Hello! When recording bass, either bassguitar, or upright bass, or kick drum I can't seem to get a real punch. I use an AKG d112 either at a distance or upclose to the source and it still does not make much of a difference. Often I need to cut a couple clicks off a freq around 120hz to 100 range, and it clears it up a little, but then I loose a lot of the sound. I also try tweak the source but with bass amps its hard to tell. And upright bass is mainly the player, and I he wasn' very good. Kick drum I can get to sound the best, but its still not that punch more of a thump. I'm not going for that deep thumping bass, I just want a clear punch. Messed around a little with using a 414 just to see if it makes a difference but that just gives me a lot of high and low but muddy middle. Suggestions please! I've tried direct out of the amp and micing at the same time. But not a DI yet. I think that might be my next purchase. Anyway how do you cope with your Low End? Thanks!
