I recently thanks to the fantastic help on this forum bought my first Bass guitar. I play lead and acoustic normally so its all new to me learning Bass. I mainly just do home recording for fun and needed a proper bass sound rather than use an effect on my guitar pedal with a Les Paul type guitar.
However I am struggling to get the right sound. Its fine through a bass amp but I record via the PC through either my M Audio interface or my Zoom G3 Guitar pedal. Now clearly the latter is designed for a six string guitar not a bass. I did a recording last night and just added a bit of reverb but it sounds a bit thin. Someone described it as sounding like it was being played through six inch speakers.
Has anyone put a bass through a guitar pedal? What sort of effects and stuff should I be looking to use to get that really meaty low end sound?
Its just a cheap peavy Millennium Bass nothing fancy
