johhny2gun hey man,
a couple things im new at recording so theres better people to ask but what I an tell is that 1. use a quality bass (this track is a fender jazz with maple neck) 2. bass > multi-fx pedal with DI > protools. No amp/mic. 3. If anything, I might add eq/compression although this track at the end, I added a delay fx at the end on the slap part..hope that helps. For a comparison listen to one of my first tracks on here Track # 64310 (its cheaper warwick rockbass with rosewood neck and most likely no DI as I was new at recording)

MusicWorx Thank you for taking the time to reply to my query. Compression is something I have not experimented with...k, I will do so. And agreed, I require a better Bass (once I feel I deserve/afford one). I can fit a deck of cards under the 12th (truss adjustment).

And the "Twang" sound is from slap technique? OK, I will take these things into consideration and practice some more...thanks again!

johhny2gun its all experimenting, but the main thing is the direct input (DI) to bring the bass level up to a proper level..the bass can come later. For me, I have a DI/FX in a Multi-FX unit so I just go with its DI and whatever else I think I need at that moment. +1

MusicWorx I found a free off the Web VST GComp (compressor) and along with the SHB1 VST (amp). I am getting an adequate sound running DI thru my steinberg UR22 Digital interface. I have Guitar rig 5 demo...some great sounds there but demo times out at the worst of times and occasionally crashes/corrupts the file I am workin on. One of these f/x units yu speak of may be in my future...thanks for your help, sounding better already. +0
