    if i were you i'd be looking at a better pre amp and maybe a nice DI like the avalon U5 for tracking bass.

    Good looking out Jimbo,
    Thanks for the feedback. You're the third person to tell me about the U5 so I'm definately going to look at that piece. I think they run around $400-700 on ebay. As far as mic pres, do you mean in addition to the Presonus Digimax LT? Because it has "eight dual servo mic preamps" according to the specs on their website. If so, what do you suggest?
