Janek- I know you and other players use a ramp so as to not dig in too much with your touch. I've been hesitant to do that yet, but I've found a problem with my playing: when soloing, I have a large dynamic range, which is good on one hand. On the other, when recording, it can be tough. For example: on one take, I'll moving along nicely, playing some melodic stuff, then I'll playsome faster passages, and the volume will almost half itself. Then I'll go for a high note or something, and the input will clip. It's not the setup of the bass or the pickup height, as these are in good order. It's the touch I give the bass. I don't want a ramp. Any suggestions? Thanks much. I know you're busy.
