First off - I love my sound. It's an 07 Stingray 5 HS. I play through a Markbass TA501 through an Ampeg SVT-410HLF. When I'm playing (usually at churches with really nice PA support), I usually run DI out from my Markbass head, and sometimes I'll just run DI straight through a crappy DI box. Anyways... I have found a few live situations where I'll be playing and it feels great on stage. My bass is rich and full and when I push my Stingray it really growls. THEN... I get a copy of a soundboard recording from the gig and it sounds really thin and floppy, especially when I push/drive the bass (pluck the string hard). My question is this: I feel like I hate my bass and amp when I hear the recordings, but I don't feel like the recording is an accurate representation of what sound is actually happening. So... Could the problem be a bad DI (both in the Markbass head and just a bad DI box)? I'm willing to invest in a Radial JDI or an Avalon U5 if I need to. I can't stand the sound the board is receiving (or at least what's represented on the recording). Any help would be appreciated!
