For the curious ... my name is Mario
I'm not a professional musician but I love music, unfortunately I do not know music theory but I defend my ear and memory with a little help from technology
I live in the region of Andalucia on the Costa del Sol (Malaga) pure musical fusion zone (flamenco, Latin, Arabic music ...) but I especially love the jazz, blues, funky and bossa nova, although deep I like all music that moves my mind, body and fingers
My favorite and most inspiring artists are Paco de Lucia and Pat Metheny on guitar, Richard Bona, Victor Wooten,Marcus Miller and Jaco Pastorius to electric bass, and Pepe Bao and Carles Benavent a spanish bassist very very cool!. For a long time I was listening to Weather Report, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, George Benson, Level 42, Earth Wind and Fire, Kool and the Gangs, Uzeb, Pat Metheny Group and more to more bands
Now I am dedicated to electric bass but also make inroads with guitar and keyboards

Cort A5 five-string Daddario roundwouns Bartolini MK1 pickups

Guitars: Yamaha Silent nylon string guitar and Yamaha Pacifica electric guitar
Keyboard: Yamaha MX49
Amplifiers:Two Ashdown T15s 250wat (2 amplifiers in stereo set) (rehearsal) and MiBass 220wat Ashdown (at home)
Effects: Pandora PX Stomp and BossME50B
And a fun looper RC30 Boss loop for training "goofing" ....
Recordings techniques according to increasing complexity :
Interface Audio: FocusRite solo and Roland UA25
1)Primitive with Line In of my sound card or interface USB of the laptop through the Pandora Stomp or Boss ME50B ; stop using it because the new laptops no longer have entry specifies Line In although it was a good and simple method
2) Box injection DI--> Alpha mixer USB> Reaper/Audacity in Line in. The double signal bass in mixer: one in direct clean to pedal effects/amplifier, and second in direct XLR balanced signal to mixer
3)Bass on the amplifier input MiBass 220 signal with loop bass Boss ME 50B/Pandors Stomp EQ/effect, then out signal to Box Boehringer DI--> XLR DI out entry on XLR input interface audio and other signal clean on entry jack socket interface audio (double signal). The signal recorded on DAW is stereo track , one channel is via XLR and other clean channel, both then digitally mixed in Audacity for second editing effects (compressor, standardization, etc ...). Sometimes I turn the stereo track in mono with the option of obtaining a mixed signal Audacity on a single mono channel. It is a somewhat complex but very similar technique which is performed in some recording studios on real sessions records, getting the bass double signal through an injection box to record from mixer to DAW; so I can keep the amplifier setup EQ and effects unit jams sessions in real live without great from modifications of parameters when I disconnect the bass and their effects from the home studio
4) Bass --> Amplifier MiBass 220 --> DI out signal + Line out jack signal --> double signal XLR and jack in signal of the interface audio.
I used effect in loop in/out set of the amplifier MiBass
Software: Cubase 6/Reaper/Audacity
