Before anybody directs me back to the "Recording 101" thread I want to say I've carefully read through the articles that pertain to some of my questions, but I still require further assistance. I'm trying to record some bass guitar tracks and I'm pretty sure I have decent enough equipment to get the job done, but I lack experience and know how with the software side of recording. I can play the bass just fine, but I don't know where to start with how to get the best sounding recordings. My current setup: Ibanez Soundgear SR500M Bass guitar Behringer BXL1800 180WATT Amp Boss Keyboard Mixer KM-600 Standard M-audio USB studio interface AVS Audio Editor is the software I'm using for recording/editing What I'm currently struggling with is what settings to use on the software such as how high the gain should be, how to use the compressor, and how to get the best latency and overall just a general guide on hands-on recording do's and don'ts. If anyone can offer me any advice I would greatly appreciate it.
