hello all, new to the forum, and new to the world of home recording. let me get this straight : i am a big geddy lee fan (bass player and signer of rush) - what i am basically trying to do is to reproduce his sound. (i know it's impossible - but at least i have some "fun" trying to). here is my rig. so far, i have my beloved fender jazz bass, an orange ad200 mk3 amp, a rivera rock crusher loadbox. i live in a condo. i am not "allowed" to make big noise. that is why i purchased the rivera load box. after all my readings, i came to the conclusion that it was the best product to suits my needs. (i first tought i was possible to play a tube amp without a cabinet - through my readings i have learned an amp needs a proper load) i've also had a lot of conversation via email with the good people of rivera in california. (i live in canada) i received it yesterday. i have yet been able to produce any sound. (consequently, i have not heard my amp at home yet) i think i connected all the gear properly i.e. : output of amp --->input of the rock crusher --->into my focusrite scarlett 2i4 sound card. i'm working with apple's garageband (because i don't know anything else). by reading this, you understand i am just at the beginning of home recording. i am willing to learn so any comprehensive advice will be greatly appreciated.
