I'm currently recording music using a focusrite 18i8 on logic pro x. I have Pro Tools 11, but have not yet learned how to use it. I am pretty unhappy with the results of my bass guitar recordings. Everything else that I record sounds awesome, but my bass just seems kind of uneven.
I imagine that some of this is due to how I'm playing the bass guitar. I play bass proficiently, but it's not my main instrument so as I said I'm sure that some of the volume inconsistencies are coming from my end.
I'm playing a hofner bass hooked up to a 25w fender bass amp, the tone that I can get is pretty decent, but when I record it using the line out from the bass amp into the focusrite, I feel like there is way too much volume variance and not enough punch. Some parts sound beautiful, and then other parts sound weak and muddled. Is there any sort of plug-in, preamp, or mixing technique that can help this? Perhaps some sort of plugin that makes an audio track have equal volume throughout. Does anyone have any insight for this?
