cab. And while it might sound horrible soloed, it might not be noticeable at all in the mix later on.
Did you ever record via a DI-Box?
I always go direct. Whether it may be through an amp's DI, a DI box or direct from the bass into the mic preamp (only with active basses).
Hm, that's interesting. Because for me, the sound coming out of the speakers and recorded via Mic is far better than the sound coming from the balanced line output.
The sound of the balanced line output is very "high" and sounds scratchy. I was afraid because I was not sure if this "normal"?
Does someone of you have an mp3-file or something similar with a "plain" bass-recording track? It would be very helpfull if I know how it SHOULD sound. ;-)
I would be very glad if someone could send me such a track. (just a few seconds)!
if somebody does - here my mail:
