When I plug my bass (Warmoth/ w/EMG 40's) into my crappy Tascam mixer at home, and run flat straight to the amp/monitors, my tone is what I've always hoped for. However, when I am on stage my FOH sound is below adequate. Help. On stage, I run DI out of my Demeter preamp into a Mackie 1604 (3:1 comp @ insert), which ultimately feeds a tri-amped system with eq, BBE, etc... No punch, and clarity is substandard on bass guitar, but the overall mix is great for a club band. Recently I've started using a 31 band eq off the insert, and am getting closer, but still not what I'm wanting. It seems that the guitar player (who owns the PA and mixes from stage) is running the main EQ to enhance other instruments, and those settings are not bass guitar friendly. To compensate for this I've been using the 31 band eq, but now I'm wondering if he is just running sound the wrong way. It's a tough call because, as I said, the overall mix is pretty good I've had bands with a worse overall sound due to lack of equipment, or cheaper equipment, and yet in those bands my personal sound was better. I think due to the purity of signal path (lack of eq, BBE, etc). This is getting lengthier than I'd hoped. Bottom line: any suggestions to get my FOH sound happening and still stay in this band?
