    Well it could be the gear you are recording with but it's kinda hard to get a proper fell for the riff.Also just a little snippet like that is hard.Put in context!

    How low are you playing? It sounds like you're playing between Low B and E and that's not the best judge of tone. A 10-20 second clip set around A to E is where the real tone of the bass is gonna come from. I prefer playing in A (5th Fret E string bass) for a good judge of bass tonal character.

    i recorded this just..ignore this riff i stole the main pattern from 'World So Cold' by mudvayne.

    But hows the tone? (i used Sound Forge to record and it gives a much better quality than audacity)
