Is their any way of making the bass easier to hear/louder on my computer? Like is their somewhere on the control panel where I can boost the bass or something?

Its on itunes, and can someone post a pic of what the settings should be on so I can hear the bass better.

Also shall I click on bass boost or just click onto eq and do settings from there?

What audio player are you using?

Itunes= in the bottom right/left corner there should be an icon for an Equaliser. To boost the bass. Start on the left handside and raise the first knob really high, then move on to the next one and push it up too, just not as high. You should have a kind of step effect when you are finished. The middle knob should be zeroed and anything beyond it should be cut

Jimmy signed off so I'll help you

Step 1: On the menu bar of iTunes click "View", then "Show Equalizer".

Step 2: From the left, boost the first frequency

Step 3: From the left, boost the second and third frequencies

Step 4: Leave everything else flat, but cut some of the high frequencies

Squier VM TB Bass
Squier Precision Bass(heavily modified)
Behringer 180 Watt Combo<--My EQ pedal made this sound decent O_o until I get my Gallien-Krueger half stack

When I click on the equaliser, I click on bass boost, but when I change the arrow thingies it changes from bass boost to manual...
#10
Ok I'm really confused now... by boost you mean higest or one notch higher?
#12
first off, use the edit button next time, please. pet peeve, lol.

I never really messed with the EQ, I usually grab a pick, move the thing closer to my amp, stuff like that.

boost is not all the way. and it should say manual once you start messing with it. ok?

iTunes has a good EQ for boosting the bass. Go to the EQ, and select the preset "Loudness".

Easy as pie.

If you do not know how to listen to what your equalizing, and if you don't know what each does, there is almost no chance for you to get a really good sound from messing with it. It would take a whole page of writing to explain, google it.

On Tormented's suggestion, I would listen to bass driven songs to get a feel for the instrument

that might help in the EQ'ing process.

Turn down the bass on your EQ settings. If the bass is cranked, everything may sound bassier and make it hard to pick out the actual bass.

If you've got a subwoofer and speakers, unplug the speakers and just have the subwoofer playing.

Look at tabs for the songs so you know what the bass is doing (guitar pro is amazing for this).

No.

That will kill most of any sound that your trying to actually hear.

I do not know specifically what your trying to do, but this suggestion most certainly will not do anything positive.

I've always found it quite handy if I just want to listen to a bassline from a song in order to learn it. Admittedly, everything else sounds like it's under water, but hey. It takes all the distractions away.

if you have vista then piss about with the audio setting (look for a reed speaker symbol rather than white) and look for a kareoke mode button which almost completely cuts out the singing, making it easier to uncover the bass in badly mixed songs.

I hate it when bands bury the bass.
