I apologize in advance if I've posted this in teh wrong forum. I'm sure the moderators will correct me. Anyway... I plan on recording in a few months and I use a lot of distortion in a few of my bands songs. What is the best way to go about doing this? I searched the forums and couldn't find the answer I was looking for. This is my gear and situation: I use a Stingray and my amplification is an SWR intellar Overdrive pre-amp and powered by an Ampeg SVT Classic. I run all that through an Ampeg 810E. I WANT to retain the beefy distorted tone that I get out this set-up. Past attempts at recording have sounded like watered down, high pitched annoying fuzz. Another problem is my use of chords w/distortion. Is there any way to record distorted bass chords without having them come out like poo? Can anyone recommend any kick ass distored bass songs/tracks I could check out for reference? Thanks for your help!
