So, I've been using a lot of DI'd bass guitar in my recordings, and wanted to get more growl out of my bass guitar. So I ran it though Poulin's LexTac amp sim on the yellow channel with the bright setting and got this.

Think this is a good enough bass guitar tone?

Bass guitar is a Ibanez Gio with a GFS Pro PB pickup in drop C.

Yeah, the hiss, it's cause I'm going line in on my sound card. The LexTac is like Plexi sim, clipping may be fret buzz, regular bass strings in drop C with a cheap guitar.


The Xtac is NOT a plexi sim. It is a Bogner Ecstasy sim.
I've bought, sold, and traded more gear than I care to admit.

Like the guy above me said, it's a bogner sim. And yes it makes for a great bass amp, I use it all the time coupled with some SVX 8x10 impulses, heavy as fvck. Though I use it relatively clean, just a little bit of grit that's hardly noticeable in the mix, then I blend in a high and low passed grit track which I set up like this: bass di into any amp sim with a bunch of dist into any impulse that sounds good, pod farm/guitar rig/amplitube works for this, then finally into an EQ (High pass around 700-800hz, low pass around 2khz). I'm sure you can use lextac for some nice bass grit as well but I'm not really into that kind of stuff, experiment, and don't forget that cabinets can greatly enhance your bass tone.

Here's a 30 minute mix I did the other day with pretty much the above chain on bass (except half assed and I didn't cut enough useless frequencies plus guits sound shit, oh well): http://dl.dropbox.com/u/13494639/djentydjentdjent.mp3

Cool, I never thought doing that, sounds good. I use the same impulses, but I mix them with the Eden 4x10 D6 impulses too, sounds smoother. I might try that next time.

^ I didn't know it was a Bogner sim, it had a plexi setting, so I just assumed it was based off a plexi.
