I record my Fender P-Bass direct into my Roland 1680 OR sometimes via a JoeMeek mic pre/comp/eq. I just don't get such a great tone. What do you recommend I get/do to help my sound? If I could emulate anyone's sound it would be McCartney. I've heard good AND bad about the Bass POD. I've heard mostly rave reviews on the SansAmp BD DI. Have heard a little about Countryman DI. I also have a Fender Blues Deluxe Amp which I've utilized a few times (via preamp out) for recording bass. I feel like I'm doing what I should re compression and EQ. I just need something for a little more presence. Thanks!
