Hey, I've recently routed my interface so when I play stuff in my DAW it'll come out my amp (pretty neat way to use VSTs etc while playing live). Anyways, I was wondering if I did playbacks via my amp if it would blow my speakers because of the bass in my songs? I usually got some low bass stuff going on and I know if you plug a bass into a guitar amp it'll blow the speakers so I'm assuming that'd be the case here but I'd just like to verify.
It isn't the frequencies of a bass that blows the speaker, it's the attack. So really, it depends on how this bass of which you speak is generated.
How its generated? Could you tell me what you mean by that? I just want to know so I don't like screw my speakers up if I try it
Well, is it a recording of an actual bass guitar, a synth pad, detuned guitar, etc?
Oh, they're soundfonts and different bass synths from the program Nexus.
If they are really percussive you could be in trouble. ie something that is a sample of a Precision bass being slapped and/or popped you could be in trouble, if it's a sample of an upright bass or a strings section you'd be fine. It's all about the attack.
Hmm, well alright. Most of it isn't percussive so maybe I'll take a chance on those ones. Thanks for the help
Watch your speaker. If it looks like it's trying to jump out of the box, stop.
