Sorry for the rookie question... I am starting out recording on an 8-track HD recorder, and am having trouble getting a good bass sound. Wait, this is really an effector question... I bought a preamp box called the Trilogic bass preamp a few years ago when I started out, and had never used it in recording. I tried to do some research on it (there's also a short thread in this forum, too), but I found out this thing was quite a rarity... hardly anybody has ever heard of it! Sounds OK when I'm practicing through an amp, but sounds terrible DI'd to the 8-track. So bad, that I'm starting to doubt that this box is made for this kind of thing. Or should I be recording with a mike line as well? Whoops, sorry, that was a small recording question on the side... Have I got my definitions mixed up? I thought that preamp = DI box. I would appreciate a cold slap on the face. Thanks.
