Does any know how to get a real thick deep but yet CLEAR sound when recording Bass on to a recording track. It's done ALL the time by pros, so whats TYPICALLY used ? I know its gonna depend on what type of music I play, but I'd like to know some typical ways of doing it used by Rock, Jazz, and blues artists. In my arsenal, I have : Yamaha Aw-16 G Recorder Yahmaha NE-1 Bass parametric equalizer Ampeg Svt-4 ( with Pre amp out for recording) Aphex model 204 Arual exiter w/ optical big bottom BBE 882i and BBE482 signal processers Carvin Bunny Brunell Bass guitar Modulus Sonic Hammer Bass guitar Presently, I get "good" recoring results, but really, I would just like to know here if I'm missing something. It seems when I try to get a deeper sound its gets distorted. I dunno, is it my recorder's capability ? It's only a 16 bit recorder, so whats up with all this ? What the heck am I missing ? E mail me if you could with your responses. Thanks !
