I understand the challenges of trying to get a live bass tone recording Quietly! You can go D/I straight up through your interface or through a preamp or using a rack processor. Back around '93, I worked on a solo project and while my Jazz Bass sounded pretty good going D/I, I wanted to add more of a live feel to it, like going through an SVT mic'd up, but you can't do that when the littles are sleeping. The Bass Rockman also has a headphone out, so you can just noodle or rehearse without disturbing the neighbors. This was the novice home recording signal chain from Hell! Of course track limitations meant tracking wet as you hoped to hear the part in the mix. Mackie 1604 Alesis 3630 Tascam 488 8 track Cassette Pioneer Dual cassette for bounces Power amp for monitors and Pioneer was my Marantz 2252-B Monitors Infinity SM-82s Ensoniq EPS 8 bit for Kit and Sax section. Strat Plus through Scholz Sustainor through '93 Tweed Blues Deluxe '64 Jazz Bass through Scholz Bass Rockman, into the Mackie then to cassette. Vocals AKG C-1000 patched through the clean channel of my Digitech Valve FX guitar processor. The Scholz was known to get a fairly cool SVT sound with built in comp and chorus. These were my first attempts at trying to wear all the hats. I really wanted a sort of Savoy Truffle Big Sax Sound. Since I was tracking wet, the built in compression of the Rockman helped smooth the input volume playing Blue Steel Round Wounds fairly aggressively. Just cleaned up this one in Soundtrack Pro. Demo built around drum machine. Was supposed to be my pop millennium song. Also Jazz Bass into Scholz before going into the board. I liked the walking lines in this part.
