I really need help with this. I just don't like my tone when my band records. We record the bass from an SVT-350 rig XLR Direct Out into a nice mixing board and into a Soundblaster Audigy 2, if I'm not mistaken. At this point, I don't use any pedals whatsoever. My bass is a Schecter Elite-4 string which I upgraded with EMG35J pickups both bridge and neck. I like my tone alright in live settings. I don't prefer the SVT rig as it is my friend's rig and I don't feel like hawling my SWR rig around (though I like the tone of my SWR more). Once recorded, my bass just sounds flat, toneless, amateurish, and lost. It just sounds distant and lifeless. Even when playing with a bit more onboard tone boost and heavy slap play it still sounds a little bit distant and squashed. I really need help fixing this problem. I really hope it's an EQ or mixing/setting issue and not my bass/pickups in general because I can't afford a new bass right now. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! -Eric.
