During the holydays if been recording bass for different projects. And this is my new recording chain. I'm using my Gallien Krueger MB 1001 RB 2 head as preamp. There's a balanced direct out signal on the front of the amp and I push the post EQ bottom to get the EQ settings recoded along with the bass signal. After that I go into the BlueTube DP V2 to get the warmth from the tubes. I have now upgraded to the wonderful and great sounding Focusrite Scarlett 18i20. And it has a really fast sync connection with the computer.
