maybe they'll all be made out of cardboard one day :rolleyes:
I am new to the world of recording and looking for some advice. I have just bought a fender mustang 1 amp for the purpose of recording, it came with Ableton live 8 but after messing around with it for 2 days it seems to still not be recording for me, even after reading/seeing loads of tutorials.
Can anyone tell me of an easier program to get to grips with recording? I've heard reaper is quite user friendly but thought id ask for advice before getting a program that won't do what I need.
I want to get the best out of it that i can.
I record direct into my PreSonus firestudio although i own a crate bt100 bass amp.
Should i use the amp?
Should I buy new pickups?
Could i get a better sound just from using EQ?
My bass just always sounds muddy
I recently purchased a Fender Supersonic head. I know valve amps are noisier than solid state but the clean channel on the amp, especially the Bassman setting has lots of background hiss. Even with no guitar plugged in and the volume completely off, there is a hiss that is very loud. The lead channel is fine and I have checked cables, different speakers, different wall socket, etc. I didn't notice this at the store as I was in a big room with quite noisy surroundings. I took the amp back and they sent it to Fender who have replaced a suspect preamp valve and apparently tested the amp.
Let me know what you think good or bad.

i just got a new deville and had it run to the marshall earlier today. i was a/b testing the difference between the tone (same settings) out of the fender speakers and out of the marshall. it seemed considerably different, especially when using the clean channel. the clean channel through the marshall sounded like a lower gain setting on the dirty channel, whereas it sounded all the way clean through the fender speakers.
