Hello all, I do a lot of home recording but am still getting a less than desirable bass tone when I record. I'm not sure if it's my settings or the way I place the mic, but I'm not sure. I use a Fender MIA P-bass and an Ibanez BTB and my amp is a Genz-Benz combo. I usually put the mic about a foot away from the speaker and a little to the right. I usually have my amp settings at 12 on my amp, have all the volume and tone up on my P, and the bridge pickup on my BTB with the mids, bass, and treble at 50 percent each. Help me! Oh, btw, I'm using an SM57 mic into my soundcard.
