I want to know how you guys keep your knobs
so post away your neato settings!
that depends on what song you are playing, in a soft song I usually turn the bass up and the treble and mids down, and on a faster song, or a song that requires a clearer tone, I turn the treble and the mids up and the bass down
Usually flat EQ. I use the Shape button (100hz and 1kHz boost, 400Hz cut IIRC) on my preamp for slap sounds and silky fretless sounds.
The rest is done on my Bartolini 2-band EQ, usually a little boost on both bass and treble.
On my ampeg, i push the ultra low button, which cuts mids and boosts lows.
I leave the bass knob alone and boost the mids w/ the frequency selector knob at #4, which is around 2K i think... and i boost the treble to about 3 or 4 o'clock. I run my bass flat.
A lot of people say that boosting everying is moot, and i should just turn up, but i like the way this sounds more than i like running the rig flat and turning up... so yea...
i play mostly rock music but i'm going for what i think is the "ideal" punk tone.
I usually start with the bass flat and make rough tone adjustments on the preamp. I don't use compression because I have a bit of headroom on the amp and if I want the bass to bark a little all I have to do is dig in a little more.
Normally I use a bit of midrange boost and lay on the volume to bring the bass and treble up. If I need to fine-tune things then I adjust them on the bass as the situation dictates - so bass and treble are usually at about 12:00 and midrange is at 2:00. Most of my volume control comes from my fingers - I usually have the amp pretty well cranked up.
sorry i'm such a newbie but what do you mean by flat?
(all number proceded by o'clock)
I keep the (non defeatable) compression at about 10-2, depending on my mood/the room, gain at 10, volume at 12-1, Bass boosted one or two clicks, Low boosted one or two clicks, Mids flat, Highs Flat, Treble boosted one click.
Semi-parametric EQ- Lows at 3, mids at 1, highs at 3.
Almost flat. I crank the treble tone on both basses, one with a MM style pup, and the other I use the P pup. It's big, bad, and loud. The 410XLT rounds out the sound. It's pretty basic, really.
Well look at this.... i stop in to check on things and well off to Misc.Lol
it would've been Amps but you're a sly creature and throw in the "bass settings"
on my old ampeg I used, it had three dials; treble, mid, bass... my treble was up halfway... my mid was up like a quarter, and my bass was up between halfway and three-quarters.. it gave me a nice full sound with some good high end...
My EQ is flat for the most part with most of the sound settings coming from the Digitech BP-200. It's not for bass puritans, but it works for me.
My settings depend on the following:
Which bass I'm playing
What mood I'm in
Sometimes I don't use any EQ ("flat"), sometimes I tweak liberally.
