    Direct Bass : Think I have a tone I like



    I'm biamping in the Fractal, with an SVT (SV Bass 1) and a JCM800 (Brit 800 #34). The second amp was a 5150 at first, but the direct sound was a bit fizzy with it. Instead of dialing it in (lol) I just thought... What would Lemmy do?

    Also, playing bass cleanly is hard. I spent all day yesterday working on this track, and a big portion of it was getting the bass to sound good, and most of *that* was just me trying to clean-up my shitty performance .

    Getting great bass tones is an artform, and I have discovered Im at finger painting .

    I'll check out the clip after dinner. Do you have an x-over block to send the lows to svt and highs to the jcm800, or did I just miss that part?

    The frequency response nature of the amp models themselves is enough crossover for me

    I did try that, though, and it was pretty weak. I also tried dialing the lo/hi roll-offs on the cab sim blocks, also to less than stellar results. So, I decided to just run them as they come, and BAM. Sex was achieved

    Also...

    I forget why I put them in there, I think to do the thing you're suggesting

    I need to find a tutorial on running stereo output of this thing! Running both into the DAW and being able to mix between them would be awesome!

    i have recently started down the road to a good filthy but solid bass tone for recording. I'm finding it much harder to get something that sounds goo laid down in a track vs something that just sounds good in the room/band mix.
